New Pieces

I recently finished these pieces. The first will be a secondary raffle prize when the Pink Artist doll "Love Squared" is raffled off this coming fall. The pendant is approximately 2 1/2 inches across and has fresh water pearls and gemstones embedded in bead embroidery. The necklace is Russian Spiral.

The two pins below are the beginning of a line I hope to market eventually. It will consist of pins, pendants and possibly earrings and barrettes. It is such fun doing these small items and so rewarding to see them take shape. They will all be one of a kind. I never did like having to make the same thing repeatedly. They will have gemstones, crystals, and perhaps some unknown items included in the bead embroidery.

They are beautiful! I love paisley's! I also love the medalion (sp) on the necklace. Simple and elegant.
Cheers, Denise

I really like all three pieces. You used color well, especially on the paisley/curly-cue pins :) I am new to bead embroidery and am inspired now to take a piece I'm working on in another direction.

Thank you all for the nice compliments. It's becoming very hard to put these down and finish other projects. Don't you love it when you can get so enthused about what you are doing?

Arline - this stuff is gorgeous. The Russian spiral is one of the most unique things I've seen in a while. Fab!

I think when you get that excited about doing something, it shows in the work too and adds some special sparkle to it!
