A tassel of beads topped by a ceramic bird bead I made with dangles featuring Elaine Ray beads and gimp.

It’s hanging off that brass neck wire I love to use and reuse.

Two chains, several ceramic beads, many glazes.

It was hot today. Even these necklaces were almost too much.

Some days I can’t take a good picture.

At least I like the necklace.

Waxed linen stitches together Elaine Ray beads and a bit of glass. Find complete instructions here.

Too simple-round wood beads with a pierced Elaine Ray ceramic bead and a fossilized ammonite pendant.

A mix of elements; red Chinese ceramic, very old Tibetian turquoise, Elaine Ray hand made ceramic, a drilled ammonite fossil, African green amber, a carved bone die. All strung and knotted on red leather cording, finished with a copper-plated steel chain and lobster claw clasp.

Haphazard but meaningful, if only to me.
