I hadn't dragged out my boxes of beads in ages. Today the weather is a cold, dark, dreary, rainy day. Since it was a nasty outside, I thought I would make a gift while I was watching a nature program on TV. I decided to make a bracelet and earring set for a birthday gift. With the poor lighting today the oval beads I used don't really show how pretty they actually are in the photo above. The beads are lighter than they appear in the photo. With the mottled light turquoise/blue and green oval beads, I used silver spacer beads and small pale blue and green crystals. The beads had a mixture of light and dark beads on the strand. The color of these beads remind me of the ocean. I have so many strands of beads that are just waiting to made into jewelry. When will I get to them is the question.
