My creative juices have had me putting together jewely pieces this year. My house is torn apart with a remodel that we are doing ourselves, when my husband is off. That, of course, means whenever we get a chance. Meanwhile, when I am not gophering here and there, planning the next step in the renovation, or ordering bathroom lighting and such, I have been putting together some new pieces.
There is something satisfying about being creative, even if it is only for one's own joy. It is nice when you only have to please yourself, but I thought I would share a few regardless.
|Lapis Lazuli wrapped in sterling silver and sterling hooks make up these dangle earrings.|
|The matching Lapis pendant can be slipped on a sterling chain or leather cord for a necklace.|
|This vintage style metal necklace has 18 red jade "berries" making up a cluster pendant, a rhinestone heart pendant, and a handmade rosette from a crocheted doiley attached to the side of additional swags of chain.|
|This little necklace wears well with vintage style tops and trendy T's.|
|This blue heart is Bloodstone Jasper. I put a nice sterling bail on it, with a black cord. I put it on my facebook today to show friends, and it sold tonight.|
|Large disk shaped smokey quart and obsidian beads make up this choker style necklace.|
|Agate is another favorite. I used to find agate chunks on the shores of Lake Superior. This all-agate necklace is mounted with a filligree sterling bail, sterling chain and sterling findings.|
|I love the way these little pink faceted drop beads turned out, wrapped in sterling on curvey chain with hooks and crystal beads.|
|As in the first photo, these are the same blue faceted drop beads with sterling wrappings and a simple sterling hooks.|
