Bead Hoarders Blog Hop

The Bead Hoarders Blog Hop Is By Lori Anderson. Thank you so much for hosting this blog hop. The blog hop can be seen at:
I just came back from San Francisco and didn't have much time to work on this hop.
What I did is I just finished some pieces that were started a long time ago and just waiting to be completed.
My first piece is a pearl cuff done in right angle weave and I used Swarovski crystals in hana ami motif. 

This is a necklace with seed beads and glass beads. 

I bought these beads about five years ago and they were just sitting there because I didn't know what to make out of them. 
So I made this necklace. 
Thank you again to Lori Anderson for hosting this blog hop. Please make sure that you visit her blog and see what the other participants created at

I absolutely love everything black and white.
My partner from the Bead Soup(my first Blog Hop) Liz E., knows how much I love black and white, so she e-mailed me the link for this challenge(thank you Liz).
My first bracelet is using tila and superduo beads. This a web inspiration.

This second bracelet is using white pearls, fire polished beads, seed beads and machine cut crystals. I love this pattern.
And finally the earrings: I used black and white superduos, seed beads and machine cut crystals.
