Something got accomplished anyway...

Made lots of pretties on my 3 day weekend...house isn't cleaned, laundry isn't done ...but damnit I made some things! This one is inspired by my sweet internet friend Christie who loves jem stones I'm told :) I got into my stash *big sigh*. I know I have to part with some... This is my first gold piece. It's 18 gauge hammered gold filled wire. I used some of my much beloved carnelian briolettes with a jade briolette for the center. I'm not sure if it's too "cute"... I've been on a flower kick since I saw the Karla Cam from Aunties Beads. Just need to get some chain for this one and it will be done.






This is another weekend creation that I'm pretty proud of too...took forever to wire wrap all that fine gauge silver!





It's made from glass that is coated with something to give it that color. I just love using hill tribe silver in my designs too!This is the matching necklace




I won't bore ya with all the rest..if you would like to see them, stop in my shop anytime! Until next time~ Happy Beading!

I'm sorry to interrupt your flow, but I had to tell someone: I got my second sale today! It was for fabric labels that I'll post pictures of soon and I'm dancing again! Ok, back to looking in your shop.

Oh wow, you made some beauties this weekend. That carnelian pendant is gorgeous. I'm flattered I inspired you to get into your stash. :)
I admire your patience wire wrapping the earrings with the teeny gauge wire. It's SUCH a pretty outcome, but I don't think I'd be able to hang with the process. LOL!

I forgot to say...small world! Just last nite I happened onto the Auntie's Beads videos. I LOVE that funky sterling flower ring the lady wears in the videos! I kept pausing videos to see it and decide if I could make something similar. :)
