I received this beautiful necklace
from my Secret Pal Anne Fresica. It reminds me of a sea urchin.
I love it and wear it all the time. It's like nothing I would make
for myself, that's what I love about it.
I made this bag for my Secret
Pal, it's an original design of a blue poppy, done in 14 seed beads and
14 hexes. It is the first
design that I ever took
down into the fringe. It was great fun to do. I was inspired
by Marylyn Leston's Morning Glorious Bag. The bag has a poppy
both sides and is double fringed. The strap is Kathy Rice's diamond
for the diamond chain
This is my first attempt at
a votive candle holder. I made it for the Surprise Swap. I started
at the bottom with three drop peyote lace, and increased and incorporated
faceted crystals, then decreased back to three drop peyote lace. It was
hard to resist lighting it, to see what it will look like with candle light
shinning through it!!
My first Christmas Ornament
done for Lynne's Christmas Swap. It is the design from Bead and Button,
done with twisted gold bugles, purple and gold tri-cut nines and purple
Austrian crystals. It was scanned with my scanner lying on it's side,
and the scanner worked great,
This amulet bag is for my Secret
Pal in the amulet section of Lynne's Christmas Swap.
The bag is done in three drop
peyote lace using size nine tri-cuts. The Poinsettia was done using Maria
Oldring's Peyote Leaves found under beading patterns here.
The strap is Kathy Rice's Dimond
chain,a quick, beatuiful bag strap that is both delicate and strong.
for Kathy's chain.
love to hear from you!!!
