DRAGONFLIES ON A SUNDAY AFTERNOON

I love the dragonfly pendant from Green Girl; it's really much prettier in person than in the pictures.
Components: Czech beads; LB chain, crystal opals and amazonite, GG pendant and charms; amber, crystal and darker amazonite that I had on hand.


Merry Month of May

I love the shine and glow of the beads; they look happy.
Components: Yellow glass beads, purple jasper and other beads all from Lima Beads. The focal amethyst and brown agate from my stash.


THE RAIN HAS GONE

Pretty green glass beads w/swirl are the inspiration. It reminds me of the colors after a summer rain when the sky starts to clear.
Components: Blue crystal beads and Czech beads from LB; lampworked lime green and blue beads from stash.


SUNNY DAYS AHEAD

The continuing desire to create summery light-heated pieces. I particularly love the amber and purple jasper together.
Components: LB Purple jasper, chain, TC silver beads; Czech beads and amber and the 2 large blue beads from my stash. I've had them so long I don't know what they are. Pendant created by sacrificing and old necklace and removing the flat orange disk.


SUMMER ROMANCE

I wanted to do something bright, summery and light-hearted.
Components: Nunn silver jump rings, TC silver beads, LB carnelian and Czech glass beads; amber and sodalite from stash.


NIGHT AT THE OSCARS

Love the Pave bead; I think this could be dressy or dressy casual and would go w/a lot of looks.
Components: LB pave bead, crystal, black beads and silver chain. TC silver-plated beads.


SIREN SONG

This is a necklace for a mermaid; I'm sure they wear them - I love the color - kind of a winey purple.
Components: LB Chain and Czech black beads and topaz, freshwater pearls.


JUNGLE HONEYMOON

Started out wanting to make something bright, and thought of a young couple I know who got married a year ago in Africa - hence the inspiration!
Components: (Another) Carnelian slab, faceted Carnelian, Jasper Rondelles, tiny gold beads from LB, PH copper Tree Spirit Charm; chain, ruby-dyed jade and different agates from my stash.


MAY VIOLETS

Bought the amethysts and amazonite at the same time; had no plans of using them together, but when I saw how they looked together - went together...
Components: Crystal opals and chain from LB. Amazonite and Amethysts from another source.


IF WISHES WERE HORSES

This is for a friend. I think this looks just a bit old fashioned and think that may suit. I've had the GG pendant for ages and finally put it to...
Components: TC silver beads, GG pendant, LB chrysocolla beads, Czech yellow beads and butterscotch beads; carnelian chunks and agate I had on hand.


MY FUNKY VALENTINE

I wanted to do something for Valentine's Day that was just a little bit funky; I'm not sure I'm done w/it yet; have to search out a black clasp I...
Components: GG Pewter Rose Pendant; LB black chain; a few Czech glass beads and some dyed jade from my stash. The purpose of the silver bead is to hide the crimp; I then added the dangle to keep the silver bead from moving up on the chain.


NIGHT TRAIN

This was a special request who wanted the labradorite beads in a choker. I love labradorite any which way I find it.
Components: Two different shades of labradorite, some from LB; silver beads from TC; rest from my stash.


Spring's Promise

This is the first appearance of flowers in the Spring - crocus, tulips, etc.
Components: LB Carnelian slab, silver beads, faceted carnelian beads and crystal opals. Had on hand amazonite and amethysts and lapis.


MOONGLOW

someone made a labradorite necklace a couple of months ago; there have been more since. It's always been a favorite, so I thought I'd have a go.
Components: Puff Lab, chain on hand. LB silver. Drop from LB crystal opal and some tiny crystals that I had.


BUDDHA

This was a request for a chunky Buddha necklace. As always w/me, it's all about the color. I used the colors from their flag for this.
Components: LB silver chain and beads, yellow glass beads, carnelian and jasper, opal crystal rondelles. I had on hand porcelain rust color beads agate from Tibet, red glass beads and denim lapis.


JANUARY BLUES

I got my inspiration from some of Ali's designs. I wanted to attempt something a bit funky. I made this for an artist friend who has edgy taste.
Components: LB teal Impression Jasper, Tagua Nut Violet Large Hole Rondelles and Metallic round leather cord. Also, I piled on chain that I had on hand and some large white resin beads. The end bead (face) is one I've had forever.


Night lights

I love these porcelain beads and the color combination.
Components: LB jasper rondelles, gold glass beads; porcelain beads and turquoise rondelles that I had on hand.


CARMEN

The pendant is the inspiration; I thought it was very pretty and different; I also found it very difficult to figure out how to display it.
Components: LB shell pearl, black horse eye chain; TC Antique silver bail; some silver beads I had on hand and of course the Earthenwood Pendnat. I'm not sure I'm really happy w/this. I'll have to sleep on it.


CARNELIAN SUNRISE

The Carnelian slab - almost pure white was the inspiration. Carnelian is one of my favorite stones - it's beautiful.
Components: LB Carnelian slab and stones, Czech beads, some jasper and some dyed jade I had on hand.


CHRISTMAS NIGHT

Chrysocolla nuggets from LB are the inspiration - such a beautiful shade of green - almost emerald at times.
Components: LB Chrysocolla nuggets, coral and TC Rhodiumclasp along with some rust-colored ceramic beads and a few silver beads I had on hand.
