I love chenille stitch (a sort of cross between herringbone and peyote).  These bracelets work up quickly, and I just made a simple clasp with a rondelle and a beaded loop.



This necklace has a black diamond rivoli with a netted bezel, embellished with more netting, and netted straps worked directly off the bezel embellishment.bdiamondgunmetalgreyThe combination of black diamond with gunmetal and silvery grey is one I hadn’t used before, but I think it is very effective and elegant.

This pendant came from a variation of the little stars I used to make the chain of stars choker (see here). Each little star is formed by a peyote bezel around a 4mm fire polish bead, then a round of netting to form the points. The bail is made from 3 more little stars. It has been hanging on the Christmas tree for the last couple of weeks!
