Little Green Men

About this design:

My co-worker Megan has been bringing me beads to make things for her. Not my personal taste, but she brought me these alien/monster beads, the green cat's eye beads, and the saucer shaped beads and asked for a necklace/earring set. This is what I came up with ... she LOVES it.


Alien/monster & Saucer Shaped Lampwork beads, Green Cat's Eye beads, Millefluer beads, Seed beads, Silver-plated findings and charms

    Oh yes, I can see the “little green men” Do you play the video game too? I have it on my computer, I’m not very lucky at picking the correct alien ships. But at least I’m not losing money while I try.
