I hope everyone is having a great week!! I just got confirmation that I will have a booth at the PrimeXpo Gem, Jewelry and Gift Show in Timonium, MD March 30, 31 and April 1st!! Hope to see you guys there!!!
What does that mean??? I'm working like crazy to get my inventory up!! Here are some of my latest pieces...I would love to hear what you think!

Some hearts for Valentine's Day!!! I will be making more of these so there is a good selection before February 14 :)

These necklaces are adjustable from 16-17 inches and would compliment any outfit...they look fantastic on!!

Happy Tuesday

I'm feeling a bit under the weather today ....uughh I hate cold and flu season!! but I did manage to get to the studio today to make some beads and I put together a few pieces. Hope you enjoy!!!
My goal is to get another wrap bracelet completed today too....wish me luck!! I have beautiful lime green beads that would look fantastic with my chocolate brown leather, or I have really nice white beads that would look great with the black....decisions, decisions....

Busy Day

I had a fantastic time with Tim at Mcfadden Art Glass today!! He was really helpful and patient and taught me so much that I am hoping to translate over to my torch work :)
I must tell you, I'm really really considering taking his 4 week course to learn furnace work.....I'm just really afraid of becoming addicted to another form of working with glass...and lets be honest...it's not a "cheap" venture LOL :)
I can't wait to show you what we made....I should be able to go back out there Friday and pick them up :)
If you live in the area, it's a MUST SEE place!!! His work is amazing and this Friday is "date night" there - you can grab a drink at the glass grill next door and watch him work!! Lots of fun!! Scott and I went to a date night about a year ago and really had a great time!

I did manage to get a little work done at my studio....Here is one of the things I made. I call it Red Coral Reef :) Scott and I love to scuba dive and just love anything about the ocean! The other night we were watching Wild Pacific, which is a great show about the Pacific Ocean and they were doing an episode about how the coral reefs and islands in the Pacific were made. There were so many great shots of the amazing reefs which inspired me to bring a little coral to my jewelry :)
Enjoy :)

Fun and Funky Earrings and Pendants

It's been a busy week and I have a few new things to show you.
These first pair of earrings are hands down my favorite so far....they are 40mm hoops with two of my hollow bubble beads filled with over 600 (yes 600!!) loose AAA grade cubic zirconias! These earrings shine!!! They are absolutely beautiful and will BLING up any outfit! I love them!
How much fun are these??? Great with blue jeans :)
I'm filling everything with CZ's I can get my hands on LOL....Here are one of my hollow pendants filled with tiny beautiful cubic Zirconias.
And finally another pendant. This one is in amazing greens!
I'm really excited to tell you I am taking a class this Tuesday with McFadden Art Glass!! Should be fun and I will definitely post pictures of what I make :)

It was another great day at my shop and studio!! I needed about 8 more hours though to get through everything on my "to do" list....sheesh would it be wrong to take a sick day from work tomorrow so I can spend the whole day at the studio :) lol...just kidding :)

Anyway.......I would like to introduce my New Bubbangles!!!! These earrings are my hollow bubble beads filled with about 100 cubic zirconias each!!! They are a bear to photograph, but are absolutely amazing with infinite sparkles in the sunlight!!! I'm so excited about them and an absolutely thrilled with how they turned out!

Would love to know what you think :)
Here is another version of my Bubbangles in an adorable little pendant.
I was able to put together a few more Feng Shui Suncatchers today too.....I'm loving how these look in the natural light too!

and a cute little pair of feather earrings that I forgot to photograph yesterday.
Well, now I'm off to watch the Steelers game! I hope you all had a great weekend!

Hard at Work

I had a fantastic day in the studio today and met some new fantastic customers!! I was up all night last night....I couldn't sleep...you see, I was beyond excited about a new idea and can't wait to show you all!!! Fingers crossed, if all goes well I will be able to give you a sneak preview to a new line I'm starting in tomorrow's post. I made the beads today and hopefully I can execute my idea....it always works out so nicely in my mind, but at times the actual putting together of the idea falls short...oh I'm so hopeful I can pull it off :)
In the meantime....here are some new items!!
As a side note....I promise to get more products in my online shop!! So many of you are asking about items and I will do my best to get my online presence up to date!!! Please check back and don't give up on me :)

another wrap bracelet...I'm really loving how these look on!!! This red is yummy!
I'm super excited about my new Feng Shui Suncatchers!!!! This beautiful 30mm genuine Swarovski crystal is all dolled up with my beads!!! I made a bunch of beads today to finish more of these...they are so stunning in a window!!!
