New Ephemera Jewelry

I finally made myself some tiles. With the thousands of tiles I have made over the last year and a bit, this is the first time I have sat down and made them just for me! I wanted to try a couple of designs with earrings and I wanted to revisit my tile charm bracelets I was making at the very beginning.  I don't know why I stopped making them, they always sold right away. So I am bringing them back!! lol
Now bringing them back does not mean they will be the same! I was feeling rich and warm, so the colours that came out in the designs are that as well. Dark reds and greens, hints of warm pinks and of course, Vintaj Brass!
These little bird cage tiles have been sitting around for a bit, staring at me, so I decided to make a few sets :) I chose the blue ones for myself and added all flower dangles to go with the images. I really like the way they turned out, cute, sweet and even whimsical! Sure to put a smile on your face :)
I am just in love with this sweet little Ferris Wheel Tile! Part of the same set as the rose in the other charm bracelet, this one had more greens and I LOVE green :) I added a mix of Czech glass, including pinks and greens, I added bead caps for a richer feel and more texture. This photo does not do this piece justice!

I wanted to save this piece for last. I thought you might have fun with this one :) I know I sure did! Many of us Love Owls! I am starting to make more pieces with them since they sell so well. This is a fun piece made with all Czech glass and lots of Vintaj Brass!
I wanted to add a little blue to my selection, I just noticed when I was redoing my displays that I was getting quite low on blue pieces! Some of you may know that blue is one of the top selling colours for jewelry and clothing. If you did not know, now you do. ;) I have always been more draw to greens myself, but I love blue. They also look wonderful together, so maybe I should make a couple designs in both! hmmmm...

I will be photographing some new tiles today and adding new listings to my shop. It has been a busy time here, loads of homework and exams for Hubby and other school things for Emma. We have been kept quite busy with everything, but now we will have a little break so I may get to even visit with some friends while I have the time! That would be nice! I think they are starting to think I have abandoned them! I hope they don't hate me too much! Life is a little crazy for each of us at different times, but I am always there, even if I don't always seem to be!

Keep stopping in! I love to see your comments and hear your thoughts!

Gorgeous! LOVE the dragonfly earrings, and I'm also loving that first bracelet with the flowers and the birdcage earrings.
