More New Stuff - Taste of Ethnic & More 4th of July

I used some wood teardrops and acrylic black and gold beads to make this next one. It looks great with a black strapless halter trimmed in gold. Has an ethnic flair. A little on the bold side. Picture is a little dark.

I call this one July 4th Simplicity Bracelet. The picture does not do it justice. It is gorgeous and speaks elegance in volumes.

New jewlery Stuff

Well I've been working a little bit trying a new technique. A very talented beader Kassie Inman, who is a member of an internet group of beaders,  beaded a netted set that was gorgeous. She took her technique from 's infinity bangle that uses the filled netting technique. What you see below is my humble attempt at that technique. It took awhile to finish but I love it and have plans for one in blue.

This one is done in  6mm olivine glass peals, with 4 and 6mm firepolish rounds and 11/0 gold and eucalyptus ab seed beads with a self peyote clasp. Let me know what you think.

The Gospel of Red, White and Blue

While life had beaten us blue. The red blood of Jesus was applied. This washed us white as snow the day that Jesus died. This was the cost of our freedom. This was our Independence Day.

Happy 4th.
