Eye Candy Day

How about some eye candy?


I made this piece for Raida of Havana Beads -- you can read the story about it by clicking here.



Pretty, sparkly crystal earrings for Christmas and the holidays, ready and waiting in the Holiday Section of my web site (just click here!).


Not yet on the web site, a lush larimar, pearl, crystal, and silver charm bracelet, done in oxidized rather than bright silver for an antiqued look.  Larimar is a rare gemstone, and I sell out of it quite often at my shows.  It's called "Larimar Pearl Princess".


This bracelet, "Sari",  is also not yet on the web site.  It recently won third place in Jelveh Designs Beauty Contest, which was judged by Fire Mountain Gems.  It's made with Jelveh's lampwork beads, dyed potato chip-style pearls, and an AMAZING toggle clasp in sterling.


And finally, a sterling silver and gold-filled chain maille bracelet that is an instant classic and perfect for layering with other chains.  It's called "Double Love".


If you're interested in any of these pieces before I get them on the web site, email me!

Hope you enjoyed the candy!

  2. Wow - beautiful pieces. I love the bracelet with the copper - I seem to be changing over most of my wire work from silver to copper. I love it's warm look.

  16. These are all just gorgeous. I was trying to pick a favorite and gave up. I love them all. I do wonder how long all this would take to make. The chain maille alone would take forever, I imagine! --SallyA
