1 Terrific Tuesday 5/8/12

Oh my, I had one of the most productive days yesterday that I have had in a LONG time.  I was able to do the finish work on several pieces and I actually got time to take PHOTOS too!  Again, PRODUCTIVE DAY!!  I am so very proud of some of these creations. 

One of the new techniques I have learned is how to do these 'little' Chaton's.  I am having so much fun with them.  They are basically the same as some of the LARGE centerpieces that I do, but on a MINI scale.  The first couple of rows are done with 11o Delica's - meaning there are 11 beads per inch and the remaining rows are done with 14o Beads - meaning there are 14 beads per inch.  Each earrings has been taking me about 1 1/2 hours - so about  hours each....... once I get the design done.  Several of them I have to 're-do' several times - there is a BIT of a learning curve (pardon the pun) to these little earrings!

So, tell me - honestly - what you think!  I really want to know.  Here is the first one's I am listing ( I have several pairs ready to go).

Pink and Silver Plated Beadwoven Swarovski Crystal Earrings


Then there is this creation.... do you remember way back about a month ago I told you about the wonderful beads I received from Georgia Mountain Arts.....

What I may not have told you is that the Fused Glass Pendant over on the right was handmade by Ms. Peggy.  I fell in love with it the moment I saw it.  The only down side, what to create around it.  I felt like I just had to add a 'striking' color to the mix.  So, I added copper seed beads.... here is what it turned out like....

So, once again I would like to thank Ms. Peggy from Georgia Mountain Arts for her great swap mix! 


So, with all that being said I will close for now and go back to my beading....I have even more to show you tomorrow!

All degrees of joy reside in the heart.
