I've been featured in an Etsy Treasury...

What is this, you may ask? Treasuries are a way for etsy members to put things together in a theme or a color.

This treasury happens to have lots of bright green and hot pink and one of my bracelets was featured. I think it is the first time I've been featured in a treasury, so it is quite nice!

What's New?

I'm working on revamping my Etsy shop, tweaking it really, to get it where I want it to be. It has been interesting to think of my shop in a new and different way, finding things that emphasize what my designs are all about. I'm still in the middle of this process, but will hopefully be done soon with a new look for my shop and this site as well.

Be sure to keep checking back often! :)

A special order!

This one is an anklet made to match some flip flops. It turned out really cute and very colorful! I love pink and green together. Anklets are fun in the summer with sandals and flip flops.

Another Black and White

I just love black and white!! It is so fun and goes with almost everything. So, I make quite a bit of it and I love how this one came out. The beads are square and diamond and are alternating on the bracelet. Very fun! I call it, "Zebra Squared".

I've been working on some new earrings lately. I have covered metal and wooden earrings with clay designs of my own. Hopefully they'll be stronger than thin earrings of clay alone. These are really cool and I just love the black, white, and silver mix.

Going on vacation...

I'll be gone for a few days soon, just wanted to let you know. I do have several new things in the works, but for some things I'm waiting on supplies, for others I'm waiting on time to work on them, and the others are still ideas floating around in my brain! Be sure to check back soon and often for new and interesting things I'm coming up with!!

Finishing something I started...

a long time ago. I've had these beads floating around for a while, had them strung, and then changed my mind and made the bracelet wrap around the wrist more times. It is a fun and rather funky look, but great color! I love hot pink and lime green and black and white are always classic. I named this one--"Do the Cha-Cha".

Big Black Horse and a Cherry Tree

Another new necklace--this time combining black and white with a cherry red faceted bead. So striking!! It is a gorgeous necklace and very eye-catching.

Mocha Latte

A calm and earthy bracelet of swirled black and taupe. Very soft colors, but interesting.

Another new necklace!

I've been on a roll lately getting some things together and this one was especially fun. I call it "Psychadelic"--a tribute to the 60's, I guess. I really don't care for the color orange, but I really like these beads I made and I think I found a good setting for them!

Needed to find a name for this necklace...and

I finally decided on one! It's called, "Don't Stop Believin". It is a really pretty necklace and I love the colors!!

A new Zebra!

This one is a square and diamond black and white swirl bracelet. So fun and so bright! I just love black and white and all the things you can do with it and of course, wear with it!!

New ideas, new designs

I want to try new designs and techniques so
that I learn new things. This is a new design for me--a charm bracelet with my beads, some glass, some agate, and some glitz. Fun and really pretty!

Another design in the works...

This one is a work in progress. I've been working on it today and it is coming together. I've still got some work to do on it and hopefully it will balance and look beautiful when it's complete!!

What I made with the beads...

to match the fabric! I've made a bracelet and I'm
working on another bracelet and a necklace as well. They are turning out really cool and the colors are great.

The black, lime green, yellow, and french blue are all swirled together and make a bold statement!
