These are the two bracelets I made today and gave to my mum for mothers day
The green one is lovely and chunky, i was inspired by a lovely chunky green jumper I know she weara, and the beads came from a CB rak.
The other is dainty and on memory wire and thought she could wear in the summer without it being too much/too heavy. Also knows she wears quite a bit of blue.

Last night and this morning I have been playing and recycling some old makes that I either didn't like or changed my mind about.
1st pic is a pair of earring I made from a handbag charm I received in a CB swap. I had the handbag charm on my bag for ages when I noticed one day part of it had gone. I was gutted as I adore the charm and the beads are beautiful. However I did notice that the bits left would make fab earrings so happily made them up this morning. Just hope the prson who originally made it approves.
2nd pic The black star fish pendant (which glows in the dark) I adore but hated the original chain it was on because it irritated my skin so I have kept in plain by threading on a black ribbon and black plush cord.
3rd/4th pic is a haematite bracelet and earring set which I recycled from an earlir make I only owre once. Again siplicity is they key here as I adore haematite and wanted some pieces I could wear anytime. Very very happy with these.

I nearly forgot oabout this challenge until about 7pm this evening when I started on these two makes. Cant't make up my mind which to enter so am showing them both.
The bracelet is for a friend (hope she likes) and the earrings are for me. I wanted some nice and simple drop earrings and ave wanted to use these beads for a little while as love the colour ('fraid pic doesn't do it justice).
EDIT: New and better pics added
