This is a bracelet I made with Michelle McCarthy of FireflyDesignStudio’s wonderful ceramic bird and beads with a heavenly shade of blue glaze. I wanted a muted, soft look so kept close to the color tones of the beads with my other elements. I search out nature-related components for most of my jewelry.
This rustic seahorse ceramic pendant was made by Sherri Mallery of SlinginMud. It is glazed in turquoise and what I call a mustard shade. I used three strands of seed beads for the necklace as I wanted the tiny seahorse to shine. I love using ocean-related components in my jewelry and seek out artists who make these lovely little pieces of art. I’ve always done some sort of craft but I was totally hooked when I went to a beading store about five years ago. Maybe obsessed is a better word! I always have a story in my head when I’m working on something.
Lovely and brilliant slabs of enameled copper by Cathleen Zaring, they are accompanied by vintage hand made leaf bails with applied brass daisies up top are stones of smooth terracotta Jasper with brass rounds, daisy spacer, brass caps & ear wires.
This lovely medley includes a soft leather tassel with dragonfly tube bead, sterling silver spacers around a sponge Coral roundel and a spectacular lamp work glass focal made by none other than my good friend and artist Julie Wong Songtag of UgliBeads, referred to as, “Quilt Series”. It hangs from a sterling silver ring & side charms, above is an abundance of stones and Czech glass with Bali silver tubes. All is attached to strands of sterling silver chain with a lobster clasp and rustic charm drop. ♥♥♥Drop dead GORGEOUS♥♥♥
This gorgeous necklace features a handmade enameled copper focal, an enameled copper clasp and an enameled flower headpin.

It truly makes any girl feel like a princess.
