Bracelet 24 mm pink, green
etched purple and amber lampwork beads
Wire Patina Queen
Jim Holtz clasp

Sorry for being away so long had many doctors appointments. Now the waiting game begins. I am hopefully sure everything will be OK. Yesterday when I got home I made this cute bracelet and lots of beads. Will show those later. I need to start putting things up on etsy. I think is time to put all the Christmas beads up. Going to sit at the torch with black and white and clear glass and see how many beads I can make using just those colors. I find those colors great for the holidays too.
Have a great beading day.

I made these pendants to match the pretty ribbon. I think they look great together. I was trying to make reasonable priced pendants for a show. I didn't cut the ribbon yet I would like to get 2 pendants with one ribbon. Going to our local bead store to see what clasps would work with ribbon. If anyone in blog land know of good clasps for cord and ribbon I would love to hear from you.
The bracelet was made with silk cord and chain and a lot of wire wrapped beads in pinks and purples. There are some hearts from Chinook Jewelry. I love how this bracelet looks and feels on your wrist.

I love this necklace. Simple cord knotted with silver spacers and lampwork beads the focal is worn on the side for nice look. These beads were in my etsy shop for a while. I don't think people know what to do with my big splash disk. So I made a few necklaces. The next necklace was made with waxed linen cord wood beads seed beads my splash disk bead and other lampwork beads. The clasp I made with half round 18 ga sterling silver wire coiled as a toggle.

This cute bracelet has one of my lampwork flower bead with gun metal beads and small jasper beads. Sounds like a heavy bracelet but its very light.

This cute pair of beads are etched with shiny dots. I put elmer"s glue for the dots after they came out of the kiln then etched and washed off the dots so the shiny part shows up. I made a few sets that will be on etsy later. Maybe try a scroll next time.

Renate from Put a little magic in your life was talking about Karma what a better way of showing  good Karma than a Pay-It-forward game. I am going to pick 5  people that want to play along. The gift can be whatever you want does not have to be handmade. If you play you will be asked to send to 5 people. I love getting mail but I will get more enjoyment giving to 5 blog buddies. So leave a comment if you would like to play. Good Karma coming your way!
