Finished medallion

Here's the finished medallion necklace that I've been working on. The dark beads are a silver lined royal blue. They look real pretty in the flesh, but in the picture they look black to me.

This is some of my Canadian Twist bracelets. I've been experimenting with changing the pattern and these where quicker to make. The Canadian Twist is my own design.

Some of these bracelets have metal toggles, but I find the beaded toggles easier to get on and off, so I'm going to stick with beaded ones.

I've been trying some dimensional beading too and hope to incorporate that into the toggles.

Before I start anything new, I need to finish the chain for the medallion I worked on yesterday and then think about putting chains on these other medallions.

First day of blogging

This is what I've been working on this weekend. My local bead store had a sale the other day so I treated myself to some Swarovski crystals. The store had a sample of a pendant using crystals, so I came home and tried it. Two of these example are using crystals, and the others just use seed beads.

I'm working on another one that I'm putting a strap on now. I don't know if I like it, but will post it if it turns out.
