I had never beaded a donut bead before so enjoyed the new challenge. After surrounding the outer edge with a bezel I added some seed bead netting. Then finished it with a spiral beaded rope for the neckpiece. I am very pleased with the result. Something a little different.

I loved working with this beautiful Raku fired cabochon made by Marian Kasparian. The bisque firing of the clay makes it shine from within. Beautiful colours of blue, copper and silver. Below are two more cabochons embellished with a flower, beads, keishi and round pearls. The fringe of silver coloured beads with copper dagger drops make this a very striking one of a kind piece.

The lovely soft colours of this Amazonite made it a pleasure to work with. The brown flash highlighted the aquamarine of the stone. The variety of stones is amazing. I love working with them as each one is so different and inspirational.
A beautiful yellow Dragonfly Vintage button on a soft green background. Dragonflies make wonderful totem pieces as they have many amazing qualities. The bottom photo shows the silk bag in which it was shipped to it's new owner.
