A Great Day for Beading

Cold, snowy days are the perfect days for beading. It's been snowing off and on all day. Although its just a dusting, its absolutely beautiful outside. I was inspired to make something new. I've been beading all day and just completed these earrings I call "Hoop Dreams". These beauties are made with brickstitch.

I also finished a bracelet I began before Christmas. I used blue and red 8.0 beads in a swirl stitch with a magnetic clasp closure. I think it came out very nice for my first attempt with the swirl stitch.

Hooray for me!!!! I'm on vacation all this week. A well deserved vacation I might add and I hope to work on lots of projects. Stop back to see what new items I showcase later this week.
