I decided that everyone was getting some jewellery as part of their holiday gift this year, so these are some of the gifts. Photographed in the strange light that we have today.

Actually this eclectic one is for me to wear to parties. I wear a lot of black so I thought this would be a nice change, and I love strange and random bead selections! The inspiration for this came from the smaller strand which I got from laughingLark in one of the STS swaps. It has a small, medium and large bead strand which can be worn so they're separate or twisted together.



And of course not everyone has such a random sense of style so I made the rest tailored to the recipient.

For my Mum: green glass and shell


For friends:

I made a few variations on these for more friends, but they're similar to these just different colours.

And the bags I made that they're going to be given in...


I hope they like them!

Thanks Atsuko! I haven't done much beading before using the silver wire (just threading) so I was pleasantly surprised with how these turned out.

Ooh! I'd definitely wear that colourful one! (And I'm one to wear a lot of black as well!)
