another amulet bag and soap with rose

I made this amulet bag necklace for a friend. It's a surprise so I won't be saying who it is for as I've already sent it Tuesday. I hope she likes it as I know she likes bright and happy colors. I used Monaco royal blue thread with red size 8 seed beads in different shades. For the necklace part, I used glass beads and cloisonne butterfly to match. It's prettier in person. I had second thoughts about giving this away but it's for a friend. lol!

I tested Kathy's soap with rose and it was fun and so very pretty! I'm planning to make several to give as gifts for my sisters also for C'ville's Christmas wish list. Just have to find some oval-shaped soap small enough for this as my sample is a bit big for the cover. lol!

more gifties

I made these for Christmas gifts. The blue one is for a teenager who loved it when she saw me wearing one and the other one is for a special lady who is a dear friend to me. What I love about making these amulets is that no 2 are exactly alike. Each one comes out differently. I love making these and planning to make more as gifts.

The gray one is crocheted with Raylon gray with hematine size 8 seed beads. The purple one on the other hand is crocheted with Monaco thread with size 8 clear rainbow seed beads. Both necklace parts have glass beads accents. :-))))

I sent this out yesterday to Juli for the fall purse swap. I used 2 strands of Monaco rust and cream. I lined the handles with organza ribbon and also the bag with silk. I hope she likes it as I only winged it.

Lavender amulet bag necklace

I made this as a Christmas gift for a friend. She loves purple. This is done using Anchor lavender size 10 thread with size 11 seed beads in shades from purple to lavender. I got 3 more to make. A couple are orders and another one is a gift for a special teenager. :-)

Plum magic comb

I made this as a belated gift for my SIL who wanted one when she saw me wearing one. This one is the best as it is the prettiest one I've made so far. I used some plum-colored tiger's eye beads which I found at the mall, opal and amethyst gemchips, some faceted clear glass beads in 2 sizes and last but not the least some pearls used as spacer beads. What do you think of this one? ;-)

Hair Accessories

My SIL's friend wanted me to make a sample of these. I think these will be popular soon as an actress was wearing one of these in one of her scenes. The brown one is a sample and the pink one is my version. It took me about 2 1/2 hours to make one as the stringing and weaving of the beads took most of my time. lol!

These are great for parties when you are too lazy to fix your hair as the beads sparkle. :-)))))
