What good is it to be able to make beautiful creations if you don't share them with those in your life who are extra special and dear?
This week I've worked on a few gifts :)
That first piece is for my Mother In law who isn't a big jewelery lady, but wanted some Russian work for her jacket. :)

Netted cuffs. These type will be showing up in my shop shortly. I've really gotten to like them!

As will some of these! I love herringbone! It can be time consuming, but there is something about the flow of it that is amazing.

I bought these "ladies" from Mugsysbeads
a little while back after coming across them and simply falling in LOVE with them! Aren't they they cutest?
There are a couple of special little ladies in my life who will be getting a special package in the mail :).

A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Midsummer Night's Dream is the theme for the Etsy Bead Weaver Team's July Challenge!!

It has turned out some incredible pieces, as always!

Here is my entry:

I wanted to capture some of my favorite aspects of this enchanting story.
I am hoping that you can see in this bracelet the enchantment that surrounded the night, the mischievous Robin Goodfellow, the beautiful Titania, the fairies, the glories of the night wood.

This cuff measures just a little over 8" (21 cm)including clasp when closed.

Clasp is made of a beaded toggle and heavy loop, so those with metal allergies need not worry.

Many hours and lots of love went into this piece.

For sale in my etsy shop

Be SURE to go and vote for your favourite piece and drool over the rest!
Voting starts today and runs through the 15th!
