I Sometimes Make Things

I've been making a lot of jewelry lately; here are some of the most recent things.






1. This bracelet: I really like the black in this one, how it stands out against the blue and creates such a definite border for the different elements.

A closer view of those elements:

Here are a couple views of me wearing* it:


2. A smaller bracelet, that's a bit less visually busy:


There are two things that I like about this one: 1) its texture, with all those bugle beads (the long cylindrical ones) lined up like ribs, and 2) all the different greens I used in it. This one, maybe more than anything else I've made, I just do not get tired of looking at.


3. This necklace I made as a showcase for some nifty glass beads I found (mumble) years ago:
4. Another bracelet, which came out a bit messy, that I made trying to come up with a way to use some of the extra agate beads I didn't use making this or this: ... and 5. A big old cuff bracelet I made to match this necklace:

*Not really wearing it, since I made it to fit a smaller wrist than mine, which my sister says is larger than most women's by about an inch. I have draped the bracelet over my wrist to model it, applying pressure strategically to keep it wrapped around, rather than just lying on, this overlarge extremity.

Very nice work! Maybe one of these days I'll get back around to making jewelry.

Thanks!

What kind of jewelry do you make? Are you a beader, too?
