Triangular opulence
By Anu Rao
Create the look of fine jewelry with metallic triangle beads and glittering crystal drops. So often in bead weaving, the holes of our beads face away from the viewer. The unique orientation of the triangle beads in this necklace-and-earring set makes the most of the triangle shape and open up a whole other world of jewelry design.

Crazy for chrysanthemums
By Virginia Blakelock

Attach the embellished honeycomb to a filigree ring finding, and surround it with leafy fronds and short fringe for a spectacular ring.
