5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Road Kill mother of pearl bracelet with genuine coyote claws on: June 11, 2007 08:57:29 AM




I made this bracelet by imprinting Road Kill on a mother of pearl bead. I used genuine coyote claws that are about 30 mm lng and black glass beads.

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Kokopelli imprinted on sandstone bead BRACELET on: June 11, 2007 08:51:33 AM






The look I am goin for is cave drawing that is why I imprint on sandstone. The actual color of the bead is best represented in the top picture.

It took me about two years to perfect the system of imprinting on snadstone, turquoise, and mother of pearl beads.
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Just did my first bracelet that has a clasp CALIFORNIA PRINCESS on: May 26, 2007 11:16:45 AM




It is made up of a mop bead with the imprint california princess, red coral, and two glass beads. 

I added the glass beads so that I could hide the beading wire. Unfortunately the bracelet ended up 8.5 inches long which is a large.
Oh well, at least I did it. Now I am off to make necklaces.
8  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Turquoise Affirmation bead on: May 18, 2007 11:04:46 AM




These pictures show both sides of the bead.  The idea is to wear the jewelry with DO IT TODAY showing in the morning. Once the goal is reached the bead is turned over to read I DID IT!
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / I can put words on turquoise beads and mother of pearl beads on: May 17, 2007 09:45:19 AM
It took me over two years to learn to do this. Besides the route 66 turquoise stone shown above I have put the following words on mop:
Love, Praise God, California Princess, Family.

I always like to make my jewelry unique. I spoke with a man who was in the jewelry manufacturing business for 40 years, and he said that he had never seen this done.

Just thought I would share.
