Beadazzled swap

I am in a swap where beads had to form part of the item - I considered making a small beaded paper quilt, but in the end decided to make jewellery.

The necklace is a piece of fine memory wire, with some seed and bugle beads and a large disc of jasper, and the earrings use the same seed beads and small pieces of jasper. The large jasper disc is a bit darker than it looks on the photograph.

All the beads were from a 'Tropical Surf bead soup' box from Beverly Gilbert, whose class I took at Art & Soul last year. Beverly is a fabulous bead artist and a great teacher, I recommend her classes highly.

This is whizzing around the world to Australia, where I hope Trizzy likes it - I thought the colours would suit her!
