Pink and green, but not preppy

For Angela

A commission for a friend, who liked only part of another necklace I made :).

Garden party pearls

The focal was a bead I made, but the hole was a little off-center, so I had the worst time figuring out how to use it. I finally came up with this...

A different bracelet

Sometimes, you just got to experiment. This was the result of playing with hemp cord and gorgeous imperial jasper nuggets. the cord makes a toggle...

My first craft show display

This was outside, and there a few booths behind me, so it's hard to see, but my first attempt. The large display in the middle was a last minute...


Not your average pearls... and a question

Here's my question: I got an invite to do a small craft show -- it would be my first, so I'm excited and a bit clueless. How much "stock" do I...

A few more earrings

Once I started with this concept, it was hard to stop! All silver or silver plate, with garnet, glass tube beads or chrysocolla


jasper and copper chain, 2 versions

I do love autumn

I've had the jasper donut for a while, but didn't know what to do with it. then I got the apatite and tourmaline chips, and it was perfect! of...

Fortune teller

Found this pendant at a fleamarket, bought it with two others from the woman who made them. Found the beads at the fleamarket. I think they're...

Glass hanging doohickey
