Wednesday Wrap-Up

Here's what I've been doing this week. First of all, I dumped some stuff in my SALE section of my shop. I've got beaded beads, rings, bracelets, pendants, all kinds of goodness and some really low prices. I know I've got three summer birthdays to plan for around here, and I'm sure you've got a couple too. It's the last chance for these little guys, and I'll be moving them out of the store on Saturday, so if you like 'em, get 'em now.

Also, I made myself a twisted herringbone necklace in some cool greens with a shiny shimmery AB finish. Looks very lizard-like.
Maybe I should call it Jurassic. I'm still working on the best way to cap these necklaces. I bought bead caps that I didn't like, but I'm still not sure about the loose wire wrapping that I decided to go with. I'm gonna have to play around with it.

Finally, I made another version of my French Royalty Ring (can you tell I'm currently obsessed with this green color?) I'm planning on making this one into a tutorial, but it's not an easy task. So, I'm shooting to have it done by the end of June.

Okay, finally....
Today is the last day to vote for BEAD STAR my entries are at the top of my blog, please vote!
It's also time to vote for El Reto over at Beads Perles blog. The challenge last month was to create a bracelet with a unique peyote pattern, there are some very neat entries, I hope you'll check it out.
Last thing to vote for (feels like November, huh?) is the Etsy Beadweaver's monthly challenge. I entered my Nautilus Necklace, but there are some definite beauties.
Thanks for stickin' around, enjoy your hump day and good luck to all my Bead Star buddies!
