A great Blue Jay Pendant, not too big, but large enough to show off this wonderful bead. While I did not make this focal bead, I did make the boro bead beneath it. Hard to see in the photograph, but the Double Amber Purple boro glass has an undertone of the perfect blue to match with the focal. Was going for a look of a wooden 'perch' for this little birdie. I like it!

Here's the second of two charming sea horses. Look just a bit further down the page to see the other one. These pendants are just adorable. Dainty in appearance but substantial enough to definitely be noticed. Only two available, and I don't think they're going to be around long … really cute right?

Is this cute or what?!? This pendant is just adorable … a friend did a great job of capturing it's cuteness sitting in front of a starfish prop. I have two of these - similar in design but each with it's own personality. Don't think they'll be around too long tho. Thanks for stopping in to see the new stuff.
A friend did the photography for me and I love this gnarly branch he used. A close up of the focal Panda Bear probably would have shown the bead in greater detail, but the structure of this whole set up is amazing. The whole panda has been etched for a more realistic appearance - except his tiny little eyes. They're bright and shiny, not actually seen in this distance shot tho. A statement piece for sure.

Another little sparkle fish to take to the show at the beach - except he looks more like a trout to me. Haven't seen many trout frequent salt water! but hey! he's kinda cute. And the silver glass did put a nice sheen to his fins and tail. Added a boro bead at the base. The combo turned out nicely.

Orange and red coupled with a turquoise base - sounds kinda weird, right? But I love this combination!! In fact, I liked it so much I made this set, plus a pendant and several pairs of earrings using these beads. These beads were so much fun to make, then slice with a razor blade to get that crisp clean cut all around. Even had enough to sell a few as loose beads. Seems as if I'm not the only one to like this color combo.
Shimmery Summer Butterfly using my favorite silvered glass "Triton". It still looks so pretty even when covered with another layer of transparent glass on top of it. Pretty for summer wear, but I think you'll love to wear it all year long. Sure to garnish some compliments.

This is my second feather pendant, and I like it even better than the first. It's a much larger version, and I just love the purple dots (EDP). STILL a difficult color to work into a piece, but it's still a favorite. A really nice piece that will make it's appearance at Myrtle Beach. Always a great show.
