Some new Jewelry.........

...........that I got finished in time to take to the Bead Fair in DesMoines.  (If you want to know more about the show check out yesterdays post.)  I have wanted to make these wrap necklaces for a while.  They are long about 48" with no clasp, so you can wear them single or wrapped to make multiple strands. 
 They have all kinds of little treasures in the strand and I made several colors.  I honestly had trouble stopping as they were just so much fun to put together and decide which bead might be fun to add next.

 I of course had to make some earrings to go with the necklaces.  Since I wanted to tie in the seed beads from the strand I made a tiny seed bead flower which is a take off of one in the October/November 2009 issue of Beadwork Magazine.

The earrings of course had to come in all the colors too.
