    These are fantastic Asia! I saw the button one on Etsy yesterday and was blown away. You have taken these riveted leather bracelets to the next level.
    I have a bunch of the Golem Studio lentils and am so stealing your idea of using them with the leather.

  • SquirrelGirl aka Angela commented on the Design “Colors of Amazonite”   2 months ago

    These are gorgeous Nancy! I’m partial to the first one with the onyx focal bead. I also choose a focal bead that has a larger hole so that the knot will fit. I have one other trick I use. I put a dab of jewelers glue on the knot and slide it inside the bead while [...]

    Thanks Deb, I’ve used those 2hole beads like that in a few bracelets lately. I like the look of a strand of chain but with additional color.

    Thank you for asking Deb. I’m taking it day by day, some are good, some are bad, but I’m hanging in there. I’ve done a couple of craft shows this [...]

    Thank you all so much! I just loved the pattern and especially colors in this Golem bead. It was all the inspiration behind this one.

    I want this one, it’s totally gorgeous and totally me! What a perfect combo of beads, colors and patten you’ve created. I agree that the planning out of a design like this would make my brain hurt.

  • SquirrelGirl aka Angela commented on the Design “Dirty Blues”   2 months, 1 week ago

    You have taken lemons and made uber scrumpscious lemon souffle! First, your design is fantastic and can be worn with a dressy outfit or jeans and a blouse equally well. Second, I love how you paired the lapis and pyrite with antique brass for a subdued look, but gave it a lovely flash with those crystals! [...]

    This is so stunning Lynda! Your focal is absolutely beautiful and as Monica said the details you’ve incorporated are the icing on the cake. I finally got the supplies for etching and can’t wait to get started. I can only hope to get to your level of creativity and expertise one day.
