With Love...

I created these heart-shaped earrings for My Czech Beads competition prepared by Preciosa Ornela.
The theme of the month for January is 'With Love...'
This is my vision of jewelry full of love.
Materials used: Czech seed beads (rocailles, 3-cut beads) and beads, nylon cord, findings. And as you see I used three colors of 3-cut beads to make the ombre effect.

Macrame and Beadwork

Purple, gold, bronze... love these colors :-)
The micro macrame bracelet made of Czech seed beads (iris color), glass beads, nylon cords (C-lon bead cord and Chinese knotting cord).
And the earrings are with biwa pearls and chips.

Bugle Beads

Half an hour ago I've received a letter from Preciosa Ornela. Thank you!
I really like to use bugle beads in the making of earrings.
For example:

Water and Earth

Tribal style in dark colors.
As always I used Czech seed beads and beads, a bit of Toho bugle beads, Miyuki Delica beads, nylon cord, findings.
To compare
I associate the dark earrings with water and earth, the light ones with fire and air.

Amazing Day! Part 1

Today I've received a gift from my dear friend Carrie
and the beads (I've won in the last challenge) from lovely Valentina.
I'm happy and sing the song 'Happy' ;-)
Look what I got:
Carrie made for me peacock earrings. They are so gorgeous and delicate. I think they would be great for a special occasion. And the second ones with long fringe are from the Indian reservation in the United States. I love the colors and long fringe!
Colorful and beautiful beads
Lovely chain with rhinestones
I don't know how dreams come true but they do. And dreams not only about material things / stuff, about relationships and good deeds too.
And today we celebrate Old New Year in Ukraine.
