Don't these colors make a beautiful combination?  Oh, LOVE these.  I started adding a little more embellishment with 15's and an 11 around the edges.  I like the finished look of it all.  Plus on this version, I used hex 11's.  The hex beads don't always lay the way I want them to, but on this pair, they did.  Unfortunately, I had to rip out one pair because I didn't like the look!  

                     And purple... oh, love the different shades on this pair...so purteeeee!

And this combo... well... you can tell, I like THEM ALL!  How many earrings can one person wear at a time? Hmmmmmm,  well, I can change them hourly, how's that?  ☺☺ Or, maybe some people will receive little pkgs in the mail... 

Now, let's review...

Oh, yes and I must squeeze in this darlin pic of my grandsons as a quick diversion.  They are just such a joy to me and grandpa!  :)  They are full of life and light and all things sweet and wonderful.  And grandpa Noah and I love them sooooo much.  Okay, now back to beading... :)

A lovely set for a special friend of mine's birthday.  The Mother of Pearl is really one of my favorites and it really worked with these copper colored fire polish, plus I had this darling little concave shaped stone heart to add on.  Me n' hearts ♥♠♥
 Here's the bracelet to match - started with a pattern learned at Bead Street awhile ago, and then embellished with 15's, 11's and 3 mm FP.  Plus the button is ta copper Tree of Life.  Love this bracelet.  It almost didn't make it in the birthday box!  :)




Weightless Colorful Earrings!


A new earring adapted from a Deborah Roberti design.  These are so light -- no earlobe drag!   Plus, the color combinations are endless.  I used AB fire polish and swarovski crystals, with an 8, 11's and 15's.  My daughter-in-law, Lindsey, was so excited at the weightlessness of these after trying them, that she "forced" me to sell them to her.  :)  It normally takes me awhile to let go of my latest creation... (yes, I'm nutty!) and I had just finished making these!  I hope you think of me every time you wear these, Lindsey! xo

AB orange tones FP with clear AB crystals

Purples/blues/greens.  These pics give a nice view of how the colors can change in different lighting.  And, this purple multi tone hue FP is so versatile.  My best customer Kriss bought these to match the necklace she had her eye on the minute she saw it -- Russian Lace from a previous post back in May.  The green and purple look great together, and I didn't even make them to go together.  Guess I like that color combo... imagine...
This is a slightly adjusted version - I used 4 mm rounds instead of 4mm crystals and also a 4mm round in the center instead of an 8, plus added some 15's around the center round to give a little depth.

My beautiful daughters-in-law and their adorable boys (major hunks as their shirts indicate!), our grandsons.  We had a family visit last week and it was so wonderful to all be together.
