A Crisp Fall Day!

It's absolutely FREEZING outside! I said crisp, I was mistaken! The sun feels so nice when it beats on me through the window, but man it's definitely not a good day to be outside photographing jewelry! I'm somewhat sad today because I dropped my kittens off this morning to be neutered, and I miss them so much. I cried all the way home. I hope they are doing ok, and not angry with me! I'll give them lots of love when they come home this afternoon.

On a more positive note, I made some jewelry last night! YAY! These gorgeous glass beads were made by Melissa Rediger and they are SO pretty in person. The sun was casting lots of shadows this morning so I had to lighten them up in Photoshop to reveal their true colors. I have accented these beads with beautiful Swarovski rings in Copper and Green and added hand wrapped Swarovski Crystal charms in Topaz, Smoked Topaz, and Olivine. It is finished with an heirloom toggle clasp. I made the matching earrings, with really pretty silver bead caps, and then I had 1 bead left over. So I made a matching pendant, with another green Swarovski Ring, matching crystals and strung it on Sterling Silver wire. This is such a great set! I hope you love it as much as I do! Melissa, these beads are so pretty! I may need more in the future! :) These are going up on Etsy now! Go check them out!

  1. Really nice set, Kristen! I'm enjoying thevery same colors right now myself. BTW: I added a bunch of new items to my supply shop including sterling silver findings. Stop by if you get a chance: Oh, and stop by my blog too, lot's of new stuff there as well. And the last 2 days we've got a cold spell here in Fl. (I'm in jeans and long sleeves today!)
