Yep, got some more done.

Running out of ideas for character beads. Tried a horse. Came out of the kiln looking more like an alien than a horse.

More Zipper Pull/Charms

I have to figure out a way to take pictures of these things. Hanging them isn’t working. They move around and the pictures turn out blurry. And after dropping them twice behind my desk I gave up on getting any good pictures.

I got an order for some mushroom charms….


I fumed the ivory stems to make them look more like mushrooms. Kind of gives it a in the dirt look.


Other more colorful mushrooms. These are fun to make.

Earrings – Yes Earrings

I don’t usually make earrings. There’s something about making the exact same thing twice that I just don’t like. I don’t mind similar but most people want earrings to match. I’ve done my best here even though these are the crappiest pictures I’ve taken in a while. BiwaPearlEarrings

I had to retake this picture, it was so bad. I love Biwa pearls. Hopefully other people do too.


I bought these mother of pearl buttons a while ago. Never knew what to do with them. A few jump rings and a little round gemstone bead works well with the buttons, don’t you think?

RockEarrings RockEarrings2

These are hard to see. They are drilled river rocks. I tried to match them up as well as I could. And by this time, I got tired of making the same earring so I did the wires all different on these.


More round pearl – it’s hard to tell those are pearls and another set that I made round earrings and threaded some beads onto it. Easy peasy.


Also, some clip charms that never got posted.

More Clip Charms

Made more beads for clip charms. Glad these are easy and quick to make.


Got a couple of other beads done.  I’m kind of liking the bee bead. It’s just too cute!! Bee-Fish

Clip On Charms

I made a bunch of random beads for cell phone/zipper pulls last night:


I quickly put together these clip on charms. I think the clip gives them more versatility. And they are quick to make. Going to work on more beads like this tonight.

More Trees and A Pendant

I thought I was done with trees but decided to make some for presents. Here’s the last two I made.

Trees3They are so addicting!! I thought about using different colors but since they are ornaments and trees, using the red and goldstone seems like the only fitting colors except for green.

I was also able to get another Japanese crest pendant assembled.

AsianCrestFront3Just took a picture of the front since the back is the same as the previous ones. I have one more in the works……
