Re-Making and Re-Discovering

In my previous post "In the Beginning", I said I was planning on re-making some older necklaces.  As you can see in the photo above, I have done just that with one of them.  (It is currently listed at my ArtFire shop)  Using size 8 seed beads instead of those tiny size 11s made the work go so much faster.  I liked it so much, I started playing around with making some entirely new necklaces with matching earrings...like this set:



And, a necklace with a matching "bangle" bracelet - no clasp, no button, just one continuous circle!  I love them and will definitely make more!  Here is one of them:


Then, I made a set with a necklace, earrings, and a bangle bracelet (I'm keeping this set for myself I think):


Yes, I still plan to re-make the other 3 older necklaces...sometime soon.
