This and That

About this design:

This is a bracelet that I started some time ago. I found it in a box. All it needed was a few loose ends worked in. How lazy am I? I didn't even finish that little bit. But wait, there's a little more in the next image.


Crystal beads and a bunch of those clear 6/0 spacer beads they put on strands of beads to separate them. I always think there has to be a use for them. Also crystal faceted bead for the clasp, and beading thread.

    I also made these earrings today. They should have taken 30 minutes but took all day because I kept messing up, Plus this .005 dark Fireline is like beading with cobwebs. Never again! Plus Mr Romeo has to be on top of mom at all times. Here’s a picture of him with mom not exactly looking my best. When I used the flash to take a picture of the bracelet he totally panicked. He’s coming along, but he’s a very nervous guy. I’m also going to upload a picture of a fantastic bead. I literally spent $54 on a bag of miscellaneous stuff just to get this bead. Any ideas on what to do with it?

    I had a similar type of bead, although not as beautiful as your red bead, and I used it in a really simple design so as not to distract attention from the bead.

    You may have messed up while making the earrings but they sure turned out to be perfect. They are really gorgeous.
    Romeo is looking good. I remember when you first rescued him.

    That is a pretty bead Althea. I think you are right. Whatever I do with this bead should not be so much that it detracts from it. I’ll think about it for a while.

    This bracelet is exquisite!! Romeo must be a great companion. The red bead could look good in a lariat type necklace…with a lot of chain, and some beads.

    Unique bracelet, great ear rings, fabulous red bead and fur baby Romeo…. What a terrific combination of this-es and that-es. :D

    I love the earrings very statement/elegant. Nice bold cuff bracelet, too. I like to keep the strand spacers, too, but I’ve never done anything as fancy with them.
