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.

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.

Beautiful Lava

Posted by juliesjewels on October 24, 2010

I joined in a swap back at the beginning of 2010, we were swapping Lava beads and this is what I received…

Recently I used some of these treasures and created this wonderfully rustic necklace.

This beautiful Lava Necklace has been listed on ArtFire.

Also uses pewter spacers and plated silver along with leather cord

*** I have a 10% Birthday sale running in my ArtFire studio until the end of October.  If you’d like the same savings from my Etsy store, leave ‘Birthday 10% sale’ in the notes to seller, or ask for a revised invoice using the code.

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
