New Old Stuff

I have been threatening :) to load some photos of new bead work, and honestly just haven't had the brain for it in a long time. But, I'm back on now, after a lovely 2 1/2 months traveling in South East Asia, with some old new stuff to share. Some of these pieces I made for the last Jambo Arts exhibition I participated in, and some were commision pieces. I have recently signed up for a Travel Challenge, so will be posting some pieces from the challenge soon soon. Here's to creative inspiration!

These lovelies were inspired by a pair of earrings I saw on Pinterest.

I love this mandala style earring. I always come back to it.

These funky fans are made from recycled soda can :)

Wire worked rings are so much fun. Love spirals.

This little darling puts a smile on my face every time I see it.

This pendant was inspired by a copycat project I saw on New Dress a Day

This is a commision piece made for a friend. I'd never worked with buttons before, but I will definitely be doing it again.
 Well, that's all for now. I would love any feedback you have on these pieces. And if you have any questions, I'm always happy to answer.

  1. I love the earrings you made, especially the beadwork. So colorful and happy! And the mandala design is fun. Lots of varieties possible. I love working with buttons and use them a lot, especially in bead embroidery or for bracelet closures.
