|'FLUTTER', my latest design. I was almost done listing it, but couldn't Let Go!|
We all do it! Every once in a while we create something that we just can't bear to sell! Am I right? Don't try to deny it . . . I know better!!!
Once in a while I begin a project specifically for myself, but more often than not I have every intention of passing it on to a good home. In most cases it's some extra special, one-of-a-kind component that turns my head. I love it, and I just gotta have it all to myself!
So on the light side, this week I decided to show you a few of the jewelry items that never got included in the line-up over at jQ jewelry designs.
|'FLUTTER' ~ Sterling silver, Oregon Sunstone and a Preserved Dry-Flower Charm from Rosalera|
This next piece is a necklace created with a very high quality Tourmaline, Spinel and extremely lustrous stick and biwa pearls. I manipulated the tension on the pearl's beading wire pearl so that they appear ruffle-like. I'd intended to sell this piece for a pretty penny, but when it came right down to accepting a buyer's very generous offer, I just couldn't part with it.
|Appeared in Ornament Magazine and worn at the Bellagio by yours truly ...|
|I was crazy about the colors in this strand of Chalcedony that I found at a Gem Show. The vendor only had one and I've never seen anything like it since.|
The rest of the pieces are a lot more casual ...
|I simply couldn't resist the high quality of this Rainbow Moonstone with it's beautiful subtle blue flash|
|Fell for this softest shade of sea-green Druzy - the sugary crystals are spectacular!|
And designed around some very special Vintage components ...
|These old tin cut glass beads from the 20s were very limited ... couldn't bring myself to share ;D|
|One of my personal favorites with all vintage components and some extrememly rare Carnival Glass beads that show off a rainbow of color.|
Now please feel free to share what you've created and then just couldn't let go!
