Winter Jewelry from Winter Canes

You’ve seen the canes, you’ve seen the beads – now see the jewelry.

I sat and looked at these beads for a long time before I decided what I wanted to do with them. I thought about selling them separately as focal beads for wire wrapping, I thought about just putting together the usual eight bead pillow set and letting it go at that. Then, I thought about creating jewelry myself with them.

I rarely get a chance to sit down and just bead, but I decided to take a day and just make necklaces and bracelets from these beads. I had a lot of matching glass and pearl beads in blues and greens and I thought I might just make sets of my own. I might even keep them for myself.

I have them in my Artfire shop and I may still take them for my own; I particularly like the cat’s eye bracelet :)

I had a lot of fun putting these together and hope you enjoy the pretty colors :)

Happy Holidays
