Gerbera Pendants Necklace

Something I recently made just for relaxation and fun... a necklace with pendants (made with crystal navettes and Czech glass dagger beads) which remind me of Gerbera flowers, in bright green and orange colors, following the 2013 neon colors trend... I love those 2-color Czech dagger beads!

And some new publications...

Squares with a Twist Bracelet: my Designer of the Year project in Aug/Sept 2013 issue of Beadwork magazine, which is done in one continuous stitch, creating strings that keep their twisted profile.
