I'm finally submitting more pictures of my work.  I've been busy, as always!  I finally opened up my etsy shop, but I have a lot more stuff to put in it! Here's some of my recent work.  As always, comments and critiques are welcomed and encouraged!

Steampunk-inspired Dragonfly Necklace-
This is a class sample, so if you're in the Columbus, Ohio area and want to learn how to do this, contact me for more information!  It uses swarovski crystal, vintaj, 15/0 seed beads, bugle beads, chain, and czech glass.





Next up, a daffodil necklace!  A lot of people requested that I make a daffodil, so I welcomed the challenge.  I used buttery yellow colors to make sure the piece looked sophisticated instead of childish.  This is made with 15/0 seed beads, czech "sea glass", swarovski crystals, and gold accents.





Last but not least, my plum blossom necklace.  I used 15/0 and 11/0 seed beads, genuine pearl and mother-of-pearl, peridot chips, swarovski crystals, and sterling silver.





Thanks for looking!

Those are utterly gorgeous.  I especially love the first one.  The combination of filigree, gears, and the beaded dragonfly is just stunning.  The beaded flowers are beautiful and bold, too.

Really nice. Especially the first one.

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.

Thanks everyone!

I love the dragonfly necklace, too, and that one was the easiest to create!  I'll have to make more with different colors for my shop. Smiley
