| Thu sent me this wonderful version of the Terri Choker. This is what she wrote...
"One of my best friends has a birthday coming up, so I thought I'd make her a choker.
I used shiny black seed beads, silver-lined gold seed beads and Japanese simulated pearls for the choker.
I designed the earrings using all the beads I just mentioned, with the addition of gold faceted glass crystals."
I think Thu's friend is a verrry lucky woman!
Thanks for sharing Thu!

|This lovely piece is Jill's interpretation of the netted necklace tutorial. She wrote, "For such a complicated looking necklace it was really quite simple to do when broken down the way your instructions are in your tutorials." She used matte purple czech and matte frost MillHill.|
|The blue bracelet was Jill's very first try at peyote, using the stretchy bracelet tutorial. She says, "I used different sized beads, so the peyote is lumpy - would plan ahead next time so as to avoid lumps." She used Czech seedbeads and pewter spacers.
I say, I think it looks fine...lumps and all!
Here's what she said about her spirals - "I love the spiral stitch - the possibilities are truly endless. I made a few as gifts, and everyone really liked them. Something very elegant about the spiral. Used MillHill sb's ... I bought two different mixes of greens accidentally, but just mixed them all together. The purple is oilslick and clear sb's and garnet accent beads."
|And last, but not least is her gorgeous interpretation of Cecile's Wheel. She wrote of this one, " I really love the way this turned out. I made every mistake in the book on this one - accidentally cut it apart, counted wrong, redid the "arms" about 4 times before I decided what to do - you name it - I did it."
She used Czech glass purple beads, and dark purple oilslick seeds.
Hey, Jill, all that effort, and trial and error were well worth it! You did a beautiful job. I know it will inspire someone else to keep trying!
