I have been guilty of blogging and not beading, so sitting down and knocking out a few pieces tonight felt really good. I took a few pictures, sorry they are a bit dark but I hung the necklaces on Roberta (my mannequin) and took my pictures next to a lamp with no further preparation or fuss. Will need to do better when I list these in my shop.
This is all citrine chips and onyx. There are small onyx rounds as well as larger faceted ones.
I like the yellow and black, the round beads next to the free form chips.
I love tourmaline and simplicity. This is very simple with tourmaline ovals in 2 sizes, small crystal beads as well as glass pearls and small silver rounds.
Pinks and greens are the main colors.
Silver is fast becoming a focal point in some of my jewelry, and this necklace has a wonderful handcrafted sterling silver flower as it's center piece. I love it! The beads are green aventurine and Swarovski crystals with silver bead caps and small silver rounds.
There are also some great handmade sterling silver woven box beads that are really gorgeous in their own right.
Hopefully I will get these listed in my shop soon, as well as continuing to make new pieces. Christmas is coming and to someone like me that means preparing not only to buy gifts - but to sell them as well!!
