Weekend Crafting

The pics are from last weekend - I again managed to find some time for my crafting. Yay! I made, as you can see, two bracelets, and I re-crafted (is this a word?) a pair of earrings.

My 'birdies' earrings. I have a thing for birds this winter, apparently. I got these on Etsy, from BeadsByEvelyn, and they used to look like this. I wore them a few times and then figured they lacked colour. So I played with them a little. I added the pink bows and replaced the pearls with the red hearts & turqouise beads. What do you think? Which version do you prefer?

A new bracelet - not for myself, though. I have plenty. But I 'had to' make it, if you know what I mean. I had some new beads, the floral ones. I'd been thinking how to incorporate them into my jewellery but the more I thought about it the less I knew what to do. Then it just came to me - this is the result!

Another new bracelet, again made for the sake of it, not for 'domestic use'. I like the different blues and the various shapes of the glass beads - unfortunately I'd run out of chain which would be a nice finishing touch.

As my 100th post is approaching, I thought I'd have another giveaway and one of these bracelets will be the prize! When the time comes I'll let you know, and you can choose the one you like best!
