Here's the jewelry I made yesterday, starting with a long chain / more blue than turquoise chunky bead and a red / orange bead that will go perfect with jeans:
Next up is a green / brown necklace. I made it really long so I could double wrap it. I also used mismatched bronze beads next to the green beads to change the fussy look a little. I am really loving it.
I could NOT get a good picture of this one. The square beads are a very deep blue grey / silver color and the small tube beads inbetween are ice blue. Very cool, very winter feel to it.
This one is really fun. The glass beads are a mustard-y yellow brown and burnt red swirled. Love. Thinking I need to restring on chain, though, to get rid of the wire completely.
This is my favorite of the day. It's so delicate looking and so, so pretty. Silver filagree and printed turquoise beads. I wanted it longer, but I bought out the last of the beads, so I went choker length. I'm not sure what I'll be wearing it with, but I'm definitely wearing this tomorrow!
And, mostly for Diane, my new purses. I really need to stay away from TJMaxx. Cheap Nine West pures are such a downfall...
Purse One, a faux croc deep burgandy/brown tote:
And Purse Two, a mustard colored bag that I am so in love with...

Then, my nephew Andy got married on Friday. He looked so handsome and Leza, his wife, looked beautiful. It was a cool and clear perfect fall day and from where I was sitting, everything seemed to have gone wonderfully. (all photos shamelessly stolen from family since I was a camera slacker all weekend!)
