I didn’t realize I hadn’t posted in a couple of weeks. I have been making, though. With the Artists for Animals Auction coming up, I generally think about that when going into my studio lately. I’ve made more new things than I thought, and I also have stock that I made before, so I’m pretty well set. I’ll show some of the things I’ve made just lately.

Mottled turquoise solder frame oval pendant with a variety of colors and shapes of Czech glass beads made into a necklace.

This lovely pendant is by Lora Lunsford. I love making necklaces with lots of colorful Czech glass.

I actually made these earrings eons ago but just with the large drop beads. I really like the long kidney wires but decided they needed a little something and wanted to wrap some tiny gemstones on the wire. Wire wrapping always seems a bit futzy to me, so it took me this long to do it! But it dressed them up nicely as suspected.

Earrings with long kidney wires wrapped with tiny stones in gold and brown tones with large tan stones at the bottom.
Necklace with ceramic horse pendant with jasper and other beads in a necklace of brown, rust, tan and white tones.

It’s always fun to have a horse bead or pendant for the horse lovers. This one is by Foxpaws with some jasper.

Necklace with light pink rosary chain with pearl rosary chain in front and a pewter old-fashioned gloved hand holding a heart.

I’m very into rosary chain lately. I’ve always loved it but hate to make it. With access to some really nice stock from the Famous Vintage Bead Hoard Liquidation Destash, I can make pretty things easily! Here I’ve combined romantic pink and pearls with a Green Girl Studios captive heart pendant.

Today I used a paw print heart Allegory Gallery wooden pendant, perfect for the auction. I went to get a beaded bead from The Bead Goes On to use with it and I also saw some bamboo hexagon beads I’d gotten from there I had planned to use for a now forgotten project. I thought they’d look great all together, and I was right! A very lightweight and fun necklace.

Wooden heart pendant with a paw print cut out with a yellow, orange and black beaded bead above it. The necklace is finished with seed beads and hexagon shaped wooden beads in yellow, brown, black, green and red.

I have more things squirreled away that I may or may not have shown on the blog. I hope you can take a peek at the Artists for Animals Auction when it is live November 1 – 7, 2021. A variety of artists post their handmade items (not just jewelry) and give all the proceeds to the animal charity of their choice. I donate mine to Madison Cat Project.
