On a Roll


I'm on a roll this week! Last night I made a few more pieces for my shop. This first bracelet is a Summery take on the oak leaf focal from Humblebeads.   I knotted glass beads on waxed linen cording, added a fun orange enameled butterfly from Gardanne Beads, and a Squirrel charm from Kylie Parry and finished it off with a vintage button. Oak Tree Oasis!


Here is another take on a necklace design that was featured in Creative Jewelry magazine. Deep teal glass rounds, and matte gray farfalle beads make up the necklace. I wire wrapped a lampwork glass focal (Loupiac), lampwork flower (Gardanne beads) and Pewter bead cap (Green Girl Studios) with some dangling swarovski crystals as the pendant. Finished it off with a bronze toggle from Saki Silver.



And finally the Pod! I have had this pod for a while, from Round Rabbit Extra. I wire wrapped it with brass wire, and dangled some brass chain and attached several of Anne's enameled butterflies!  As if they are hatching right from this organic pod. Instead of making an elaborate necklace for this focal, I simply used some brown Fairy silk ribbon  for an extra airy and fantasy feel.

These will be available in my jewelry shop momentarily.
