Another Stunning Piece

I recently sent out a bead fairy package to a friend of mine she made this Lovely Summer fun piece with one of the sets of beads I had made/sent her. Kim paired these blue boro beads with dark saphire swarvoski crystals and oodles of Hill Tribe and Bali Silver. I just love it!

Check this out~

On the Bead Hive, the ebay group that I am a member of, we have a Bead of the Month (BOTM) club where we swap beads with a designated partner. A few months ago I was paired with a lady named Shelley. I sent her a set of boro lampwork beads with the BOTM, and she created this Gorgeous necklace with them! She added big, beautiful swarvoski crystals, and a pendant made by Dhea Powers. Isn't it just stunning?

Jewelry Hiatus Over for now...lol

Well after not making any actual jewelry pieces other then a pendant for the last 2-3 weeks I decided it was time to play with beadies again. I bought these beautiful polymer clay coins from an artist on ebay/etsy named Susan better known as Squirrelette . The flowers have a glorious combination of pinks ranging from light pink to a deep pink almost a maroon color. I feel this set certainly inspired me to create! It is full of freshwater pearls, sterling silver, swarvoski crystals & pearls, with some czech glass satin rounds as accents, used to pull the colors of the leaves out of the floral coins.



You can search for Susan on ebay or etsy to find some more of her wonderful polymer clay beads here is her link to etsy:
