Fun Colors this Spring in Beading

Thanks to several orders, I've been busy beading and shipping! Keep them orders coming, it helps pay the ever increasing diesil costs for our RVing, plus buys more beads! Shh, don't tell my husband that part!! :)

Last month I did the "Hummingbird Gorgette Bracelet" and that inspired me to make another version in Purple, Teal and Greens.  Which got me using similar colors from both bracelets to make the "Stain Glass Window Bracelet", shown here in the middle.  These are all made with size 8 seed beads and can be made with all different combinations of color.  Approximately 1 1/4 inches wide.

In the beading class I've enjoyed for the last 3 months, one of our Beginner beaders came up with a pattern using the Right Angle Weave for Swarovski 4 mm crystals.  I did mine in Aqua crystals with 4 mm Swarovski pearls down the middle to punch it up!

I am currently waiting for more shipments of crystals and beads, some as far away as Alaska!

Thanks for reading and let me know if there is something special I can make up for you or a gift for a friend!
