I had an "A-HA" moment!

OK so I was busy yesterday creating some beautiful things! I am focusing this weekend on restocking one of the shops I have jewelry in to get ready for the Holiday's and they like earrings. So I made earrings! Plus this killer necklace! I ran out to the bead store this morning because I had another idea, but they didn't have what I needed so I'll need to try to find it online. I have many new things coming so I'll try to get photo's up asap!
The hubby and I are celebrating our 13th Wedding Anniversary tomorrow! My mom offered to come over and babysit tonight so that we can go out for a nice quiet dinner. I'm going to steal a line from my friend Cathy who went out to dinner with her hubby and no children last week and pointed out that it was nice to go out and eat without having to ask anyone to "take 3 more bites"! Looking forward to a nice quiet evening out! Olive Garden, here we come!
The A-HA moment comes in here... I always love to search online for new things to put in my designs. I have seen these spacers being used in a few lovely designs and I thought to myself, I have to have them. Well I've been looking for them for MONTHS! MONTHS I tell you! I thought that they were Hill Tribe Silver or something, but a couple weeks ago, I was reading one of my favorite blogs (Silver Parrot) and she posted a picture of these silver spacers that she found on Etsy. Uh, HELLO? That's exactly what I've been looking for!!! So I finally got my hands on some and I'm going back for more, I love them. Love. Thanks KJ, I am so glad you shared, because I have been going out of my mind looking for them! They do add some beautiful shine to my designs.
This one is called "Golden Raisin". These are Melissa's beautiful glass beads, and I got a whole strand of them in different colors, perfect for earrings!
"Maple Walnut" (the color reminds me of the ice cream!) I made my own circle charm dangles at the bottom of these, and they hang from White Topaz Gemstone Earwires.
"Iced Green" - These hang from Silver Earwires and have some beautiful Bali Bead Caps in addition to the Swarovski and handmade circle charms.
"Pumpkin Patch" - Made with beautiful glass pumpkins made by Maureen of Pumpkin Hill Beads. I paired these with some of Melissa's beads and hung them from Saki Silver Earwires. Love these!!

More to come, tomorrow is another day! Hope you enjoy your Saturday!


  1. ROFL! OMG - someone actually reads my blog and uses the information I post. I'm totally stoked. Glad I could help and I love, love, love that necklace. Y'know, in case you wanted to gift a helpful blog writer or something ;-) (only kidding)
