Brass Bracelet, Multi Strand Bracelet, Bronze Delights







This brass bracelet is made with brass metal parts which is super light weight.  I added two different sizes of faceted black agate beads and completed the multi strand bracelet with a silver box clasp.


Crystal Brooch, Swarovski Flower Brooch


This crystal brooch has been in my to-do box uncompleted for many months. 


  I was hit by the cleaning bug today morning and decided no more procrastinating and finally my Swarovski flower brooch  is completed.

The brooch is  constructed with Swarovski crystal bicones in shades of pink.
I named it Rosa as it means beauty ( in Spanish).
It really is a beauty, eh?

Blue Glass Cluster Bracelet, Blue Charm Bracelet




Intensely blue. The blue in this blue glass cluster bracelet reminds me of the color of the sea and sky; tranquil, calming yet it brightens up the mood - energizing!



The blue charm bracelet is secured with a round toggle and measures at  almost 7 inches.

Avatar

I know, i know - this is out of my topic but I just cant help it.  I took time off to watch Avatar by James Cameron with my son and it was totally mind-blowing.  He created another world another species of being with their own language and beliefs. The movie was awesome.  To quote my son " the best movie for 2009".  Go and watch it.  I am going to get the dvd and watch it again and maybe again.

Autumn Cross


I love the earth tone colours and this is one of my favourite pieces that I love to put on when the rest of my crystals dont "speak" to me.  Ever had one of those days?  I made this to complement my Autumn Bracelet and I am glad I made it as I had so many complementing on it.  A big smile on my heart.....

Tourmaline Bracelet



This tourmaline bracelet is from my collection of jewelry.

I have always loved tourmaline.  Its the beautiful rainbow of color from deep pink to light green.  It just invites you to touch it and marvel at its incredible color.  I had these chips from a reliable crystal supplier whom I have always visit when I needed to find an AAA quality crystal for my very personal collection.  A little pricey but always beautiful pieces that I cant resist.  
Mmmm....

My supplier told me that because tourmaline are normally traded by weight, the drill holes are usually made small to keep the carat weight up.  It is no wonder that I find it almost impossible to use them in  any bead woven patterns.

Red Swarovski Elements Bracelet, Flower Crystal Bracelet




Ideas, Ideas, Ideas but time, where have you gone?









All these gemstones waiting to be worn.  Cant wait to start on it. Ideas running around in my mind... now to have my time, my own time, to really have absolute time of my own to start on it. 

The Cross Collection




The fuchsia colored cross pendant is the only one available.

Love's Heart-Sold


The Pink Collection



These were made upon request from a friend who wanted a pink coloured pendant as a christmas gift.  I made several designs for her to choose.  She finally decided on the Valentine and I made a chain out of silvery seed beads to complete it.

Shan- Sold





Made 2 of these for a friend's young nieces christmas gift.  Hope they like it.

Metal Charm Bracelet, Charm Chain Bracelet, Hands & Feet To The Ball


I bought the Hi-Five hand charms and kept it aside for some time.  Finally saw the little bare feet charms and decided to pair them to make this metal charm bracelet.



 I added several 925 silver beads and butterfly toggle to finished the charm chain bracelet.


Was reading "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" (a fairy tale by The Grimm Brothers) to my little girl some night ago and the poor tired feet of the princesses after the ball came to  mind and hence the name of this piece - Hands & Feet to the Ball.
I know, i know - what a weird name... well, i am weird too.... cant help it...it is in the genes!!

Swarovski Pearl and Crystal Necklace, Harmony


This is a variation from A Pair of Rose Necklace, a Swarovski pearl and crystal necklace too.


  I used turquoise Swarovski bicones and crystal pearls matched with copper coloured seed beads for a "cooler" feel.


Ring Of The Dead



A little gothic for my taste but my daughter just loved it. 

Swarovski Elements Brooch, Cleo



This is my first brooch.

Elegant Bag-Sold



This could be used as a pendant or even for a key chain. I used swarovski bicones and silver beads for this cutesy bag.  It has a short and delicate silver link to hang from.
RM40
This include shipping and gift bag.

Sodalite Necklace, Blue Gemstone Bracelet, Midnight Tears




I finally got to steal time to use these Brazilian sodalite gemstone, which are handcut faceted freeform nuggets.  The lovely deep blue sodalite is accented with white streaks of calcite.
They were purchased from a lovely supplier, Marinacraft.

  I coupled them with silver spacers on a black leather cord for this blue gemstone necklace.  This sodalite necklace is short and can be used as a choker or with the extended chain it could be longer.

The dark blue of the sodalite nuggets reminded me of the darkness of the night and the shape of the nugget were teardrop-like; hence its name, Midnight Tears.

Vintage Influence





I like vintage style jewelry and since I cannot afford those beauties I decided to make one.  This necklace is fashioned  such and the colours faithfully reproduce to mimic that era.  Do you think I have succeeded?

Sweetheart - Sold



This was complemented with Heart of The Ocean Necklace.  It would be a great idea for Valentine's Day.

Draco



I love this dragon head pendant.  Dragon is an ancient mythical creature known for their potent power, mystery and luck and may all that wonderful traits befall on me when I put it on, eh?

A Long Week

This has been a long long week and have not been able to do any serious beading, except in my mind of course.  Recently purchased some gemstones and cant wait to really start on them.  Too many ideas too little time. I believed that is what many lovers of beading would chant out.  Any votes for that?
