Pretty in… Purple!

Posted by juliesjewels on June 29, 2011

Today I have a couple of designs in Purple to show you.

First up, is a bracelet that I created for the FaceBook event – Creations Color Challenge – Purple/Lilac and Black. – the event is now closed but this is what I made…

Lampwork, Czech Glass, Swarovski Crystals & Sterling Silver

The new theme is Black and White, I wonder if I can do something for that?

Also are these adorable little shell earrings.  These were created with the Wisteria image as inspiration.

Shells, Swarovski Crystals and Sterling Silver

Both items are in my Etsy store – Lampwork Bracelet & Shell Earrings

Purple Power

Posted by juliesjewels on May 31, 2011

Who like Purple?  Well I know lots of people who have purple as one of their favourite colours – I must admit I have a fondness for Purple as well…

So I’m happy with the way this set turned out.  Now you’ll notice that the glass beads look a little purple in one photo and really blue in another, that because it’s Alexandrite blue/purple Colour Change Glass Beads – I hope that will answer those questions!

So how about some photo’s

First up – the Bracelet

Now the Earrings & Pendant

These are all for sale in my Etsy store and they all have the beautiful floral Polymer Clay beads and the bracelet also highlights some lovely MOP beads.

Pink for Her and Blue for…

Posted by juliesjewels on November 3, 2010


Well it is when we are talking about some stunning necklaces.

First – this pink one was created using the beautiful Coneflower as an inspiration.

Completed with various pink and frosted white glass beads, gold filled beads and goldplated chain.


Now for the Blue – The beginnings of this was the need to use the gorgeous Paua Shell pendant and the challenge for a piece of jewellery created with Apatite…

…this necklace also uses Black Onyx and Sterling Silver

Both are listed in my ArtFire Studio.  Coneflower Necklace and Paua Shell Necklace


I have also recently made this little set for a local lady to wear to a Melbourne Cup party, she was creating an outfit for herself with the colours in the set… but once made up she didn’t like it at all – but she kept the set, simply because they are her colours.

I put together a simple single strand of soft pink/peach pearls and a little drop of the pearls as earrings.  (Sorry no photo, but they are the same pearls as above)

A recent photo inspiration was this gorgeous orange Chrysanthemum, I have so little orange beads that I was really struggling until I came across these in my stash…

Little orange and cream lampwork beads which remind me of bugs, but my daughter said crabs – scuttle, scuttle, scuttle

Orange-Creamsicle on ArtFire, created with the lampwork, cat’s eyes czech glass, sterling silver and pewter

Lily of the Valley

Posted by juliesjewels on August 21, 2010

A recent Floral Inspiration photo was of some gorgeous Lily of the Valley blooms – aren’t they beautiful, I can almost smell them.

Well I only had one bead that was perfect for a focal, and matched other beads to suit…

So the beautiful Lampwork Floral bead was used with other plain green lampwork beads along with White Moonglow Lucite and Sterling Silver.  For more details visit the listing on ArtFire… Lily of the Valley
