Jewelry day

My Mom sent me these beads from Arizona awhile back, I decided today was the day to make myself something from them. I thought the dragonfly clasp was fun and it will definitely be seen with my hair cut short. I also made two pairs of earrings, didn't know which one I would like the best so I made both, now I have choices.

With the pink/brown beads I made necklace, earrings and bracelet. I usually don't wear a whole set of anything but I like the option to do so. I found the big/small rose beads in Mom's stuff. (thanks for sharing Mom!)
(every pic is sideways and I don't know how to fix it....)
While I was busy so was Sara, she has been wanting a necklace like the one on the cover of a book. This is her House of Night necklace. The one on the book cover had a bigger charm and diamond shaped beads. I think she did ok with her DIY knock off. She's happy with it and I'm happy that she spent time with me doing something crafty.

I also made charm bracelets for work, 14 bracelets, 3 necklaces and 5 bracelets with 40 charms on the each! My hands were cramped up by the 5th bracelet, ugh! Shop Hop started today, have more samples to show off but I'm to tired to find my camera and download pic's. Tomorrow Sara has the State Geography Bee in Omaha so we will be gone all day. Good Luck Sara!
