A very big thank to Sarah for hosting this wonderful hop.

This hop is about making whatever you want, but you must use some sequins.
I made a bead embroidery bracelet using sequins, seed beads and in the center I used buttons.

This is my first resin piece, I made a pendant with Swarovski sequins and regular sequins. I need a lot of practice.

I hope you have a chance to check Sarah Sequins blog.

This bracelet is called Lilac Lace and the designer is Yasmin Sarfati, this pattern is from the Beadwork Magazine Feb/March 2013.
I used cream color glass pearls(Hobby Lobby), brown crystals from JJ Beads and gold seed beads.

This necklace is made with crystals and freshwater pearls and the pendant is a pattern from Jenny Van, called Crystal Passion.

This last necklace is made of freshwater pearls and they are drilled on the top so when strung they are alternate, one on one side, the next on the other side. Those are also from JJ beads.
