What I've been up to...

Here are a few photos of some new jewelry designs - I have been wanting to play with some moonstone briolettes I recently bought and then I played around with some other new components in my bead box - came up with lots of new stuff!  The greenish stone with the birds is chalcedony.  I love the combo of red cinnabar with the turquoise too.
I think the moonstone will look great in the summer with a tan.  You can't see it too well in these photos but the moonstone has the neatest blue in it when it catches the light.  I have been experimenting with those y necklaces for awhile and I like these designs the best so far.  Another new thing I've decided I like is to use a little bit larger chain so that I can make the necklace adjustable to any length.  I especially like putting a little decorative accent at the end of the chain.  Another new direction for me is the last necklace - it is actually designed to be a "Hair Chain" - to be worn over your hair kind of like a crown - but it doubles as a necklace as well.  One of the hair stylists where I bring my jewelry requested them and now her daughter and her friends are wearing them to school : )

You can e-mail me anytime if you would like any of my jewelry for yourself or as a gift.
