Beaded gifts I've made recently

Some of the gifts I've made this year. I decided to bead a necklace or bracelet for each of my co-worker's birthdays this year. There are 3 or 4 I forgot to take pictures of, sadly, but I'll try to remember to ask them to bring them in for a photo. Each was selected with the particular person in mind, taking into consideration their interests and personal style. I have more detailed info attached to the pics in my scrapbook here, in the album titled Beaded Gifts.

This one was for a lady who loves her cats and doesn't wear much jewelry/bling.
Tile


Sea2
Sea-themed for a lady who loves the outdoors.

GrnDouble
This was for a gal who likes a little bling, wears larger, more showy pieces of arty jewelry.

Dragonfly
For the dragonfly lover in our group.

N1
For our boss who has my love of bling and adores the color turquoise.
N3
Modeling it on my chubby neck to show how it fits. The pattern was called Lace Waves and I used Swarovski bicone ABs for extra shine. I may have to make one for myself. :o)

These are great!! I am not usually a huge fan of beaded stuff, but you have done a lovely job. The last one (lace waves) is really stunning! The Swarovski bling doesn't show up in the photo, but I can image the super sparkle on it!! You wouldn't happen to have a pattern/tutorial for that one???

It's apparently actually called Scalloped Lace and it came from this book: http://www.kalmbachstore.com/64551.html
It calls for around 250 bicones in two colors, but I'm pretty sure I didn't use all the ones I bought.
