Back with a vengeance

So after a few hundred years spent dealing with various uninteresting things I won't list here so as not to bore you to death, I'm back. Yay. :)
Without further ado, here's some eye candy.

Another pair of earrings featuring basha beads, plus lovely lampwork headpins and white ceramic beads. All handmade! 

In a different style... old bits from old broken jewelry, rhinestone balls, bone beads, baroque drops. Sterling silver hooks with rhinestones.

The below were made following fancy Marina's technique for resin drops/charms. I used replicas of Fra Angelico's paintings and added polymer nuggets that I made. Yup. Good thing that I was going for the rugged look there, because for the life of me, I swear I can't make a smooth, regular bead with clay.  I'm hopeless.

 My dad said he liked those.  That's saying something, trust me.  I'm tickled pink!

 This one was made using a focal from B'Sue boutiques.  Lots of patinas and sanding and stuff...  On the neckline, green beads of all kinds, lucite, turquoise, anoter semiprecious stone I can't remember the name of, resin.

The necklace below is a bit of a weird one.  I made it for my friend Lisa - the focal is an old tin filled with sodalite and resin, with an amethyst drop, lucite, sari ribbons. On the neckline, old chains, ethnic/tribal beads, vintage lucite. Oh, and a bit that came off of a rosary chain.

Next, our new game:  what the f** are those?

Two guesses.

The focals are from Petra's shop, of course (here)

Another weird one - hand formed metal, decoupaged, with an old coin and rhinestones coming from an old brooch.

A big ring.. huge... enormous...
 All sorts of shiny goodies thrown in there.

Now for some more earrings...  repurposed resin beads coming from a broken necklace, and drops from Numinosity beads

Their twins, this time using a pair of beads from Harry's shop.  Don't you just love those raku beauties??

Another of Harry's creation below... the crow...  I put inside an old pillbox. Pill box? Pillbox?  Hmmm.
The chain is a mix of labradorite smooth chips, abalone and Czech glass. I don't know why it looks so orangey - it's rusty black, actually. Must be the flash from the camera.

For the necklace below, I have yet again to thank Marina - the amazing angelite druzy was among the ton of beads I bought from her to make my wedding necklace.
I put it on a simple, sturdy brass chain, so as not to destract from the focal.

More dangles from Petra's shop.. with a pair of gorgeous mala beads, with gold leafing.  Copper connector, copper chain, copper everything on those.

Statement earrings featuring a big focal (sodalite and semi-precious chips in golden resin), drops from Petra, baroque pearly drops.

Another pair of statement earrings, in a similar style. The rectangle brass containers are from Bsueboutiques. Inside, glass beads and resin roses.  The dangles feature beads from Nat's teasure trove (Grubbi), among others.

And lastly, vintage looking earrings..  the lucite drops are actually vintage, but that's it. :)

Stay tuned for the giveaway, coming very soon.  xxxx
