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!!!
