More Beads

I've been working on more bead projects.

This is a bracelet and earring set that I made for my daughter. The beads are actually Rhyolite (semi-precious stone) that she sent to me a year or so ago. They are a beautiful green and tan color. The picture doesn't do them justice, but I never claimed to be a photographer. The seed beads and findings are a bright copper. I haven't mailed them yet, if she reads this post I suppose she will probably let me know and I will have to get them in the mail soon.

This leaf is a pattern from the Bead & Button website, they were having a half price sale on patterns last month and I purchased several. I plan to make this into a pin, haven't added the pin back yet, I think it will look great on a sweater.

This next picture is of a beaded bead, the Bead Dreamz Group is having a challenge and exchange in Jan & Feb for Beaded Beads. I have collected several patterns and am doing some practice beads. This one is netting over a 25mm wooden bead.
This is the top

This is the side

I have tried out a couple other patterns but haven't taken any pictures yet. Right now I'm working on both a dodecahedron and a tetrahedron in delica beads. If you are not sure what I'm talking about I'll post pictures later, so stop by again.


  1. I'm not too into beaded beads, but I really like the netting over this bead. Very nice.

  2. I just surfed over from Bravenet Community Blog.

    Your beading is beautiful. I admire the time, patience and heart that must go in to your creations. Lovely, just lovely.

    Wishing you a warm & sunny week!
