My First Cloisonne Piece

Well, kinda. It’s not done. I just got the cloisonne piece done. Still have to make it into a piece of jewelry. I stayed with easy for my first piece and even then some of my wires moved.

CloisonnePieceThis is 1.5 inches. I put silver under the transparent curves and cells but it doesn’t show up that well. I didn’t do any shading, just plain enamels. I wanted to learn the process. Now I can get more intricate and take my time making a piece. I’m still going to turn this into a piece of jewelry just because it’s my first piece.

Pink Bead Sets

I made some pink and black beads last night, along with some pink and green veiled cane spacers.


Got a couple sets of head pins done too. The wires have been on my work bench for a while and keep moving around. Finally got a chance to get them off my bench.

Last Square Chip Beads

This is the last of the square chip beads. I think I have more than enough to sell at the next bead show.


So glad these are all done. Now I get to move onto something else. Yea!!

Square Chip Beads and Sterling Silver Charms

I’m sure getting tired of making square chip beads. I think my idea of making them in all colors isn’t going to happen. These are the ones I finished up so far this weekend.


And some new sterling silver charms that I’ve been working on for weeks. Finally got around to finishing them up.

More Blue Beads



I’ve never done a picture of them laying flat so while I was lining them up for sizing I took a quick picture to show.BlueSquareChipBeadsLayedOut

Then because I got tired of making the same beads over and over, I made a few kissy fish beads.

No Orange Beads!!!

Still working on square chip beads though….

These are sparkly!! Blue aventurine. I didn’t put the black line around them as I wanted the sparkle to shine through. The spacer beads are made out of veiled cane, some dark green with a lighter green core. They really do look more like they are more on the teal side.

Well, I Lied….

I thought I was done making orange beads but I forgot that I plan to make a bunch of square chip beads and what do you know, the first color I picked up was orange.

CoralSquareChipBeadsActually, these are more coral in color than orange. The other spacer beads are veiled cane. It’s a weird combination, tobacco and opal blue. I think it’s supposed to look like water and rocks and probably looks better on larger beads.
