I’ve been on an earring kick lately… a few new pairs listed on ArtFire this month include these…

 A picture’s worth 1000 words, so I’m going to let the photo’s speak for themselves!

I’ll start with the Sterling Silver pairs – all with beautiful Lampwork Glass beads

I love this pair – almost kept them for myself…

These are super sparkly…

Chandelier Red Glass Teardrops


And finally the Copper –

Red Glass Teardrops and Daisy’s

…I’ve got a few more to come, but not sure if they are going to be listed or sent to our Gallery in town.

Beautiful Kyanite and Pearls

Posted by juliesjewels on January 18, 2011

The gem of the month for a bead group I’m involved with is the beautiful Kyanite.

So I paired the little I had on hand with some lucious pearls and created a delicate little necklace and earring set.

Highlighted with shiny sterling silver.

I simply love how this set came out – hope you do too.

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)
