Simply Sweet & Delicate

Posted by juliesjewels on March 28, 2009

Once Upon A Design Challenge – Part Three

Part three has the following eras…

Neoclassical – Art Nouveau – Industrial Age 

I choose the Art Nouveau and created this necklace with an old pendant and freshwater pearls to replicate some of the jewellery worn in this period of time.  Counting the links on the chain became a pain real quick – but they are at least all the same length…

This is really quiet a delicate necklace, for those that love a simple classic style.

Guess What?

Posted by juliesjewels on March 21, 2009

Well come on – Give up!

Well it’s more PINK…

A bracelet and earring set created with some of the Pink MOP donuts and Etched Aluminum Beads, highlighted with simple Sterling Silver spacers.  One of the very few designs I have done lately that has NO Swarovski Crystals, the etched beads gives this set enough sparkle.

Mardi Bugs

Posted by juliesjewels on March 13, 2009

I’m sure you have heard of the Mardi Gras – well this is the ‘Mardi Bugs’

This bracelet was inspired by the following Inspiration photo

Such a colorful photo needed something just as bright and happy and all I had were a ‘buggy’ pack of buttons – so….

I created this three strand memory wire bracelet, the masks look a little ‘buggy’ don”t they –  Butterflies or something…

All the strands were seperate and I joined them together with a three way bar connector.  This was one of the most fiddly things I have ever created. 

It is now in the possession of my youngest daughter – Jacinda, I asked her to try it on so I could see how it looked and she loved it.  So I gave it to her.  She hasn’t taken it off yet.

Cool Waters

Posted by juliesjewels on March 1, 2009

I created these earrings to fit two different challenges from two different groups…

First up the Bounties of Beads Boutique have an Imagination Station banner theme each fortnight and this time it’s…

Guess who creates the banner each time – yep it’s me and I just got this in under the wire as a new theme goes up tomorrow March 1st.

So I created these earrings today – they really are so pretty.  Just like a cascading waterfall shimmering in the sun.

BUT they also fit in with the BeadHive’s March Gemstone Challenge – Aquamarine

They are made with 12mm Faceted Aquamarine beads, Aqua Pearls, Crystal AB Swarovski crystals and Sterling Silver.

Cool Waters listed on ArtFire and Zibbert
