Pretty in… Purple!

Posted by juliesjewels on June 29, 2011

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.

Shells, Swarovski Crystals and Sterling Silver

Both items are in my Etsy store – Lampwork Bracelet & Shell Earrings

Prehistoric Necklace

Posted by juliesjewels on January 23, 2009

Once Upon A Design Challenge – Part One

A recent challenge saw me having to choose from the following eras

Prehistoric – Sumerian – Egyptian – Greek

So I choose Prehistoric – this necklace is made on leather cord with a shell for the focal highlighted by white bone and brown wood beads.  All components that would probably have been found at that time (Ignore the silver – that’s artistic interpertation)

So here’s the necklace

Listed on Made It – Prehistoric Necklace

This challenge runs for another two months with different ages to come.  I will keep you updated as the new era’s are posted and with what I choose to do.

Waiting For Summer

Posted by juliesjewels on August 15, 2008

I’m becoming really sick and tired of this cold Australian winter.  So to warm myself up a little I put together this Summertime/Beachy Suncatcher.

Now I just need the Summer sun to shine on these gorgeous crystals – then again if I list it someone else can wait for the sun and I can go back to the heater…

This is a competition held each week with a different theme, so I may have to enter more often.  lol

But it is truly humbling to have your peers vote for your piece as their favorite so I am also thanking each and every designer who voted for my bracelet and earring set.
