Can't knock this beader down

I created some new jewelry on Sunday night and had intentions of getting them photographed and listed on Monday. But then I got this awful stomach
bug, a 24 hour thing that kept me in bed all day. Dang it.
Still not sure what that came from, I thought maybe food poisoning but I'm
not really sure. Especially since I had a fever all day too.
Today I am better. WHEW.

This first necklace features a Marsha Neal Studio ceramic floral pendant
in a beautiful chocolate brown, paired with bright pink. Wood two-tone rondelles,
fuschia dyed aventurine, and faceted aqua jade rounds.


This chunky bracelet features lampwork from Kelley Wenzel, and Cindy Gimbrone,
with large copper hollow beads and a faceted Amethyst nugget, glass, and filigree beads. Hammered toggle from AD Adornments.

I like how this Wisdom necklace turned out. Ceramic Wisdom heart focal from Diane Hawkey,
Wood briolettes, cream recycled glass, turquoise rondelles, wood cubes, and bone tubes. The handmade ceramic toggle is from Every Heart Crafts.


Colorful beaded bracelet with brown waxed linen cording, a Pewter heart focal from
Green Girl Studios, ceramic coin bead from Jubilee, glass, ruby quartz, fuschia briolette, amazonite, and Bali glass rounds. Silver



These dangly earrings feature cool handmade skull charms that I got from Andrew Thornton.
I paired them with pretty keishi pearls, faceted glass, and taupe colored Swarovski Crystal
ring beads from


Sweet Chicadee earrings with Marsha Neal Studio image transferred charms,
and bumply beads from Pinocean.


And these cuties are fun and colorful too, with Candice Wakumoto charms,
brown waxed linen cord, jade, ruby quartz, and glass in bright tones.

I also have a few new pieces going into My Mom Pattie's shop on Etsy.
