Cabled Herringbone Bracelet-SOLD

I made this bracelet using a design by Rae Arlene Reller.  It was so much fun making this the second time around.  My first try my daughter said it looked like bacon, that's when I knew something had gone wrong.  I wish I would've taken a picture to show you.  The colors used were black, garnet, pearl cream, and translucent gold seed beads.  And a button clasp to finish it off.  This bracelet is 7 1/2" long and the width is 3/4".  $22.00

Twisted Herringbone Necklace with Glass Heart Pendant-SOLD

Black Twisted Tubular Herringbone Necklace with a Black and Turquoise Glass Heart Pendant
17" long

It's been a long time since I put any jewelry on here and there is a very good reason........I've been beading!!!  This necklace took me forever to make, it's my first ever beaded necklace using the twisted tubular herringbone stitch.  At first I thought this was the hardest thing I've ever made and wondered what on earth did I get myself into but once I got the hang of it I found it to be almost as relaxing as making chainmail.  I'm hooked on beading and am currently working on 3 different bracelets.  Check back in over the next few weeks.  I will also have some Husker bracelets for you lady fans out there.
