The Meaning Behind the Name...

Bug's Beads seems like an unusual name...and it is. Bug was my nickname my parents gave me as a baby. "Cute as a bug"- and the name has stuck ever since. :-)

Winter/Christmas Black, Green and Cream Necklace

I originally made this pattern into a bracelet for a friend and then decided it would make an excellent necklace for the "green" enthusiast. 

Made in a catching pattern of "fat" cream seed beads with a delightful glimmering finish to them, black oval beads for a different size dimension and green solid rounds, the necklace has an earthy tone that could be worn during this holiday season and then on to really any other occasion.

Made in 17 inches long from clasp to clasp, I would suggest that you measure your favorite necklace to see if this ones falls within those parameters. If you would like it made shorter or longer, that will not be a problem, just convo me for details!

Red and Black Crystal with Cream Pearl Christmas Necklace

The minute this necklace was created I knew I loved and just barely stopped myself from grabbing it for myself! Made with Swarovski element pearls in 4mm cream and Swarovski 4mm rich black and red make a striking combination. Rich in tones and light elements it draws the eye and captures the attention. A string of pearls that is more than just pearls that any woman would want to hang around her neck.

The necklace measures 18 inches clasp and clasp, but I would strongly suggest that you measure your favorite necklace to know if this length would satisfy you. If you would like the necklace adjusted please let me know before ordering, if significant length needs to be added additional cost might be necessary.

I LOVE this necklace...and hope you will as well. But hurry soon...I might snag it for my own collection. ;-)

Cream Swarovski Pearls with Silver Tubing Spacers Necklace

I made this necklace and then sighed in delight at the results. Absolutely stunning in person. Swarovski pearls in 4 and 6mm sizes give off a lovely accent to the silver beaded tubes that glimmer when they hit light. It's an understated necklace made to hit about mid-chest level to wear with a business suit, pair with a out-on-the-town shopping spree or perfect for the bridesmaid party or understated bride. 

It truly is (if the designer is allowed to say so) simply gorgeous!

Measures 20 inches from clasp to clasp with durable accu-flex wire. Necklace will come in organza bag for easy gift giving!

Earrings featured are made with silver-plated brass earwire--made to hook in the back of the earlobe so as to avoid loss.
