This is by no means my first take at making jewelry but I felt compelled to show it off. I made these today in a brief period of boredom (the DH is stationed overseas and I am a homebody) and everyone here at home says they are pretty good. I am still not sure what to do with them. I kinda wanna keep the Christmasy one, and wear it for something special. The rest might be Christmas gifts but I dunno, I like them a lot.

2 Necklaces made from random beads. Strung on wire.



2 Random Bead Bracelets



choker with Green beads and pearls, and a Christmas necklace with green teardrops and gorgeous big red beads.



they are all strung on wire with twisty-clasps. I like them a lot. Tell me what you think!

thanks! I like those too!

Is it just me...... or does the dangly bead on the pearl and green one look rather suggestive in between those 2 round disks? lol I just now noticed that

Okay I'm taking the high road on that one and saying it looks like a moose...the long NOSE with the big ears!!!  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy  Honestly I thought that one was kinda neat til you said that, now I can't look at it with a straight face. Grin

I admire your courage in random stringing the beads like that, totally works...I am so insecure I feel it's always got to be all balanced and symmetrical... Roll Eyes Tongue

LOVE that Christmasy necklace, I can see why you'd want to keep it.  Why not? Early prezzie to yourself! Grin  Always a good idea!  I tend to give everything away...gotta keep some things after all! Grin

sorry if i offended you. I just thought it was funny (and DH is away so..... the mind tends to wander).  I get the designs in my head and just try to work them out.  Sometimes it works out pretty nice.  I have made a few for my mom that she just loves (in fact, the  green one is her christms gift...matches her lovely eyes). I need to post pics of the necklaces i did for  my bridesmaids when I got married

You didn't offend me.  I thought the 3 smiley faces would have told you that?  I got a good chuckle out of it actually.   Grin

I'd love to see those bridesmaid necklaces you made.

I like all of them but my favorite ones are the colorful ones.

Is it just me...... or does the dangly bead on the pearl and green one look rather suggestive in between those 2 round disks? lol I just now noticed that

And if you wouldn't have mentioned it I wouldn't even have noticed! It's still pretty but if you give it to someone don't mention that (they might not want to wear it!)
