Baubles, Bangles and More Beads ; )

I've been so indulgent the last year gobbling up loads of beads at the local gem and mineral shows.  As I've mentioned before, my eyes grow bigger than my pocketbook at these affairs and I just can't help myself from adopting all the beautiful treasures I see! My guilt is finally starting to wane since I'm actually using them in my new designs and putting them up for sale.  It is often not easy parting with my little creations but I'm so happy when someone loves them like I do....makes the separation go easier. 


Available on Etsy Sunday December 5th!


Here are a few new ones....


Persimmon colored onyx layered with a fine silver floral pendant
strung with a mix faceted semi-precious  stone beads 
(aquamarine, carnelian, onyx, moonstone, labradorite, 




fine silver pendant with Austrailian opal beads 
strung on Irish waxed linen



fine silver charms mixed with labradorite,
turquoise & sterling beads on Greek leather cord



All silver pieces are created from antique Afghani bronze jewelry dies that I found in a bazaar in Islamabad, Pakistan.

Love that burnt red/orange onyx with the silver and beautiful beads! It's got some silk road gypsy caravan vibe going on! LOVE it!

The last piece is just delicious. love those beads ...some of my fave stones. Yes, the guilt I get from buying supplies is sometimes a little hard to handle...I just get so carried away. I am finding the better the matericals the more fun is the work and the better result..
