Special Gift

This necklace will be shipped off to California to brighten the day of my Aunt Karen, who is undergoing Chemo treatment for breast cancer. I made this necklace at my mom's request for something lightweight and pretty to lift her spirits. Carey's beads always lift my spirits, so finished jewelry is sure to do that for her!

Fun filled weekend!

Carey, Ann Marie and I has so much fun this weekend! I was sad to see her go back to Maryland. It was a whirlwind two days as we grabbed Carey and Hailey off the plane and put them in the car and drove much of the state of CT! Carey brought beads with her, which was awesome and we played with them all for hours! :) We are all addicted to glass! We did not make as much jewelry as we had hoped to but spent hours upon hours talking and laughing, which was also a blast. Today we went to the bookstore, because that's what our children wanted to do. Then I took them to Elizabeth park for some pictures to update our blog. I hope you will check back soon as Carey and I have talked about a lot of different shapes and colors for beads, and new jewelry designs as well as some "projects" for our future. Hope you all had a great weekend! Carey and Hailey, it was a pleasure to have you here, come back soon!

Here we are!

Spooktacular Collection

As requested......ghosts, witches hats, rings and disks! Here is a fun collection of Halloween beads, I hope you like them Kristen!

Autumn Splendor!

As promised, here is the bracelet that I made with Carey's gorgeous hollow beads! This was made with Bali bead caps, Swarovski Crystals in Copper and Olivine, pewter Panten Beads, leaves and pine cones and a gorgeous Bali Silver Toggle clasp. I have already told Carey that more hollows will need to be made as they are FABULOUS to design with!

I'm afraid that this particular piece has already been spoken for, however, this can be custom ordered in a similar style, with Carey's beads, and I have more leaves and crystals and different silver toggle clasps. If this is something that you may be interested in, please let us know and we can create one just for you!
