More jewelry from the "Jo Collection". Both of these necklaces are in pink/purple colours with silver and crystal accent beads. The bracelet is made w/ swarovski crystal pieces with pink and crystal glass beads. Here are some other examples of bracelets I made. The 2 silver bracelets w/ the paw charms each say "Sagan" and "Pepper". I saw ones like this in a catalog selling for nearly $60!!! I went to the bead store and spent about $10 in materials to make my own. The 2nd bracelet of blue cube beads is a lot easier to make than it looks and I want to make some more in different colours. The 4th blue bracelet is made with bugle beads and crystals in the centers, with a beaded loop clasp that goes over a blue glass bead. Much more time consuming and I probably wouldn't make another like this unless someone requested me to make one for them.
Swarovski crystal beads in graduated sizes with small silver bead spacers & matching earrings.
This one is a really funky, groovy charm necklace. I don't wear it often, but it's a fun piece.
I made a ton of "Y" necklaces in the 90's when they were popular and I actually did sell a bunch one summer at a small store in Marin County, where we lived. The one at the top is in red "picasso" beads with garnet beads, and the bottom one has purple & crystal glass beads & a Celtic knot charm.
Here's another set made with lampwork beads from Austin Hamilton.
I bought a watch face at Michael's Crafts and made watchbands that I can coordinate with what I'm wearing.
These are 2 of my fave pieces. The choker is made from memory wire and the only kind of choker I can wear b/c it flexes with you and I don't feel like I'm being strangled. It's made with Bali silver with a Bali silver & turquoise pendant. The one on the right is made with silver & fresh water pearls, size 8 glass beads & Bali silver beads. The pendant is supposed to be a dragon I think, silver w/ turquoise cabochons (it was sold for Bead & Button magazine's 10th anniversary, but I still can't really tell what it is).
