Oh man, the last month of 2014 sure was dark and dreary! Where I live, it rained on and off for what seems like weeks. I went to work in the dark, came home in the dark, and on the weekends, nothing but rain. Then a miracle occurred! The sun finally came out on Dec 26’th and I found myself instantly energized!

I have made a few things since then (squeezed in between feasts, family gatherings, travel – you know, the usual holiday madness!

This is my first ever Chan Luu Bracelet. I made it with graduated sizes of Jasper gemstones. A good first effort, I know I will get better at this!

This is a leather woven knot that I made into earrings (more difficult that the Chan Luu by far!)

I did a few of these undulating  woven bracelets using Czech Tila beads

This one uses 3mm crystals for a little bling!

This one uses all of my “lonely only” Tilas in a nice colorful patchwork design:

This one uses the smaller regular Tila beads instead of the heavier Czech glass Tilas

I also started using Super Duos in my weaving as well. I made a woven mesh that I took apart because I did not like the colors! Then I did this bracelet:

Well, I hope to have more to show off soon. I am starting another new weave today. I will keep you posted!
