More Pink…

Posted by juliesjewels on January 7, 2011

I really went through another PINK stage recently, I’ve shown a couple of earrings a little while ago.  Now here’s another sweet little pair of earrings and a heart phone charm.

So to start with, here are the little Rosebud Earrings – created with darling little lampwork roses and swarovski crystals and as always sterling silver.

Such pretty little delicate earrings – would make a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day

Also just for Valentine’s Day a little Heart PhoneCharm – with a lampwork heart, swarovksi crystal and pewter caps.

For those readers who think they may recognise this heart bead, you’re right.  This was originally used as a pendant on a necklace that I created a couple of years ago – well the necklace finally sold but the buyer didn’t want the heart so I removed it and made it into this phone charm.  I think this is really cute…

Sparkling Spinel and Pearls

Posted by juliesjewels on September 26, 2010

I simply adore the colour combination of ‘Black and White’ no surprise to tell you that I am also a Collingwood, Magpies supporter – one-eyed, as they say.  So when Spinel was announced as our BHV Gemstone of the month, I knew I had to purchase some of the sparkly black stone.

I was really disappointed when I received the beads, as they were marked, you could see where the drill ‘danced’ along the stone when the hole was being drilled.  So they weren’t stones I could makeup into a piece to see – so I created something for myself.

Here are the stones made into a necklace and pearl set with sterling silver.  Beautifully elegant.

So I’ve worn this a few times, and maybe again next weekend when Collingwood replays the Grand Final as last Saturday’s game was tied.

Go the PIES…

And just for fun I created an ArtFire collection the other day – obviously in Black and White

I added one of my Suncatchers

Butterfly Delight

Posted by juliesjewels on August 15, 2010

We have had a recent Inspiration at ‘The Hive’ using the gorgeous Butterfly photo’s…

These photo’s were actually taken by me last summer, the Monach was just sitting outside, so I went and grabbed my camera and took a couple of pictures and when I went to go inside the other little fellow was just sitting on the path waiting for his happy snap.  Not sure what the other butterfly/moth is.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

Anyway here’s the pictures and the pieces that came from this Inspiration.

August DUST Swap

Posted by juliesjewels on August 13, 2009

Swap number 5

Another couple of months has rolled around and the new swap is up and running…

This month I have Tish from Artish as a partner and this is what she received in the mail this morning…

Tish’s favorite colours are Red, Black and White and she prefers Silver and LOVES earrings.

They are all created with a mixture of Lampwork, Swarovski Crystal, Czech Glass and other beads.

She loved her new jewels – in her words — My goodies arrived today, thanks so much, they are beautiful!!
Tish

Now here is the STUNNING scarf that I received – and a little flower that is so cute.  The flower is hanging on my kitchen cabinet’s door handle at the moment…

Thank-you Tish – this is really a gorgeous scarf and so warm.

For the last two swaps now I have received scarves – I wonder what Swap number 6 will bring in September/October?

Where’s the…

Posted by juliesjewels on August 6, 2009

…Pot of Gold?

As these all remind me of Rainbows.

First up a couple of Wine Glass Charms or they could even be attached to a handle of a coffee cup.

What are they for? –  I hear you ask 

Well have you ever gone to a party and put your drink down and then wondered ‘Which one is mine?’

Now all you have to do it remember which is your colour – much easier, unless you are so drunk… then you shouldn’t be drinking anymore anyway!

Both sets have glass beads, swarovski crystals in clear AB and plated rings…

Silver Charms with Sterling Silver rounds

 

Gold Charms with Gold-Filled rounds – SOLD

Something Sparkly…

Posted by juliesjewels on April 18, 2009

A forum I’m involved with has a monthly challenge and for April it’s…

1. Make something to place in a kitchen that will decorate it
2. Turn something old into new
3. Something sparkly
4. Something made of paper

~~~ ~~~~ ~~~

So I chose the ‘Something Sparkly’ and created this… it could also hang in a kitchen window – so it may also fit into the first catergory

A large teardrop Crystal, Swarovski Crystals with Czech and Vintage Glass and Sterling Silver

What do you think – is it sparkly enough?

As part of the rules the item has to be for sale and shown in the challenge thread with a price – so I hope this sells, if it doesn’t it will find a home in my ArtFire Studio

 Keep watching I’ll let you know how it goes at the end of April!

edited to say – Well it didn’t sell, so click on the link above to find the listing with a few more images
