Saturday, December 14, 2013


I just posted the Creative Spark Magazine.  I thought I would post my designs which I made for the magazine.  There was a handful of us designers for Znetshows which were challenged to create designs from their pearls.  We got to pick out our own mix.  I posted this challenge earlier if you would like to see what beads I used.  I also have them listed in the magazine.  I love challenges because they get my mind thinking in different directions and I never know what brain is going to come up with.  Sometimes I get that...Ah..I know what I am going to do...and other times...its like...Hmmm...I think this is what I want to do...oh wait..nooo...not that...its ugly!  Oh, how about this?  Ok...this might work...  you see how it goes?  Hehehehe...  Anyhooo...  here are some pics..

Please feel free to leave a comment or two...would love to get your feedback!


This set is called... Cinnamon Teal with Attitude!  LOL
I had seen somewhere on the web, wish I remembered the name of the artist, the hammered bar.  I knew right away how I would change it and add my own to the creation.

This is called....Sparkling Teal Champagne
I made this necklace first.  I made some beaded beads and I had some sari silk which matched perfectly with the beads.  Lots of fun to make...then once I finished the necklace I made the bracelet...using smaller beads

I might make a tutorial on both of these sets...let me what you think...  :-)

Creative Spark Winter 2013 is here!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this issue. Hope did an amazing job putting all the pieces together.  You MUST check this out!  There is so much information in this issue, lots of tutorials, lots of amazing jewelry designers and many beautiful pictures and inspiration!
I have a tutorial in this issue you will not want to miss...its fun and simple to add more spice to your sea glass beads...  I also have my pearl necklaces, a bracelet and a couple pairs of earrings..

THANKS again for the wonderful ZNETSHOWS for putting my designs in this digital magazine!  And a SPECIAL THANKS to HOPE for all her hard work!

My Newest bundle of joy!

I love it when I get that call from Beads On Main to remind me when they are having their awesome sale.  How often do you get to go to a local bead store and get a nice yummy discount?  Yes, and yummy I mean a whopping 40% of ALL items in the store other than the already marked down items.  Beads On Main does this about 3 times a year and I just love their store.  They have lots of fun metals that I cant find in other bead stores or even online!  They carry a large variety of bead which are different than my other favorite bead store, The Bead Gallery.  So, today, after work, driving in stop and go traffic off and on, I headed on down to Beads On Main.  Jessica was there chatting away with her customers while I walked in.  I was in AWE...they had totally reorganized the little shop.  It was beautiful...all set up for the holiday season..and lots of new stuff!  Normally I walk into a bead store with an agenda, but today I wanted to just look around and see what I could find.  I dont NEED any more beads...I just WANTED some new fun stuff to play with.  I probably spent an whole hour plus wandering around.  As you see in the photo below...I really had a great time...

I will take more pictures soon and show you more of what I bought...and perhaps a few finished pieces too once I dig in...

7000 Bracelets of HOPE

Znetshows has invited all of their designers to join them in supporting THE GLOBAL GENES PROJECT in creating bracelets in support for all those who are affected with rare and unusual genes. We were given a choice of two different beads, pearls and crystals, all in blue.  Once we chose our beads, they were quickly sent to us.  We had less than 2 weeks to create our bracelets. Today I shipped mine off.  I chose to use the magic stretch so my bracelets would be a little more flexible for different sized wrists. I used a variety of  metal components to add a little more bling to the bracelets.
This is the front view of the bracelets.  After I finished making the bracelets, I still thought they were a little plain.  I went through a box of my fabric and found this awesome piece of blue jean material.  I tore strips and tied them around on one end of the clasp.

This is the backside.  It looks really busy here but they really are much prettier with the fabric strips tied on.

Now you can see each bracelet here.  The theme used by the Global Genes Project is jeans.  So I needed to make sure that not only the blue was used in the bracelets but a hint of jean material...

I made some cards to go along with the bracelets.  I used one of the support badges and I found this beautiful saying and added it to the card.

"Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all."
~Emily Dickinson 

I attached the cards with the same strips of jean material onto the bracelets and packed them into a box and off the went today.

