I'm new in this forum, but thought that I could as well share a piece of jewelry or two with you. ;)

This beaded donut was finished yesterday, although I designed this pattern some time ago. Fast and easy to make, and yet it doesn't look too bad (hopefully). ;)

It consist of wax pearls, seed beads of different size and fire polished beads. It is double sided and each side can be made of different color. Haven't tried it yet though, but probably will do that soon.

Since I haven't been active on any other jewelry forum, I wonder what people would think about the things I make. So I will be very grateful for some opinions. :)

This is gorgeous, I just love the colours and the workmanship. If it is easy to make, it sure doesn't look like it!

That's very nice Smiley
I like the fact that you can make each side with different colors, too.

I think this is lovely!  Did you use wire or sting?

Sorry, didn't notice the question...

I use mostly the beading needle and a fishing line. Wink
Working with wire too sometimes, but not when the pattern requires passing through the bead more than once.
