I made these a few weeks ago, and haven't had time to post - so I thought it's about time I shared again...

I finally got around to using my pearls - a pearl, crystal and silver necklace - the pearls are peach-coloured with clear faceted crystal inbetween. It's very feminine and understated...not flashy...so subtle bling if there is such a thing   Tongue



And matching earrings:

This one my bf (a.k.a. the critic) calls a little over the top.  What can I say - I like stars (and green - so I guess green stars would make me REALLY happy?).  Black opaque glass beads on memory wire, with black bugle beads and one strand with pearlescent bugle beads.  The stars stand out and don't flop so ideally this would go with a nice strappy dress - definitely no collar!



While doing the other piece for a coworder's wedding, I carried on with the dark blue beads and came up with this...I'm not sure if 'm entirely happy with the straight pieces...maybe at some point I'll have an urge to change them, but for now...



That's all for now...and to think I went and bought more stuff today...I really need to stop buying findings and beads!  Wink

Thanks everyone!

 I must admit that I like working with the pearls - they make a wonderful contrast with crystals and beads, and really do look elegant. As for the stars - I just love starts so I'm alway buying star beads and things....oh the obsession!

Oh!

I like how they're all based on the same thing but the colours and shapes make them all very different. I really like the first two...

Good stuff!
