New Creations

I have finished a couple of new creations and I really like how they turned out.  My first on is called "Malibu", when I was designing it I wanted it to reflect waves of the ocean.  I love the way it turned out and the sparkle is really cool.

My next one I called "Jet" because the jet black twisted bugles are shiny ready for take off.

The last one is a necklace I called "Dreamers" I embroidered this on beautiful lambskin.  Really cool and chic look.

Spring...I hear you calling

I love nature and all the beauty it has to offer.  Summer is filled with water, fruit, and kids laughing.  Fall is beautiful with reds, oranges, and the smell of fireplaces in the air.  Winter has a special place in my heart because I love the look of the landscape with trees both bare and full side by side showing such amazing contrasts!  So inspiring.  But out of all the seasons Spring is my favorite!  Everything is coming alive and you can feel the energy.  Animals are having their babies, flowers are pushing their way to the sunshine, the once bare trees of winter are showing their beautiful glory for the spring sunshine.  Colors are bright and so full of life. 

I love to take pictures of the landscape and have them inspire my work.  Lets see what this spring will inspire me to create

I recently bought this really cool red cabochon.

Red one is the one I used for Carmen, the blue are "AM I BLUE"


Although I loved it I just couldn't figure out what to do with it.  Until I had the red cab sitting on my working mat and placed a crystal cab next to it and viola inspiration.  It reminded me of Carmen Miranda.  So I have finished the piece listed it and appropriately named it "Carmen"

Just for Fun

The other day I came across a great tutorial that looked so much fun.  Although it has nothing to do with jewelry I just had to try making flowers for my hair.  The link is  So last night I took some organza I had and went to it.  I decided to make my flowers a little bigger because I am just in love with big flowers in your hair (although I have not worn one every in my life but secretly want too) I put them on headbands since I didn't have hair clips.

Here is how they turned out and I think it was a success!!!! (Forgive the photography I was doing it on the fly)  I will post better pics later.

The Rainy Weekend

The rainy weekend gave me lots of time to be creative.  I started, took apart, re-started, and just plain gave up so of my ideas.  Out of all my creative frustration I made some very interesting pieces.  I also finished my entry to Etsy Beadweavers challenge for February.

The first few pictures are of my weekend creations. 

The next pics are from my entry to EBWC and it was inspired by the King and I.
