Wanted to share these last few pieces that I really enjoyed. A mix here of bead stringing, dangly earrings (who doesn't love dangly earrings?!) and a sweet cuff bracelet that was WAY easier than it appears at first glance Wink

C&C welcome - thanks for looking!

I really really love that bracelet!  I would wear it all the time.  Did you use a tutorial or anything to make it?  I happen to have a jar of glass pearls I recently scored for cheap...

Thanks for your comments~!

As for the bracelet - I had seen one that I really enjoyed and while I've done some 3 strand weaving with glass pearls I just wasn't getting the bulk I wanted... and then (as it usually does with jewellery) an idea came to me in a dream.... literally - my husband is used to being woken up at odd hours of the night to me with a sketchpad and a flashlight mumbling to myself about bead size and findings.... anywho - it struck me - don't weave, string! The centre section of the cuff is actually a whole bunch of beads on a eyepost - so a piece of wire with an eye at each end... then you just use two strands and string through the eyes of the post with a bead on either side to "mask" the eye (that's the bit of silver you see between each glass pearl on the outside strand) and continue on from there - you could make an entire gauntlet this way if you had eyeposts that were long enough! Super easy and looks like some fab bling!

If I make another one (this one has gone to a lovely home with a friend) I'll take step-by-step pics and post them here, but it's really so simple (and hopefully my description isn't too rambling) that you probably won't need them!

I especially love the earrings, it's always been a favorite design of mine.
