New Metal Stamped Pieces

I know I probably really need to focus on one particular type of jewelry making, find my "niche"so to speak.  Apparently that is how to make my jewelry making business successful...  But I love changing things up, trying new techniques, etc.  This week I've been making some metal stamped pieces, then adding a heat patina with my micro torch.  Such a fascinating process! 

Some of the new pieces in my shop:

I also got out the resin.....

I painted this sand dollar pendant with metal patina, then I added a resin coating:

So ready to go to the beach!!!

Keeping Busy.....

New Artisan Jewelry

With everything going on in the world right now, it has been very difficult for me to take a "time out" from reality and just create.  I do have some recent creations from the stockpile of artisan beads in my collection, including several new pieces featuring polymer clay beads by Humblebeads, like this wire-wrapped bracelet:

And this fun coastal earring and bracelet set:

As well as a few necklaces too!

You can find all of these in my Etsy shop, Artisan Section.

Happy New Year! Valentine's Day Sale!

Wow, January is almost over!  The weather here in Michigan actually hasn't been too bad, no sub-zero temperatures to contend with so far this winter, and not much snow, other than the 6 inches we got last weekend.  I've been working on all sorts of different projects this month, feeling a little more creative than usual I guess!  

A few of my recent creations:

Layered Seed Bead Necklace Set

Toes in the Sand, Wine in my Hand Garnet Bracelet

Millefiori Daisy Fused Glass Pendant

Petoskey Stone and Amazonite Necklace

Believe Starfish Resin Pendant

Copper Heart Earrings

Artisan Beads

Looking through my stash of supplies the other day, I realized I have a LARGE amount of artisan components I have collected over the years.  I have been collecting gorgeous pieces from Humblebeads, Gaea, Anne Gardanne, Beadgoodies, Mandrel Beads, and more!  Like many other beaders, quilters, scrapbookers, etc., who hoard their supplies, I have been saving these special pieces for the "perfect" creation.  I have decided to challenge myself to create with these pieces so others can enjoy them too!  Here are a few of my newest creations, along with some other pieces currently in my Etsy shop:
