Pearl Bookmark, Jingle Bells, SOLD

Oops, I forgot about this "When Christmas Comes"  series bookmark...

This brass bookmark has gold colored bells, giving them a nice tinkling sound with every movement.  Hence, the name for it - Jingle Bells.
This is a very colorful bookmark, a very merry Christmas bookmark. I used burgundy red, deep velvet purple, lemon gold and beautiful teal shining faux pearls.  Contrasting colorful miyuki seed beads were added to make the colors really pop.  

Come check out the other  "When Christmas Comes" bookmarks at my Etsy shop.

Fishy Anyone?

I just finished this colorful fish using miyuki seed beads.  This is for my next bookmark project - "The Fish Fry Club".  I love the shape of the fish. I think the color is fine though I should have given Chloe (yes, that's her name) a silvery eye. Unfortunately, I found out that the fish looks too heavy for the bookmark.  Yup, as usual, I overfed the fish....  I needed to make a slimmer fish....and so here is Neemo...

The colors were inspired by the clown fish,  Marlin and Nemo, of Disney's 'Finding Nemo'.  

What do you think? Give me some feedback, please. 

What do you think about the color?  The shape?  Would it look good as a bookmark?  Or can I make this into a pendant? A pair of earrings?  Let me know, okay....

Pearl Bookmark, Snow Angel

The last Christmas bookmark for the "When Christmas Comes" series....

This is a real girly girl bookmark...the sweet bright pink octagonal beads really bring out the blue in the feather bookmark.  I added some silver metal charms; a tiny heart for love, a bell for Christmas, a swirly swirl for snowflakes and two little angels, to add texture and more shine to the silver tone bookmark.  I just love this color combination - white luscious pearls, blue speckled beads like snow  falling in the snow globe and the sweet pink beads....

It is now in my Etsy shop, and I shipped worldwide.

Pearl Bookmark, Sweet Season

"When Christmas Comes" Series

I wanted warm and love in this Christmas theme.  I chose pink and gold and from there it was easy providing a story to the pretty bookmark.

Soft sweet pink and ash blue grey pearls mingled together with white acrylic oval beads in this Christmas bookmark.  I added gold-plated metal charms for texture and rose gold metal beads for a little glint and glimmer in this pearl bookmark.

Purple and White Pearl Bookmark, Book Accessory, Purple Drops

This purple and white bookmark is also part of the "When Christmas Comes" series.

I used white and deep dark purple faux pearls, mauve Swarovski Elements crystal pearl, and pearly pink purple Czech beads. The silver-plated filigree cone drops adds shine and glimmer to the bookmark.  I added a silver-plated Christmas tree charm to complete the Christmas theme.

This would make a perfect book accessory gift for the bookworm. 

Colorful Pearl Bookmark, Pearly

Christmas is coming!!!

So I am making a series of bookmarks inspired by Christmas - "When Christmas Comes".  I love the amazing display of Christmas tree with their beautiful sparkling ornaments found on display in the shop now.

Pearly is the first colorful pearl bookmark in Christmas colors.  I love the combination of sweet pink, deep dark purple, burgundy red, ash blue grey pearls and white alabaster faceted chinese crystal in this bookmark. Fanciful and sweet.

I have just listed it in my Etsy shop.  

Clear Glass Bead Bracelet, Clear Bracelet, Crystal Pave

An elegant and classic clear glass bead bracelet that sparkles with style.  

Stunning glass bead strung with a crystal pave bead and an antiqued silver-plated Bali-style metal bead.    The clear glass bead gives the impression of this bead bracelet is made from little cubes of ice. 

 I finished it with a silver-plated gourd shaped toggle clasp.  A silver-plated heart charm and another beaded dangle  completes this crystal pave bracelet.

This clear bracelet is now listed at my Etsy shop.

Blue Leaf Charm Bracelet, Wire Wrapped Bracelet

I started this blue leaf charm bracelet a couple of months ago but I just was not satisfied on how it look until now. 

