I know I don't submit often.  I guess I just feel weird only posting one necklace at a time.  I'd rather give you guys a lot of eye candy at once!  Since my last post, I got some of my work accepted into a really nice art gallery, which is really exciting. Smiley

So here we go... my most recent work...  All comments, critiques, etc are encouraged and welcomed!


"African Sunset"
Made with 15/0 japanese seed beads, faceted carnelian pebbles, czech glass, Kazuri beads (handmade in Africa), and silver accents






"Waterlily"
Made with 15/0 japanese seed beads, angelite, swarovski crystals, sterling silver accents, and a cute little sterling silver fish charm






"Autumn Beaded Bead Caps"
Made with 15/0 japanese seed beads (of course), faceted red agate, swarovski crystals, antique copper accents






"Dogwood Blossom"
Made with 15/0 japanese seed beads, glass pearls, silver accents, peridot chips






Which one's your favorite?

Wow!  These are amazing!  I think my fave is the first one, the red one, I love how the colors pop.  I have a book about making beaded flowers, guess I better get some supplies and start working so I can have my own lovely creations Smiley

African Sunset and Waterlily are my two favorites, but I think they're all gorgeous!

crazymoon, I've wanted to do a dogwood for a while.  In one of my yards as a child, we had one, and I always looked forward to watching it bloom.  Such a pretty tree!

TheSapphireMoon, which book do you have?

squire_inaria, those two are my favorites as well!

puppy_girl, thanks so much! Do you have a favorite?

Love the dogwood the most - beautiful all of them, however.   Cool

They're all gorgeous, but I think my favorite is Waterlily, with African Sunset as a close second. Beautiful work!
