Recent earrings and pendant necklaces

On one glorious afternoon with my best friend, her daughter and cousin,  we made some jewelry.  

I try to work on my WIPs (works in progress) as much as I can, because of my busy schedule, it can be challenging.  I shop for various beads and findings all the time.  I find many items at closeout and discount stores when I am not using coupons from Michael's or Joann's.

Below is a pair of moonstone earrings with sterling silver findings and I used some chipped moonstone beads I bought at Michael's.  

This pair below has sterling silver fish hooks and agate beads.  

This pair has a Onyx spacer and sterling silver fishhooks.  The stone may be a dyed crazy agate, but I am not sure.

Rose quartz beads are easy to identify and are common.  These heart shaped beads came in various sizes.

This pair has a jade spacer and sterling silver fish hooks.

This pair is all rose quartz and sterling silver.  

It's fun to work with pendants and I like simple cord necklaces.  I hope to work on some bigger and longer beaded styles this summer.  Below is an Amethyst pendant necklace.

Rose Quartz....

These earrings are crazy agate with sterling silver!

Citrine pendant with a soft satin cord.

Glass beads are lightweight and beautiful.  I wanted to make a matching bracelet to go with the earrings. 

These bright yellow beads and sea blue beads were a Tuesday morning find.   They became stretch bracelets. 

My friend's patio table was full of stray beads even after we finished and she carefully collected some after I left for the night.  They were waiting for me the next time I stopped by!
