Two Drop Peyote Bracelets

I made these a million years ago. The pattern is in Step by Step Beads, but I can't remember which issue. They are fun and easy to make.

Tabac Pendant

I love the Tabac Swarovski's! Here are two that I bezeled around (I always want to say "embezzled"--that word gets stuck in my and connected. I wear it as a pendant on a neckwire. It doesn't photograph nearly as pretty as it actually is. I have two 23mm Tabac Swarovski triangles that I got from Cindy Beadlady (check my links). She's the only one that I've seen to have the Tabac triangles. I'm going to "embezzle" them, too, once I get the chance! :)

Herringbone Bracelet with Crystal Inserts

This is a herringbone bracelet with Czech crystal inserts. It took a really long time to do, and I had to rip out a lot. Thanks, Puca and Sylvie, for your help with this! :)

Woolly Worms

This is a pattern that my friend, Shirley, taught to our local beading group. I don't usually make more than one of something, so you can tell that I like this pattern! :) It's easy and it goes with everything.

Why I Haven't Been Beading...

My boy graduated! Yay!!! He was named a National Merit Scholar and, because of this, was awarded the Presidential Scholarship to the University of Alabama! It's a full academic scholarship, and he will leave in the fall. So, ROLL TIDE!

Not to be outdone, my daughter (who is 11) has decided that she is going to be the first woman president (and also the youngest because she plans on doing this when she is 35)! :)
