This bracelet I’ve named “Winterfell” as it reminds me of the area in the North where the Starks of the novel “A Game of Thrones” (and series ‘A Song of Fire & Ice’) reside.
These little dangles are inspired by my love of Ancient Egyptian culture. so I’ve named them…Nefer, which is the Ancient Egyptian word for “to be beautiful.” I may change the name…I’m not sure I’m quite sold on it.
These little dangles are called “Fae,” as they are inspired by my love of fantasy and lore…
This bracelet I’ve made is called “Tiger’s Cage.” It features gold boxes and tiger striped lampwork glass beads.
And last but not least, there are my Gold barrel beads, but with a magnesite twist!
So I’m back with new photos of some of the latest pieces I’ve made. Forgive that some of the earrings aren’t complete yet; I am waiting on an order from Fire Mountain containing a multitude of ear wires to try out!

Over the last couple of days, I’ve been staying up ’til 4 in the morning, mainly watching television BUT also working on some jewelry pieces. I find that I can get my creative juices flowing between the hours of around 9:00PM and 1:00AM and I can knock out a few pieces or at least get a few new designs out. Here’s a look at what I’ve been doing for the past few weeks. Some of these are repeat pictures:
If you can’t tell, the first set of pictures are bracelets, the second set are earrings and the third set of photos are necklaces. I’ve created a couple new necklaces, including matching necklaces to the graduated colored chips bracelet/earrings & a new charm necklace.
I’ve got about 4 more necklaces laid out to work on & a list of other creations to work on. *le sigh*

As you may also notice, there was also a pair of earrings I was on the verge of finishing, but halted. I wanted to see if there were any fresh materials I could scrounge up before finishing them. However, 3 bracelets and a necklace ain’t bad!
Here are some photos of pieces I’ve FINALLY got to photograph! Soon they will be on the PPI Store and available for purchase:
But wait there’s more!
I saw a girl on the train with this bracelet that I know I have the capacity to make and boom, she gave me an idea for a line of charm/trinket necklaces and bracelets. Hopefully I can make a test run tonight!
My darling order from Fire Mountain came in on Wednesday and I couldn’t have been any happier. I swear, it seems like these days, only crafting supplies makes me squeal with excitement! ^_^
I also got some chain from my fave chain place and have all the supplies to make the necklace(s) I’ve been commissioned to do. Hopefully when I get started I can give you guys photos on my progress.
for those of you out there who are interested in crafting and using Swarovski, you should take advantage of the sale going on here.
Any how, I’ve been feeling bad that I haven’t been producing as I should, but I’ve been getting ideas on the regular. I wish I had a big bench table to work on, but unfortunately my space can’t allot for it. I did manage to push myself into re-working a bracelet I started, but got a little agitated about. Here’s the final product:(see picture) Initially I was going for a greek/roman theme and then it dawned on me how the coins are all Queen Elizabeth and her jubilee is next year. So, here’s my way of saying “God Bless the Queen!” I was thinking of throwing a few crystals in there, but I don’t know…
Any how I am off my darling friends. Before I go, here are some earrings I designed. The one to the left are the ones I had to re-work the other day. Do you likes? Will be up for sale as soon as I photograph and post.
Avatar: The Last Airbender, I bring to you these necklace made of stone, metal and crystal. Named after Uncle Iroh’s moniker, Dragon of the West is a necklace that embodies both passion and tranquility. Made up of red agate, green adventurine, gold-plated beads and Swarovski crystals, this necklace’s shining glory is its double sided brass donut pendant. One side features a lizard and bird dragon chasing each other, while the other has four Chinese characters.
