More Treasures!!

My muse paid me a visit the other night and I was finally able to create. I have a show tomorrow morning at the "Third Academy" school in the south part of the city, so I really needed to make new pieces. I think I had sold most of my substantial pieces at my last show, so it was time to restock! So here are some of the pieces...
 This piece above is the only one not made of solid copper. This one is brass. I of course used many art beads, loving how they make each piece so unique.
A fun fresh piece perfect for spring. whatever does not sell on Saturday will be listed in my shop during the week.
Beautiful pendant by Chinook Jewelry. I have been holding onto this one for a couple of years!
This one I made last month, it was rejected by Bead Trends but I still don't get why, I really love it and wore it the other day and got lots of compliments on it. You win some you lose some! lol
One of my new favorite pieces. A HUGE pendant to suit this year's biggest trend! A large filigree piece in behind one of my new 1X3 inch pendants, adorned with elegant black and brass beads and chain. Wore it yesterday and got lots of compliments on this one too!
 This fun bracelet I listed this afternoon in my Etsy shop and it sold within minutes! If only that happened everyday! So fun and colourful! For those of you reading this, if you wonder why I wear the jewelry I then go and sell in my shop, it's kind of a way to advertise and do quality control at the same time. I would hate to sell you a piece of jewelry that had something that was sticking out and hurting you, or something that was made with a less than durable piece and broke or even a clasp that was too loose or too tight. So fear not! I am not wearing out the New jewelry you are buying, I am making sure that each unique piece is well made for you.
This last pair is a fun asymmetrical pair I just love. These are listed in my shop right now! 

Thanks for stopping by, come again soon!

NEW SIZE!! NEW IMAGES!! Ephemera Pendants by Skye Jewels!!

I have been working on these for quite some time. Finally they are ready!! So very excited to be able to share them with you! Almost 30 images with more to come soon! These are all 1X3, so a much longer pendant. I was inspired to make these bigger pendants since one of the "in" things for the year is large pendants!
So I have a few different styles... Eiffel Towers and Bees...
Vintage Roses in different colours...
These amazing birds!! Love them!
Vintage Alice in Wonderland!
A mix of Butterflies and a Mushroom...
And a mix of everything else including a hint of Steampunk, and a little royal flair!

ALL Images are by Calico Collage and will be available for purchase soon...

I hope these inspire you to create something new! They will be selling for $8.50 in my shop as soon as I list them. The 1X2 are $8 so these are only a tad more. I will try to make something to show you how they look in a finished piece of jewelry, just need about 6 more hours in a day! Lol.

Thanks for visiting, let me know if you are looking for something...

E-Book by Lorelei Eurto

I wanted an opportunity to see inside the amazingly creative mind of the multi-talented Lorelei Eurto, so I purchased her newly released e-book "Asymmetry Made Easy" I found it very well written with some of Lorelei's humour and very easy to understand. This is the perfect book for someone who knows the basic steps to make jewelry, but needs a little inspiration on how to pull it all together. 

This is what I created referring to her Asymmetrical Diagram towards the end of the book. I kept it simple plus at the time I was playing with Evie in the big button bin, so why not a button necklace! lol
 Long necklaces like this are hard to photograph, but here it is!

The book is very much worth a look. It's affordable and just reads right from your computer. Beautiful photography is included with examples of how she uses the techniques herself!

To purchase Lorelei's book follow this link... "Asymmetry Made Easy" and purchase it directly from her blog. 

I believe Lorelei might be making more of these, so keep your eyes open!

Thanks for stopping by!
