I Love beads. I have way to many yet i keep buying more, Seed beads in particular are nearly impossible for me to resist, so when I saw this challenge back in the beginning of January I know I had to do it, then I (of course) completely forget about it for the entire month of January. so this is what I came up with in the 4 days I had left.

I've never tried beading like this before so it was a lot of trial and error, I'm pretty happy with the outcome, but I think I need to make some super long shoulder dusters Smiley

I added jump rings to the top so I can switch them out on my gold Lever Backs (I'm allergic to everything else), that's why the tops look a bit weird.

The necklace pendent thing was an after thought, I ran out of time so It's just strung on a cord for now, not really sure what I'm gonna do with it yet.


I also made a mermaid and a faerie!
Little creatures made with seed beads and wire, made up as I went along. pretty useless... but cute!:)

Comments and critiques always appreciated Smiley

There's some beautiful beading there. The necklace makes me think of peacock feathers.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I need those blue earrings (Also I would not mind having your hair to hang them against), but I definitely need the earrings  Cheesy.

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.

They're all lovely, but I really love your "useless" mermaid,  she's so cute.
