Key Lime Collar & Earrings


It's been a long gap, but lately I've been going through beading books and magazines & I think it's fair to say that the bug is biting. I had something else in mind for these lime daggers, but they're so stunning that I decided a simple netted design would show them off best. The earrings are peyote tubes with dangles.
Oh! And my BIG NEWS is the one of my bracelet designs has been bought by Bead & Button. Look for the embellished diamond stitch project in the February issue. (And if you make it - be prepared to log some hours!)

Wow! Congratulations! I'll definitely be watching for it in the magazine!

Thanks, LB & Christina. And even more - thanks for not giving this site (and me) up for dead! Sure has been a while.

I love the daggers!

BB - Just the advance copy & my bracelet back. So weird to see my own bracelet in print! But you know, I think some of the "show us what you made" section is the best stuff there. What amazing work out there!

And Rachel - I went broke on the daggers. That GREEN. Could not help myself!
