I have been featured in two Treasuries!

I was pleasantly surprised to receive two different convos saying I was featured in a treasury! The first one is called "metals and stone..." by expressions123. The Mystic Silver Blue Quartz gemstone beads from my store are featured here.

The other treasury is called "It's Black... It's White...... It might be Gray...." by curator paperNplastic. The white moonstone round cabochon is featured in this one.

Suppliers are rarely featured in treasuries so I was really surprised to be featured in not one, but three treasuries this week. Thank you ladies!!

I received some professional pictures from my beautiful bridal customer Gladys! Doesn't she look lovely?

Gladys wanted an
ivory pearl and rhinestone bracelet and earrings set for her romantic gown. She also requested the set to be made using gold metal. I made her jewelry using Freshwater pearls, Cubic Zirconia components and gold filled and gold plated parts.

I had a great time interacting with the bride and making this jewelry! I hope that you like them too! A million thanks to the generous bride for sending me these pictures! Thank you Gladys!

Please check out my other Bridal pictures here.

J. Beth Design - Be You, Be Free

I get super excited every time a customer of mine shows me a picture of what they have created with my beads. So , when I received a message from the very talented Johannah of J. Beth Design, I had to share her creation with you!

Johannah bought these gorgeous faceted 3-D Teardrop Emerald Briolette Beads.

She made these lovely Lucky Charms earrings with those briolette.

Johannah describes that Emeralds are the birthstone for May and is said to bring good luck. She hand-shaped the hoops and added the deep rich faceted Emeralds and Thai sterling silver hammered charms.

is not only an artisan jewelry designer, but her jewelry is a little unconventional and abstract. Be you, be free amongst the wonderful collection of J. Beth Design!

My Necklace from Sleepy Moon Design also arrived!!

The vivacious Ngan of eNVe Designs has a regular featured artist column on her fabulous blog, where Zoe of Sleepy Moon Design was featured in June.

Zoe was giving away this Green Onyx Suspension Necklace to one lucky winner! And guess what? I won!! I just received the necklace all the way from Canada.

Zoe describes this necklace as "made with this bright green onyx gemstone roundels for a bright burst of colour. The gemstones are all in a neat little row that is suspended from a dainty sterling silver chain. I also added some green onyx accents by the clasp.

The suspension necklaces got their name because they remind me of a suspension bridge and its inherent fragility. "

You can see more suspension necklaces at Zoe's Etsy Store here.

I wore this necklace immediately after taking it out of the bubble wrap in the afternoon...and then wore it out to dinner and a movie with my DH! After all it was Saturday night! The necklace is so lightweight and totally non-fussy. I cannot wear heavy jewelry for a long time, but this is one of those all-time wear pieces.

I love how the necklace is finished with two green onyx at the back next to the clasp. This provides for a lovely look when the hair is worn up. Pretty, pretty, pretty!

The onyx is such a beautiful fresh green color that I absolutely love this necklace! Thank you so much Zoe!!
