I promised Julez a week ago or so that I would post some pictures of my beadwork. 

This lovely piece survived the fire, however, the thread is degrading in the strap so it will have to be replaced before sold.  Malachite donut and 4 mm beads shown against black and white background.

Next is lovely piece which also survived the fire. It is actually a strung piece instead of beadwoven and also needs to be fixed. Seems it got knocked around a bit and the wire broke free of the crimp bead.  The teardrop center is, I believe, jasper and the other beads are mixture of jasper, jade, and maybe some dyed turquoise. I can’t remember.

I just finished this piece today. The center donut is rose quartz and unfortunately I don’t remember what the pinkish, purplish beads are. They are iridescent to a degree and I believe someone said they were a type of opal or pearl or something totally different than how they appeared.

And a close-up of the center

Next is a chevron necklace with dichoric beads.

Earrings, we all love earrings. All of these are complete except for poor Nemo, he still needs a mate.

And, there’s always the “works in progress”

An amulet bag, minus half the fringe and a strap. This is only about 1 1/2 by 2 inches.

And this lapis donut with sodalite beads

And naturally, Nate and I have to model a few pieces.

And because you all want to know where I lay my precious head, and you want to see my brand new bed that I love so much.

    As always, your beadwork is fantastic. And your kid is such a ham!

    BTW, not to be a bother or anything, but I didn’t know if you were going to make those changes to the Wife’s necklace. You mentioned it survived the fire. No hurry or anything, just wondering.

    The bed looks great. It just needs you in it. And not alone.
