Beaded Jewellery (& My Remedy For Flu)

I haven't made anything new again yet, so I thought I'd post some of the beaded jewelleries I made some times back.

Here's just a fun little bracelet I made with 2 "strands" of beading chain:
I  added some beads to head pins and attached them to the chain  (I've worn it quite often, that's why some of them are a bit bent):

Here's one I made using an odd-count peyote stitch.  It's from Lynn Davy's Midnight Garden Cuff pattern, which you can find here (and download for free if you're a member of Beading Daily):
I didn't have the sequins to decorate the bracelet like in her pattern, so it looks kinda plain:

And here's one of my favourite bracelets - Jann Christiansen from Dancing Sea Designs' Sealed with a Kiss bracelet:
 

The next one is a necklace that I made, a Victorian Lace pattern:
 

And the last one is Maria Tverdostup's Karmen Necklace:


These kinds of necklaces are a lot of fun to make, and not as difficult as it may seem! If you want some more patterns, visit Eagle Spirit's tutorials.

And then, yesterday I thought I had a cold, but today I think it's turned into a flu...*sniff*...
So, besides loading up on vitamins, here's what I do to make myself feel better...a bubble bath, some incense, a good horror novel and some chocolate:

So sorry, Monique, to hear that you have a flu... hope the bath, the horror book and the incense stick made you feel better.

I wanted to enter the linky party but have just got back from Singapore. Next time. By the way, what is the deadline?
