Jewelry all the time

I've been having fun making more jewelry. I haven't done this in a while, so I'm a little rusty, but it's been interesting seeing which beads I reach for now. I think there's a weird subconscious thing with beaders; whichever bead is your current favorite, that's what ends up in your designs.

I've been making a lot of chain-based jewelry right now.

Usually I make strung jewelry, generally like this:

I like both for different reasons. Chain allows a piece to move more freely, but it also twists more easily and sometimes bunches up while being worn, which bothers me. There are always pros and cons with every kind of jewelry design...
