Jewels by Joyce

Thought I would share some of the jewelry I made last night. My friend, Hope, and I started beading last summer and worked our little fingers to the bone this past holiday season making something special for many of the people on our respective shopping lists. I really wish I had taken some pictures of the things I made at that time because many were very pretty. I love using the Swarovski crystals and pearls. I made a beautiful pearl necklace with pearls graduated in size in chocolate, taupe and cream with smokey topaz crystals between each pearl. That necklace was just stunning. It was my favorite piece. I'll have to make another one to show you. I made a few bracelets which I've shared below. It is such a fun, relaxing hobby. I actually dont' know what I like more - shopping for the supplies, or making the jewels!!!
I don't know if you can see these well enough, but I just wanted to give you somewhat of an idea of what I made last night. I'm hoping when you click on these pictures, you can get a better view. It was fun and I think the people I've made these for will enjoy them. Thanks for visiting. See you all soon!! Hope you had a great weekend. I know I did!! Now off to another week of work! Happy blogging!!!
