Whenever I am feeling empty of new jewelry design ideas, I surf through my past work and can usually be inspired to either revamp or recreate something. Last night I went way back to 2008/2009. I have been wanting to recreate this Wheels Keep On Turning necklace for a while, and finally recreated it.
The basic layout is the same but the chain is different, and instead of using regular seed beads, I grabbed the peanut shaped seed beads, and put together a few short lengths of brass chain to make up the third strand.
The bracelet here is one that I created using some of Kelleys beautiful lampwork egg beads, some dangles of Turquoise, and a Copper metal Skull charm from Green Girl Studios. Last night I dug out a hoarded rabbit charm from GGS, and paired with some colorful lampwork from Loupiac, and brown leather cording. I was surprised to find one more little enameled metal flower to place by the focal!
Lately I have an addiction of all things Lilly Pilly, so I recreated this simple button and Shell pendant necklace (on the right) I used a large Lilly Pilly Donut shaped pendant, a shell button, and then two gorgeous handmade buttons from Chuck at Fire and Skill. I love the femininity of this piece, it's really lightweight and looks great dressed up or down.
These new pieces will end up on Etsy sometime today.
