InstructionsThese were made during a beading frenzy time when I just wanted to sit and play with beads. No two are alike. Just matched up the beads and started coordinating them-you know how it is.

photo charm[s], lampwork beads, ribbons, jewelry findings
What was your inspiration?
I just love beads like most of my craft addictions. I found a wonderful lot of lampwork beads at a flea market and just kept adding elements. I finally found the photo charms I wanted and added to some of them. I am big into custom photo gifts-to give and sell. My sister makes all kinds of beaded items and she gave me a lot of tips and advice.
What are you most proud of?
I love being able to give wonderful personalized gifts and these are some I have created for that reason. I will also be adding my beaded bookmarks. I don't think any two are alike. The photos are of several different necklaces.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I spent as much time playing and coordinating with the beads as putting them together.
