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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I used Preciosa cupchain, 8/0 seed beads, 11/0 seed beads and a freshwater pearl. I am really loving bead embroidery.

I purchased several druzy pendants and made the above pendant.
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.
