Perfect Pearls and Polymer Clay

I have been having a little dabble making some beads with my bead roller and perfect pearls.

This first one is a black,white and lilac mix bead with some Interference Violet perfect pearls added.

This second one is the same mix but I then added more white and mixed it a bit more. I have used Berry Twist perfect pearls for this bead.

I have no idea what I will do with them yet!!

A Pink Set

This is a lampwork bead set comprising of a 3 strand necklace, a charm bracelet and earings.

I have used an assortment of pink lampwork beads, crystals, bicones, white cats eye beads, silver flower and heart charms and also silver bead caps. The necklace and bracelet both have toggle clasps.

My First Charm Bracelet

This is my first charm bracelet. The wire looping isn't up to much but I think it is wearable.

Lots of lovely pearls and crystals with this one along with some acrylic flower and leaf beads.

How it all began

This is the very first necklace I made about 3-4 weeks ago.

This is a 3 strand illusion necklace made from Beadsmith illusion cord. The beads are purple and white faux pearl and I've also used silver tube crimp beads. The clasp is a 3 hole toggle clasp.

My first post on So Many Beads, Not Enough Cash

Hi, I am very new to beading so don't expect too much at first!! I also have a cardmaking blog which has been running since 2007 but I wanted the two blogs to be seperate.
I've done the usual newbie thing and bought lots of bits and pieces (going in head first)! Over the last few weeks I have made a few pieces and I will take some photos and be putting them on this blog.
I hope you will enjoy (or laugh) at my first attempts and then stay with me to see how I grow.
