Prayers for Good Health

No reminders necessary this week of the frightening times around the world. Especially in times like this, we must remember to celebrate every small victory. One of my friends will have her last radiation treatment tomorrow (Monday); I expect to see her tomorrow afternoon, and have made this embellished cabochon as a surprise gift for her.

I have also completed a couple of other projects – these 7-pointed star earrings, and this Kumihimo necklace using large (3x6mm) peanut beads.

Remember to wash your hands and Bead Happy, Judi

Art Deco Earrings

Inspired by a pattern by Tracy Whitfield in the February 2020 issue of Bead & Button, I have been making triangles. I did make a pair of earrings, although I instead of 2-hole daggers, I finished them with some embellished pearls.

Then I made more triangles, embellished them with Czech glass rondelles, and strung them together to make a necklace. Triangles are SO versatile!

I also made a really fun memory wire bracelet, using long metal tubes, metal spacers and Czech glass. I used my tools to give the tubes a really fun enhanced effect.

Finally, I worked on a chain and leather bracelet, with Czech glass dangles.
