Where’s the beef – I mean BEADS!

Since the banner on the top of this blog says “Bead Happily Ever After”, I should be posting about beads some of the time – or at least about things that are made with beads, right? Right! 😉

Here are a few things I finished last week . . .


This first pair of earrings feature elegant Vintage Swarovski round faceted beads in a gorgeous shade of forest green aurora borealis called “Turmaline AB”. I think they would be beautiful for bridesmaids in deep green gowns – maybe for a Christmas wedding!

Speaking of weddings, these earrings are a marriage of Czech baroque-shaped glass beads and Swarovski crystals in one of their newest colors, “Air Blue Opal”. The blue has an iridescent quality that coordinates very well with the swirling blues and rose pink hues of the Czech beads.


Finally, because you just KNOW I’m gonna make something purple if I have the chance, here’s a bracelet in a classic style. Tanzanite Swarovski crystals and high quality cat’s eye glass beads are accented with beautiful floral bead caps.


What are you working on lately? Hope you can find a little time to make something soon . . .

Remember! Crafting truly is like taking a vitamin! 😀
