I haven't posted in awhile, but haven't done a lot of beading.  I made this for the recent Alice in Craftsterland swap.  I chose amber/topaz toned crystals to represent the tea at the Mad Tea Party, and interspersed it with some Alice inspired charms - a rabbit, a key, a crown, etc.



I really seriously started hating crimping after this project though, how annoying it is to do over and over again.  But I do like the overall effect of the necklace and would likely make it again.



Other than that, I have also made some more tile pendents



a few pins and cameos with Diamond Glaze (a friend liked them, so I made a couple extra for her too)



and some knicknacks like that, including a hat pin to go with the tophat I made and posted in the knitting forum awhile back

Thank you everyone.  I am thinking of ways to mix up this style with beaded ropes or chokers (and thinking of making one in clear and icy white to comemorate the time a bus boy dropped ice water on me in a very posh restaurant).
