New in the Shop

Two more Czech glass button necklaces...these buttons are much larger than the ones I usually work with, at about 1.5 inches wide. The Buddha Necklace is a translucent ruby red with gold and silver luster, on a a brass rolo chain dotted with bronze glass drop beads. The Green Mermaid features brass stampings, iridescent firepolished and smoke lucite beads on antique brass chain.

Some months ago I purchased some Czech Glass buttons and finally am making them into necklaces. This one is especially apt for fall, with its fiery orange color. Gold luster tulips are so shiny and add wondrous sparkle. Wrapped in filigree and hanging on a brass chain. Already sold!!

I re-discovered these glass disc beads that I'd bought a couple of years ago on Etsy, and was playing with them idly, coming up with color combinations. I've made bracelets and necklaces with them before, but decided not to get too complicated this time, as no two beads are exactly alike, and they're fun and colorful slung together on a chain. The texture is smooth yet also rough, and I like the odd fleck here and there.

Swimming Pool, Spearmint, Creamsicle, Racing Colors and Halloween Necklaces are brand new and available in the shop.
