    Wonderful designs. I can’t bead to save my life, so I always appreciate the technique and work that goes into beaded pieces. My favorite pieces to wear would have to be the 2nd last necklace and memory wire bracelet. They both have a wonderful warm vintage feel to them.

      Thank you so very much @Janice….what a compliment!! ~KM

  9. Aw, I love how the focal in the first necklace is covered in dragonflies! How perfect is that!? And those colors are just stunning together 🙂 I think you did a magnificent job with your whole soup! Definitely got a lot of pieces put together from it, that’s for sure!

    I love the bezel you’ve done for your first piece. I can never get fringe to hang quite right, and yours looks great on there!

    It’s a great ensemble: I love how you added in the topaz/gold to accent the warm blues. Such a lovely color. And of course your craftsmanship is impeccable, I’ve loved to watch you create over the past year.

    It is all so gorgeous, I absolutely love both orange and turquoise/yellow combo, they are both my favs 🙂 the beadweaved necklace is awesome – how did you manage to bezel a triangle…

    • Krafty Max
      |

      Lots of practice @PiPa!! I have been beading for almost 40 years, and if you are careful you can do a triangle just like a circle!! THANK YOU!! ~KM

    Hi Max, The dragonfly necklace is wonderful. You showcased the focal well and I like the netted straps and fringe. The filigree set is beautiful too. The bracelet is simple but pretty and it would go well with either of the first too sets. Great job using your soup ingredients. I like the soup that you sent to your partner.
