Embellished Netted Bracelet


Finished a bracelet!  Got the pattern from Japanese Beadwork with Sonoko 60...Night Dew...I did not embellish both sides.  This is a nice book, and the bracelet feels nice and slinky on...she had a cool way to embellish it!

Anyhow, give it a try!

Peyote Bracelet with Hidden Clasp

I made this peyote bracelet using liquid silver, which is a little smaller than #1 size bugles...added a picot edge and I thought it looked a little plain, so I added all the pearl fringe around the slide-lock clasp.  It's not a difficult bracelet to make, but I got tired of doing all the I get to the end of a project, I WANT TO BE DONE WITH IT!!!   :)  And now I've started a netted bracelet embellished with slowly as I bead, my next post will probably be next year, so don't give up on me!

Princess Kate Bracelet

This bracelet was in either Beadwork or Bead and Button...can't remember.  It was a stinker to do.  I tried to follow the pattern and the cup chain would NOT line up with the I reworked it and reworked it and finally ended up with this.

Latest New Pieces

I have not given up on beading...things have just been hopping around here!  :) My son has graduated from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) and my daughter has successfully completed the 9th grade and is now a sophomore.  I've finished several pieces and even taken pictures...just lazy when it actually comes to posting...sorry!  So here they go!

The first is a gold Russian spiral:

The second one is a silver fringe necklace with a chevron base.  The pattern is by Glenda Payseno:

The third is a pattern that I came up with...nothing fancy and very easy:

And, last but not least, is another pattern that I came up with by playing tilas done in ladder stitch with a braided rope edge...this one was a stinker when you go to finish up the last row of the edging.

Hope y'all like can leave a comment if you like, but it's much easier if you just e-mail me at
