I Won A Prize

I came across a challenge that Wubbers having by accident, when I was cleaning out my email last week. Anything with sweet catches my eye, this was no exception. It was a sweet treat challenge. Being so new to jewely and designing I really haven’t put myself all the way out there. This would be a challenge to myself to actually submit something. I thought about it and realized that I had a perfect bracelet for the challenge.  It was one of the bracelets I had shared with you awhile back.  The beads on the bracelet looked like little candies with sprinkles on top.  I finished working on the bracelet, took some pictures, at the last minute, (of course) and submitted it. They made the announcement, and my bracelet photo was announcing the winners.  Wow, I couldn’t believe it. I know for some this is not a big deal,  but for me, being such a noob at making jewelry, this was/is a big deal. 

 Then to top it all off…I actually won something too.  So happy with the prize as well, what a “treat”, thank you Wubbers! 

   

The Muse Is At Work

I have been working on a collection of jewelry called the muse.  I’m slowly finding my style as I go.  My main goal is to design jewelry that will incorporate my beads in the designs. So far…I’m getting there.

The beads move freely back and forth along on the bracelet.

Muse-an instance or period of reflection.
Listen to the beads

Feel the movement/vibration

See the colors

Take in this moment, now

This is my wish for you.

   
 I will have pendants and earrings as well, as soon as I can move the ideas in my head to my work bench.  For now this is my beginning.

The listing for this bracelet can be found here.

Since getting my new kiln I have been able to make many beads.  I’m truly loving freedom I never had before.  Here are a few of the sets I’ve been working on. 

     

Mission Accomplished

I have been trying to come up with jewelry designs that incorporate my lampwork beads. I have had quite a few failures and broken beads but I finally got some bracelets that I am happy with. I’m looking forward to making and selling many more. Take a look and please tell me what you think. They are not all the way done. They still need finishing touches.
