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.

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 ; )

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.

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 ; )

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 ; )
