Beaded Necklace

Here is a photo of a beaded necklace that I made for my daughter’s birthday.  The beads are Tiger Eye stone hollow squares, black glass square beads  inside the Tiger Eyes, and the round black beads are glass.

Beading is strictly a hobby with me.  More of a dabbler than a true artist, my interests involve various handcrafts such as crocheting (not knitting,) and assorted crafts.  Needlework, too, I used to like to do embroidery.  Fortunately,  I am a writer, and as such have produced work in a variety of literary pursuits.

As is the way with many crafters, I am a great afficianado of crafts magazines, and have ear-marked lots of magazines over the years, with little place-markers indicating things I want to make or do.  On rare occasions  something finds its way to my crafts table…mostly made of yarn or beads.

    1. thanks, its for my youngest daughter, who is having her Big 5-0 this year. I am making jewelry for all the females, daughters, grands, and greats…the little ones are 8, 9, and 10…and they enjoy beaded bracelets and the like.

    1. I know what you mean…just dragging out the boxes, baskets, containers and looking over the stash, deciding what to make…. actually doing the beading is more fun than work. 🙂


  1. It’s beautiful! I love the tiger eye beads, too, and recently did a wire and bead choker with tiger eyes – maybe I’ll post my latest creation, you’ve inspired me! Happy holidays to you and your lovely family ;^) ❤


    1. by all means, I’d love to see it. I haven’t worked with wire yet, except some coiled wire bracelets. Let’s put our creations on our blogs so they don’t just languish in a drawer someplace. 🙂


      1. Ok, so I did – Thanks for the great advice and encouragement! (I gave you a shoutout, too!) I love making jewelry, but I rarely post about it. To be honest, I’m not very good at closeup photos, but I hope these came out okay. Happy Weekend! ;^) ❤ ❤ ❤
