This is probably the last piece of jewelry for me for 2012.  It is a beaded fringed bracelet called Sparkle.  It is loaded with pearls, crystals, leaf shaped beads and seed beads.  It is very sparkly and shiny - would be beautiful for a wedding.

More Earrings

Two more pair of earrings - they are listed in my Etsy Shop.  I also finished a new fringed bracelet that I will list later today.  It is coming down to the end of 2012.

I decided to take a break from beadweaving for one night and make some simple earrings.  Too bad I do not keep track of the beads I buy and what the stones are - well I know the top are wooden! I made 4 pair here are two and I will post the other two tomorrow.

Blue Pendant

A pendant in shades of blue.  I made this for someone but changed my mind and am making her a different color.  But this one is nice!

Another New Pendant

Another new jewel encrusted pendant - this one in bronze and neutral tones.  I love making these and have started one more in blue.  I also spent some time today picking out some new beading projects so a bead embroidery cuff and collar is upcoming as well as some bracelets.  I think 2013 is going to be the year of the spiral for me ; )

Lime and Purple Pendant

This is my second pendant and one of my favorite color combos.  I love making these little pendants - they are quite addicting.  I am doing another one in bronze and neutrals and it is quite nice too. I know I need to move on to something more substantial like a new cuff or collar but right now I am having fun.

Christmas Pendant

Just finished this new Christmas Pendant. It is from a pattern I bought from Beverly Ash Gilbert. Not only is it beautiful but it was easy and so much fun to make. I can see me making a few of these babies - I just need to change them on the chain - what could be easier!  I am planning on the next in shades of lime green and purple.

I took some better photos of my new freeform peyote necklace today.  I decided to call it Viridis and here it is in all it's finished glory and finished is the key word!  It is listed in my Etsy Shop here.

Viridis - Freeform Peyote Necklace

So FB will not let me add photos tonight - I give up.  I have finished my green freeform necklace and am calling it Viridis.  I took a quick pic of it with my phone but tomorrow when it is bright (I hope) I will take some more pictures for Etsy. This was just a quick shot on my kitchen table.  I really like how this turned out very interesting and different for me.  I never like green much but this is a dark emerald color and looks good.  Time to move on to something new ; )

More Work on Freeform Necklace

I am almost finished with the length on this necklace - right now I am working on some surface decoration.  Then I will decided if it needs a bit more length before I attach the closure.  I love this necklace it is really amazing.

What I Am Working On

I started this emerald green freeform necklace awhile ago.  Then I started making the Christmas earrings and I lost focus. Now I am back and I intend to finish it.  A friend gave me an old green seed bead necklace and I have had it for a long time.  The color is really beautiful and I paired it with some green metallic seed beads for an accent.  These are all size 8 beads so this necklace is not wimpy.  I have a lot of work to do just to finish the length and the I am going to work some more layers over the top with dark green pearls and more seed beads. I originally was going to have a focal but changed my mind about that. I hope the world doesn't end before I finish this ; )
