Well, it is true. The stones made me do it. I was searching my bead cabinet for some misplaced seed beads, when I came across a bag of mixed odd stones. I had put it away not knowing what I would make of them. I can’t make a pair of earrings with one stone and, in the past, all my necklaces has been with many beads.
But now that I found it, I knew exactly what to do! Chain choker necklaces with single stones.
This is the result, five chain chokers with five different stones. From left to right: white howlite, purple amethyst. green moss agate, clear quartz and brown agate.
The seed beads I was looking for? Still have not found them.
I hope to have the chokers in my shop soon!
New statement bracelets
I had the idea to make statement bracelets by layering memory wire into a sort of cuff bracelet. And once I got going I almost couldn’t stop. This is how my first ones turned out.
Still stuck on layers as you can see! 🙂
These bracelets will be in my shop soon!
Stuck on layers
I finished the new necklaces that I told you about last week, and also made some others while I was at it. And all of them turned out layered. 🙂
New earring design
I have often made necklaces with layers, but my earrings are usually simpler. I thought it was a good idea to make some earrings with layers too and came up with a new design.
Two chains with beads, and to start with made them in five colours. Which is your favourite?
I hope to have them available in my shop soon!
When I wrote my post about the bib necklaces that were a work in progress two months ago, I could never dream it would take me this long to finish them. But now finally I am ready to put them back in my Etsy shop!
What do you think? Any favourite? ♡
Old idea got a new life
I have not made chokers for a long time. But thanks to a customer asking me about a different bead for one of my designs in the shop, I realised I could make more new choker necklaces by combining other beads.
I could not stop myself from buying a big bag of these beads when I found them in a shop. I thought they almost looked like stones. The ceramic beads have different shapes and sizes, and come in three colours – turquoise, blue and black.
So I made those new earrings in a large hoop style. Actually I made one more pair, that I kept for myself. 🙂
And I had already made new long ones with crystals, so showing you them too.
I hop to have all of these in the shop soon!
These are the three long chain necklaces I made the other week, finally finished and photographed. Two chains with pearls, four chains with hematites and one chain with matte agates.
I hope to have them all in the shop soon!
I know. It has been a long time since I posted anything. But I am here now, and I have a bunch of bib necklaces to show you.
I was sure that my favorite of these statement necklaces would be the chain bib with quartz stones but, to my surprise, I really like the pearl bib with mixed warm colors. 🙂
Hope to put this in the shop soon, but need a day with better light to take more pictures.
