working on wednesdays

i can't stop using glass beads! all the beautiful colours, their size, the endless possibilities! i'm drowning in glass beads and totally enjoying the ride. this week, i've put down the thread and needle to explore some traditional french beading and basic wire work techniques. however, not having a bead spinner is making this a very long process, lol! here are two designs that i'm working with for earrings. let me know what you think.
