Reveal days are always so exciting for me, the preparation, the anticipation, the excitement, the wonder and then the day. I loved each and every project, so much so I made double's on some. Being part of Beading Babes is wonderful and pushes my creativity. I generally buy the magazines Bead and Button and Bead Works and as I flip through I plan on this project and that project but I have to be honest, until I joined Beading Babes I rarely made anything from a pattern. I have found I really enjoy following a pattern and have learned valuable techniques that I can now incorporate into my own designs. Thanks to Karen for being such a great hostess. Can't wait for project 8.
Now for my reveals......
Enchanted Rivoli Earrings pattern by Csilla Csirmaz
I love these earrings and have received rave reviews for the ones I made myself. They are so elegant and yes enchanting and I have made several pairs. I didn't use the called for size 9s but I think they turned out gorgeous.
Gothic Butterfly bracelet pattern by Mikki Ferrugiaro
This was my favorite project, the best bracelet I have ever made. I love the fit, the feel and the design.
Scalloped Pearl bracelet pattern by Angelle Procopio
A cute bracelet and so different from the above. Scalloped Pearls was really fun to make and an easy pattern to follow. I had to have earrings to go with this one as well.
Last but not least the Roller Bead necklace. The roller beads were really fun to make and I can see making lots more and incorporating them in other pieces of jewelery or just switching the necklace up.
Thanks again Karen, hope everyone enjoys!!!
