GOLDFISH NECKLACE. The crocheted necklace is made of both metallic core and matte e-beads, 6 mm Swarovski crystals, Size 8 orange beads, and Czech pressed glass floral and leaf beads. All were hand strung to satisfy my strange brain’s desire for “randomness” and crocheted on heavy cotton cord. Bali bead caps and sterling toggle clasp round out the basic necklace. I should mention I crocheted this with a 3 beads per round so this is much smaller diameter piece than I’ve made in the past.
The tassel is made on 19 strand beading wire woven through the necklace and crimped. The three art beads were worked in randomly and all ends were crimped for finishing. $189.00
A collection of some glass beads from myself and from a few other artists strung with Swarovski crystals in blue and AB, Bali and sterling. This is generous sized bracelet measuing 8.5″ between the clasps. My own wrist is exactly 7″ and this bracelet drapes halfway over my palm and can be slid off without opening the toggle. $79
The colors of the chakra can be used for meditation or in yogic practices. It is believed that – by concentrating on a color corresponding to a specific body part, healing can be achieved. The colors and their representations in the body are:
Red = Base Chakra
While these beads were made with meditative intent, they can also serve as just a happy rainbow of colors on your bracelet or necklace.
These 7 Big Hole Glass Beads are a basic donut shape and measure 5 mm hole to hole x 12 mm wide. $56.00for the set of made to order beads. The Pandora is not included.
I’ve always just loved a simple bead I can toss on a chain and just go. The beads I like are always symbolic of my mood. And since I’m often out and about with my pup, I decided to make a puppy paw bead. My favorite dog t-shirt reads “When I see a paw print, I see a heart and four arms reaching out to love me.” So naturally, I had to make the paws heart-shaped!
Shown on one of my friction clasp necklaces (sold separately), this bead was made on a 1/16th mandrel. 7 mm x 14mm $6.00 or $10 with the silver 18″ chain.
That rat is at it again! I made a number of these to take to a fundraiser for kids and only came home with two! Mouse ears wrapped with anodized black steel wire and Jet AB Swarovski crystal all hanging on a black silicone necklace. A close up of just the bead is below.
One is slightly bigger than the other: 21mm (including wire bail & crystal dangle) vs. 23 mm. Rubber necklace is 18″ long. $13 each or take both for $21.00
One of my favorite t-shirts reads: When I look at a paw print, I see an upside down heart with four arms reaching out to love me. This big hole bead features four paw prints…deliberately made to look like hearts. One melted in a little too much, hence it’s bargain price.
$4 – 15 mm x 6mm. Hole is 5.3 mm
This is a really stunning, eye-catching necklace! It was one of my Art Bead Scene entries last year and you can read about it here. I often keep things that took me considerable time and effort just to admire them. I often don’t feel I’m “ready” to part with them but… a girl has to make a living.
In addition to the water lily focal and lily pads – made by me, this necklace features a variety of green, pink, purple and blue handmade lampwork beads by a number of other artists. There are almost 100 genuine Swarovski crystals and a smattering of Bali silver and E beads. This piece was inspired by the painting Water Lilies by Monet. The perfect gift for a woman who loves fun, unique jewelry and art! $145.00
