My Muse is Back!! {and she brought friends!!}

I had a request for a special necklace. A lovely lady contacted me about the necklaces featured on the Vintaj website and wanted one made similar to them. We went over details and I started with this one. I mixed the greens and creams with the brass and it came out looking fabulous!! Thanks Jess for sharing your talent with us, your pieces were a true inspiration for this necklace and the following one as well.

These are the first two that I have created without drilling into the wood. The use of filigree really adds so much to the tiles and pendants, I may have to make many, many more of these.
This is the other one I made. I wanted to give my new customer a choice in colour, so I made two! This is the one she chose, she fell in love with the pink. I made them both with Vintaj and Czech glass. I will be coming out with more styles like this soon. They are very time consuming but so satisfying!! I still have some rose tiles left in my shop, though not many. I am working on some more right now, in different styles. I can not tell you how many hours I spent looking through Etsy for the perfect rose pdf!! But I found a couple that I am really happy with!!

On another note, I have a few new pendants that have just been completed. I have a couple in the shop and some that I just finished yesterday that will start appearing in the shop in the next couple of days.

I will also be photographing my new "kits" that I have been putting together over the last couple of months and I will start listing those as well. There could be a small delay there because of the amount of time these are taking to assemble, but worry not, they shall come!!

This pendant is one of the newest ones!! I really LOVE the shape and how they look alone and even more on a piece of jewelry!! The filigree holds it quite well in place and it is a wonderful touch of whimsy. This particular one needed to stand alone! A little filigree and a little chain! Too classy to add anything!!
I hope to list it in my shop before the weekend. Do feel free to reserve any of these pieces! Leave me a note on the post and I will list it with your name on it :)

Let me know what you think of this new "style" if you will, I would truly love to get your input!

Thanks for visiting!!

I love the pendants with the filigree. Although the pendants are very beautiful on their own, the filigree just adds a little something extra and makes the pendants really stand out. I absolutely love that second necklace!!!
