I haven’t been too creative the last couple of weeks, but I don’t want to skip a lot of blog posts. So I will show my little makes of late.

A while ago I got some vintage pinch bails from Suzanne Branca’s Famous Vintage Bead Hoard Liquidation Destash. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them, but the ladder look of them is so cool. Then I got a few free project ideas with an order from Goody Beads.

I actually have some Swarovski heart pendants, but the scale of my bail was too big. In looking for what else I might have, I found another crystal pendant. I suspect this was gifted to me by Patti Vanderbloemen, but it got separated from its packaging, so I’m not sure. In any case, it was a nice size for the bail.

I had this awesome chain – in fact a ready-made necklace – in sparkly twisted gold. It goes quite well with the pendant. This photo doesn’t show everything as pretty and glittery as it is.

I also made a couple pair of earrings for the Artists for Animals Auction that will now be taking place in November. The first features peace sign connectors. I’ve always loved the peace symbol; it’s such a hopeful thing. I added vintage Miriam Haskell lemon rainbow glass dangles. They are so pretty. I got both of these components from Suzanne’s site as well.

My other pair features what I call “puzzle pieces” by Sue-Lin Tarnowski. I love the colors. I added a green glass hoop.

Thanks for having a look at my makes. I hope you are doing well.
