Long days...

Today is going to be another one of those long days. I'm getting ready to leave in about 30 min. to take my mom to a series of Dr. appointments. I'm sure we'll both be tired and ready for a nap when all is said and done today! But, I wanted to first of all post the pics that I promised:
This first necklace is a spiral rope and I beaded in little copper leaves. Finished the whole thing off with a copper leaf clasp and a little acorn so you could wear this necklace with the clasp in the front or back depending on what you wanted.
This second one is for my sister. It's a St. Petersburg stitched necklace with a Green Girl Studios butterfly (that I won, thank you Lorelei!). I stitched hematite rounds for a little interest and to try to pull the pewter color from the butterfly into the actual necklace.

Finally, I created this hair barrette for my sister as well, the centerpiece is a gunmetal filigree focal that I bought locally. The other beads are a mix of gemstones, czech faceted rounds, AB iris seed beads and just some gray transparent japanese seed beads thrown in for good measure. I really like this and it's gonna be hard giving it away!!

I hope you all have a wonderful, creative day. Enjoy the season and the ones that you love.


  1. That barette is gorgeous! Actually, they all are. I love the acorn on the first necklace. It is the details that make the difference and I can tell that these have things in them that aren't apparent but will delight the receiver! Enjoy the day!

  2. Muy bonitas las tres , pero me gusta mucho el pasador para el pelo!!!!!!

  3. Una maravilla!!! el broche es precioso!!!
