I love beading! :)

Why did I create the Blog, and YouTube Tutorials?

My parents have always taught me to share things with others. This is me sharing the talent of beading with all who are interested. I want to share this Talent I have learned with others, so they can learn too! I have it for display in hopes that I might be able to help and inspire others who are interested in beading! Because this way, others can make their own jewelry with out having to pay for it, and be proud that they did it themselves! :)
*Remember that people have their own ways of doing things, this is the way that I am comfortable beading.
** This is a hobby for me, it is something I do as a stress reliever and for fun.. all while putting my heart into it <3

Missy Mt. Turnbull Crown

This is my most recent creation, the Missy Mt. Turnbull Crown.. I made this in 2 days! And a total of like 21 hours. This crown stands 5 inches tall, and is about 22 inches long.. The people asked me to make it like on a Monday, and I didn't start on it til the Friday, procrastination is a Beast haha.. So don't do it.. But I am satisfied with thee outcome! :) The people didn't give me any specifics really, lol they let me loose on it with the designs, so I incorporated their new logo into it.. The Mt Turnbull Mountain, the sunset colors and the a bullrider. I did this because That is what the whole Mt. Turnbull days is about, the rodeo and the mountain, and Sunset colors are often used out there on the San Carlos Apache Nation. 
Well, Here it is :)
This is their new logo

This is the crown I made

Dawn's set

This is my sister Dawn's jewelry for her necklace.. It's not totally complete, but I thought I'd post it up :)
The style is 3 circles top is biggest, bottom is smallest.. I still got to edge this and make a choker for it, and then add some type of beaded fringe at the bottom.. 
Usually, there is a main color that is used, Dawn's is this orangish color..

Top Circle - 4 feathers, diamond and fire colors..

Middle Circle - This is my dad's band's symbol, of the Arivaipa Apache. 

Middle Circle- This is the diamond, and 4 sacred colors.. 

Earrings & Pin

My mom asked me to make something for her co-workers' birthday.... these are what I came up with...
