Metallics, in hopes of SUN!

You can see from the colors I have chosen to design with today that I am desperately trying to bring on the SUN! I'll tell you what, it isn't working. We are expecting another few days of rain and perhaps a hint of sun over the weekend. I'm trying to pull my act together and make myself cheerful by using metallics to brighten the mood!
Glass beads made by Rufusandroxy in an awesome blue with metallic dots! Will be listed on Etsy tonight!

I love Melissa's beads and when I saw these on her website, I knew I had to have them. They are AWESOME! A blend of a whole bunch of colors and metallic shimmer. I combined these with a set of Deb Rosely's boro beads that I had that were waiting for the right piece. It's like they were made for each other, a perfect match! Loads of Bali Silver in here also! Will be listed on 1000 Markets tonight!

Another of Melissa's bent beads. Brown/copper Swarovski Crystals and Bali rings that move around and make noise when you wear the bracelet. I love the "ching-ching" sound in my bracelets! This one will be up on Etsy!

Yeah... you know who made these beads, right? Catherine Ondrey! I love them. They remind me of a fruit salad made with Watermelon, Cantaloupe, and Honey Dew... YUM!
Going up on 1000 Markets!

Rufusandroxy Metallic blue glass beads with Volcano and Indigo Swarovski Crystals and Panten beads. Going on Etsy!

And finally this was a special order for one of my customers who will be wearing a black and white toile dress to a rehearsal dinner over the weekend. I made a necklace and bracelet/earring set with Black and White Swarovski pearls and silver. She loved it! I can't wait to see a picture of the set with the dress, she promised to send me one after the wedding. :)

Since all we have to look forward to for the rest of the week is rain, I guess there will be many more opportunities for me to design jewels! Stay tuned for more to come tomorrow!
