July Fave's

July has  been a bit of a challenging month.  Vacation, a party we hosted and other unplanned items. So it was difficult to add as much as I would like to my beading repetoire but here are two of my favorite July creations.
Forest Fantasy Earrings

I just love earrings using brick stitch around a decorative bead. I had saved this pattern for a long time and finally got around to making it.

Next up was a birthday gift for one of my office-mates. I am having a terrific time with these ruffle cabochons and really like the Piccasso-like design in this one.
PIN Picasso!

Happy July 4th!

I love this photo a friend took at last year's Fiesta Days Parade in Cave Creek. It seemed a great image to wish everyone a safe and happy 4th of July! And for anyone who looks forward to my beading entries, below is a photo of a cute earring pattern from BeadnButton magazine. The bead caps are formed with herringbone stitch and are a festive addition to any summer outfit.
