1  Beaded Lanyard with Matching Earrings in Beads: Completed Projects by alo42d on: October 04, 2011 11:26:38 PM
its been along time since i have been on here and posted but i have been doing a little different to supplement my income. and these are just one of 10 different colors that i have done. i forgot to take pics of the others. but you know what i have been up to. i made these for a neighbor who is a teacher and was saying that some of the lanyards that they found for theyre badges was really ugly and made out of plastic beads. so i set down on the internet and looked at some of the designs and come up with my own. i hope i did this right and ya'll can see them.

lanyard with some pretty orangey lampwork beads and some others beads i got to match them

i used one each of the beads for the lanyards to make the matching earrings

2  new stuff from me!! in Beads: Completed Projects by alo42d on: May 16, 2008 08:21:54 PM
i know its been awhile since i posted, i just havent been in the mood. but now well i'll let the pics speak for themselves. hope ya'll enjoy and as usual comments  are welcome and wanted.  thanx

this is a set i made for a friend that i work with. the beads are glass and they have a tie dyed look to them. this is a necklace and anklet set.

i bought these to go with a sweater that i have. they are semi-precious blue agate stones:

i had this shell for about 6 months and then inspiration hit me. it has czech glass
beads and swavorskian crystals along with links from another chain that i broke down and refitted for this.

i went to the mountains with my boyfriend at the time and he bought this amethyst rock for me. so after some thinking i come up with this necklace and earring set. the earrings are made with cracked glass and swavorski crystals.

i bought the crystal hearts at different times and got them together and this is what i got.

hope ya'll enjoy looking as much as i enjoy making!!!

4  experimentation is a wonderful thang!!! in Beads: Completed Projects by alo42d on: November 22, 2007 01:59:23 PM
for those of ya'll that like to see my handiwork here is some things that i was trying out. needles to say that all of the pieces turned out perfectly. i hope to hear from everyone.

this bracelet i got the idea from a bead book that i receive in the mail. mine doesn't look exactly like the one in the book but i like how it turned out anyway

i had bought two silver link necklaces for my ren fair but i never got to use them, so i got tired of them laying around. i cut some of the links then re soldered them together and added some lite blue beads and these are what i came up with.

this set i used the same concept as the lite blue just a little differnet in color and link arrangement.

i hope ya'll like what you see, and i cant wait to hear from everyone.

8  Mother of Pearl button earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by alo42d on: October 04, 2007 01:09:31 PM
i made these for a swap. i bought a pack of mother of pearl buttons and seen some of these earrings in a wist and thought i could do it. i used my trusty drill and a 1/8 drill bit. i beaded a cracked glass bead in the middle and put jump rings to hook the buttons together.

these are hot pink in color with a turquoise blue bead in the middle

these are dark purple with the turquoise beads and a crystal bead in the top button

here is a better pic of the purple ones

thanx for looking.
i hope you enjoyed.

ok everybody i have received from bruisedpeach and just like gypsylou i have been really spoiled. so here is all that i got in my tin. as you can see she went with my celtic theme.

this is the outside of the tin

here is some pendants with celtic designs

here is a bracelet with some celtic charms on it

the next couple of pics is of some note cards that has celtic symbols on the outside, but are empty on the inside

here is everything in the tin

here is the outside of my tin

i love everthing that bruisedpeach sent me. and like gypsylou; both of them have spoiled me.
i hope to craft and swap with you both again in the future. it has been exciting to swap with you both.

sorry luxielou next time i WILL abide by the rules. thanx for being understandable. i hope to swap in one of your swaps again.
