The start to a very good year!

These are all variations of the Cubic Right Angle Weave pattern. I have made different accents for each necklace. They are all made with size 8 seed beads and have Swarovski crystal elements.

These are earrings I made to look like slides. The top picture is Delica seed beads woven in a peyote stitch to mimic Astrocytes in the brain. The bottom picture mimics Jones light green stain on Kidney. These are both original patterns by designer Mequita Praet.

Three new rings. Top ones is 8x8 mm silver cube, silver bicones and silver seed beads. Middle one is rose gold 8x8 cube with rose gold bicones and seed beads. The bottom one is Metallic Blue 3mm bicones with gold seed beads in a square pillow design.
