With some extra time on my hands this holiday weekend, I made another pair of earrings and a bracelet. Both turned out pretty well with minor modifications needed to the bracelet.
For the bracelet, the finished size was supposed to be 7.5 inches, but mine was closer to 8. It was way too big for my wrist, so I re-did each side removing 7 beads in the process. After that the size was just right.
This weekend I made a few more necklaces inspired by Fusion Beads.
Lotus and the Koi Necklace
I love this one because it’s very zen-like and makes me feel peaceful. I wish the chains would stay separated better though. They keep getting all twisted together.

This weekend I pulled out my old jewelry making supplies and put together a few small projects. First up was this bracelet and earrings that I think go well together: I got the inspiration for these projects from Fusion Beads. The bracelet I modified by replacing the mauve bead with this teal one and swapping the accents for silver. I also used a bit of hot glue to hold the side beads in place because they were sliding all over the place.

I felt like making a few pairs of holiday earrings and thought these were super cute. I really adore the chubby little Santas with their dangling feet. I can’t wait to wear these during the holidays.
