Default Beaded jewelry

Here's some stuff I made about 5 years ago. I was browsing through Jo-Ann Fabrics one day and saw all these great beads and things. I guess I just can't resist shiny, colorful beads. And I don't even wear jewelry!

Don't wrestle with a pig. The pig enjoys it and you get muddy.

Really pretty, NYF. I especially like the first one.

Really nice! and good timing too - I was going to do up something for Mom for Christmas. I needed the reminder.
Aren't beads addicting? I have so many that I bought just because I liked them, but didn't have a plan for them.

M Fox-
I have to stop myself from going in the bead aisle! I love all those fabulous colors and shapes. I never have a plan either. I just see all those great combinations and think, hmm, I wonder what I could make with that? Sometimes I cut photos out of catalogs when I see interesting beaded items that I think I could make. I'm surprised at the prices that some things sell for. Does anyone else have any pictures of their creations?

Umm...yeah. I have pictures. I love beads. I have a studio stuffed with them, I've been collecting for years. I'm a danger to myself.

How bad is it? My earring website:

Very pretty, Teal.

Those beads and crystals are hard to resist! I have several to make up as clip earrings. I have clip bases, but have to decide how to fabricate the bead design and how to attach - with glue, I guess.

Wow! Nice work! I got sucked into the Trollbeads display when I went in to the local jeweler to get a watch fixed. Neat stuff. Might have to splurge on a bracelet.