If you are interested in participating, please check out the GLOBAL GENES PROJECT
If you just want to learn more, go to their website and read some of the amazing stories.. they will put tears in your eyes of sadness and happiness and hope!

Winter is coming...

Yes, before we know it, winter will be knocking at our door.  I know in some states its already there...but for takes some time to bring it on!  Today though...the wind sure picked up.  64 degrees is not that cold, but man when that wind rips through it can sure go to the bones!  So, today I stayed inside for the most of it, but I did make a quick run to the bead store.

We have 2 awesome bead stores here and one is usually closed on Sundays but the other is usually open everyday!  I like them both, they seem to carry different beads and all the fun elements to create with.  I bought me some cute scissor charms for a special order I have and a few extra beads for the Winter Challenge from ZnetShows.  So I thought I would give you a little peak at the colors I have going.  The challenge is all about the beautiful pearl.  Who can pass those up?  I actually have a necklace all finished but I am not ready to share that just yet...soon though I promise!  It will be worth the wait trust me.  I am learning more about making metal links...I bought the book.. The Missing Link, a book well worth every penny!  Cindy Wimmer has an amazing book packed with nothing but good stuff.  I will write up a little review on it later.  Anyway, here is my little bundle of joy!

Yes, I believe this is a beautiful mix.  You can see those yummy crystals?  Trust me, they make the necklace soooo amazing!  I still have a lot to make for this challenge, earrings, perhaps a bracelet or two, or even another necklace.  The deadline is Novermber 18th, then it goes into publication for the Creative Spark Glossi...  I cant wait to see what the other designers have created...  I will be back with a few more teasers this week!  :-)

New project/challenge on Face Book

Well about a 2 months ago, I joined in on a challenge from from by Eni.  I belong to her group on FB.  Eni created this awesome website where you can purchase jewelry making tutorials from many different artists.  She also created her own Design tutorials where you can learn from her lessons.

Anyway, our first lesson was to make a drawing of a shape and create different ideas as to how you would make a piece of jewelry from it.  Then the next month was to pick a flower and draw it in several ways in which you can create a piece of jewelry.  We focused on shape first, then reshape it, then put it together in a drawing and then make it into a finished piece of jewelry.  We could choose any medium we wanted to, there are no limits as to how you want to make it.  So, with trial and error I put together this fun pendent.  I am going to make it into a necklace eventually.  I love how Humblebeads makes her designs and beads from different types of clay.  She has shared how she creates her designs through Art Bead Scene, she is my inspiration in this design.

first creation, not that pretty... YUK..

second creation, getting there, but needed more work. OK

third attempt, MUCH BETTER, is putting a smile on my face now!  I feel this is the final creation for this design.  I like it a lot.  It was faster and easier to make this time around.  And a bit messier since I used alcohol inks instead of acrylic paints...and I made the press mold much better so it didnt leave a ridge like it did on the first creation..

Please feel free to leave me some feedback.  Thanks...  :-)

Ginger Snaps My OMG Way Cookies

OMG is the only way I can describe these cookies...  I thought I would treat my husband to a batch of his favorite cookies.  He has been working so hard these days and he took time off to help me out yesterday for the Art Wine and Chocolate Festival that I participated in.  He did all of the unloading and reloading and you all know what a chore that is.  I also had some help from a friend, but I was not able to treat her to cookies just yet.  But I will...

Anyway, these cookies turned out soooo dang good I decided to share it with you.  I also had made this frosting earlier in the week for the class I work in and added that to the cookies...OMG..they are sooo good.  I didnt do a  step by step tutorial but its easy enough to follow...


Ginger Snaps My OMG Way Cookies

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
1 egg
½ cups packed brown sugar
2 tbsp. fresh pureed ginger (in the refrigerated vegetable section at Raley’s) you could use finely chopped dried ginger or freshly grated ginger as a substitute.

