Freshwater Pearl Earrings

I had these cute teardrop shaped findings for earrings {thanks Amy!} and could not resist wire-wrapping pearls to go on them. I wanted to create something pretty and elegant, earrings that could be dressed up or down.

Here is what the they looked like prior to putting the ear wires on. I thought about adding more pearls, but decided against it after leaving them alone for a while.

Here is what the earrings look like finished. They actually came out better than expected. When worn, the pearls cluster in the middle—so pretty.  I have been working on pearl jewelry for the last two days, so you will definitely see more pearl jewelry soon.

Freshwater Pearl Earrings measure approximately 1 ½ inches from the ear wire. These earrings can be purchased at the EZRA Spring 2012 jewelry party on Saturday, March, 24th.

Oh, and a little shout-out to Amy. Any time she sees any cute jewelry findings she always picks some up for me! She is such a sweetheart! Gracias!

Tangerine Statement Necklace

Wire-wrapped glass, tangerine cube beads and deep turquoise glass seed beads make a bold statement in this necklace. This necklace measures 21 inches in length and comes with matching tangerine earrings. This necklace was created out of sheer curiosity of wire-wrapping the cubed beads… “What would happen if?”… So, I just started playing and this is the result. I loved the way the bluish-green seed beads looked with it so I added four strands on each side. This necklace will be perfect for a night out or some other event where bold jewelry is appropriate.   

Playful in Pink

This necklace is inspired by J.Crew’s spring jewelry; specifically, their blooming bead pendant necklace: http://www.jcrew.com/womens_category/jewelry/necklaces/PRDOVR~74442/74442.jsp.  I loved the beads in the middle of the chain. I decided to try it and voila, this playful statement necklace was created. I used aluminum chain, glass seed beads, glass crystals, shell & resin. I off-centered the pink crystals for a little playfulness and added a large shell and resin bauble for fun. You can’t help but feel happy in this necklace!

Necklaces With Interest

 

These two necklaces are interesting and delicate and a great way to add a touch of whimsy to an outfit. These necklaces invoke a sense of playfulness and curiosity. The ladder necklace makes me think of climbing new heights—never give up and always push forward. The sideways flare necklace reminds to of thinking outside of the box—you won’t get very far stuck inside one, right? Playing around with jewelry designs is fun and exhilarating especially when the results are unexpectedly beautiful. I usually have a general idea of how I want to design a piece, but as I start creating, the pieces normally evolve into something else. I don’t think these pictures do these necklaces any justice; however, I still wanted to share…Enjoy.

Week 8: Chaya Earrings

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This week’s color focus is green: “green symbolizes life (especially new life), growth, fresh, flourishing and prosperity” (www.preciousstonesof thebible.com). Life is the focus this morning.

Proverbs 3:1-4 “My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, 2 for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity. 3 Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. 4 Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and humankind” (TNIV).

God’s Word breathes life into any situation. Read His Word and recall it—it is life-changing. The New Year is right around the corner, let God’s Word be a roadmap this year for a transformed life. I hope that when you look at the color green it will remind you of God’s promises.

 Additional Verses of Inspiration:

Hebrews 10:23 “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful” (TNIV).

2 Corinthians 4:16 “Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day” (TNIV).

Chaya Interchangeable Earrings: Peridot & Olivine Swarovski bicone crystals paired with round Russian Serpentine beads.   Chaya is a Jewish name meaning “life” (babynology.com). These earrings are the perfect sparkly reminder of God’s promises!

 

 

 

Week 5: Burgundy Gili Pendant and Earrings

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This week’s color focus is red: “red symbolizes blood, salvation, redemption, sacrifice, fervent love, fire, courage and boldness” (www.preciousstonesof thebible.com). The only red I had to work with was in the burgundy tone, so after praying for direction, I decided to make a pendant to go along with the burgundy Gili earrings. This beautiful burgundy glass briolette reminds me of blood—not in the gory way, but in the life-changing Jesus way. Ephesians 2:13 “But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ” (NAS). This verse resonates with me because sometimes I feel far off, but I know that I am not—I am saved through Jesus. The pendant and earrings can serve as a reminder of Jesus and His life-saving blood. The earrings measure approximately 2 ½ inches and the necklace measures 18 inches.
