I've been toying with the idea of coming up with a jewelry for a while now. I've been making things for a couple of years, but none were intended to be cohesive. But ... that finally came true this summer Smiley I think I've finally found my style. Enjoy! (and I love any & all feedback)

Carrot Love:



Sweet Dandelions:



Joydrops:



Waiting:



Flight:



Scattering Ice:



Blossoms at Dusk:



Garden Tea:


(I embroidered some clear seed beads onto the cotton eyelet so that it'd sparkle when the sun hits it Smiley)

Let them wear bows:



There's a lot more but I don't want to flood the board. Most of these pieces were inspired by the imagery in lyrics, or when i just wanted to experiment with a certain material (like feathers). Thanks for looking Smiley

Awesome!  I love how each one tells a story and is evocative of an image or feeling.

Thanks for the feedback guys Smiley

petalmixer - making jewelry makes me excited and often times ideas just jump out of things i see/hear, so i try to translate that Smiley i'm happy you noticed

I really like joy drops - Are those mother of pearl?  Very pretty with the curled wire.

Thanks Seraphina Smiley I'm actually thinking of writing up a tutorial on how to make garden tea (or some similar pieces) I'll post here when that happens.

Thanks Onyxnox, I'm not sure but I don't think so. The reflective part is really really thin (the back is dark flaky layers) and I've never seen mother of pearl pieces that look like this. on the other hand, i have no idea what they are, so I just refer to them as 'shell'.
