    New challenges–wonderful job! I find making bead links therapeutic and totally enjoy the process. I can sit for hours making them. They give such nice movement to pieces. The crystals will look beautiful as they catch the light when they move about. I enjoy seeing all the new things everyone is trying.

    Great job! It looks like you have been creating the head links for years. I love the color combination and head choices.

    New things to try are so fun. The links are perfect. Different kind of work for you and yet it still reflects your love of nature and color. The feathers add the unique interest. The colors just shine.

    I think that putting bead links together makes for great pieces of jewelry…I agree with C.C. And I love when necklaces are best worn off center…very cool. Your necklace just proves that red and green aren’t just for Christmas!

    Thank you all very much. I found this really fun – but I don’t really know what I’m doing. I bought a new toy – I mean tool – that made it much easier for me. A 1 step looper.
