What's in your bag? Is the name of this challenge, we were to make a bag, any kind of bag as long as we used beads on the bag.
The ATTS 8 is being hosted by Therese Frank from :
and Christine Altmiller from :
Thank you so much for letting me be part of your A time to Stitch.
I must say that I love your challenges and I enjoy them imensely.

I made an amulet bag, I found the pattern on Pinterest. I love owls, so when I saw this pattern I knew it was going to be a bag.
This is what is looks on the back side of my amulet bag. I added a tassel on the bottom of the bag.

This bag I am not crazy about how the picture came out, it is a mini purse made from swarovski crystals in right angle wave.

This is what I made for this ATTS 8.
Please check out Therese's and Christine's blogs to see what the other beaders created for this challenge.
Thank you again for the  challenge.

Bangle Bracelet

This bracelet was an attempt on the Merry-go-Round Bangle by Csilla Csirmaz pattern in the April/May 2015 Beadwork Magazine.
I couldn't make it work like the magazine and so this is what I ended making after 5 tries.
It happens sometimes, I really like the bangle in the magazine, but I just couldn't get it to work.
I will wear this one anyway.

The pattern uses 15/0, 11/0, O beads, Superduos, 3mm, 4mm crystal bicones(I used Preciosa)and Silky Beads.
It was a little strange working with the Silky beads, because of their shape.
This pattern was very easy to make.

Zoisite Necklace

I bought this pendant long time ago, then I was at a bead store and I came across these beads, I knew it was a perfect match for my pendant.
A geology professor told me that the stones in my necklace had rubies in them. So I learned something new.
I have one more piece of zoisite, that I probably will make a bead embroidery pendant.
