Don't Get Me Started!!

I bought a bracelet in April 2010, while in Borrego Springs, California, it is turquoise and copper and I thought afterwards, "I could have made that". It is a beautiful bracelet and I still love it, but now I am making beautiful pieces.

Please email me if you are interested in a piece, I would be so pleased to hear from you!

Michou, resides in Hamburg, and she is, without a doubt, rather amazing. Her lampwork beads are the most beautiful and bright beads to be found. I know that my camera does not catch even a hint of their life, which frustrates me. Maybe I will figure out a way to get better pics one day. Her other interests are also very colourful, she is also an actress among other things.

I hope that you like what I have done with some of her beads.
The beads in the blue necklace are the last of a set of 5. You will see another necklace and a bracelet with the others of the set in a past posting.
The other beads in these necklace are from Kazuri, the Nairobi bead factory that has given work to women in Kenya, and from Ginnovations. I always think, once I have tumble polished a piece, that it is my favourite and it happened again, these are now my favourites! Cheers!

Some Kazuri beads, Lampwork beads by Ginnovations and Sterling Silver which has been hammered on the focal and the two other twisted pieces. Cremes and browns always easy to wear and great with black.

Newest Cold Connection Bracelets

I had a few Sterling bracelets from Mexico holidays that I have not worn in a while so I took them apart. One was red and the other was purple. I used some of the links and rivetted them to bracelets, here is one with the purple links. I love butterflies and hearts so I did bracelets with those themes.

Three Necklaces from the same Kazuri Bead Family

Classic Black and autumn golds with Sterling. And who does not like the animal print theme!

Some new necklaces!

I do love hearts and they keep recurring in my work!

this lampwork heart of turquoise and purple was made by Leah Nietz and the others beads used are Kazuri beads.
here are two different earring options, both Sterling, and I have more still in turquoise as I love that colour!

This green, gold and silver necklace is a combo of Pendragonfyre lampwork and Kazuri beads, lots of twisted sterling and the gold accents on the beads give this necklace a bit more versatility in what it can be worn with! Sterling earrings to go with!

New and improved!

I decided to remove the rubber choker off of this focal piece which is in an older post. I thought then that I should not have used black rubber as its cord and I finally got around to making the silver and Kazuri bead neckpiece for the focal.
I like it better, the focal is large and the rubber cord was not bold enough for it. I still like rubber cord for the right piece, just not this one!

Bracelets, who does not love them!

Apple green and purple beads by Kazuri, with Sterling. The earings are sterling hearts, though the photo does not show them as that, something is reflecting in the silver and giving it a dark look even though it is bright sterling silver!

Pink and gold lampwork beads by Ginnovations, Texas. It is hard to see that the large beads are gold with pink but not hard to see in person! Ginny makes the nicest beads, I really like her work!

Lampwork beads by Darlene, Pendragonfyre in New Brunswick. Matching earrings also in Sterling. Pink and grey always elegant!

Mixed metals, Sterling, brass and copper bangle charms with black Kazuri beads

Lampwork Beads again by Ginnovations, with sterling silver and again so much prettier in person!
