With a lot of help from my friends .... I made a pair of earrings:

blogging at Mad Designs
Aren't these pretty? I recently met Candice Sexton. She + several of my GFs attend bead club together. They are amazing with all the awesome things they create!!! At a recent holiday party, Candy brought this pattern + supplies needed to make earrings. Each of us selected beads in different colors + styles. I was not in my comfort zone, tho, think I chose good colors! Candy will be teaching at the Bead + Button Show (June) Her etsy is loaded with kits + patterns. What talent!!!! Candy was a trooper - wonderful supplies, excellent tips, and endless resource for all things beading. My friends teach and take classes at The Artisan's Workshop (think all things glass, beads, creative!).
It was my lucky day as I won the drawing for a beautiful autumn color bracelet - made by Candy - with beads and sequins. It is fun to wear.
Did you notice the beaded cat fob in the above photo? GF Beth makes a Perfect Peyote Stitch!!! This Fob kit is from Fern Ridge Collections. I had it attached to the zipper pull on my hand bag - it was made by GF Beth - notice the mouse in the fringe?
................. stay tuned for Beading -- Part Two
