Creations and Passion!

 I was busy creating when we went camping. I don't normally bring beads or anything of the sort when I go to the mountains or away for a weekend, but it was my birthday, so I really wanted to create for myself. I wanted to create for fun and I wanted to create because it is a passion!! Those of you who do this most likely feel pretty much the same as I do. It makes you smile, you feel happy even! You may even feel more relaxed!


 I made both these necklaces while we were away. I made a few others too, but I am unsure if I should post them or submit them! We will see. I used Vintaj, my favorite, and created the Variscite and House necklace above. This is one of the palest forms of the stone, but so soft and pretty. Perfect in fact to go with this wonderful Pendant by Martha Eason of Menagerie Studio!! I will have many more pieces to show you made with her fun Charms.

On the right is a necklace made with one of my French Eiffel Tower Pendants! I loved the colour variation in the background of the pendant and added beads at the top that would bring out those wonderful colours. Filigree wrapping is now THE thing everyone wants to do with my pendants, so most of them are now coming un-drilled or custom drilled to offer more choices or variety. Thanks Jess for your wonderful inspiration ;)


Now I will bring up these fun trinkets. I created these as Key Chains or Purse Charms. They are fun, creative and unique. Each one has a little something different on it and can really reflect your personality. They come in Bronze, Copper and GunMetal grey. I will be listing some in my shop soon.

 For this particular piece, I am interested in feedback. I wanted to try something different and I kind of like it, but I want to know if you do or if you think it's a big wasted of time. Don't worry, you won't hurt my feelings, I honestly want to know what you think. I basically burnt the pendant and the image separately and the assembled them and varnished them. It makes for a slightly different look.
 This is my new Favorite! A moth! So gorgeous!! I adore the colours and the shape and tone of the wings. It almost looks soft to me. I hope to find more like these around, but for now this is pretty much the only one I have.
I also have some new "French Girly" pieces coming out. I have Corsets and French Script. I also have different Shop announcements or advertising on pendants that has a mix of images combined with them. I am hoping to have a bit of time later to post some of these fun new pieces for you.

Keep Coming Back For More Updates!!!

When we use to camp I always brought something to work on...at the time it was mosaics, I always found working outside so inspiring.
Your pieces are awesome and I especially love the first necklace.

Had to come back...I love the little house and the moth. The burnt edged piece is definitely wonderful, too. But I think the little house is my fav!
