Passion Necklace

I have been mulling this color scheme in my head for quite a while now, and yesterday I was finally able to get the idea out of my head and into reality. *grin* Rhodolite Garnets, Tanzanite, Iolite, Citrine, Cubic Zirconia and Lavender Amethyst bring out the wide spectrum of colors shimmering in this beautiful bead by Melissa Rediger of Sea of Glass.

Introducing the Passion Necklace:

Our family had a wonderful day today visiting friends, which we were able to do because hubby didn't have to work! Woohoo!!! LOL The girls were fantastic, praise the Lord! And each of us had a delightful time at the brunch. I am so grateful that the girls were so good as I was actually able to gab to my heart's content with my friends!! Our family needed the fellowship time with our good friends and we were able to catch up with some friends that we haven't seen in years! I hope those of you reading this are able to enjoy today and spend it doing something fun and refreshing!!

All year long, every order is gift boxed, no matter the occasion, in my signature hunter green boxes finished off with a gorgeous white ribbon. Every woman will feel special and cherished opening her gift of beautiful jewelry from one of my collections.

New Digital SLR Camera

The most frustrating issue of almost every jewelry designer who sells on the internet would be taking quality pictures of our creations. We can spend delightful hours filled with designing and creating the perfect piece of jewelry, but, then it comes time to take a picture of that piece, and the stress and frustration begins. Many of us jewelry designers are not professional photographers, so not only do we continue to improve our skills as artisans, we also have to improve our skills at photography. Who knew? LOL My first pictures two years ago were horrid. Only through two years of unwavering determination, and a handful of amazingly patient and giving friends and aquantences have I been able to achieve (what I think) are decent pictures of some of my pieces. But, due to limitations in my Canon Powershot model, I could not take completely clear and in focus pictures of my large chainmail pieces. As I discovered what my camera could do, I realized that there were a few things I would not be able to do and that I would ultimately need a DSLR camera. I never realized that the opportunity to buy my DSLR would come so quickly! I thought I had another year before that would happen! *grin* But, praise the Lord, the opportunity arose to buy one and I grabbed it!! After much research I decided on the Pentax K10D. Woohooo!!! I received the camera on Friday and have had very little time to play with it. But the few pictures I have been able to take...oooo...I'm already in loove with this camera. I know it can be a very frustrating process of learning how to properly use this camera, but, I am up for the challenge!! After the holiday rush is over I look forward to continuing to explore the vast abilities of this Pentax and I can't wait to capture better pictures of my pieces!

New Pieces Galore

The last several weeks have been crazy busy as I have been preparing for the holiday buying season and making several dozen new pieces.

I absolutely adore my Raspberry Delight set and I have created two more versions of this luscious set, Blackberry Delight (Black Spinel gemstone rondelles) and Snowberry Delight (Freshwater Pearl nuggets).
My Fireglow Necklace has been very popular, so I created two additional pieces with the same color combinations for variety. The Fireglow Earrings and Carnelian & Citrine Shaggy Loops Necklace.

I fell in love with these gorgeous Pink Amethyst faceted gemstone briolettes and they were begging to be paired in a spring combination, and I just could not resist adding a bit of springtime in with the rest of my new pieces.

One of my most popular sets, the Flip Flop earrings and matching bracelet needed an understated necklace to be paired with.

I'm in another Etsy Treasury!

New Twisted Circles and Cascade Pieces

Here are two of my newest sets of pieces:

Green Amethyst Twisted Circles Necklace & Earrings

and Iolite Phrenite Cascade Necklace & Earrings

The Green Amethyst Twisted Circles set features some of my favorite things, green gemstone beads (can I ever have enough green gemstones?? *grin*) and twisted jumprings. I love making twisted jumprings and enjoy using them in my pieces as they lend a delicate flair to a simple piece giving it an entirely new look.

The Iolite Phrenite Cascade set is very special to me for the simple reason that one of my good friends and fellow designers, Rhonda Reagan of Stunning Details inspired these Cascades. Rhonda is a dear friend and a fantastic designer.

Both sets are, of course, for sale on my website.

Thank you Crystal!!

I am so excited about a recent blog post by one of my friends, Crystal of 2 Belles & a Bead. In her Blog Post she talks about our recent Art Piece Swap from the Cagey Crafters forum of which we both belong. Crystal was my Art Swap person to whom I mailed 2 lengths each of Jen's Pind and Flat Queen's Link chainmail. As you can read from her Blog Post, she is absolutely thrilled about the pieces. Thank you so much Crystal for such an awesome write-up!

Stepping Stones Collection

I recently worked on a series of pieces entitled "Stepping Stones." The pendants consist of short lengths of a chainmail weave called "staggered corduroy." Three large handmade sterling silver rings intersected by smaller silver rings stepping upon each other with various selections of gemstones woven into the larger rings.

This first piece feature Grade AAA Garnet rondelles:

This pendant contains Iolite and Freshwater Pearls:

And this third piece pairs Smoky Quartz and Pink Topaz:

I also created two additional color combinations that are on my website, Shaded Hessonite Garnets and Freshwater Pearls. Several of the pendants have delicate earrings to match, an example is seen here:

Additional color combinations are available of course. Feel free to email me for custom work.
