Another Creative Outlet for Me!

I'd like to share with you one of my newer "vices" that I've been involved with lately... You know that beading craze? Well, it hit me, too!!! LOL! Here are a few projects that I've made in the past couple of months...

This first jewelry set is made from blue lace agate and Austrian blue crystals, with silver spacer beads. The photo doesn't do it (or the others) justice at all.

The next set is snowflake obsidian, black onyx, and these CUTE little turtle beads! I LOVE turtles... The turtle was my personal mascot, bestowed on me by a teammate, when I was swimming with my high school swim team (slow and steady wins the race, I guess! LOL!)

I love the speckles in the snowflake obsidian! What a pretty stone!!!

This last set is much more simple, but is a great "everyday" kind of set... It is made with sodalite and silver beads. Since blue is my favorite color, and the sodalite goes so well with denim, I "had" to make this set for myeslf! And, of course, the cross has tons of meaning for me. I like to wear a cross everyday. Guess I'd better make more jewelry with crosses, so I have one to wear with every outfit, eh?!? LOL!

Thanks for looking!

Hi Denise!

Thanks so much! I usually get my beads (including the adorable turtles!) at the Gem Faire that comes here every quarter! They have some great deals on all gem/jewelry items! Otherwise, I will get the beads at my local craft stores OR

BTW, I have to tell you (since you liked the turtle so much) that his head moves! How cool is THAT?!? I couldn't resist the little guy!
