Here is a picture of a necklace I just finished. I had several pieces of Lapis Lazuli and I had some beautiful dark Royal blue and white glass I had gotten a while back. In the close up picture you can see the beautiful dark blue glass beads I used close to the clasp.When I see Lapis Lazuli I think of Egypt and the beautiful collars they made and wore.
I love making necklaces and sometimes when I'm watching a movie I get out a few small boxes of beads and make necklaces. It is a way of relaxing after a long day of working on a quilt. I find making these helps me wind down and they are good to have on hand for gift giving for birthdays and holidays.
This is a brooch was made for a friend. Red and gold are her favorite colors. I made one for my sister, daughter-in-law, and one for a friend's mother. I made the face myself.
This is a photo of a necklace I just finished for my granddaughter for her birthday. My sister is going to make her some earrings to match the necklace. It is a joint venture because I know how to make necklaces and my sister knows how to make earrings so it works out great. I sent my sister the beads that will match the necklace .
