I ordered some watch faces in copper, silver tone and gold tone and incorporated my Egyptian coils. The gold one is made with jeweler's bronze. I think they are both lovely and there are so many other ways to incorporate wire as the band...just let your mind go free.

I am in almost done with this necklace....I need to add some links, a hook, and a cab - this was as special order and we have not decided on a focal yet...but I have put a couple of focals against the necklace. I created the bronze flower last week with bronze PMC. It has been patina'd, so is a little darker. The stone cab is a beautiful carnelian stone with reddish orange hues. We'll have to see what the client likes - she may have something altogether different in mind! Have a good weekend. Blessings, Anita

I thought I'd share some pictures of the best gifts life has given us - our grandchildren! Ashton & Braden are now 7 and almost 6 yrs of age. Miss Abbey (Summer Abigail) is 4 months!

Today I finished up three necklaces. The first is a rainbow of mauve, blue, and green in a multi-strand necklace, created with seed beads, tube beads, and more of Jeanne's lamp work beads set as the focal point of the necklace. I love this piece - great for summer. The second piece is also in mauves with stone chips and polished stone focals. A heavier chunky look, great for the individual who likes the look of natural stone. Great for summer or fall, I think. And lastly, everyone likes a simple black necklace - this one is done with sterling silver accents and a simply wrapped black focal bead. Which look appeals to you? I'd love to hear from you and your thoughts on these pieces! Thanks for looking. Blessings. Anita
Hi, everyone. I have some new things to show today! I have added three necklaces to my "Little Diva" line for the little ones in our lives. All were created with seed beads and a simple focal. Two were embellished with lampwork beads, created by my friend Jeanne. The third piece was embellished with pink and white floral porcelain beads.
