The first is a boro focal I made a few years ago that was
inspired by a sunset. For me to say I like this necklace would be like Kevin Bacon saying he's been in a few movies.
The next resulted from a custom order for jewelry from someone we'll call Miss Fabulous. Her name is actually Natalie, and she selected 3 sets of beads from which pendants would be made to be gifted to friends who hosted a shower for her~ effectively making her thoughtful and appreciative and kind and earning her the aforementioned moniker.
I loved the idea of my beads becoming such a sweet momento, and because there were some left over from the sets of 5 I decided to gift Natalie with a necklace of her own using 1 each of the three different beads so she'd also have a keepsake.
I couldn't very well leave the 3 lovely remainders orphaned, so naturally I made myself a pendant as well. Plus, you know, the first one turned out so awesome and coveting is a sin and I needed to stop with the sinning and that was the only way!
My 3rd Go~To is this loveliness:
I heart these beaded rings. They are shiny and therapeutic and versatile, and I've made several color combinations while sitting in bed watching Dexter.
Wait. Speaking of Dexter. I HEART Rita! Someone is SO fired.
This is the perfect delicate set (15s and 3mm crystals) for a dressy-casual dinner or for adding a little sparkle to kicking around town in a t-shirt and shorts. In fact, it goes pretty well with pajamas too~ not that I'm sitting here wearing that right now.
