Creating sooths my nerves

I actually got to take a class from a pro, Sheilah Cleary!  She taught at our studio a couple of weekends ago and this watch is what I came up with.  It was a fun class and I learned so many hidden secrets from her.
We had a marvelous time and I ended up with this pretty flower necklace.
Well, that got me in "the mood" and I finished my drewsie necklace.  I found the drewsie in a tourist shop in Myrtle Beach this summer.  (It was a refrigerator magnet that I took apart then beaded around.)
What do you think? 
I made a "bale" out of two open triangle designs and added the pearl in the open space.  I then finished it off with a Russian Spiral design. 
Next, because my brain is not working so well I thought I needed a picture of my Grand kids to hang around my neck.  The rope was a trick of the overworked beader.  It took me a couple of hours to even figure out the pattern.  It is red, black and silver which matches the sweet frame.

I made ear rings to match.
I have four other projects finished but was feeling guilty about breaking my promise to get back into the swing again of blogging more often.  I miss you all so much but there are just so many hours in the day and night combined.
I must check on each one of you so this will be a short post, (again).
I pray all is well with you all.
Sharon
ps...thank you for not giving up on me
