Pearly Delights

Posted by juliesjewels on January 31, 2009

I’ve been playing around with some faux pearls recently – and they have made some stunning earrings that would suit a Wedding or young ladies Debutante.

Combined with Sterling Silver and Swarovski Crystals

Drowning in Earrings

Posted by juliesjewels on January 28, 2009

I’ve been going through my bead stash recently and pulled out a few bead pairs and have created little earring sets with them.

First up are a few made with Black-Plated earwires and findings and various Lampwork, Swarovski Crystals, Czech Glass and Miracle beads


Then we have some with Antique Brass findings and Lampwork, Swarovski Crystals and Vintage Lucite beads

The bottom pair is showing both sides of the gorgeous beads, they really are so pretty.

These will all be listed on Zibbet over the coming days – so keep an eye out for them

White Wedding

Posted by juliesjewels on January 26, 2009

I have some beautifully romantic white Sugar beads made from Polymer Clay and I thought that they would be just perfect for a Wedding set – or even for a young ladies Deb…

So I added lots of sparkling Swarovski Crystals in Clear AB and lashings of delicate Sterling Silver.

Prehistoric Necklace

Posted by juliesjewels on January 23, 2009

Once Upon A Design Challenge – Part One

A recent challenge saw me having to choose from the following eras

Prehistoric – Sumerian – Egyptian – Greek

So I choose Prehistoric – this necklace is made on leather cord with a shell for the focal highlighted by white bone and brown wood beads.  All components that would probably have been found at that time (Ignore the silver – that’s artistic interpertation)

So here’s the necklace

Listed on Made It – Prehistoric Necklace

This challenge runs for another two months with different ages to come.  I will keep you updated as the new era’s are posted and with what I choose to do.

Winter Berries – Part 2

Posted by juliesjewels on January 4, 2009

With the creation of my new earrings yesterday, I decided to make a complete set – which includes a necklace and bracelet.

I had just enough of the Swarovski Crystals in my stash to create these… and there aren’t anymore of the Lampwork beads left either.

So here’s the complete set.

What do you think?

I just love this set – it is totally me…
