Sea Glass Garden

This bracelet is a pattern from theApril/May 2015 Beadwork Magazine, the pattern is by Svetlana Chernitsky.
The pattern uses 15/0, 11/0, O beads, Superduos, 3mm, 4mm crystal bicones(I used Preciosa)and Silky Beads.
It was a little strange working with the Silky beads, because of their shape.
This pattern was very easy to make.

Faux Druzy Earings

I found these at Hobby Lobby, they had a metal feather at the bottom and I didn't like it, I added a Crystal at the bottom(also from Hobby Lobby)  and a ear wire on the top. I had bought two, I went back and got another one and made a pendant.

Pretty Necklaces

I bought these links at JJ Beads store in Huntington Beach, CA. As usual, I bought them some time ago,  and finally I decided that I should do something with them, so now I have four new necklaces.
The clear on on the bottom was a strand of oval Chinese Crystals.
I like how they turned out.

Pepita from Pepita Handmade, she lives in Slovenia,  is graciously hosting this blog hop.
So for this hop we are to create something, anything with butterflies. I have a passion for butterflies.
I would like to thank Pepita for hosting this blog and letting me participate.
My friend Liz E told me about it, so thanks to Liz, too.

I made a bracelet using Swarovski crystals in 8mm and 4mm, curved links and a magnetic clasp.

I also made a pair of earrings, they will be flying away when I wear them.
I grew-up in Brazil and there were so many butterflies, and since then I love anything butterflies, I have tons of butterfly jewelry.
