Art Beads dot Com recently asked if would participate in program called blogging for beads. I readily agreed with visions of their artbeads adding just the right finishing touch to these unfinished pieces. I dressed up this netted bracelet with a 16mm square button crystal in Meridian Blue. If you would like to dress up a netted bracelet of your own the pattern can be found here.

8mm Silver crystals roundelles were the perfect touch to capture the Amazonite faceted stone in this crocheted bracelet.

Oh how I love these Ruby Briolettes with 4mm ruby bicone crystals and sterling silver earring wires.

combined with 4mm Amethyst bicone crystals create these 2 pairs of Medici Drop Earrings from Marcia DeCoster's Bead Opulence book. Vintaj earring wires complete the design below.

WOW! I love those finished pieces, I can't get over how pretty they are. Turned out so lovely. I need a patience pill before I can even THINK about using all those teensy beads, but I do love the outcomes.
