Jewelry Blues!

These are just some of the sets and pieces of jewelry that I have made in blues, shades of blues/related to blue, or containing some blue.  A drop in the bucket!

On black velvet... shows some teal...
On bare skin... a little transparent... looks different on everyone, and with whatever you are wearing.
Unfinished blobs have a lot of potential!

Earring options: French Hooks/Wires, Posts (dangling or not), even clip-ons.
Many with multiple earring options.

Earring Extenders are also optional.

Sizes generally are within 1-1/4" x 1-1/4".  This one is approximately a 1" square (slightly longer).

These pieces are made from pattern bar scraps.

These pieces are a little longer - maybe about 1-1/2".  The silver dichroic glass reflects a little lavender.

Many are cabochons with dichroic glass inclusions.

Some have crinkled dichroic glass.

Each pieces is a unique, one-of-a-kind creation.  Even earrings will have slight differences.

These have millefiori inclusions.

Many are layered.  This is a combination of dichroic and plain art glass.

There is no end to the variety of shapes available.

This pendant is about 1-1/4" round.

Pendant bails and ear wires/posts are available in silver and gold plating, or sterling silver.

Assorted pendant bail types are available.

A pendant (about 1"x1-1/4") and earrings with extenders (wire balls).

Dichroic glass reflects and transmits light.  The peach color above is from what I am wearing.

Some jewelry pieces are mounted on beaded chains.  Beaded chains can also be purchased change pendants.

Triangles are often overlapped in my jewelry designs.

Add extenders (the square links above, or other styles) depending on the length of hair and personal preference.

Most pieces are sold as sets.  Some pieces are sold individually.

Design your own pendants, choosing metal color and earring type.

Custom designed specifically for your tastes and preferences.

2nd Round of Ornaments for the National Christmas Tree!

The Forest Service offered an extension of the deadline to get ornaments submitted for the National Christmas Tree this year.  They needed to be sure they had at least 5,000 ornaments for the tree!  

So, I tried to recruit some more people to make additional ornaments to add to the batch that I had already delivered to the Forest Service Office.  (I heard later that they exceeded the 5,000 necessary ornaments!)

Leslie dropped everything and stopped cleaning her carpets to come over to make ornaments.  Phil ran next door and recruited nearly the whole family - Kim and kids Erik (10) and Ryan (8), as well as their grandmother Mary, and cousin Katie (8).

Katie's ornaments are above.  The rest are below!  

Phil and I made some extras to fill up the kiln.  Phil made his out of the scraps just laying on the table after everyone else had gone home!

Western Snowmen by Erik!

Ryan's Snowmen & Penguin!

These are Kim's creations!
