Here's a beaded ball necklace I made to wear to my class reunion. Someone told me I needed to make some earrings to go with it, so I did.

Here is an angel and snowman charm I made for a Christmas charm swap on one of the yahoo groups I'm on.

I can't believe it's been this long since I've posted anything. I made this rose in a class taught by Denice in our local bead society.

Spring Bead Cave

Here are a couple of items that I did in the OCBPA spring bead cave.
Beaded beads taught by Cicily, she says I did my own thing as usual but I still like them. ;)
The bead embellished flowers were taught by Lisa. Both flowers have the same amount of fabric, one just has smaller gathering stitches made.
2 great projects, enjoyed them both.

I made this dreamsicle earlier this year and never got it posted. I've been pretty bad about posting but want to get caught up. I was just going to post things I've made this year but we'll see what happens.
I haven't beaded much this summer.

Micro Macrame necklace

I'm way behind in my blogging. I made this macrame necklace in February. It is the first necklace I have made in macrame. I have made several bracelets. It's kind of hard to see in this pic, but you get the idea

Sandstone necklace

I picked up this sandstone piece at a bead store when I was in Florida a couple years ago and finally got around to beading around it. The picture seems a bit blurry but hopefully it will show it ok when it gets posted. I tried to scan it to see if it would come out clearer and it doesn't. I made a spiral rope chain to hang it from. I have done many spiral ropes and always enjoy them. A lot of people ask me if it is heavy and no it is really not.

dichoric cab

It sure has been a long time since I posted anything. I don't have a lot of computer time plus I had a cyst removed that had grown around a tendon on the top of my right hand, and yes I am right handed. So I really wasn't spending a lot of time online then. I did still manage to get quite a few projects done to share with you. This cab I bought from a lady who sometimes comes to the beading group that I belong to in the Cranberry area. I made this in January.

I had not made one of these ornaments in a few years and it was fun to make another one. I put the beaded mandela I made a couple weekends ago in the middle of it.

Beading Bag

Hi, we woke up to 4 or more inches of snow this morning. At least it has warmed up some. It's in the low 20's today. Today I thought I'd share a photo of a bag that was a gift to me in a swap. I've inserted my pics in it now and it will be my new traveling bead bag. Thanks again Debbie for a great swap.

This is a cabachon that a friend made and gifted me with. I used a Jamie Eakin design around the cab. My first completed project of 2009.
