Another bracelet! This is tubular herringbone, like the green one a few days ago, but it alternates bugles and seed beads and I didn't put a spiral on it. The brilliant colors combined with the black makes me think of 1970 black light posters!

This is the latest bracelet: my try at twisted tubular herringbone. I couldn't figure out how to make it spiral at first, hence the straight section at the end; to keep from pulling it apart to fix it I just made the other end straight tubular herringbone, too!

I started this necklace back in 2009 with intention of wearing it at Steamcon I. Got it half done; it's been sitting in a pile until yesterday.

Although I'd started this necklace sometime in early or
mid-summer, I just finished it Saturday, hours before the party I wanted to wear it to. It's clear yellowish-green 11 seed beads, a few gold metallic seed beads, 6mm dark green pearls and 4 mm metallic gold pearls.

I needed something for a white elephant gift exchange, so I quickly beaded up this:

Metallic gold 11s, 4mm pearls, and a few clear green 11s. Now I want to keep it.

Spring Leaf Collar

This collar is a take-off on an old Jewelry Crafts bracelet pattern, "Zig-Zag" by Carole Rodgers (September–October, 2006). I lengthened it, modified it so that it curved and replaced the trefoils along the bottom with dangling leaves. It's one of my three favorite pieces to emerge from my January beading fever: The colors look great on and the collar lies beautifully along the neck.

[ Czech pressed glass leaves, 6mm Czech matte AB bicones, Czech 8° and 11° seed beads, Japanese 11° and 15° seed beads, Fireline™. ]

In a rare burst of creativity (and because I needed something to take a break from doing our taxes with), I made a bracelet:

It's 4mm dark gray pearls surrounded with metallic silver coated seedbeads, and a picot of clear AB seeds down each side.

And I- finally!- felt confidant enough with my weaving thread tails back in that I didn't feel I had to knot them. I hated those knots. I did end up gluing, them, though.

Bead Box
Для её оплетения я использовала мой любимый синий бисер. Но так как я фотографирую на телефон, то её цвет передается не точно :-((((
Она сверкает и переливается
For this box I used my favorite dark blue bead. But because I take pictures on a telephone, its color is passed not exactly
It sparkles and overflows
