Orange-Creamsicle

Posted by juliesjewels on September 23, 2010

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

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

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.

Bluebell Woods

Posted by juliesjewels on July 19, 2009

These pretty earrings were created with the gorgeous Bluebell Woods photo in mind.

Created with Peridot Green Czech Crystals and Purple Vintage Lucite with Copper findings.  The earwires actually started their life as headpins and I discovered that I had no copper earwires left so I made these earwires…

My first pair of handmade earwires – what do you think?

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.
