hi!  this is my first time posting in the jewelry category but absolutely not the last!  here are a few recent projects i have made:

first is my take on the "nestlace."  i added a shrinky dink swallow to make it a little more unique:



next up is a shrinky dink tattoo style design.  swallows + nautical stars = awesome!  it is a little on the large size, with the whole thing being about 4 inches long.



and here is something that just kind of happened.  i found this fantastic glass heart charm.  the color in it actually changes colors depending on the light, changing from hot pink to purple.


and a better representation of the color in the heart:



and last up is a simple star pendant.  i wish i could take credit for the wire star, but it is something i found at michael's.  i love the chain on this one.



comment and criticism are much appreciated... i have lots of plans for more jewelry, this is a lot of fun!  i am currently working on my own tree of life, as well as a few others.
