I absolutely love looking through all of the wonderful things that you guys have created, so I figured it was about time that I got off my butt and put up some pictures of my own jewelry. Here are a few relatively recent necklaces. I hope you like them!
This one is composed of numerous strands of red and turquoise-colored seed beeds interspersed with coral and turquoise chips.
After finishing this necklace I decided I didn't really like it. The size of the focal piece just bothered me. So I eventually ended up taking it apart and making the necklace pictured after it.
Here is the re-built necklace, which I like much better. The large coral pendant still looked weird so I replaced it with a metal focal component from an old necklace of my mom's which she gave me to take apart.
This necklace is made with onyx rounds in various sizes and shell drops which I wrapped with wire.
I made this one out of freshwater pearls, amazonite chips and shell beads. I ended up giving it to my mother-in-law this past Christmas.
And finally, this necklace, which I made last month following the pattern by Ludmila Raitzin in the April 2010 issue of Bead and Button. I wore it to a wedding recently and was pretty pleased with myself when I was complemented on it by several people.
Thanks for looking and happy beading!
