Custom Piece

Hey There!


Here's a look at a custom piece of jewelry I recently made. It's a cute little right angle weave bracelet with a basic helix pattern and central rosettes.


The design is done with 4mm, 6mm and 8mm fire polished crystals in amethyst and rose. It's a real girly-girl number and came out better than I expected. These are so much fun to make, I'm doing a couple more, so stay tuned!

Hi There!

Okay, I've done another treasury with a fall theme. Take a look and tell me what you think. It includes some of my favorites Etsy items and artists and of course, jewelry. Check it out at http://www.etsy.com/treasury/4c890030f5ba8eef3377ec77/orange-you-glad-its-fall?index=0.

Love that orange!

Enjoy!

My First Treasury

I'm starting to get into the Etsy swing. I created my first treasury a little while ago and thought I'd share it here. Yes, I know it's "colorful" that's what i like about it. It's color IN YOUR FACE!  :-)

Take a look here http://www.etsy.com/treasury/4c5dcbe0752e8eef349ec0db/colors-textures?index=1

Boy was that fun!

Here's a Site I love! How about you?

Being part of the Etsy community is starting to be fun. I've not really used the Internet as anything but a research tool and a way to make a living, not much on the social aspects. I'm a telephone girl myself, just love to talk to people!

But I found a great website not too long ago and I wanted to share with you, it's called Serelynda's Enchantment. Her items are really gorgeous.

I love jewelry that makes a statement and her designs are very filigreed and and fabulous. Take a look and see for yourself! She's at http://www.etsy.com/shop/Serrelynda?page=1

Let me know what you think!

I'm Still Here!

Sorry to have been away for so long, but life does it's thing!

Anyway I've been hard at work creating new designs. I've been experimenting a bit more with beadweaving since Christmas. I've done a few things with square stitch. Check it out below:



This piece is made with 4mm pink rhodonite cubes, some lovely cream soda seed beads and AB montees. I had the square magnetic clasp and thought they worked well together. What do you think?
