The Stone of Skye!!
what do you think??
Other than finding the famous stone, I have been making jewelry!! I know it's shocking!! A jewelry designer, making jewelry!! Who would have thought!
I have been trying to showcase my tiles more to entice you to buy your own! I am happy to say I have a few regulars that now frequent my shop so it's a start :) I just hope more of you will try to experiment with my fun charms and pendants!! Next week, I am going to do a post on a couple of artists that have been using my tiles in their designs and I will post photos for you to enjoy :)
Summer Sun". I have been wanting to use some of this large sunny Magnesite I found at my local bead shop, and what better place to start than with a fun vintage style charm with a bright yellow flower! Nothing sunny is complete without one of Sue Beads lovely lampwork!! I also used some of ArtbyLisi's lampwork and some fun Czech glass. I am really pleased with this one, it just radiates summer!!
I thought I would continue on the summer theme and make these fun bird earrings! These will be listed this morning in my Etsy shop. As with most of my pieces these days I used Vintaj brass. I just love the old world feel of the aged brass. I added Czech glass rosettes and two matching wood tiles. These are fun and very lightweight!
I am thinking of turning the clasp around and attaching it to the other side, I think now that I look closely at it, it makes more sense! Then it would be adjustable!! I might just have to get back to work... After that I will re-photograph and list it in my Etsy shop :)
