Hustle...ing and Bustle...ing!

I don't even think that those are real words but that's what I am doing! Very busy trying to pull myself together for so many things. I have earrings to make and ship to several different places in the next week and I'm feeling overwhelmed! Ann is coming over today to sit with me. It keeps me on task, and motivated! Here are a few of the new things I've been working on...

These are my new favorites! On Sunday I was feeling very uninspired. So I helped my husband clean the garage, the shed and the backyard in preparation of the winter snow. I worked so hard and got everything clean enough to where I could get my car in the garage again! When I came inside, I took a nice hot shower and just let my thoughts wander. Then I sat down and made these! They are handwrapped with Smoky Quartz and Tourmaline gemstones. They are a good weight too. Not too heavy or light. Feels great in the ears!
I'm currently taking custom orders for these now, and will be able to make a few pairs with the supplies that I have left. If you're interested let me know. I can customize these with other materials as well, which is what I'll be doing today so look for more variety tomorrow!

I made a couple pairs of these very simple but VERY sparkly little earrings! Great for the holiday's!

This pair features some pretty green and pink lampwork beads from Melissa of Sea of Glass. I made some circle charms to hang below the cluster of Swarovski Crystals and Cat's eye!

These are much prettier in person. The sun is hard to work with in the winter months, very bright and casts a lot of shadows. There are actually purple cats eye donuts in these along with glass flowers and Amethyst Swarovski Crystals.

And here is "Autumn's Last Look"...
I am trying to get away from the Autumn colors and into more winter (and dare I say Spring) colors. Here's a beautiful Chinook Pendant accented by Smoky Quartz briolletes and roundells, some czech glass pieces, and silver spacers. There are silver leaves dangling near the pendant and it's finished with a gorgeous silver leaf toggle clasp.

Back to work today on getting more earrings made! Check back for more photo's to come tomorrow! Enjoy your Tuesday!


  1. You've got some beautiful things here! Love the necklace and the pink/green earrings in particular.

  2. Gorgeous, simply gorgeous! I love them all, but my favorites are the first pair of earrings and that yummy necklace I envy the lucky lady who ends up with one of your treasures in her stocking!

  3. Thanks so much ladies!! I made more of that first style today, in Reds, Greens and another to match that set above! They are my new favorite!

  4. Oooh, love what you did with the pendant! :)
