Just enough to add to and not deter from any print you are wearing and yet
classy enough for the office! Designed with these awesome fimo beads made by
Stefanie Wagner of www.claydaze. com!

beautiful chips along with the exquisite sol gel light gold seed beads make
this one absolutely sparkle! Bold yet classy it will be a winner among your
friends and aquaintances!
I have had
requests for Natural
Mother of Pearl without the teardrops so for this one I've substituted ovals and
hearts. Still keeping the other various beads and the basic style the same.
Yours will NOT have the magnetic clasp at the neck nor the lobster claws unless
specifically requested. This one is really charming!

Swarovski Light Colorado Topaz and Crystal AB faceted crystals. I've also used
freshwater pearls and ivory glass pearls to add to the beauty.
asked to design a piece for a very special customer using malachite for its
healing properties, the fluorite to add calcium and to help regenerate the
bones, and the hematite for its abilities to ground, dispel negativity, and add
iron to the blood. This is the result! It is available with a magnetic clasp
which you may request free of charge above.

I've just acquired some of the most fabulous citrine gemstones in a variety of
highly faceted rounds, rectangles and rondelles and I just had to design
something with it right away! This is the result - I think it is one of the best

citrine is the right choice!

beads! This time in navy blue with multi-colored pinched oval and oval beads.
I've also added some intricate pewter beads to add some extra color! Very pretty
Another special request
from someone who wanted gemstones in carnelian and natural mother of pearl. I
accented these beautiful beads with a coppery bronze seedbead that brings out
both the deep red of the carnelian and the natural beauty of the mother of
pearl. It is absolutely divine!!
My customer wanted a red
piece - a monochromatic one in all reds and this is what I designed for her. It
features large fluted oval beads, faceted teardrops and gorgeous Swarovski
faceted rondelles in 2 sizes. Accented with beautiful gold bead caps and
coordinating translucent red seed beads. Surely to get attention wherever you
Another special request
from a very special customer! She asked for something dramatic in all black and
this is my rendition. Created using ALL black onyx in various shapes, sizes and
styles the only variation from "all black" are the gorgeous diamond shape and
smooth rondelles with just a hint of white. I've used faceted teardrops, faceted
and smooth rondelles, faceted and smooth rounds to create a very dynamic piece!
Designed with various sizes and shapes of
gorgeous Angelite which I'm told is a form of Quartz this one definitely has the
WOW factor! All of the angelite used including the large teardrops is faceted so
it really sparkles. I've accentuated them with some fabulous Medium Blue Iris
cube seed beads and silver lined matching aqua round seed beads.
I created this one as soon as I found these
awesome beads at a local bead show. I felt compelled to show my support for our
troops and for our nation as a whole! Designed with various sizes of gorgeous
highly faceted crystal rondelles with large faceted teardrops this one
definitely shows your patriotism! They are not Swarovski crystal but really
This one is designed featuring some beautiful
large mosaic Turquoise ovals, various sterling silver (or vermeil gold) beads
and showcasing Swarovski's Emerald AB 2X faceted bicone crystals which don't show up
real well here but are absolutely to die for in person and bring out the colors
of the turquoise perfectly. I've also used Swarovski's White Opal Starshine faceted bicones to add just a touch of silver. The seed beads are a fabulous blend of
copper/blue/green iris tones to tie everythiing in together.
Another special request for a custom piece using
all freshwater pearls and small precious metal (either sterling silver or gold
filled) smooth rounds. This one is using the magnetic clasp at the neck and the
eyeglass clips. You can order the magnetic clasp above if desired and request
the ends above if wanting something besides the standard ones. Unless ordered it
will not come with either the clasp or the clip ends. This one is perfect for
all year round!