2 tbsp. pumpkin spice schnapps (optional)
1 tsp. almond extract
3 ½ cups white flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
¼ cup molasses
1 tsp. nutmeg
¼ tsp. pumpkin pie spice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Soften butter by whipping with your mixer.  Once the butter is nice and fluffy, add sugar, egg, molasses, pureed ginger and brown sugar.  Mix well.  Then add almond extra and pumpkin spice schnapps.  In a medium bowl, add the dry ingredients and mix well with a hand whisk.  Add dry mixture to wet mixture one cup at a time. Use a large cookie scooper and put dough balls about 1 ½ inches apart.  I put 12 on a large cookie sheet.  Bake 10 minutes.  Let cool at least 3 minutes before removing from the cookie sheet or they may fall apart if take off too soon.
NOTE: My recipes are all made from scratch; I do my best to calculate the exact measurements.  Add your own spices to bump up the flavor to your taste!
Makes approximately 3 dozen
For that added extra wow power, I made this awesome frosting.

Maple Brown Sugar My OMG Way Frosting
1 cup softened butter
¼ cup Maple Syrup (I used Mrs. Butterworth’s)
1 cup unpacked Brown Sugar
5-6 cups powdered sugar
¼ cup Whipping Cream
1 tsp salt
Whipping cream as needed

Works best with a Kitchen Aid mixer

In a small pan, melt brown sugar with whipping cream on low heat.  Bring to a slight boil then quickly remove from the stove and pour into a large bowl.  I have a kitchen aid mixer and it works great for this frosting.  I use a plastic paddle which scrapes the sides really well.  Put on high speed and cool down the mixture.  Add syrup and a small amount of whipping cream and whip some more.  The mixture may stick to the sides of the bowl, don’t worry, you can scrap it off with a scrapper. Once the mixture is cooled all of the way, you can start adding the powdered sugar 1 cup at a time.

NOTE: My recipes are all made from scratch; I do my best to calculate the exact measurements.  You may need to add more powdered sugar, cream or maple syrup.  You can substitute syrup with maple flavoring, but the syrup gives the frosting a nice creamy texture.

Cabochon Blog Hop Reveal

I belong to this awesome group on Facebook and one of the members, Sally Russik, decided to put together a fun challenge making Cabochons. She put togethers these great tutorials on making cabochons if you needed a little extra help. I thought it would be great to go to the rock store which is where I found one of the cabs I made which you will see below. My other cab is this amazing hand made Tree of Life Lampwork Focal Bead made by Susan Lambert I had lots of fun putting both pieces together and I hope you like them too.

This cab I chose to do wire wrapping.  I felt is was best to have as much of the natural beauty show.  I am not all the experienced yet with the wire wrapping, but I think it turned out fairly nice.
I had the beautiful beads that I knew would match perfectly with this slice of agate.  The beads tend to change colors when under different lighting which makes adds even more interest to them.  I made a kumihimo rope for the back part of the necklace using sari silk.
To really see the agate, I took this picture holding it up to the sky.  See all the fun layers of color?

This is my second Cabochon...

Is this yummy or what?  I LOVE this.  It took me some time to make this one.  I wasnt sure at first what I wanted to do with this bead, I just knew I was going to do something fun.  It is still not complete, but I will get it done soon.  SO, the dangles at the bottom are supposed to be the roots.  I was thinking of using copper somehow and mix it in as the roots but that idea flew out of my head quickly once I found the right beads.  I love those tiny white beads, I think those are shells, but I am not 100% sure...but I had to have them.

After I finished the bead work on the cabochon, I wasnt sure what I was going to do for the necklace part.  So, I dug through some of the threads that I recently purchased and decided that the light pale sea foam green thread was going to do the job.  I didnt want the thread to be too dark.  I wan the tree to stand out the most from this necklace.  So I found the tutorial on the micro macrame and really liked this pattern.  I picked through my stash and found the beads I felt would really tie in together with the cab.  Its not totally what I imagined it would look like but I think it worked out just fine.  :-)

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my creations...please feel free to leave me a comment or two...and dont forget to check out ALL of the other designers creations.  I cant wait to see what everybody made.

CHARMS....oh yea!

I was on the hunt for some small dolphin and mermaid charms and came across this awesome Etsy shop by Nicole De Brium.  I was very amazed that I received my order within 5 days.  Now that is quick!  Especially going from England to California.  Once I opened my package I was very excited to find an extra bag of goodies.  The charms are very cute, just as seen in the pictures.  The quality too is excellent.  I have bough many charms and these are very well made, and not the thin or too heavy of a charm.  Even the larger pieces I am quite happy with.

