I like to make earrings and have started a few Halloween-themed polymer clay beads for a future project.  Tried my first anklet this week, am pretty happy with how it turned out.  I emailed my daughters today asking them what theme they would like for a loaded charm bracelet for Christmas so I guess I've jumped off of that cliff!  Any tips/hints on that would be greatly appreciated!

Necklaces, bracelets, rings... I enjoy stringing seed beads and watching the projects grow slowly (much like others love knitting). Mostly I've been doing 4 types over and over again for quite a while, but have only started wearing them on a daily basis for about two years. And although I have several drawers for my bead collection, I like to keep part out to be able to actually see them.

It does not due to dwell on dreams and forget to craft.

Ahhh, thanks for twisting my arm Jennie  Tongue If I sign up now, I'd have to send out late Sad I'll have to see if there's still a spot a little later. Always next time, eh? I'm off to make some clay beads in any case. <3 beads

I like to use beads in embroidery projects to give some different textures but I think my favourite use for them is in necklaces.

I love to make earrings, necklaces, memory wire bracelets and loaded charm bracelets. I was part of the latest Loaded charm bracelet swap, it was too much fun. Tongue I just might do it again. But most of all I Love to make rosaries. I kinda wear them as art pieces, and want to start selling them also. I would love to learn how to do seed bead projects and use them in my crochet. Cheesy

I think everything looks better with a bead or two on it. Wink I love to make jewelry and I like to bead flip flops. LOL I know it sounds silly but I think they are lovely.

Now that Halloween is close I like to make beaded spiders. Smiley

I will be gone for a few days, need to craft for and give a baby shower, but I will be back on Sunday. Smiley

I like making earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings.  I love wire wrapping and bead weaving!  Basically I like to try any jewelry making technique.

I like to make necklaces the best I think. Though I've been having some success with rings as well.

Beading is just fun all the time. I'm going to sign up if I can accurately inventory my things sometime tomorrow and no one beats me to the last couple slots. I could use some new prettys to bead with.

I am looking to do a personal swap with (or will outright pay for) a knitter who could make an adult sized knitted t-rex sweater for Christmas. If anyone is interested, please let me know.
