Peace, Love & Bead Bloggers!

It's time to share....

Sunday is the perfect time for sharing the bead blogger happenings from the past week. I also wanted to share my finished craft night necklace and earrings.

We all had a GREAT time and loved all the sparkle. We used bright silver beading wire and just flattened our crimp tubes for a very simple, but fabulous project that didn't require any special beading knowledge or skills. Just the ability to string beads and squeeze pliers.

I hope you all had a great weekend! If you have an extra couple minutes, check out the fun sites below.

That is lovely! I love the 'floating' necklaces. is that what they call them? I love the simplicity of this style. it says so much with so little.

I like your design..the soft green is great for summer and the floating design looks so light and feminine.
