I've recently finished dozens of pairs of earrings, incorporating beads made from semi-precious stone, wood, bone, seeds, pearls, glass, Swarovski crystal, sterling silver, copper, and other metals. Below are just a few examples:

Red glass cube and copper/gold elastic bracelet

Easy wear exotic-looking elastic bracelet. Features glass cube beads in a beautiful shade of true red (not orangey like most "red" beads), and copper and gold coloured metal beads.


Green silver foil, silver, and silver-plated bead elastic bracelet

Easy wear elastic bracelet features beautiful green glass beads lined with silver foil, sterling silver balls, silver plated star spacers.


Amber and gold multi-bead toggle clasp bracelet

One of a kind fun and fabulous bracelet - measures 8" but fits smaller (like 7 1/2") due to the bulk of multi-layered beading. Triangular and tear-shaped amber coloured beads flip flop as the wearer moves her hand. Bead colours: amber, gold, bronze.

Treasures from Thailand

I'm in Thailand looking for exotic beads to bring home for new designs. There are many beautiful semi-precious stones - garnets, tiger's eye, turquoise, red coral - not to mention many unusual and beautiful glass beads. I'll update again once I've created some new pieces incorporating these wonderful beads.
