This is Deborah Roberti's Stacker pattern using only tilas.  The last one that I did was another variation...I think this one works better if your Super Duo is not the same color as your 11/0 bead that's closest to it.  I was especially pleased with the clasp because it kinda looked like the tilas!   :)  Also, I found out the hard way that Super Duos work WAY better than twins in this pattern.

Super Duo Bracelet

I made this bracelet to stack with another that I will post next...but I liked it so much that it's fine by itself...I used gold super duos with 2mm crystal rounds between each.  This turned out to be a very comfortable bracelet!

Alexandra Bracelet

This bracelet was really cool to make.  It wasn't overly was fun...and I learned new things.  The pattern is by Deborah Roberti... was one of the best written patterns that I have ever come across.  She had excellent pictures and, to back that up, excellent written directions.  You couldn't go wrong!   :)

Another Spiral Tube Necklace

Okay, so here's another necklace with the spiral tubes.  I found these little black beads at a bead show...

Pearl Spiral Tube Necklace

I made this using the same idea as the bangles.  Instead of using stretchy material, I used Softflex and a clasp that has a link on one side where you can insert the hook at different places for different lengths...don't know if you call that an adjustable clasp or an extender clasp.

Montee Tennis Bracelet

I got my inspiration for this from a Firemountain Gems email.  I did mine a little differently and with some different components, but it's very easy to do and very easy to see how to do it from the picture!

Terri's Bangles

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these.  My friend, Terri, told me how to do can basically look at them at figure them out...if you're not comfortable with them just rolling over your wrist, you can put them all on a slide lock clasp or wear them individually with clasps.  Have to make me some silver ones next!

Thank you, Terri!

Pearl and Crystal Necklace

Have you ever made a piece of jewelry that you don't know why you made it and you're glad you're finished with it?  This looks like a bridal piece.  I'm already married and not planning on getting married again anytime soon.  I guess I can give it as a present or even save it for my daughter for when she gets married.  This is a simple pattern, but it was a stinker to make because of the way the pattern was written.  The pattern was perfect until you got to the "V" and then it said basically "reverse what you did for the first side".  I had to think too  I can't remember which magazine the pattern was in...It turned out beautifully, but I would probably have gotten more use out of it had I maybe made it with black pearls and copper crystals?  Not going to make another one, though.
