I am back! We have been busy working on the garage and we have company so I do not get to my computer work as easily! At least we are making some headway on getting rid of some of the junk and making Don a spot to work in.
I have attached some more of my jewelry creations for you to see what else I have been up to. The teal one is the back side of the twisted groups that I have been creating. The rope is a lot of work and very time consuming. I just guess I get bored with repetitious work and like to be challenged.
I loved making the pink and teal bracelets! They are so very Victorian and I closed them both with antique buttons of my Moms. The pink earrings are made with four crystals wrapped in rose colored beads. It is always great when I wear them and people comment about them. I have sold several of my things and it is always so very hard for me to part with them. My daughter, Melissa sold three pieces and I about cried. I needed the money BUT I don't know if it is worth the pain I go through when a piece is sold.
This "Pearl Twist" matches the bridal necklace that is displayed. It is so very pretty in the daylight because the swarvoski crystals shine bright next to the beautiful creamy pearls.
The Green twist is a fun fall creation. It is a herringbone weave and I twisted it with the flower as the catch. It closes with a hook and eye combination.
When I made this cuff I did not realize it would be this wide. It is around 2 & 1/2inches wide but it is so very comfortable to wear. I love the lacy look and I made it so that it would fit a larger or smaller wrist. In the center are fresh water pearls which I always love.
My favorite necklace, so far, is this copper choker. It was a lot of fun to create and it looks GREAT on the neck. I have closed it with an old antique button from my stash. I made this also in the pearls that are on the right hand side of the blog. Just a change of beads makes all the difference. On the copper one I used a combination of a ladder stitch and then a herringbone. The drops are small leaves and a coppery purple drop. I know this will be one that I will be doing again and again.
