So I finally got around to making a bunch of jewelry with the beads my aunt gave me. (She decided she wanted to take up jewelry making, went out and spent too much money on beads, then decided it wasn't for her. I've been collecting and trading beads quite a bit, but this is the first time I'm made a bunch of things. Let me know what you think.

I love them all! I want them all! My favorites though are the Black/Red/Heart bracelet, the Tear-drop earrings with the blue beads, and the long black single strand earrings.

I love them! You did a great job they are all very different. My fav's are the chandelier earrings, the amber butterfly necklace, and the green & red foil beaded memory wire bracelet. I would definitely check out your Etsy if ya get that up and running soon.

Everything goes better with beads.

Love your designs. I would be careful about using barrel clasps on bracelets, though. They are notoriously hard to fasten if you don't have a handy helper.

But your colors and designs are great!

I really like the necklace with bright yellow beads and the square green bead with the flower on it.

hi,  favs - really, I could not choose - all are gorgeous

One of the bracelets looks like it has a magnetic clasp.  Do you have any probs with it?  Some of the ones I've used, come apart sometimes.  I think the fit has something to do with it.  If it's not loose enough, the magnet seems to come apart more.  Mine work fine most of hte time, but going to the bathroom will sometimes cause a prob.

One of my beader friends uses magnets, almost exclusively.  She uses a heavy duty type.  Most of my customers do not want magnetics.

The kidney wire earrings with black ... do the beads go over the top arc.
