Hello my friends! Today I want to show you a new design. Yes, earrings!
I feel more confortable creating bracelets and necklaces. But for this occasion, I decided to create this design. The main reason why I create it is for a basic metalsmith class I took with Monique Michel, a local artist with more than 30 years in the jewelry design industry. And it was one of the most pleasant experiences I’ve had.
The butterflies are made of brass ( I cute them out by hand, using a jewelers saw) and soldered to a 20ga half hard sterling silver wire. And finally, add czech beads. I like them so much 🙂 What you do think?
Take photos to earrings it’s a little bit tricky and I know I need a little bit more of practice. But that’s a topic for another day. 🙂
I’m planning to add some earwires to my next Etsy shop update, that will be March 31, 2016 @ 5:00 PM (Eastern Time)
“Still Life with Pussy Willows” is the name of this beautiful painting, create by Taisia K. Afonina a well renowned Russian Artist. This is kind of painting that I love and enjoy most, specially for the flowers, the colours and that feeling of a peaceful home. It’s a reminder that spring has arrive with colours, flowers and birds.
And talking about colours, here’s the color pallet for this challenge.
Just perfect! 🙂 Beautiful color combination. Now.. I initially told you that I’m participating for this challenge, right? ABS, has two categories; jewelry entries and beads. And I design one art bead, in two different color for this challenge and a bracelet.
Let’s see first the art beads..
Lovely! Right? A create another with a dusty teal color.
Those are my art beads entries for the challenge. And now, I want to show you my jewelry design..
This is my beautiful bracelet made with wire, art beads and a lovely bird connector. I create this design with art ceramic and lampwork beads from Caroline Dewison – Blueberribeads (I’ve been hoarding those beads for a long time ago) Beautiful and unique fabric from Liberty Haberdashery and some of my enamelled beads with my signature bird bracelet conector, made of brass.
Well, this is all for now. I hope you had fun! 🙂
See you, until the next post!

I signed up to a new challenge The Bead Peeps Swap and Hop; hosted by a wonderful Facebook group that I really enjoy so much. Recently the partners was announced and I have the honor to be paired with a wonderful and super talented lady Nan Smith.
Nan is from Canada and she is the host of My Country Blog Hop, that I participated the last year and really enjoyed. She has been making jewelry for 4 years and recently start to making beads and components in polymer clay. Now she said, she is addicted to polymer clay! I think everybody has something to be addicted or feel in love with.
Nan worked as a nurse for 38 years and now she is retired. So she have good time to make polymer clay beads and beautiful jewelry…. and may the Lord gives her much more 🙂
I didn’t visit Canada yet (who know… someday) but I always remember an oral report that I have to make for school. And the first time that I saw the flag of Canada, I fall in love with that beautiful maple leaf. I don’t know why; but the image always comes to my mind.
Thats all for now, but stay tuned to my next post. I’ll been “showing” what I’ll be sending to my lovely partner but Shhhhhhh!!! she does not find out. It will be a secret between us!! :))))
Coquí….. Wow!!!! It has been a while since my last post 🙁 So, I think it’s time to put the things in place and start to writing again. A lot of things happened during this time (and I like to share in another post) But for now I want to show you my last Etsy shop for this year!!
You may notice a few changes… Yeah, I change the background for the pictures and I incorporate new techniques 🙂
Thank you so much for stopping by !! Mery Xmas and Happy New Year!! 🙂
