Going a Beading & Cruisin'!!!

Before I leave on vacation Saturday, I wanted to let you see a few of the items I have been working on.  Yes, I am going on a Beading Cruise, March 26th to April 4th!!!  I am very very excited but so busy trying to get my bags packed, beading finished, working two days, and working on cleaning the house before I go.
On the Rocks had this lovely bead that is coral and gold mixed.  It yelled at me until I bought all Donna had.  I made the necklace with a "peacock" amber Swarvoski crystal then used a much smaller "rusty" Swarvoski crystal for the bracelet.  I added a copper pearl between the round crystals.  I wanted to leave the cuff open so stopped at beading just the center then used my scrapbooking ink to shade the ultra suede edges
I have been working on this for a couple of weeks.  I took twisted bugles to cover various sizes of pearls.  I didn't have a pattern for this piece so I just beaded until I was satisfied or too tired to continue...lol  I love the pearlized/frosted drops as they pick up the colors of their surroundings.
Last but NOT least, I made three pair of ear rings this morning.  There is an article in April Bead and Button magazine that inspired these by Kimberly Berlin.  I think they will be a fun accent for a casual summer outfit.
Well, the packing is not getting done and I am already tired!  Have a great week.  I know I will..
