Guess What???

I don't have anything else to say!!!!



Earrings with Rings & Things Rondelles

I just finished creating some earrings in the fringe style I work with using the cool new rondelles I purchased on Rings & Things.  I bought the crystal clear and purple (haven't used the purple yet) - here are my results:


You can see the rondelles on the far right side and on the bottom left.  I just love the way they look!

Just playing with resin

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002IKLJU0/ref=oss_productI was playing with resin last night for the first time.  Here are the results.  They are okay, I've got a way to go before I am happy with them:






The boxes are pendants. Trying to figure out what to do with them.

But I do have a cool new camera!  I love it. I've never had such a fancy camera before but I am learning how to use it.

I Know What I Know...

And what I know is Swarovski. Ever since I started making jewelry I've used one type of Swarovski bead or another in my work.  As I recently returned to the world of jewelry design, I have fallen back in love with the Swarovski offerings. Some of my favorite beads I have used recently (by the way, I don't get paid for this, I have purchased these with my own money) are:

From Artbeads.com:

1) Swarovski 3700 10mm Margarita Bead Crystal Transmission V

AND

From Beadaholique.com


2) Swarovski Crystal #3700 10mm Flower Margarita Beads Amethyst AB

Fringe: What I Love

I create what I like to call fringe jewelry.  It may remind you of beading on the hem of a gown.  Take a look:





This is my passion.  I'll be sharing my favorite beads, tools, new ideas, etc in this space.  Stay tuned!
