New necklace

This necklace was woven/netted with sz. 11 Toho beads, and finished with a flower shaped sterling silver box clasp. Based on a pattern by Sandra D. Halpenny.

"Flapper" earrings

These flapper inspired earrings consist of a checkerboard Swarovski flatback crystal captured in 22k white gold hex-cut delica beads & fringed with 8 helix
Swarovski crystals. Finished with sterling silver earwire. Measures 2-1/4" from top of earwire to bottom of fringe & 3/4" across at widest point. Available for purchase on my website now.

Winter update

It's been a long hard winter...and it's hardly even begun yet. I'm beginning to think my car is either cursed or possesed, but more likely it was beat up by its previous owner and now I'm paying the price. This is the 2nd time in a month my car is in the shop for clutch/gearwork...not to mention having to replace the battery. And I'm saving for a wedding.
Needless to say its been a financially tight time for me. So since I can't be dining out frequently and attending concerts as much as I'd like, I'll be home. But that means more beading time!
Stay tuned for new items.
