Red Jewelry

I have been really busy preparing for summer shows, so it has been awhile since I have blogged. This week I have featured in my Etsy store bright red jewelry!  There is just something about the color of red that warms me up and puts a smile on my face!  In Asian cultures red is considered the color of prosperity and joy.  No matter what hue, and there are so many of them, the rich color comes through and stands out!

Here are a few I have featured this week in my Etsy store.

Black Jewelry

Each week I am featuring a new theme in my Etsy store.  This week the theme is black jewelry.  Because black is a neutral color it goes well with anything in your wardrobe!  Below are a few pieces I decided to featured in my Etsy store.

I used black AB Tila beads with black and silver seed beads.  Fringe beads accent the ends.  I really love the look of the antiqued silver clasp

Two sizes of seed beads and a right angle stitch are incorporated to make this bracelet. 

These were made from TOHO hybrid sead beads.  I love the way the colors marble!

I wanted to make something fun and whimsical, but also a statement piece!
