Mt. Rainier and Lenticular Clouds - Dec. 2008 copyright: JMM

April 11, 2012


I've been so busy trying new crafties that my jewelry-making has fallen by the wayside!  I got inspired to finally make something with the pretty pentacle pendant I bought at the King Richard's Faire last fall!  

Lavender and clear Swarovski crystal, with silver flower and tube beads.

This one was inspired by a friend's photos of her recent trip to the Caribbean.
Multicoloured cathedral glass & Swarovski crystal

This necklace is about 22" or 23" long.  I don't usually make them this long, but will be trying some different lengths.  

The pendant is a Venetian glass bead with gold flakes in it.

It's hard to tell but these glass beads are the most incredible shade of deep purple.  (Which also had me singing "Deep Purple" by Donny & Marie Osmond all day).

Sorry for the bad pics but my camera battery quit on me!


  1. Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. I answered your question over there (I still haven't worked out the best way to reply to comments, but I replied over there!)

    These are so beautiful! I loved them :)

    I think the 3rd one down is my favourite, I love the turquoise 'drop' stone :0)

  4. You know how I feel about your jewellery :)

  5. Jojo, despite your kind wishes, I have only visited my grandbabies through the magic of the intertubes... but as I said at my blog, HOPEFULLY soon.

    Those are just beee-yoo-ti-fulll!!! I love the dark purple beads and the Venetian... just so pretty. I will have to get more from you if I EVER get a job again! I still get compliments on the one I bought. It has become one of my favorite things to wear. :)

    TALENT = you haz it.

  6. I love your jewelries! I wish I can make something like that. But knowing me, I don't think I'm able to make even a wind chime. LOL

  8. Pretty things. I like blue. I'm trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs this month.

  9. Pretty work!
    While living in NY we went every summer starting in 1970 but moved south in 2002. Went back to the Cape in June of's a wild trip to get there from South Carolina. Almost came up this summer but plans have changed.One day!

  10. Love the pentacle pendant! They are all so pretty though. Jewelry making is something I've never been able to do.

  11. I love the aquamarine beads. Such a pretty colour. Have you made any pieces with you beach glass?

  12. I am not into jewelry much at all, but I do like to admire it, especially anything that is purple or turquois. I really like Indian jewelry.

  13. WOW, that is some really gorgeous work! Like others have commented, I can't make stuff, so I really do envy those, like you, who can. Plus, I dig the colors you used. Really lovely!
