I also completed the five necklaces that I told you about. Here's a teaser shot of those, since they are gifts and you never know who might be looking.
I also created a new bracelet with matching earrings. The bracelet drove me nuts and took hours to make (and I'd already spent a good five hours on those necklaces). I was stringing fluorite cube beads on super fine sterling chain, but some of them required enlarging the holes. Having never worked with fluorite before, I didn't know that they would simply flake apart anywhere that there was a microscopic fracture in the stone. No wonder some of those beads already had corners missing. I completely destroyed two of them. So the bracelet isn't perfect, but handmade shouldn't be perfect, right? I won't post a picture of the earrings, but you'll be able to see them in my Etsy shop....just as soon as I head over and get them listed.
