This pic is the bracelet & the earrings. The bracelet has a teapot with a silver bead for the body & tea bag charm and a cup & saucer charm & then I added a cloisonne butterfly with swarovski crystals. The earrings are made with s black bead with pink flowers, and a square pink bead and two silver beads added to wires.
The whole set together. Close up of the bottom of the necklace on the set below.
This set is made with black onxy nuggets & silver beads and faceted black beads hook the leopardskin jasper donut to the necklace and two little circles of sead beads are between the two.
This pic just shows how long the necklace really is. This set is made with three different brown & clear mix glass beads. One is heart shaped, one is kind of fluted or like a nugget and the third is a flat rhondelle spacer bead. I made the earrings with one of the nuggets and 4 spacer beads handing from a gold teardrop frame.

This set is another one made with leopardskin jasper but it is a lighter more tan colored shade. There are also some peace jasper green beads on the necklace. The graduated set at the bottom of the necklace I have had a long time. I bought them at Ebersoles who are still going out of business. I bought the little round jasper beads from Rocky Mountain Gems. I used them in the earrings also. I've described the beads as best I could just from memory so may have some of the names wrong & its 1:30 in the A.M. so probably not so bright. I want to do some bead weaving too. Stay tuned.
A picture I took today of Sammy sitting on Don's lap. Kind of a boney place to sit. She has been moving awfully slow lately and she has this awful croupy sounding cough which the vet says is from liquid around her heart. She's taking pills to that are like water pills but it doesn't seem to help the cough any. She is old and we are probably getting near losing her. Don hopes she goes in her sleep as he doesn't want to have to decide to put her to sleep. She tries to play ball for a little bit but then has to stop and cough. Its such a deep awful sound and it shakes her whole body. She eats good and doesn't seem to hurt but she looks so sad just laying around. She has always been so active.
