Gifts For Friends And Some Beadworks

I'm wrapping up my May finishes with some gifts for friends. I'm actually way way way behind with these stuffs and I was sure glad when I had the chance to finally make them. Hopefully I'll be able to drop them in the mail today, or to be safe, within this week.

Bracelets made of glass pearls, AB crystals,
charms, and swarovski crystals
Techniques: Stringing, Peyote, and Off-loom Weaving
These last couple of days, I've been busy stitching MA's as I want to send them of to my partners by June, though due dates are July and August. Once all my current MA commitments are done, I might have to take a break from signing-up so I can focus on my other WIP stitching.
If things will go according to plan, I'm hoping that my entire month of July will be devoted to my State Fair entries. The new categories I'm positive of submitting is "Creative Arts and Crafts", for beadworks & paper crafts divisions. For beadworks, I'm leaning towards "needle constructed jewelries" and "stringing" classes. For paper crafts, I'm hoping I can come up with great ideas on photo scrapbook pages for 4 classes.
And lastly, I gave my Pearly Shell pendant a new look by replacing the necklace chain. The beaded beads were made of mahogany mix seed beads using peyote stitch. For a little sparkle, I also added little swarovski crystals on the antique gold spacers. I also made a matching bracelets, and probably I'll complete the set with a pair of earrings.
