Beads galore!

Still full of flu! Got a very heavy head this morning, not helped my the fact that poor Chris had another 3am start. At least I was lucky enough to go back to bed and dose for a while!

Still, another day curled up with the cat, Olbas Oil and some beads! Can't complain!

Here is another pic of the earrings I made earlier this week, the lighting wasn't great on the original photographs. LOVE these, will definitely be make some more like this.

Tuesday I made a very simple necklace. It came in a kit but I added a few different gemstone chips and beads to give me enough "spares" to make a bracelet to match. I didn't think the length of this was great for me, I do like a longer necklace, but it was lovely to make, I'll certainly make more of these too.

Here are a couple of the Kumihimo braids I have made. The silver one is made with satin cord and the larger turquoise is leather. I am still trying to figure out the measurements for these to avoid wasting to much stringing materials.

I have finished re-beading my bracelet.....

 ....and here is my next little project. I am sort of making it up as I go along 
so I am prepared for mistakes!

Can you spot a colour theme going on here? LOL 
I obviously need to buy MORE beads in different colours.

Bye for now.

Oh my! You have certainly been busy. Love them! Your making up as you go along one looks really good. If I wore ear-rings I would be wanting to buy those ones!!
