    This is so cute and colorful! It’s the perfect summer bracelet. I’m always looking for more ways to incorporate leather into my designs. Thanks for the awesome tut!

    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.

  • SquirrelGirl aka Angela commented on the Design “Triple Turquoise”   1 week, 1 day ago

    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”   1 week, 1 day 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! [...]

    I love the rustic, earthy goodness of these! All of your fantastic designs incorporating Petras beads have got me addicted too! I think I’ll have to check out her shop.

    Wow Asia, I love this! You always have such unique design ideas that really tie all of your elements together wonderfully. The braided silk and beaded chain is inspired and perfectly compliments that awesome Golom pendant. Fabulous! Your earrings are also super cool!

  • SquirrelGirl aka Angela commented on the Design “New Focus”   1 week, 1 day ago

    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.

    Beautiful earrings Monica! Thank you so much for your tutorial on the etching process. I really appreciate all of your tips and tricks. I’ve been SO wanting to try this and with this great info I think I finally will.

  • SquirrelGirl aka Angela commented on the Design “Color Block March Birthday”   1 month ago

    Love the necklace, the pillowcase shirt and Charlie! I’ve got some aquamarine nuggets and rounds from LB, all of which I love and use it quite a bit. But I really like light blue. I got some Golem lentils like yours at the gem show but they have light blue flowers. Hmmm… idea?

  • SquirrelGirl aka Angela commented on the Design “little buds on the tree bracelet”   1 month ago

    Lovely! All of the elements you used work perfectly together. I agree with Monica, I could eat those green agates!
