Tiny beads and larger ones.
Here's some of the things I've made for Santa and he'll deliver them to friends and family.



Full set for my sister in law. Necklace, bracelet, ring and earrings.


These I've made by the tons. All of my friends have them, and most of their friends too. Easy to make and fun to give away.




Originally made to wear with an eveningdress.


For my youngest daughter.(11 years)


For my mother in law. She'll look nice in red.

Hope you like them.

Hmmm...a tutorial for the brooch might be a difficult one...I can't even remeber myself, but I will try to remake it, and take photos while I do it so maybe in a couple of days...
I'll try. Promise. Just have to finish the knitting first... *busy*

Thanks for all the kind words Smiley

The kind of string you use for fishing....nylon. You need to use a really thin string so that you can string it a couple of times for strength.
Otherwise it's easy.

About the promised tute...I don't think I can make it. I tried yesterday to make it all over again, but I can't figure out how I did in the first place.
I made that brooch improvising as it came along...
You're welcome to copy it, but don't ask me how Smiley

Thanks for trying!  I do that all the time too -- make something and then can't recreate it.  I started a bead journal somewhere with patterns and all....of course that's only good If I actually know where it is and use it.  Hope your family and friends love it all.
