Hey everybody!  I don't have many friends that craft, so I thought this would be a fun place to share my work.  I've been snooping the threads here for a while anyway, when I need inspiration!  Wink  So here are a few projects I've done over the years.  This is just a snippet of some of my bead work.

That's my gram in the background!  These are sterling silver, dyed fresh water pearl, and tensha beads.

These are also sterling silver and I think that's called Paua shell.

Cut out Buffalo Nickels, and feathers (Can't remember what sort of metal that is!)

Quartz flowers, Delicas, crow beads, turquoise, and a bamboo spacer bar all put together with sterling silver!

Seed beads, coconut, a quartz flower, and a shell charm that came on a purse I bought in Japan.

Comments much appreciated, my lovelies!

I actually didn't cut the coins myself.  I would love to learn how to do it, but haven't built up the courage quite yet.  Me + Point/ Cutty Things = Stitches.  I believe I bought them from FireMountainGems a few years ago, though.

Thank you all so much for the compliments and the welcome!  I am every so appreciative!   CheesyWink

Very nice, lovely work! Welcome to craftster! I don't have any friends that craft either so this is a great place to share Smiley

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
