More jewelry

These probably won't impress experienced jewelry makers, but I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out.

The necklace is made with beads I got by cannibalizing an old strand of wooden beads and some clay and bamboo beads I bought in Providence, RI. Also, there are some seed beads from somewhere in Colorado.

The amethyst glass stuff was a gift for my mom.


Recently, I have been experimenting with some beaded jewelry. I like how these flat bronze beads look somewhat like pebbles. The necklace turned out to be more pretty than functional, however, because the two strands keep twisting together. I haven't figured out how to fix it... although one bead shop employee suggested that "more beads!" was the solution.
