11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / New chain and amazonite necklace on: September 30, 2007 10:42:45 AM
My friend's birthday is coming up, and I hope she likes this!  It's sterling silver chain, amazonite, black diamond Swarovski crystal and a few crystal Swarovski and silver spacers. 

(sorry, some of the pictures aren't the best...I'm asking for a new camera for Christmas!)





12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Some of my finished pieces...opinions please!! (picture heavy) on: September 24, 2007 06:49:20 PM
Hey everybody...I've been beading for a couple of years now, and these are some of my newer projects.  Let me know what you think!


Choker...I was playing with the awesome lampwork focal bead and wanted to make it the centerpiece!

Turquoise heshi and rondelles intertwining with some red coral pieces I got in Florida.

Oh wire wrapping...how I loathe doing it, but love the results!  Wire wrap, gold chain, and some amazonite and Swarovski mixed in.

A goldstone graduated strand that I rearranged and added some goldstone rondelles to. 

Take that Express!  You wanted $28 for this necklace, I got it done for under $8  Grin

A graduated strand of jasper (can't remember what kind, sorry!) that I rearranged and added some Swarovski to to space it out. 

Various pieces of sterling silver chain (I think 9-10 pieces on each side) that are joined together by wire-wrapping crystal AB Swarovski crystals...I'll try to get a better picture up!

Czech glass, Swarovski, and some black onyx. 

A three strand twisted necklace using a jumble of mixed beads that I had purchased together (Laura Liska makes the BEST color mixes!) and then added some bigger beads to it. 

One of my favorites...two stranded, larger turquoise nuggets and spacers on the first strand, then curved sterling silver beads and rondelles spaced on the second strand. 

Coral and turquoise and a cool hand-carved wooden center bead that I got at a shop back home. 

First pair:  Chinese lampwork and some gold chain.  Second pair: Curved sterling silver tubes and Swarovski pearls.  Third: Swarovski crystals and gold filled "potato chip" beads. 

PMC charms.  I'll try to get a better picture of it!
