So I have some family coming in June so i decided to start making  a bunch of jewelry to make up for the 7 years that we have been apart. Here are a few of the things ive made so far.

This is based on Nancy Zellers  Petite charm pendant in the April/May 2011 super beadwork issue.


I took one of the tabs of the palm coast necklace that Wendy  Hubick and Sue Jackson did in the November 2012 issue added a embroidered cab and a simple beaded chain

I call this zebra

and this bracelet is from a kit



Show me your fantasy, and ill bead you your world.

The first one and the Zebra are my favorites, especially Zebra.  I'm a sucker for black and white- it always looks so crisp and clean.

Oh, they are awesome, actually every item has its own flavor, the one based on based on Nancy Zellers  Petite charm pendant is elegant, and the second one is added with national characteristics (personal views), the zebra is cute, I love the cute one!! Oh, thanks for the share! Big Smile 

Have fun with your family after the seven years of being apart (I know it might be a little hard for you), hope your items can bring them surprises! Big Smile

The bracelet is exactly my taste.  If I can ask, where did you get the kit?
