Beading Friends Forever ~ April Challenge (Part 1)

Hi Everyone
Hope you are all well and had a lovely Easter weekend :-)  I was back to work today but only for one day because i've got a few days off and not back until next Tuesday.  Saying that it's the schools hols so no doubt I will be kept busy!!!
I am still loving my new hobby so when I popped across to the Beading Friends Forever blog yesterday I was thrilled to see I was the lucky winner for March and my prize is £15 to spend at Beads Direct :-)
Here is my entry for Part 1 of April's challenge which is to make a jewellery set.
For the bracelet I used the Hugs & Kisses tutorial from Andycraft Beads and the earrings were a free tutorial from Around the Beading Table called Trinket Earrings

* Items Used *
4 mm & 6 mm Fire Polished Czech glass beads ~ Capri Blue
4mm crystal bicones
11/0 Gold seed beeds
Gold plated clasp and earring wires
The 2nd part of the challenge is a Kumihimo tutorial.  Well I must have had a premonition because I had ordered a Kumihimo set at the weekend prior to the new challenge being announced.  Not sure I will be able to do it but can't wait to have a go!!
