Something I made for me.

I took a new picture of it with my new camera.  I think perhaps it is more clear now.

Wirewrapped pendant with green seedbeads.  Necklace part is pearls and green seedbeads.

I wear this protype often as it goes with many different outfits.  It is not for sale.

 I love this necklace but it took hours and hours to make.

New arrivals at Arts Hamilton

I took some of my creations in to Arts Hamilton today.  Should you be in the market for children's jewellery, or jewellery for adults, please feel free to drop in to Arts Hamilton on King Street East (near Wellington).

They are also open on Saturdays until 5 p.m.

For customs orders, please contact me at   wseville7@gmail.com

I also can do custom orders of  matching mother/daughter jewellery.  It would be so much fun to make a matching set for you.

Have a great day!

Creatively yours,

Children's jewellery

I was asked to consider making children's jewellery a few months ago, and today my son came by and happened to mention that a young mother is having difficulty in finding good quality jewellery for her young daughter.

She does not like the gaudy stuff sold at the dollar store as she wants it to be kept as a keepsake later on.

That was confirmation for me to start a new children's line.

I will be selling some of my children's jewellery at Arts Hamilton, which is located near Wellington and King Street East in Hamilton, Ontario.  I also hope to have the time to make some for my jewellery party which I plan to have in the Spring. 

Thanks for reading my blog. I love this idea.  As a former day care teacher, I always enjoyed working with children and marrying two loves together is ideal!  (Jewellery and children).

Have a great day!

If any of my readers is interested in children's jewellery, please feel free to drop me a line at wseville7@gmail.com

The Rebirth of Long-Form Journalism — Great Writing — Utne Reader

Where you can see my jewellery

Arts Hamilton, King Street East close to Wellington, is where I have my jewellery displayed.  I shall be bringing in some new designs in the near future.  It is also my hope to have a jewellery party in the Spring which will have entertainment as well.

I also advertise in Perspectives Magazine which is both an on-line publication and available in hard copy.

I also do custom design, upon request.

Some of my customers have had custom design pieces done and it gives me great pleasure to see them wearing my designs.

Thanks for dropping by and have a great day!

Swarovski pearls for pierced ears

Swarovski makes beautiful gemstones and pearls and as I enjoy elegance myself, I usually use their wonderful gems to handcraft my jewellery.

It is a pleasure to work with such materials and worth spending my time crafting these gems into wearable art.

Swarovski Pearls - nickel free ear wires

$54.00 Canadian plus shipping and handling.

These creations are heading to Arts Hamilton

I have been very happy with my sales there and will be sending more things their way to display in their cozy little office.

Ceylon pearls (pink) on nickle free earwires

Just a cute little pair of earrings which can be worn all the time.

Ceylon pearl earrings

Plastic beads done as a choker with a wirework dangle.

This little item would suit a summer dress or blouse and set off the neck nicely.

If you look closely at the back of the choker, you will see a litle ball.  To open the necklace to wear, unscrew the ball, put it on and screw it back in.  Voila, the necklace is secure on the neck.

Lightweight but strong.

This week's new creation

What an exercise in frustration this was.  If I weren't so stubborn, I would have given up on this project.  Very hard on the eyes, need nerves of steel and so much patience!

The end result is very nice indeed but it will be quite some time before I attempt another one like it!

The pendant stone is embellished with golden coloured wire and green seed beads.  It reminds me of a gift.

The necklace part is seed beads which need to be threaded on one by one.  As you can imagine, it is a very long process. 

It sure was a project which helped me develop more patience!

Handcrafted copper chain with Swarovski topaz teardrop

This design required a lot of patience and time to do.  I think the look is quite different from what you can find in a jewellery store.  I like it myself

Handcrafted chain (copper)

A close up of the Topaz teardrop

A fragile looking clasp but very strong and different.
It was interesting to make but takes a long time to do.  It will fit over a person's head.

Swarovski dark brown and honey coloured pierced earrings

These fabulous jewels would look gorgeous with a brown suit or dress. 

Swarovski crystals, dark brown and golden honey - for pierced ears. 

Nickel free earwires make this pair of earrings wearable for most women.  I only use nickel free earwires as I cannot wear anything with nickel in it myself.

This is a good price for Swarovski crystal earrings  $54.00 Canadian plus shipping and handling.

I am now tax exempt which is nice and I pass this saving on to my customers.

Swarovski peridot and crystal beads with clip on ear wires.

These earrings would look lovely gracing the ears of very feminine women. 

A good buy at $54.00 Canadian plus shipping and handling .

A pendant I made which looks like a present

Save money, just add your own chain

Brown toned stone with golden coloured wire and green seed beads

I thought I would make some pendants without chains so that people could save money and use their own chains.

Price undetermined as yet.
