On another note, I just checked this again and I really like the pearl earrings with the silver spacer bead, same one as the purple catseye (maybe) with the silver spacer in it...those are simply stunning!  Nice, nice, nice job!

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

Excellent work!
I really like the cylindrical white ones with the black wirework. You'd never know you're a beginner. You're gonna do great things, kid.

Werd to berger.

Ok, I am kind of a beginner too. And I am planning on going to the bead store soon enough to get materials. So could you possibly list those materials that you used? Like what they are all called. I know you used chain and eye pins, but what else?
That would be very helpful.
Thanks  Smiley

Hmm...Well, I've accumulated so many misc. bead items over the past few months, I'll try to remember what all I used.... Wink
-earwires or fish hook wires (that's what the hooks are called at the craft store I go to)
-eyepins
-headpins
-22 gauge wire, for most of them
-small and large jump rings
-small jewelry tools to cut and bend the wire
-chain

That's all I can think of!  I'm discovering, as many experienced folks here can tell you, that there are tons of different findings that are really nice you can use - But hopefully this will help you start out....
