I took a beadstringing class last year and to my complete surprise, I'm still with it. This weekend I did a few pieces...images below!
Christmas charm bracelet - I lose a lot of earrings...this was made from those earrings attached to a simple chain with a jump rings.
Wire-wrapped bracelet with glass beads and silver plate wire. I made the clasp, too!
Natural gemstone beads (not sure which kind...they were a mix), silvery glass beads, a pendant that was once an earring in Target's $1.00 bin (I have another one just like it!), a clasp made by me and earring wires from some store.
All of my wire is non-tarnish silver plate wire from http://www.parawire.com/
Found them at a bead show in King of Prussia and I love that even after you work with it, it doesn't lose it's shine!
More babbling about these can be found on my blog
...thanks for looking!
