Party Time coming up -April 10th, from 2-5 p.m.

Just a little note to let people know that I am hosting another jewellery party in our party room.

It should be fun.  Right now I am working on the party menu and the entertainment.  I will be sending out invitations via e-mail and for those who do not have e-mail, I shall be phoning them.

With Easter and Mother's Day coming up,  and the Spring-like weather (hopefully) in April, it is a good time to hold a party!

Enjoy your day, and thank you for dropping by.

Some beautiful creations using Swarovski beads and crystals

I really prefer working with Swarovski as they are so well made and so beautifully cut.  My second choice is working with Preciosa and Firepolish beads from Czechslovakia.  It gives me so much pleasure to create beauty using these different beads.

Here are two more creations for your consideration.

This delicate necklace is made with golden rings and mauve Swarovski beads.  It would look particularly nice in Spring.

What a lovely Easter gift that would make for someone special.

I particularly enjoy doing delicate, dainty designs

This sparkles as the light hits it - gorgeous, delicate and perfect for a gift

Leather crocheted cord with wooden beads or jewels

I love working with my hands and I decided to use some leather to add to my jewellery line.  There are some beautiful colours in leather.

I may make some bracelets as well. 

Here is a sample of what I have done.

Leather, wooden beads  (bottom row)
Leather and metallic pink beads

Turtle like bead and leather work(top one)
Wooden beads and leather work

Leather work and some wirework as well.

Ceylon beads, wirework and whirl at end

It was fun to do these and they make nice necklaces to wear for casual occasions. I made one for myself in tourquoise and many people have commented on it.

Plated silver rondelles, Black Bohemian beads with tourquoise teardrop

I thought I would do something out of the ordinary with this necklace.  Usually one sees teardrops on a plain chain but I thought it might be fun to make something which would be different and I personally like the results. I hope you will too!

Rose quartz stone, handwrapped in copper and silver plate wire

For those who prefer a chunky look, this creation would suit them.  I love the soft look of the rose quart stone and the silver and copper wire enhances it.

Hope you enjoy seeing it.

Finished another design this afternoon

Jewellery making is time consuming and needs good eye, hand co-ordination.  I enjoy it very much but find it a little hard on the eyes, especially since I love working with smaller, more petite beads.

The style today is more large chunky jewellery but that will not last forever and I think it will go back to delicate and dainty things in the near future.

Here is the design I finished today.  Hope you like it.

Copper small rounds with Swarovski periodot crystal necklace

This exquisite, dainty necklace would look good against a black dress or top.  20" necklace with barrel clasp, dangle adds about an inch on top of that.

Also, on a green sweater or top as well.

Peridot crystals, copper beads with matching dangle

Against a green background which really bring out the green peridot crystals.

Price not determined yet.

Thanks for dropping by.  Come back again for new designs.

Amethyst stone, wirewrapped.

I felt very creative this afternoon as the snow is falling heavily outside and the snow banks are getting higher by the minute.

I decided to wrap some of my gorgeous stones and this is the result of this afternoon's work.  I will be turning it into a necklace made of  Swarovski amethyst and pearls perhaps tomorrow.

This lovely stone is wrapped with non-tarnish silver wire.  Its stem parts are with Swarovski Amethyst crystals

This is shown against a white background.

This is my protype and it is still a work in progress.  Tomorrow, if I am still snowed in, I will do the necklace part of it which will be with Amethyst and pearls from Swarovski.

I will post it once it is all finished.

THIS ITEM IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE - SOLD.  If you are interested, please contact me at wseville7@gmail.com      It will not be exactly the same but will be unique as this one was.
