Sea Glass Pendant

Another bead embroidery pendant!!!
My friend Shirley lives in Hawaii, and a while ago she sent me lots of sea glass that she collected on a beach there. So my friend Donna's  birthday is next month, so I thought to use a green sea glass. I have white, brown and green sea glass.
This pendant I kept it simple, one row of cupchain, followed by 4mm Chinese bicones. and #3 blugle beads for the bail.

Bead Embroidery Pendant #3

I used a button for the center of this pendant, cut the shank off and filed it.
I bought the button at Hobby Lobby, they have a nice collection of fancy buttons.
I used 4mm bicone around the button, followed by 4mm crystal pearls.
This pendant is very light.

Princess Kate Bracelet

This is the bracelet I was talking about in my previous post. But it was so difficult to photograph.
You can't see how it shines and it looks like a diamond bracelet, it is very luxurious. I love this bracelet.
The materials are tilas, 11/0 seed beads, #3 bugle beads and cupchain.
This pattern is from the Potomac Bead Company YouTube channel.
UPDATE: I had the link for this bracelet, but is has been removed. I am so sorry!!
I hope you like it as much as I do.

Snake Skin Bracelet

This bracelet was made using SuperDuos and 11/0 seed beads.
This free pattern is from Aunties Beads and you can get it here.
I hope you enjoy making this bracelet as much as I did. I thought to be very easy.
I am sorry for the poor quality of the picture.
I actually gave this bracelet to my friend Shirley for Christmas and I had to take a quick picture before I sent it to her.
I do enjoy working with the SuperDuos.
Right now I am working on a bracelet with Tilas, Cupchain, Bugle beads ans Seed beads.
That will be my next post, I am almost done.
Check back later this week to see how beautiful it is. I am in love with it.

Lapis Necklace

I bought several pendants to make necklaces for Christmas presents. This one I kept for myself, a simple strand of 4mm Lapiz Lazuli beads strung on beading wire.
Something to wear with jeans, even though I only wear jeans on the weekends, and then I am to lazy to wear jewelry. The pendants I bought were Moonstone, Jade, Pink Quartz and Lapiz.

This pendant is another bead embroidery one, I bought several oval shaped cabochon at JJ Beads in Huntington Beach, CA. The colors are gorgeous.

I made this pendant before Christmas, I have been super busy, I was called for jury duty and had to go for 2 days, luckily I was not picked to be a juror, and school started on Monday, so it is crazy.
I found this free pattern on Around the Beading Table website, and you can get the free pattern here.
It was so easy and quick to make it.
I used crystal pearls, superduos, seed beads and druk beads.

Druzy Pendants

Druzys are a passion of mine. I absolutely love them!!
I purchased several druzy pendants and made the above pendant.

And of course I made this one too.
I found matching beads for both pendants, they are gemstone beads.
I get so many compliments when I wear them.
The pendants are heavy, and I wire wrapped each bead. It is time consuming, but I don't mind the work.
I still have a few more pendants, but that will be later.
I bought some in Brazil, some at JJ Beads in Huntington Beach CA and some at the GemFaire.
