Jewelry for a change!

All this book stuff all week, I kind of miss showing off jewelry!! Don't worry, I'll be back again around 11 to announce yesterday's book winner.  I got into the studio yesterday and made a few pieces. I have a love affair going with chain/metal.

Look at these delicious enameled discs from Anne at Gardanne Beads. I just ordered some more of these from Anne's shop this morning. I love how they look in these earrings. I could keep these easily, for myself.

I pulled out my copper rollo chain from Rings N Things, and created this triple stranded necklace using some of Kelley Wenzel's glass rings that she had sent me. I like the fun and colorful outcome of this necklace. The 3 strands, and 3 beads, has that whole THREE'S thing going for it.

I adore how this last necklace turned out. I layered one of Kristie's Artisan Clay textured donuts, with an old vintage brass coin also from Rings & Things! Wire wrapped with brass wire, and hanging from Vintaj brass rollo chain and then some large Vintaj cable chain. I added some wire wrapped sections of cornerless cubes and teal wood rounds. (hard to see in this pic)

Update... I leave tomorrow for Florida for work. I'll be gone til Thursday evening. I will keep my shop open, and will ship any purchases when I get back on Friday.  I will have my laptop and will continually obsessively check my email like always so you can also stay in touch while I'm away. It's such a lonely trip by myself, so please come and hang out with me on Facebook in the evenings, keep me company!!!

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