Here is the entire order, look how fun these are...

The star fish pendents are sooo pretty I think!

Here is TINK, I have some fun plans for her...
And this is the extra bag of goodies I received...I am lovin those shoes, the sos rings and all the other pieces...

Ive been Highlighted... :-)

Today I got an email from Hand Made Artists letting me know I had one of my bullet casing earrings put in a HIGHLIGHT group... to see my creation along with many other great designers, check it out here... STEAMPUNK   THANKS Andrew...

I forgot I had this handy tool!

I forgot I had purchased a yarn winder a couple of years ago for all the fun yarns I have.  I had purchased these beautiful skeins of Sari Silk from Divinity Fibers on Etsy last year.  They were nicely twisted together but over time after taking a piece here and a piece there...the fiber was starting to get tangled and messy...., the LIGHT came on...DUH..I can make my life a little easier if I just use the tools I have...or remember that I have them.  LOL.  So, I pulled out my handy dandy yarn spooler and whipped those tangled skeins into these beautifully wrapped spools of fiber.  

Ahhh...much easier to use, much easier to store... 

 I think I just like looking at them now...hehehehe.. 

 My little Lily kitty crouched down in that kitty play mode and was getting ready to play with the fiber as I was rolling it up...but all I had to say was...Hey, what are you think of doing? She looked at me...sat down, well crouched down...and just watched me unravel the fiber and then wind it all up on my handy dandy yarn winder...  Well worth the cost of this little winder.  They are not cheap I must admit, but something I know will last me a long time and I know I will use it over and over....

Bargain of the day!

Well, its sad that our OSH is closing soon, but I am sooooo HAPPY too because I got some great deals today.  I bought the last 2 huge sheets of copper for half price...YUP, you heard me right...half price.  I was so excited because I wasnt sure if they still had the sheets there.  The last time I went, last week, they only had stuff for 20% off, so not a big deal really.  But NOW...ALL the metals are HALF price...Oh yea...I was/am very happy.  I even got me a few spools for just over $2 each....  They are not quite out of things yet in the store, there are lots of things still to sell.  Now if I can wait it out another week, they may have the wire even cheaper..but I bet it will be gone by the time I get back there.

Now, with all this copper, I guess I need to start playing with it...  :-)

It is covered with fingerprints...hehehe...but look how huge those sheets are!  26 gauge, so a perfect weight to play play play...

Bead Hoarders Blog Hop is here!!!

Ok, its here! The awesome Bead Hoarders Blog Hop by Lori Anderson. I am so glad I am involved in these blog hops now.  Not only have I met some wonderful jewelry artists, but I feel like my creativity has been challenged and I am getting more confident in my designs.

 I've working hard over the past 2 days trying to figure out what I was going to make with my stash of beads.  I tried to do some crochet with one of the mixes and that flopped.  I'm glad it did though because I went back to my original idea and did the kumihimo technique and I liked the end results.  So, below is the first necklace I made.  Wish I had enough of these beads to make a bracelet..but that's ok. Maybe I can put together a pair of earrings..I think I have enough to do that...hmmm

 After finished up with the kumihimo, I had 8 long strands of string left over and I liked how they had a little twist in the string.  So I decided not to cut them but to use them as part of the design.  I put the little black beads on the strand and at first was going to mix them in all around and that didn't look right.  So I wound up doing one twist around and wire wrapped them to the ends.  Well, I first made loops on the ends...then did the wire wrap.  I found some left over strips of black suede and did a little macrame until I used it up and tied that off. Did a little hunting on making a clasp and found one in a digital magazine I have and made one similar to that.  Fits rather nicely.

The second necklace, I have had these beautiful beads forever.

I started out using some silk thread and didn't like it.  So I wound up using some annealed steel wire.  The lower half of the necklace is rather stiff because of the wire but it lays really nice on the neck area.  I am going to work on some earrings to match.  

Today (Friday) I made another necklace.  I made the clay beads a looooong time ago and I finally put them together in this necklace.  I will admit that the pendent is something I put together this week and I have not had it very long.  But I think all the beads tied in very well.
