I'm dusting the cobwebs off this little neglected blog....neglected by ME anyway....Sheesh...when exactly was my last post?? hmmmm.
Well...the summer is starting to wind down...the kids will be back in school soon....and the house will become a little quieter and alot cleaner! Kristen and I have been very busy this summer! All sorts of fun ideas floating around in our heads for new creations. Here is a little set I put together for Kristen...it is still missing the greens, but they are joining the group soon!! I actually made some today and am impatiently waiting for the kiln to cool down to see how they turned out! I can't wait to see what she does with them all!!

Here it is my finished piece made with two sets of Carey's gorgeous lampwork beads! I combined the two sets, worked in sections with Swarovski crystals, connected them with Silver oval links and then this masterpiece was born! The earrings are a match and are so sparkly and pretty! Carey, your beads totally rock! Enjoy!

A kitchen sink bracelet, made with the beautiful Blue Zircon (December) Swarovski Crystals, flower spacers and top drilled white pearl seed beads. So pretty! I hope you enjoy it and wear it in good health! Happy Birthday!

Here's a gorgeous watch made with one of Carey's bead sets, that has lots of different colors including purples, browns and turquoise! I just love how this set turned out! It was a custom order and I had requested extra disks for matching earrings. I can create a watch for you like this as well, just pick your beads from Carey's Etsy Store and let me know which one's you like and what shape watch face you are interested in and Viola! It will be custom made and listed in my Etsy Store just for you! Carey and I aim to please so if there is a specific color scheme you have in mind that you don't see, just give us a holler!

Here's a really fun bracelet made with Carey's Rings and some hammered silver circles and toggle. I love these bracelets! They are so fun and versatile! You can wear them with jeans for a casual look and then they can be more elegant when you get all gussied up for the holiday's! The black rings really stand out with the silver!

I just posted this up on my own blog but had to add it here as well.
These are GORGEOUS beads made by Carey, that are an amber color with lots of swirls of purples in them. Oh my gosh, just so pretty! I had some disks that matched as well so I threw them all together with Swarovski Crystals in Smoked Topaz, Amethyst and Light Colorado Topaz. There are some pewter pieces separating the beads and some awesome drum beads. I made lots of charms and then wrapped it all up with coordinating seed beads!! Yummy! The only problem is that it started off as a size 7 1/2" and once I finished wrapping it it fits more like a 7" now. So it will have to be for someone with a small wrist or I can resize it with a slightly different end result (same concept but the seed bead wrap may end up in different places, if you know what I mean?).
Once my bead boards are completed I will start listing in the store again (hopefully mid week next week) but as always if there is something you like that you want to get before it goes up for sale to the public, just give me a holler!
Carey, these beads are gorgeous! You have such a knack for putting my favorite colors together!! Thanks my friend! :) Can't wait to see what you put up next!

I posted this up on my blog and now I'm adding it here! A gorgeous mixture of Carey's beads in blue's, greens, and some yellow in all kinds of shapes. I have added a ton of Bali Silver rings, and a Bali Twist Toggle. There's so much going on in this bracelet and I just can't pick my favorite part of it. I love it all! This is a substantial piece, not for those of you who like skinny bracelets! :)
I'm already trying to plan another one of these, going rummaging in my bead stash for more of Carey's FABULOUS beads!

Here are some pictures of the Sunflower Farm bracelet and matching earrings that I made with Carey's beads. I love this set! Ann came over and SHE loves it... Oh my... it's quite a popular piece! Going up on Etsy, so I hope you'll check it out! Carey, your beads are the best! You keep making them, and I'll keep designing with them! :)
