Cubist Blues Necklace

I love the color of these blue quartz beads so much I couldn’t bear do anything to take away from them. Too simple?

Boho Swirl Radiance Necklace by kittybelle on Etsy


Funky vintage black and white plastic beads hang at random from a large link gunmetal finish cable chain for a contemporary tribal look especially powerful on summer’s bright solids. Closes with gunmetal finish s hook.

lazy day at the lake bracelet

The mysterious blue-grey flash of the mineral labradorite reminds me of dipping below the surface and opening one’s eyes to the sun breaking through cool, natural lake water.
The lake is my favorite place in the world, especially in the summer. A simple tribute like this bracelet helps me remember that the office day will end and the lake is really only ever a drive away.
A copper dragonfly charm seemed the perfect addition to this strand combining three different cuts & quality of labradorite beads. I used a pretty copper leaf & twig shaped toggle clasp to close it.
Posting soon if I don’t sell it at the Craft Party on Friday eve first.



batch of pendants

I created these pendants with story illustrations clipped from two old Readers Digest volumes of condensed books.
The books were part of a three box inheritance from Heather of ReaDo, a local Etsy seller who makes these real snazzy purses with old hard book covers. These are books she can’t use but I might be able to use as binding for that homemade paper I’ll be getting to before the summer is over.
Anyway, I adhered the clippings with a shimmering silver modge podge, then “weathered” the edges with a knife and file before applying two coats of laminate/diamond glaze to seal.
Boring? Maybe but I think they look awesome.
Now… What to hang them from? Suede cord, wooden beads, copper chain?


Green Garnet Gemstone Necklace by kittybelle on Etsy


I’ve become so obsessed with the gorgeous color and quality of this unusual green or “grossular” garnet that I couldn’t bare to detract from the natural beauty of the stone with competing components. For this considerable 20 inch strand, I contrasted rough moss green nuggets of grossular garnet with smooth polished pebbles of grossular garnet, accented only with subtle antique bronze spacers. It’s simultaneously elegant and wild and can be worn with a spectrum of looks from elegant to casual.

wooden circle bib necklace

Finally got around to building this piece I’ve had in my head for weeks. It’s surprisingly comfortable! Very light weight and the wire seems to be holding it’s shape.
