I love making glass beads, but sometimes I have the urge to do other things. It had been a while since I’d made anything for myself, so when I saw a cool wrap bracelet in a local bead store, I decided I HAD to make one. I found a great tutorial on Lampwork Etc. by Hannah Rosner so I gathered materials and made this a few weeks ago in about 2 hours:

Then I felt the need to do something with wire, so yesterday I made these cool earrings from a tutorial by JewlieBeads:

I think they turned out pretty cool! And she’s having a sale right now in her shop. You can snap this or several other great tutorials up for 20% off right now. Or if you aren’t into making wire jewelry, you can just buy her pretty creations. (not sure how long her sale will go.)

I’m feeling pretty fulfilled now, and I am looking forward to wearing my new earrings tomorrow…
