Beaded Items

I finished making these 2 sets for Elise. She wanted one in sapphire blue for her daughter and ruby red for herself. I decided to make something different for her as she is going to show these to her boss who owns a gift shop. She's interested in seeing some of my beaded jewelry after she told her boss about them. Here they are:



Both sets are made with size 12 Japanese AB glass seed beads, 6mm and 3 mm round glass beads with a bead for closure.

Here are some of my beaded ornaments which I have been making for the past few years (ever since I got married).....I try to make at least 3 new ones every Christmas. I used to hang these suspended from the ceiling when we still haven't bought a Christmas tree yet. These are all heavy!

The three latest ones......The first and second one are from Laura Jansen's book The Beadecked Ornament while the other two I got the inspiration while surfing. :-)))))