lady who loves petite and feminine pieces! Created with gorgeous givre pink leaf
beads with pink givre flower rondelles and coordinating pink shimmering seed
I received a request around Christmas time for a
Hawaiian style piece. This is what I designed using some pink mosaic shell
beads, some lavender small heishis and some lavender curly shell beads along
with a couple of coconut beads. I tried to keep it dainty and demure yet unique.
I received a special request for an eyeglass
chain in Amethyst and a "lime green" and I chose rare, rather pricey Australian Gaspeite to go
with the Amethyst, as close to lime green as gemstones go. This is the charming
result! Very unusual and unique it is sure to be an attention getter! Please
note: Nice gaspeite is difficult to find and I don't have very much of it so if
you are leaning toward this one get it before it is gone.
For all of you cat lovers out there - check this
out!! I found some really sweet cat bead caps and have designed this piece to

injected core beads with some peacock spacers and beautiful coordinating seed

There are matching earrings on my Unusual Glass bead earring page!
A new request from a dog lover! She asked for the
puppy bead caps with something in "ruby red, lime green and various shades of
purple" - this is what I designed. I used fabulous ruby red faceted glass
helix beads, lime green gaspeite gemstone chips and deep purple glass pearls in
various sizes with faceted helix purple iris glass beads. And for the
coordinating seed beads gorgeous Toho triangles in Light Amethyst luster. Again I this could be designed in your favorite color. Just ask!
This stunning beauty was custom designed for a
very special client of mine. She loves sparkle and asked for "something in blues
and greens". This is the result! A fabulous focal piece on either side designed
with a multitude of crystals with matching designer glass crystal rondelles
throughout - I call this one "Mint Julep". Absolutely gorgeous for anytime of year!! I was only able to obtain
a limited number of these focal beads so if this is for you, grab it now!

paired them with Swarovski fuchsia faceted crystals in two sizes and some gorgeous sol gel pinkish seed beads! This one is perfect for those people you know who
adore the piglets or for yourself if you are piggy lover! Of course the first

they will be right side up for everyone to admire!
There are matching earrings on my Handmade Lampwork earring page!
I do a lot of my men's designs in matte black
glass and matte black onyx beads and when a good customer asked me for "something
in black with a matte finish" I immediately thought of the gorgeous matte black
onyx! This is the result! Using two sizes of teardrop beads, various rounds and
a stunning coin bead this one will speak volumes yet not interfere with anything
you are wearing to work or to school! Or out on a late night date!
Update: I now have the eyeglass chain completed
since it has been very popular! The first photo is the actual chain. The 2nd is
still the necklace that inspired this piece and I've left the "story" below for
your amusement. Of course the chain will not have 52 beads since it would be
extremely long and unusable.
Ok - it doesn't look like an eyeglass chain! You're right - BUT I was so excited about this one and the holidays I HAD to list
it here even before making an actual eyeglass chain! Yours of course will be an
I was told at the last minute that I needed to make a birthday gift for my daughter in law and I had 2 hours to do it. Immediately when I began to think of a color scheme the thought of red and black came to mind - perhaps it's the season! At any rate, this is what I came up with. Since it is her 52nd birthday I was supposed to design something with 52 beads. What a challenge! This necklace has exactly 52 decorative (red and black) beads not counting the components and spacer beads. It is impossible to really describe - it is gorgeous! Please keep in mind I have no problem putting it together in gold - however, the large triangle shape beads only come with the silver edging - would still look beautiful with gold everywhere else!
Blue quartz faceted rondelles and blue quartz chips along with an opalized blue glass seedbead. Very simple yet gorgeous!
This beaded eyeglass chain features the gorgeous deep blue quartz in chips and faceted rondelles, but I've also added one awesome Bali bead on each side to bring out the color of the blue even more.
I've designed this one using some really unusual "swirl" beads - I know there is a name for them but it escapes me! They have a tinge of pink/rose to them and I have accented them with pink toned Japanese round glass beads and some iridescent/matte finish large seedbeads.
I think it is one of the most beautiful ones I've created so far.
A special customer requested something "subtle" to go with her lime green
outfits and I discovered some really awesome gemstones in my stash! Green gossular garnet and prehnite - perfect
for anyone who loves green but perhaps not the bright greens you sometimes find! This one is absolutely stunning with its various
shapes and sizes and paired with beautiful emerald iris seedbeads!
Another request to go with green
outfits this one features some truly gorgeous handpainted oval glass beads and
small vintage round glass carved shapes of roses green beads along with glowing
green flower etched rondelles! This one is equally as stunning with its various
shapes and sizes and paired with beautiful green iris seedbeads!
The simplistic beauty of black matte glass rounds and Bali Silver
or fancy gold filled beads. This one has lobster claw clasps on the ends for illustration purposes only - yours won't have them.
