My loss is someones gain

My favorite necklace has gone to a new home and I'm somewhat sad. I realize this is all part of the process but I invested a great deal of emotion in this piece and I it became my favorite before it was even finished. I hope the new owner loves it as much as I did. Oh well, I'm back to designing new and exciting piece... stay tuned....

Beautiful Collections of Cool Blues on Artfire

Friday, March 9, 2012


I've been watching this TV series called 'Spartacus'.  It's based in ancient Rome and the jewelry the woman wear is beautiful.  The show is adult oriented and very bloody so I wouldn't recommend it for children or the squeamish, but, if you do choose to watch the show, keep an eye out for the jewelry.   This piece was inspired by some of the jewelry on the show.  Where do you get your inspiration?

Springtime Flight

Here's a fun necklace I made with aluminum jump rings and a beautiful bird pendant.  The colors are perfect for springtime and the lightness of the aluminum chain make it a wonderfully light accessory for any springtime outfit.

New Paths, I love to explore

This is my new favorite necklace.  I love the bird that inspires flight.  The asymmetrical design is a new path for me in designs and I think I will follow my happy little bird down this path!  I get so excited when I discover a new type of jewelry design to explore, hope you like it as much as me.

Victoria Elizabeth's not so secret love.

  It's no secret that I love the color pink.  Although these bracelets are relatively simple, the vibrant coloring makes a statement.  These bracelets are well matched with a pair of pink earrings I made.  Check them out at Shizaru Designs.

Two of my favorite hobbies

I love to crochet and I love to make jewelry.  This necklace combines these two hobbies.  
I used this beautiful gold colored wire in place of yarn and crocheted this pattern with this wonderful assortment of colorful glass beads.
I like it!

Charm Bracelets - Better than DNA?

Maybe not better than DNA but so much cheaper than running a DNA test.  I'm not saying who this bracelet was made for, but if she ever dropped it at a crime scene it contains more than enough hints about her to find her.    
These are not only fun to make but fun to shop for, I love digging through all the charms and finding the perfect ones to fit the people I love.
