Last weekend my best friend Caroline rediscovered her love for costume moves based on historical frenchnovels. I decided that I must celebrate that with making small piece of jewelry in most "royal" colors of old gold and red. I started up with idea of making just a simple circle wheel pedant but somehow that project got bigger and bigger. I ended up with 4 piece set- earing's, bracelet,ring, and necklace. If I knew at the beginning that it will be a set I would use some beads in different places but I don't have a heart to take those apart and start all over again.


And this is chocker I made to match my scull earing's. I used plastic beads, crocheting thread and embroidery needle (what a great feeling after working with microscopic beads and needles).

Those are wonderful.  I wouldn't dare take them apart!  I always like sets better when they have some variation instead of being too 'matchy' anyway.  Did you have a pattern for those of make it up as you went along?  I'd love it if you could post some kind of tutorial for the bracelet. I'm going to have to try to make something similar.  It is beautiful.

Thank you guys for complements
 Bracelet design comes from http://www.beadsmania.com/user/recipe/index.html in my humble opinion that webpage is the best source of beading patterns  (just ignore the fact that it is in Japanese)

Earrings, ring and necklace are my own designs, but based on that http://www.rubysbeadwork.com/WheelPat.html
