Home Sweet Home. I picked up this sweet floral pendant at Bead & Button from Golem Studios. I love the red flowers and thought I would add a cute ceramic house bead from Elukka, and some green Turquoise ovals and brass spacers. The little button has the sweetest bird on it. Love the simplicity of jewelry like this. It's unfussy and can be worn with anything.
This new necklace features one of Nancy's Firefly pendants. This was one of those totally random designs, where I just started grabbing whatever was on my desk in front of me. I added some of those large lucite hoops that I got in Maine at The Beadin' Path. They are large but work great in conjunction with the firefly.
The silk ribbon softens the whole piece up. I was playing around with photography and found that this piece can be work with any section at the front.
A simply and organic bracelet with agate nuggets and apatite nuggets. The bronze focal is from LeAnn of SummerStudiosEtc. I love the color palette in this piece. I wanted to add a charm by the clasp but couldn't find the perfect one so I went without one.
Here's a fun Bee bracelet with one of Nan's Spirited Earth ceramic connectors. Loving the variety of blues and greens. I knotted the beads on hunter green waxed linen cording. Added some ties of hemp cording for some extra texture on one side and some wire wrapped rondelles on the opposite side.
Got a few custom made hourglass shaped lampwork beads from Leah of Beads of Passion. I hammered some brass wire, and added some golden pyrite nuggets, and made large hammered loops at the top for some unique earrings. The denim blue does not photograph well but it is a gorgeous color in person.
I have made earrings like these before, but using some of Elaine Ray's coin shaped beads. This pair features some of her new striped rounds. The trick with these is getting the wires to be exactly the same. It's really tough! They turned out pretty cool though.
