I do quite a bit of beading in my free time. It relaxes me, I love to play with the beads, and I end up with lots of jewelry.
Sometimes, after I work up a pattern, I'll send a picture to the designer just in case they want to see how it came out. I don't always do everything exactly as they recommend in the pattern, so I feel they might want to see how my version turned out. This is what I did after I worked up City Lights, a bracelet by a designer named Juanita, who does business under the name Jaycee Patterns.
I was just wandering around the net the other day and I went to her blog to see some of her new designs, and what do you know? There was my bracelet! Even has my name on it.

If you like jewelry or beads, you should look around at the rest of her blog. She makes some really nice designs.
