I haven't been busy or anything.  Tongue

first we'll start with 2 sets that I made from some new beads I got the other day from a neat little bead store not far from me:



the last one was made with all crystal clear drops, but since I didn't have any other way to display it, it's on a red background and the beads don't look crystal clear.  and the red one looks even more red thanks to the background too.  Tongue

then we have a set that I made all from stuff I already had:

where did I get those awesome turquoise findings, you ask?  from a bottle of nail polish!  Grin  that's the cool new thing I'm seeing; bringing new life to old, ugly, or tarnished pieces, or making findings in any color you need with nail polish!  so I painted the ring (it's hard to see but it's there!), the earring drops, and the bead on the necklace.  I think it looks pretty cool if you ask me.  the black rose come from a swap a while back.  she had also sent some white roses and when I got the idea to paint those findings, I came up with a BRILLIANT idea for the white roses too!  I just don't have the color nail polish I need, but I have to go out later today, so I'll pick it up then.  Wink

what do you think of my newest creations?

Nail polish has become a secret weapon for me lately, too... but it never occurred to me to use it on jewelry!  This opens up a WHOLE WORLD of new possibilities now! Thanks!

The first and third ones are my favourites.  I love the colour and chunkness of the first one, and the delicacy of the third one.  I don't usually care much for oranges, but the ones you used are yummy.
