Dreamkeeper Ring



Finished my Dreamkeeper Ring last night.  Here is the finished pictures.  I had a lot of fun making this ring and I really learned a lot about RAW and ERAW.  I can't believe I made this - especially with the small size 15 beads.  I am planning on making another one to go with this one so I can wear a pair.   Time to move on to something new - I hate it when I do not know what I am going to be beading next - I like to have a couple of projects picked out.

Dreamkeeper Ring - In Progress



Work in progress on Marcia DeCoster's Dreamkeeper Ring.  I bought this pattern at the end of the year but just got around to making it now.  I love it and it is so sparkly.  The pattern can be found here. It is a great pattern and I am not that confident doing RAW.  My biggest problem was working with the long length of doubled thread - but I did it!!!!  I need to finish the band and it is all done.  I need to make another to go with this one because I think they work best in pairs.

Echo - Beaded Pendant and Bead Necklace



Echo is a beaded pendant and necklace and the second project I have completed in 2013.  The cab is a gold/brown mix color surrounded by many layers of seed beads. Finished off with spiral rope and long beaded fringe. The necklace is made up of medium sized faceted picture jasper beads. It has a copper loop and toggle closure. The cab measures 2 inches in length and is 1 1/2 inches wide. The fringe at its longest point is 6 1/2 inches. The necklace measures 15 inches plus the closure (16 inches total). It fits close to the neck. This necklace is listed in my Etsy Shop here.
