Jewelry this Week

It's been a beady kind of week! Beading Babes has a challenge going on and I chose to do "Scalloped Pearls" from October 2012 edition of Bead & Button. I enjoyed making it so much I made another. The first is done using the same size beads suggested in the tutorial. I only had one color of the cubes so that's what I used. The second bracelet is made using the editor's suggestion to substitute size 6 and size 11 seed beads for the two sizes of cubes. The purple pearls don't show as purple in my pic. It's kind of Red Hat Lady but I like the way it came out! My friend Annette Holbert has her Tila Bead design "Simply Triangular" in Oct-Nov 2012 Beadwork. I decided to give it a try. Kassie Inman's design "Quilt Cuff" in the same edition is next! I found a chainmaille weave that I haven't done so I tackled that also. It's called Viper Scale and it so much quicker than Dragon Scale!
