Secret Stash...

Here are a few pictures of the new pieces that I made today! The first is called "Poolside", which is the name of the beads made by Melissa Rediger! I LOVE these beads! I have been saving them for myself, but since I have been making so much jewelry lately, I've had to dig into my SECRET stash and now I have to share! :) Melissa, if you are reading this... these beads ROCK! I made a necklace, bracelet and matching earrings. This set took a lot of time as I wire wrapped all the links myself and used pewter clover links as well to make sort of a delicate "chain" look. It's so pretty! The bracelet is a bent bead and it just sits so comfortably on the wrist.

The second piece is called "Garden Retreat". This bead is truly a masterpiece, made by Torchsong Glassworks (A local glass artist). I feel so calm when I stare into this bead. The layers of colors and flowers are mesmorizing! I made one of these pendants for myself a while back, inspired by the Wire Style Magazine that came out in August and I have been wanting to make another one for all of you! I love how it came out... what do you think?


  1. Really nice, I favor the first set; I love how you connected and wire wrapped the whole necklace. I really like the bracelet bead too. (Might have to get one for myself!)

  2. WOW!!! Love the new work you have been making. If I remember correctly, you have had those beads for awhile ;) Great job! I sent the bent bead out to you a couple days ago ~ so sorry about that.
