This Week's Project: Sunny CZ Necklace & Earrings

These Cubic Zirconia Beads from Artbeads.com have been such fun to work with!

This week's project makes use of the yellow Cubic Zirconia teardrop I mentioned on Monday and the 8mm Yellow Cushions that I mentioned on Thursday. I threw in a few miscellaneous beads I had on hand including some 4mm bicone glass beads.

The bicones are not crystals, but I thought they were a nice fit because the color was close and they won't be competing at all with the CZ's. I think what really made this fun and helped the yellow stand out is the Soft Flex "econoflex" beading wire in Autumn Brown which I found at Hobby Lobby.

I hope everyone had a happy holiday and are now enjoying a nice weekend with time for arts and crafts! It's "craft night" for me which means a night full of fun, food and crafts till the wee hours with family and friends. Yay!

The project I am taking is a holiday bracelet that will coordinate well with the one I took last year. I normally do not use elastic in my jewelry pieces, but I think we will give it a try this time just for something different.

It will be full of sparkle and if I can get them done in time, I will be making a fun 12 bead bauble for the focal piece for each one...I better get busy and head over to the craft store!! :)

Have a great day!!

That necklace is so lovely. The SoftFlex exposed wire is a truly brilliant touch, too.

Looking forward to seeing the holiday craft project!
