Hoop Dreams

The focal bead is a fish with the sweetest face created by Wayne Robbins. The fish is jumping through a hoop. The necklace is embellished Ndebele to match the hoops. Small 2mm crystals and Delicas adorn the necklace and hoops.

Piazza Perline Bracelet turned Pendant

This is a pattern (same name) by Jill Wiseman originally intended to be a bracelet. As I began putting the pieces together, I saw something totally different and decided to make a pendant.

Looks like a disco ball of sorts.

Crazy Quilt Beading

Here is a fun and cheerful bracelet done very slowly in square stitch. I made a template on graph paper first so that I could visualize my pattern. Once I was in the groove of beading, I continued until completion. I even found square buttons to use as closures.

Doesn't it remind you of the crazy quilts?

Beaded Animal Round Robin

This is a bird I worked on for the month of March. Bright seed beads and sequins adorn this creation. It is flying off to one more beader for completion.

Next and last in line is a seahorse project.
