My Mom's Birthday gift

My Mom's birthday is in June and she lives in North Texas with my Sister, Rose.  I did manage to get it to my Mom only one day late, which is really good for me! :)  As you can tell from my last few posts, I am really into beading right now.  My husband and I go garage saleing almost every weekend and I look for beaded jewelry and glass containers.  I take the jewelry apart and put the beads in the glass containers so that I can see what I have and it is pretty to see also. 

The wire shelves the bottles are on were purchased at Wal-Mart in the bathroom accessory dept.  I like it because it is tiered and you can see the bottles through it.

Sorry, I got sidetracked...My Mom's favorite color is purple, so as usual, her bracelet and earrings was made with purple pearl beads.  My favorite part of making jewelry is the individual bead dangles.  I just love the many combinations that can be made with beads of different sizes and texture and bead caps.

I was very fortunate to find a toggle set, at a bead shop in Houston, that has an "S" on both pieces, so my signature to show that I made the jewelry is to have my inititals "S.S." on the ends.  Although the beads have a blue tint, the beads are purple.
