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

It’s Hot, Hot, Hot

Sizzling Hot

I think the solar flare has jumped all the way to the planet Earth and created some hot earrings

SOLD – thank-you Suzie

Such pretty lampwork beads (the same as in the Parrot earrings) and gorgeous faceted Carnelian highlighted beautifully with Sterling Silver.  Just waiting for a new home.

Messy Earrings

Posted by juliesjewels on July 13, 2008

OK now this one is a little out of left field for me – but I had a request for a pair of earrings to be made silimar to a pair the client already had.  These are for a friend that loves the originals. 

So this is what I’ve come up with – I call them my ‘Messy Earrings’


They had to be pink and have been created on black findings – a various lot of Mother-Of-Pearl, Glass and Lucite beads.

The client loves them – so I’m happy… so does my 15 year old daughter…
