Components: A basis silver chain. I got the flower caps on Etsy- they’re glass. Along with glass leaves. Swarovski 3 mm bicones. I think it would be a great maid of honor gift or some other sort of wedding gift ( for spring of course).
The button bouquet’s are always a sell out, so I make them every year. the other lucite beads are a new technique. I think you’ll be surprised!
Components: Button bouquets are 20 g. Wire and then floral wire wrapped over it the spoole are wrapped with ribbons. Lots of buttons and paper flowers and hot glue. The lucite beads are decopaghe using fancy little tea napkins- this was my first try on these.fun! Gold and silver findings

Components: The bracelets used turquoise oval stones that I bezeled using 11/0’s, and 15/0’s.the circles are 4mm pearls, 4 mm bicones, 3 mm firepolish beads an 15/0’s. I used a box clasp. The bracelet with the big 8 mm pearls, uses 4 mm pearls, 4 mm firepolish, 15/0’s. The lucite leaves I got on Etsy with an alcohol ink base. I added diamonds glaze and more glitter, and edging

Components: 8 mm white pearl. I used 11/0’s in a metallic green, gold and red, and an iridescent white. Clear fire line-6 lb.

The finished pendant is 1 inch- so it would make great earrings as well!
