New Happy Jewelry

Three posts in a row, I'm on a roll. I wanted to show off some new jewelry that I made from some very fun pendants that I bought from Michaels. They are all from the Jennifer Heynan line. I think I may have purchased all of the pieces in the collection-they kept putting them on sale, what was I supposed to do? They are just so fun and they make me happy just by looking at them.

Most of these made their way to my Etsy shop and some are sitting in my jewelry box. :)

Bead Soup - Better Late than Never

So yeah, stomach bug, food poisoning, I don't know, whatever it was came on hard and fast and left me incapacitated. When mama goes down, the whole house is in an uproar and it usually takes a couple of days to get back on track. Anywho, I finally finished my piece. It's not exactly what I pictured, but I kinda like the way it turned out. I used the focal bead on top of a tassel of copper chain ( that tassel was originally supposed to be made with tiny orange beads, but I realized that was not my forte so I switched) added some wooden beads to the orange and white Czech glass and put the clasp on the side with the flower dangling next to it. I hope Michelle likes what I did with her beautiful beads and thanks to Lori for organizing another fun blog party!

Bead Soup

I have been remiss in not posting the adorable beads that my partner, Michelle Tucker sent to me for this round of the Bead Soup Party. I will say that it is not my fault and I will blame the taskmaster that is my second son who won't let me alone for a minute to go to the bathroom, much less some time to write.

But, he is sleeping so here are the goods. Lamp work beads handmade by Michelle, white leather, a handmade clasp and coordinating beads in orange and white. In a funny coincidence, I sent the exact same color combo to Michelle. You will have to come back and take a peak on Saturday to see what I made.
