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

His & Hers… Newborn Presents

Posted by juliesjewels on August 16, 2008

These are for a proud Nanna to give her almost born first grandchildren – a set of twins to be named Alexis and Benji.

Made with Natural Amazonite on Benji’s and Rhodonite on Alexis’ with Swarkovski Crystals, Sterling Silver and Liquid Silver.  The Nanna chose the Gemstones and Crystals.


I’ve designed a simple little card to go along with these, saying that they are from Nanna & Pa on the occassion of your birth, describing the Gemstones Meanings and Healing Properties.

I hope that Nanna as well as the twins mum love these Suncatchers as they are much prettier in real life.

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…
