New Necklaces

Here are some of the necklaces I made over Memorial Day weekend. I am adding them to the stockpile I am now building up. It's taking me awhile to do all this!! The photography alone takes hours and hours. But once it's all done, I can finally open an Etsy account. These will be up for sale, and are not part of my personal stash. I will post pics of the stuff I made for myself next. As always, click on the pics for a more detailed view. The stones are so pretty. Photos don't do them justice.

Mixed stone rhodonite, snowflake obsidian, sodalite, poppy jasper, leopard skin jasper, white howlite, amazonite & rose quartz
Mixed stone cape amethyst, peridot jasper, river sandstone, red aventurine, new jade, brown goldstone, black stone & China jade.
Blue (dyed) rainbow quartz with glass heart
Same stone with celestial pendant

Clasp of celestial necklace
Oregon blue opal. The stone reminded me of driftwood, the ocean & beach on a cloudy day, so I did one in gold with a shell pendant

And one in silver with a dolphin pendant

Faux malachite

Azurite, which is one of my fave stones. I also found this azurite pendant in my charm stash!

Glass beads with a dichroic pendant

I found this enameled pendant and paired it with ruby zoisite beads.
I also added the little danglies to the pendant.

I bought the bookmark and added the beads. It's hard to see, but there are 2 green crystals on either side of a cobalt blue bead.
Another bookmark.
I love makin' stuff!!!


  1. hhhhmmmm,that bookmark looks familiar!I LOVE the azurite and the glass beads are so lovely.Hell,it's all amazing!I can't wait to see your Etsy shop!

  2. Never would have guessed you love making stuff! They are all beautiful.

  3. Bryde - I can't wait to see my Etsy shop either, if I ever get over my abject terror of pricing my goods, figuring out sales tax, how the whole pay pal works and then of course filling out the State tax returns....making & photographing the jewelry is the EASY part! lol

    Val - Thanks! Well it's either make tons of jewelry or spend hours/days/weeks on Facebook and we know where that got me last summer..... ;p

  4. These are gorgoeus! I used to do beading... but I am way too impatient for it :)

    You should try camping sometime! Its great to be outdoors. We are going this weekend up on Mt Hood. I hope to have some good pics posted next week of the adventures :)

    Have a good rest of the week!
