Designs by A Little Pizzaz aka Judy


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


The Carnelian slab - almost pure white was the inspiration. Carnelian is one of my favorite stones - it's beautiful.

Chrysocolla nuggets from LB are the inspiration - such a beautiful shade of green - almost emerald at times.

Friends have asked that I make some chokers, so here is the first. I love blue and purple together.

All the colors appealed to me. The pendant is large - initially I was going to do something long, and then decided on short and sweet.
Components: Foil Glass pendant, Russian Amazonite, Czech glass flowers, tiny silver beads and TC silver bail. The little Czech flowers that I ended the strands with look very like one of the flowers in the pendant.
