    It is addicting! I just did a crystal one for July, I'll have to get a pic tomorrow and post it. Here are a few of the things that I have done, all these are from classes I taught. My personal stuff is more labor intensive, like large beaded cuffs, and chain maille. Plan to make lots of crock pot meals, cause you will hate to stop and cook ...and housework ...foregtaboutit :lmao:

    This is an anklet that was a beading class last year.

    This is an eyeglass chain, and I made a matching ID badge holder

    I haven't taken pictures of most of mine but here's an early one. It is addicting, from hunting and purchasing beads and stones, to planning making the jewelry.

    I've been beading for many years. More in the past when the eyes would let me see better. But now I need to learn how to put pictures into these posts so I can show some work.

    Totally addictive, here's a bracelet I made recently. At the moment I'm into making my own beads in polymer clay and hope to start lampworking soon.

    This is basically a loomed base as I was too lazy to do peyote stitch which I then embellished with branch fringe on the edges, which was the tough part, and pearls, fringe and various beads and buttons in the middle which was really fun!
