New Items Part 3~Natural Stones and Our Beading Blitz

Chris and I occasionally sit down at our kitchen table and spread as many bead containers as we can fit on the table, and do a beading blitz. This particular one happened last week. We were selling our jewelry, beads, ceiling fan pulls, and suncatchers at the Country Crafts and Friends show near Giltner, NE. Some of the gals Chris works with were planning on heading out to see the show, and wanted turquoise in particular. So we whipped out the bead boxes, tools, and crimps and this is what we came up with. This first bracelet has accents of copper and lovely "beach glass" nuggets I got from Carla at beads and botanicals. I really love how the nuggets set up off your wrist and the light shines through them so your arm literally "glows". There are earrings that match it down the post a ways.
Another turquoise bracelet with copper, etched spacers made by Chris, various other stones that were attracted to each other.
This bracelet features matte finish carnelian triangles with foil lined lime green glass beads. I got this strand of bead (the triangles) at the Central Nebraska Bead Show in March, and I really love to just take them out of the box and finger their smooth texture. Is that too much information?!
Here are some fun and lovely earrings from our beading blitz.
This pair of earrings is made with copper links of chain and I wired the spacers Chris made to them for dangles. Gorgeous!
