Finally here are two pieces of jewelry!

I can not believe that I have gone for a full week without picking up a bead! This is very very unusual for me. I try to bead at least a couple of hours to keep learning more techniques and weaves. The first two pictures are a "beaded bead". I have taken numerous graduated sizes and textures of beads, wove them together to make a solid bead. I really liked making this one. It is made with blood red, silver, and black beads. The center bead slides on and off of the herringbone chain. I have added Swarvoski crystals to link the herringbone together.


This bracelet is such a pleasure for me to make. It is called "Flat Cellini" and the pattern came from a local shop (On the Rocks). On the Rocks is one of my favorite shopping spots! I have made this Flat Cellini in numerous. (I like the teal & silver the best, so far.) I made a round loop on the end from a size 15 bead. This is one of the most comfortable bracelets I have ever made besides being stunning to wear. If you have a favorite color range, I can make a custom order for you...hint, hint.
I am going to post some of the "Journals of Love" that Cora mentioned at Digital Two for Tuesdays. I have been making them every since Shirley posted about this project. So far I have made 32 "Journals of Love"....Please check out my next post for all the information.
Do you like the jewelry? I MUST get back to beading again on a routine basis.
Thanks for stopping by,
Sharon

What a wonderful idea!!

Your journals turned out so nice,
and I'm going over to check out the others, and the challenge.
(I do have my hands full right now, but maybe be able to do it later.

Sharon,
Your journals are wonderful and so is your heart. This project reveal that gem.
I love your bead work necklace with the blood red beads. All of them are beautiful but that is just stunning to me.

God bless your heart. Love.
Dita.
