Bead Along Started!

Another bead along has started! Here are the current pics I have received:

Ann Hushagen - Mississauga, ON
I used a luster mix of 4 mm firepolish, Metallic Brown Iris, and Bronzelined Black Diamond (my favorite colour!)


Here are the projects I have completed so far from A Beaded Romance. As you can see, my take on a couple of them is a little different.

Picot Petals Pendant: Size 15 Silver-lined Crystal and Silver-lined Light Sapphire
                    4mm bicone Sapphire
                     Dangle is odds and ends I had hanging around

Fringed Bracelet: 3mm Pearls, Night Blue; 3mm Crystal Bicones, Light Sapphire; Size 11 Silver-lined Dark Cobalt and Frosted Silver-lined Light Sapphire; Size 15 Silver-lined Blue and Silver-lined Light Sapphire. For the clasp: Some blackish pearls I had lying around.

Wedding Show

Today I am setting up at a bridal show in a gown shop right next to our store. I normally don't like to do Shows because tey take so long to prepare for but we get a lot of business from the gown shop so I thought it might get more brides through our doors looking for jewelry. I set up with a small sampling of what a bride might be interested in. I brought a couple of things to work on so I'm hoping that the day will pass quickly.
