Playing In the Beads....

Silver, pewter, gray swarovskis, light gray fresh water pearls, gray glass flat beads, gray etched glass beads, just a hodge podge of silvers. Waiting for some silver crimp covers to finish it.

I was having fun and making these for myself. I don't have anything to wear the bracelets with, but the watch goes with just about everything I own. Hhhhmmmm, may need to go shopping.
Yellow turquoise, silver spacers, gray swarovskis, and I don't remember the bigger round gray beads.

Red coral, freshwater lentils, swarovski squares, lampwork glass, recycled glass, silver, freshwater pearl, etched glass, etc.... Also waiting on crimp covers to finish.
