I am in the mood for glass pearls

I am making these "babies" for my holiday giveaways. I just want to extend my "thank you's" to people who help my little business running... and most of all for choosing my designs among others. From the bottom of my heart, I am so thankful!
I used gp wires for the links, 2 different glass pearl sizes (they're Japan-made), and assortment of different gp toggles. I know that whoever they find these bracelets to be worthy of using, will appreciate the work that goes with each of them.
Now, now, I have to stop here because I have to make at least twenty five of these....

Earring Burst #1

Here's another creation from my "studio". I am happy to share with you Earring Burst #1. It is made using Vintage Swarovski ss47 Saturn. It is an undrilled rivoli covered with delicas, 15/0 miyuki glass beads and 15/0 charlottes. If you have any questions on how to make it or how you could get one, just drop me a line.

tubular crochet ~ choker and earring set

Here's my take on the mauve/black diamond/crystal order that Lorraine made last month. I strung a pattern of different colors and kinds of seed beads. I use the miyukis since they look so uniform and perfect for this project. I also used the German made top stitching thread to crochet the beads together to make this elegant piece. I did not want to put all my hard work in vain so I used the sterling silver findings to finish off my set. I am looking forward to make my own findings in the near future...

This necklace will be a Christmas gift for her daughter. I hope that she will love this for I love creating this set of jewelry.

Etsy Mini

I did not really know what to do with my etsy shop right now. I was so excited when someone bought from me but then I got nothing after that. Maybe it's the present economy or maybe I have to adjust my prices. Anyway, I started browsing the site and found etsy mini where you can make widget of your creations to show off on your other personal website. Well, I'll try my luck using this service and see what happens after that. Here's what I've got from the etsy mini...

Wish me luck. tfr
