I took a beadstringing class last year and to my complete surprise, I'm still with it.  This weekend I did a few pieces...images below!

Christmas charm bracelet - I lose a lot of earrings...this was made from those earrings attached to a simple chain with a jump rings.


Wire-wrapped bracelet with glass beads and silver plate wire. I made the clasp, too!

Natural gemstone beads (not sure which kind...they were a mix), silvery glass beads, a pendant that was once an earring in Target's $1.00 bin (I have another one just like it!), a clasp made by me and earring wires from some store.  Wink All of my wire is non-tarnish silver plate wire from http://www.parawire.com/ Found them at a bead show in King of Prussia and I love that even after you work with it, it doesn't lose it's shine!

More babbling about these can be found on my blog...thanks for looking!

My favorites are the second bracelet and the earrings-awesome job!  I'm still practicing my wire wrapping, but I still have a lot more practicing to do before I'm as good as you!
