2 Earrings for Church auction

This year I'm participating and donating 2 easy earrings for Youth Ministry at my church, to help with their mission trip. It's called Auction Talent so if I win, I can teach basic how to make the earrings for beginners. It'll be fun.

So... the update. The Youth Auction was a hit and the total was $4,100. Not bad. My earrings were actually bought by Pastor's Wife for $35.00. Yahooiiii....  I hope she enjoys them.

When I grew up back in Asia, my parents bought a pet for us, a siamang monkey named Nopi.
I saw this pattern made by Sigrid Wynne-Evans and reminded me of our Nopi, who died during teeth surgery. This chimp tapestry uses 25 colors of delica 11/0 beads, 2.80 x 3.53 inches (7.1 x 9 cm).

Tomorrow is Mother's Day, so Happy Mother's Day to all of you!!

Red Bugle Embellishment Necklace

I saw this project in a beading magazine and decided to make one for my friend for her Christmas gift 2 years ago. I made a light blue color because it is her favorite color.
I've wanted to make a red color version for myself for a while, and finally I am able to make and finished it today. I made  red heart earrings to go with the necklace.
I can't wait to wear it sometime soon.
