This is truly like having the sun wrapped around you with the bright golden faceted czech glass teardrop, wire wrapped with a warm and colorful mix of swarovski crystals danging above. The vintage 18 inch sterling silver chain and a delicate diamond cut that simply adds to the overall sparkle. The end result is a simple and beautiful necklace that you can wear with your dressiest of outfits but also works with a tee and a great pair of jeans!
I was thinking about the song "I Can See Clearly Now" when I was making this little necklace. It's a song of hope, renewal, and of better days ahead! Here's the original video complete with awesome clapping at the end! Happy Spring!
There are lots of little accents in this beautiful red and cream necklace! It starts with a beautiful red czech glass pearl nestled between two antiqued bronze vintage style bead caps. Dangling from a vintage style chain are clusters of cream pearls and red glass drops accented by bronze findings. A large vintage pearl was added to the mix. This grouping was mounted on beautiful antiqued bronze rope chain and held together with an 18 inch antiqued bronze swirly clasp. It's rich, it's regal and will make a wonderful accessory to your wardrobe.

Woven wire ring out of pure copper wire, with amethyst and citrine.
The ring is a size 6.5, The whole band was woven so it is nice and smooth to wear. The band is 7mm wide. It takes several hours to weave this ring.
I pondered what to create with this beautifully enhanced natural stone in a non-symmetric shape...so many wonderful colors and hues such as teal, brown, blue, and even a bit of orange. When I finally put the piece together I was really pleased with the results. I especially like the neat little heart locket I added and the beautiful teal czech glass flowers!
This necklace began by linking together colorful lucite balls to form a chain of color. Coordinating lucite flowers and swarovski crystals were grouped together on either side and my favorite chunky bronze etched cross chain was linked to the rainbow...all tied together using an antiqued bronze swirly toggle clasp. The end result is a beautiful 19 inch necklace that will brighten up your wardrobe throughout all the seasons!
This necklace began with a beautiful large amber Crystal Point Cut Prism Elongated Faceted Glass Teardrop, wire wrapped in antiqued brass wire, accented with a wire wrapped golden swarovski briolette. An ornate antiqued brass spoon dangles from a vintage style rope chain. All are mounted on an 18 inch vintage style figaro chain and tied together with a swirly antiqued brass toggle clasp. It's a sparkling accent to any of your outfits all year long!
This necklace began with a beautiful apple green faceted czech glass teardrop, wire wrapped in sterling silver and adorned with a colorful array of swarovski crystal, dancing above. The 17 1/2 inch chain is made of delicate vintage sterling silver tied together with a vintage circle clasp. The end result is a beautiful necklace with a lot of sparkle! A wonderful piece to celebrate the coming of spring! It also makes a great gift for a bride or bridesmaid!
Many of us have been receiving messages from Google Feed over the past few days saying something to the effect of "no items have been inserted". According to what have I read on the Etsy Forums, this is just a Google glitch dating back to when we used to be able to upload our own feed. Now, if our shops are syndicated, etsy does it for us. for some reason Google is reactivating something and sending out these failure messages, but actually Etsy is still handling our feed for us. The simplest way to avoid receiving these messages is to delete this old feed since it's against Google's rules for us to submit Etsy items ourselves so the feeds will always be rejected. This can be done by logging into Google Merchant and deleting them here: http://www.google.com/merchants/bulkuploads

Have you discovered Pinterest yet? Pinterest is a social catalog service. Think of it as a virtual pin board where you can collect and share your favorite things. You can also follow people who also have a love of wonderful things. The photographs are extraordinary! And many of our handmade peeps are there! The first thing I did was drag the ⚲Pin Itlink to my bookmarks bar. This way, anywhere I am on the web, I can add something that strikes me to one of my boards...or start a new board based on what I've found. There are many different boards you can make. You can customize the default boards you receive on your page and add as many new types of boards as you want. I have just begun to play with the different boards as a promotional tool for my Etsy Shop and to help promote my fellow handmade artisans. I created one for my jewelry designs, one for treasuries that I have been featured in and for the ones I've curated. I have a board for blog posts that either have featured me, posts from my own blog where I featured other artisans, and plan to use it to gather together really good blogs to read. I also have a board of all the things on Etsy I love. And here's one I made about Favorite Places and Spaces...
There are many different creative ideas for individual boards:
How about a storyboard? This is one of my favorite ways to map out future goals!
Create a board to plan a wedding, an special event, or even help choose a vacation spot
Use a board to develop a design or DIY project
How about a Recipe or food board...low fat, gluten free, or just plain yummy
A Gift Idea Board...a great way to organize gift ideas for family and friends
The possibilities are endless! Why not request an invite from Pinterest and let the inspiration begin!
