My Passion

I love bling!  If it shines it's for me.  I'm not an earthy girl I want crystal, silver, gold, gems...

Four years ago when my oldest daughter was planning on heading down the isle we were on the hunt for jewelry.  Not finding anything that really rocked our socks I said to her "I can do that"  I had never made a piece of jewelry in my life but someone told me that if I could learn to crimp I could make just about anything.  So I took a class and off I went.

I love beading.  I buy beads and I love to look at them, feel the texture of them...see them shine.  I took more classes.  Then the youngest one decided to tie the knot and of course she was not wanting something on a string!  She comes to me with something in a magizine that she saw that was chain and pearls and crystal and pouted "you can make this can't you mommy?"


I made the whole wedding party for both weddings.  Wish you could see them a little better...the actual pictures of the jewelry blew up on our old computer but the Hubs thinks we have them on a disc somewhere.  I also did her flowers which was something new for me because I'm not an floral person..they are all silk.

Then my daughter from another mother wanted to get hitched and I told her I would do her bling....and bling this girl wanted!

Add the earrings


and the bracelet

Something I enjoy doing and very relaxing.  I hope to show you more pieces soon!

Now if you want to see some beautiful pieces check out the blog I stumbled upon today and check out the jewels and craftyness of Betsy at My Salvaged Treasures...amazing!

I'm enjoying this whole blogging gig and discovering new things to learn everyday...thanks to all my bloggy helpers!

Cheryl sent me over to welcome you to Blogland! I know you will love it here. Your jewelry is beautiful! I caught the bug a few years ago, but I couldn't crimp! I was great with the design and then things would fall apart while I was wearing them. A class probably would have been a good idea. I gave up!
