Creations Without Boundaries!

Those of you who have gotten the newest issue of Stringing might have seen my "Spring has Sprung" necklace. The focal is by my dear friend LeAnn Weih of Summers Studio.It was the inspiration for the entire piece! I absolutely love this necklace and I am delighted to have been able to get it into the fabulous pages of Stringing Magazine!!
This is another piece featured in the magazine. My Amazonite bracelet with the Jade Scott focal. The soft colours of the Amazonite mixed with the brass make it rich and opulent. I have two more things in this issue, but I wanted to share other things instead.

When I say without boundaries,this is what I mean. Being able to create something to fit someones special interests and likes. This was a special order for a friend of mine for her daughter for Christmas. She loves to read and loves Twilight, so we came up with this OOAK bookmark! I hear she was really happy with it ;)

I handmade the tile, drilled it in a way that we would not lose the image and added a few fun things that went well with the theme. No boundaries! A truly unique and fun creation.

This particular necklace is part of my beach line. I love making them and having them all different. Some are more complex and some are just plain fun. Absolutely my top necklace seller on Etsy! The bead featured in this necklace is by a local friend of mine that I like to go lampworking with. Wendy Algers, founder of Black Bird Beads. She is an amazingly talented lampworker with way more patience that I will ever have! lol Thanks Wendy for allowing me to look through your stash and pick out a few I liked ;)

This week challenge yourself to create without boundaries!
