Beaded Heart

This is for my niece's wedding. The heart is going to be attached to a purse that I am making. The heart is made with vertical netting, but to get it into the heart shape I had to attach rows to the "finished" rows. This was the first time I have done vertical netting and it was a little tricky adding the rows to the finished area. I really like the way it turned out and my niece is going to have a spectacular purse for her wedding this fall.

Big Project

I have started a big project--the purse for the bride (November wedding). I have worked on the netting for the purse the last two nights. The netting consists of ivory seed beads and 2 mm gold filled beads. It will cover the entire front of the purse. In the center of each of the diamond shapes is going to be a 4 mm Swarovski siam crystal. Yes, I have plently of the crystals for the purse--I ordered 300. I ordered 1,000 of the gold filled 2 mm beads and they are almost gone. Wow, I thought they would last longer than that. Bye for now.

And a red rose bracelet.
Okay, I am doing this update with a dial-up connection. I am at my sister's house and I have been working on jewelry for the weddings. I have lots of new pictures that I just scanned with my sister's scanner. Her scanner is a little different from mine--hers is on a slant so the jewelry kept sliding around when I was trying to scan it, so please excuse the clumped jewelry.
