Brass and Copper Earrings…

Posted by juliesjewels on August 13, 2011

These beautiful earrings have been listed into my ArtFire studio – ArtFire have implemented a beautiful sleek new look for the studio’s on the site, pop in here to see mine…

So the most recent listings in my studio are a couple of earrings with Brass and Copper components.

The Brass pair looks like a Wedding Dress (or so my daughter thinks) – this set have gorgeous Black Crystal beads

and the Copper pair remind me of a pair of Acorns – also created with Gunmetal Glass Beads

Both sets have stunning little matte seed beads.

Do you see these in the jewellery?

Necklaces for… MEN…

Posted by juliesjewels on July 17, 2011

I’ve been meaning to create a few more items for the gents in our lives.

I had made bracelets and necklaces a couple of years back and they’ve sold a long time ago and I never got around to doing anything else.

Well now I have, finally I have a couple of necklaces that have beautiful warm wooden beads in browns and a touch of black with striking silver beads that will be perfect for any man of distinction.

3-Focal Necklace

1-Focal Necklace

These have both been listed in my ArtFire Studio.

I hope you like these as I (fingers crossed) have plans for more jewels for men.  Just let me know what you’d like to see.

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.

DUST Craft Swap #11

Posted by juliesjewels on November 13, 2010

The most recent DUST Swap was organised for October – I’ve been really slack with taking photo’s but I’ve got them done now…

My partner was the lovely Kathryn from Geritm71 – once we had worked out what we both wanted we set to work, for me that was really easy as Kathryn wanted these Tulip Earrings.

I included this little charm as a surprise – well I just had to send something unexpected – I hope Kathryn loves her gifts as much as I adore mine…

 

My request was a little different, as Kathryn creates amazing notebooks among other things I asked for a Black and White one with the Collingwood Football Club logo, their Magpie.

Here’s what she created…

…perfect isn’t it, and it has one white and then a black page, all the way through.  This is going to be kept for special things.

Here’s a pic amongst some other items in my office, see it fits right in.

Pink for Her and Blue for…

Posted by juliesjewels on November 3, 2010

…Her

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)

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

Grey Crazy Lace Agate

Posted by juliesjewels on September 3, 2010

This necklace ended up being created as a 2-fer.  The BHV group had Crazy Lace Agate as their August gemstone and BoBB’s Imagination Station was…

I created the below because…

It’s winter over here (well it was in August) and the skies are grey, we are also receiving lots of rain which is actually filling our dry rivers and dams, so the water is a dirty, swirling colour.

The patterns in the Crazy Lace Agate is reminding me of our filling waterways…

A photo in the shade

and a photo in the sun – just to show the differences in the stone

Also includes mother of pearl discs, czech crystal and glass, sterling silver spacers and plated silver extension chain

This can be found in my ArtFire studio – Crazy Lace Agate Necklace

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.
