I love custom orders!

I really do love them.

This here is a pair of earrings for a lovely gal named Sandra! She was at a house party hosted by a friend and she loved the earrings that were in my giveaway here, but wanted them in black!  I didn't have the same sized wire for the outer ring, but I had a slightly bigger gauge.  The new version are more substantial, but also sturdier.

These babies are no small pair of earrings.  At just about 2 inches around, they are a showy, shiny pair.

Each hoop was cut to size, then fused together.  I hammered, filed, hammered some more, then filed, and then polished them to a sheen. I love the slightly darker parts where the hammer hit and the polish just can't reach.  So pretty!

Custom orders are my fave, darlings, so if you see anything you like, but would like it in a different color, just holler!  :D

Offcenter Necklaces

Color for May
I haven't had much time lately to make things... And that makes me sad, but I'm free this weekend to do whateva I want!  :D  I have a few custom orders to do and I hope to just knock out some stunning pieces!

Color for June!
My newest necklace design, the Offcenter, is a bit funky, definitely fun and easy to wear, but mainly short.  I don't do many short necklaces....  I'm not biased against them... And I even own quite a few, but I just tend towards longer ones!  :D  I'll try to work on that though, for the short necklace fans! 

I've only made three colors so far, but I'm thinking white would just look amazing with the brass beads mixed in too...  Or bright yellow, maybe?

Two strands of chain, two strands of beads... It's all about balance in the style, but the beads were all added at random, so they are off center!  :D

I hope you have a lovely weekend!  Thanks for reading!

Special Color for June: Turquoise!

It was an even toss here on the blog from those who voted. Half said the granite color, half said turquoise. One person commented on facebook with turquoise making it the winner!

I think, not only will I use the turquoise colored beads, but I'll toss out some REAL Turquoise for fun too! :D

Thanks for voting!

Any thoughts on the colors for July?

New Bracelets - Suspended

I've had the steel gray, red and caramel version of Suspended in my shop for a while, but I recently made a few new colors.  First was white, because I love white in the summer. It's just so fresh.  I know they say that every year, but it's so crisp and clean!  :D

Lavender was soon to follow, but the green is my favorite.  Bright, vibrant green.  It's just so summery and fun!

I love this design especially for layering.  They are wonderful alone, but look great doubled or tripled or with sterling bangles.

I made myself one in a smoky gray faceted bead and I wear it with my bangles and with another bright colored bracelet.  It's just such a great combo.

Each bracelet is roughly 8 inches long and made of Czech glass beads.  All metal is antiqued brass.

$25 each

If you would like one, but in a different color, just holler at me here: and we can get that going!  You can find the other colors of the Suspended bracelets here.

Thanks for reading!  Have a great day!
xoxo, JB
