BUT YES – aside from the waist beads, I haven’t made many new pieces. Last night, however, I made a break through and finally went through my “to-do” box (yes, I have a to-do box filled with bagged beads) and got some projects done.
Dissecting this batch of new accessories (some of which I created last night, others, I’ve just never mentioned before), I’m going to start with this little doo-hickey. It’s a bracelet made of antiqued copper chain and a really cool toggle I bought ages ago.

Hello Darling Readers!
Since we last spoke, I talked about all the new pieces that I created from the PPI workshop. Since then, my production on new items has slowed down, however, I’ve been working on displays and other elements for selling my pieces.
Which leads me to a bout of not so great news – I’m not sure when I will be able to participate in the Artists & Fleas flea market. Being highly optimistic, I signed up to vend at an upcoming event and the organizers have failed to contact me back, thereby stranding me on the weekend I intended on using to sell. Now that is too late for me to book the flea and I will have to do with the following weekend or the weekend after that, which pushes me from selling in July to September. This is bothersome as I will have to return to “real” work in September…which ultimately leads to a slow down on the Pretty Poet Ink front.
But! I will try to prevail.
Anyhow, I wouldn’t leave you stranded, so here’s a few photos of pieces I have completed:
Hello all my darling followers!
It’s been a while since we last did an update and so now, I will share with you some of the creations I’ve made since last time!
As you can tell, it’s going to be a long post as I’ve got pictures of pieces I hadn’t photographed for you, mostly new pieces.
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!
Been gone, but I’m back and with new pieces none the less!! Check ’em out:
Hey There! =D
And here we find a new piece! It’s kind of my take on a sandy/gold desert inspired necklace. I will be making a bigger one that I’ll be calling ‘Dune,’ but for now, I might just call this…Arakkis or even Mua’dib.
In getting ready for my jewelry party, I’ve been researching for several ways to make my OWN displays and tags/cards to put my jewelry on and I’ve come up with this (as a working template):
|Here’s an earring card (for large earrings) made of card stock|
|and a necklace display that I painted made of card stock as well|
I’m still tinkering around with the tags, as I need to make some to hang off the bracelets & necklaces.
