Marble Bracelet

I made this bracelet last year with some left over beads. I ended up liking the bracelet more than the necklace they were left over from!

Cloud Bracelet

I posted about this bracelet back in December but did not have a great photo of it so here is one that is much clearer! I love the feel of these pearls on my wrist whenever I wear this fun piece!

Stephanie Necklace

I have been blessed with amazing friends. Last Christmas one of them gave me the beads that I used to make this necklace. She is one of the most generous and kind people I have ever met and a true friend. Her strength and unconditional friendship inspires me to be a better person and I dedicate this piece to her!

Byzantine Bracelet

Hello everyone! I realize I have been neglecting my blog a bit lately but that is just because I have been so busy making new pieces! And I have been teaching myself the art of photo editing so there will be some new quality photos coming soon!

One of the more recent bracelets has me very excited. I have been on a byzantine kick lately and this piece just makes me smile. It is feminine but strong and so much fun to wear.
Check back soon for more new and exciting pieces!

Right Angle Weave

So I have been really into bicone crystals lately.They fit together really nicely to make intricate patterns and as you may know I love intricate patterns! In search for inspiration for bicone designs I came across this tutorial for the right angle weave. Bicones work really well with this weave but round beads work as well. First I made a bracelet with the leftover crystals I had from a previous project and loved the technique so much I did it again with the leftover beads from the Melisandre necklace. Here are some pics and a link to the tutorial I used to learn the weave! Its super simple and easy to learn but the results are very impressive so give it a try next time you have some extra beads!
