Sweet Mother of Pearl!

il_570xN_644251522_ace7I unexpectedly found mother of pearl beads in retro colors. I knew I had to make earings with them!

Hanging a generous 2-7/8 inches, these handcrafted mother-of-pearl earrings are right in style. Each yellow flower is carved with details and is a full 1 inch in diameter. The orange disc accents the flower well at 1/2 inch in diameter. Because mother-of-pearl is a natural creation, there may be slight differences in coloring — this is normal. Setting off these mother of pearl beads are black glass seed beads. These earrings are fashionable year ’round.

Oranges! Oranges!

I made this bracelet with the intent of making it kind of retro and kitschy. How often do you seen oranges on a bracelet? This on has it! Seven vintage glass beads shaped like luscious oranges are nestled between vintage glass leaves. This unique handcrafted bracelet is set in silver plate and connects with a simple toggle clasp. It measures approximately 8-1/2″ inches long, and can be easily made smaller, if necessary. Lightweight and colorful, here’s a fun way to bring a little Florida or California to your wardrobe.

 

This would be a great gift for mom, sister, daughter, niece, grandma, or teacher! I invite you to visit my Etsy store, Miss Poppy’s Boutique by clicking this link. There’s also another Etsy store, Gene’s Joint, where Gene makes unique handcrafted jewelry and findings. Check it out HERE.

Green Sparkle

I got into a kick recently with making beaded key chains, and I must have made about a dozen. Keeping true to my philosophy, none are identical, and as with all accessories I create, I try to keep each one unique. That’s not to say I won’t make my customers identical items if they want; my initial offerings are one-of-a-kind.

On the day that my mood was green, I created a key chain dubbed “Green Sparkle.” And, WOW! it’s green! It would look good around the Holidays , springtime, and all year ‘round, in fact.

I took a green colored split ring to coordinate with the green beads that I used. A cluster of green glass faceted beads form the focal of this bright and sparkly key chain. One of the beads I hand wrapped in silver plated wire. A green split key ring makes this a fashionable accessory.

What is good about making key chains is that anything goes. It doesn’t matter too much on color, bead type or size, or even the amount of beads placed on the chain.

Each key chain is created by hand sorting beads by style, shape, and color. No two items are every alike! The key ring is approximately 1″ in diameter, with an overall chain length of 4″. Pretty and lightweight, these are functional, fashionable, and would make good housewarming gifts, birthday gifts, new car (or driver’s license) gifts, or as a treat for yourself.