 What do you think?

I wire wrapped some picture jasper beads with red malachite gemstones along with the honey aqua porcelain leaf charm and added a dainty brass flower dangle beside it.  On the other side of the leaf charm, I wire wrapped amethyst opal Czech rondelles and linked them to hematite rings.  I finished it with a round brass-plated toggle clasp and added a dainty purple flower and green aventurine bead dangle to the square brass Friends Flower charm.

Doll Charm Bookmark, Eve

Eve is third in the Sugar and Spice Series.  She is the 'Rock' - solid and steady, calm and sensible.

Eve is 'created' using a frosted yellow 5 petal acrylic flower, which I wire wrapped together with a twisted Czech bead of yellow-greenish-brown bead and a beautiful amber brown lampwork bead with, Eve, a happy polymer clay girl charm with a pretty brown flower dress hanging at the end of it. To complement Eve's color, I used a copper-plated bookmark with engraved flowers.

Silver Tube Bracelet, Teal Bracelet, Gemstone Wrap Bracelet, Aella

This silver tube bracelet features hand-cut natural teal apatite rondelles with fuchsia Swarovski Elements' crystal strung together with potato pearls and silver curved tubes. A silver-plated heart charm with LOVE inscribed on it dangles from one of the curved tubes and I finished this teal bracelet with a decorative silver-plated heart toggle clasp.

I bought the graduated hand-cut faceted teal apatite and the  LOVE heart charm from Fire Mountain Gem & Beads.

You can find this gemstone wrap bracelet here.

Green Doll Bookmark, Lily

 This is Lily - the second in the Sugar and Spice series.
She is my sweet, kind, generous and bubbly girl.

I chose sweet and soothing pastel colors to match the smiling green dress polymer clay girl charm. I wire wrapped lustrous Swarovski Elements' crystal pearls in green and purple to match the frosted purple acrylic flower and Czech oval glass bead of pale pink and green. The pastel pink and purple bells gives a sweet tinkling sound with every movement and I connected it to a silver feather bookmark.

A blushing lilac
unaware of dawning day
dreaming of first love....

Blue Crystal Bookmark, Mermaid Bookmark, Eriko

I would be a mermaid fair
I would sing to myself the whole of the day
With a comb of pearl I would comb my hair
And still as I combed I would sing and say
"Who is it loves me? Who loves me not?"

Pearl and Gemstone Bracelet, Custom Order, Norah

This was a custom order to re-style this bracelet that has been in my friend's jewelry box for many years; left unworn and forgotten until her recent spring cleaning of her jewelry collection.

I love the dark gold, white and the green combination of the double strand bracelet.
 It is a reminiscent of  the falling leaves of autumn.  

I have to admit re-doing a bracelet using beads that was not of my choice was not an easy matter as I thought it would be but .......

after much tweaking......VIOLA!!!!

I added an acrylic flower which has a dark gold finished as the focal point and started re-arranging the beads  around it.  The multiple materials in warm hues creates a pearl and gemstone bracelet full of texture and colors.

Materials used : 
citrine chips, freshwater pearls in green, dark gold and white, 
an acrylic flower finished, a brass-plated s-hook clasp.

I am happy to say that she LOVED it!!!!

Amethyst Bracelet, Wire Wrapped Bracelet, Custom Order, Sze May

This amethyst bracelet  was a stretchy bracelet of amethyst and clear quartz rondelles.
A custom order to re-vamp an old bracelet.

I added a large nugget of african amethyst from my personal stash as a focal bead.  For color, I added some Swarovski Elements golden shadow rondelles and topaz faceted rounds.  I did some "filigree" wirework on the topaz for texture and drama.  

All in all, the wire wrapped bracelet had the vintage-like look and color that I was aiming for.

She is in love with the bracelet and will be giving me more of her old jewelry to re-style!!!!
Yeah!!! Nothing beats a happy and satisfied customer.
