BLUEBIRD ~ LYNN CARLING

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.

It’s accented by Czech glass lentil beads that are attached together by hand with jump rings. A strand of ruby colored Czech glass rounds strung on waxed linen finishes off this beauty. It truly makes any girl feel like a princess.
