Beaded Blob Earrings in Blues


As you may or may not have followed, I really love making these 3-D forms.  I'm starting to make the beaded blob earrings again!  These will be headed to the Lansing Art Gallery soon with more blue and purple jewelry!

College Football Themed Bangles


College football is covering the Lansing area with green and white.  When in Rome.... MSU bangles can be found through me OR Sweet Custom Jewelry in Old Town.


HERE is the first block S bangle style that I made, along with a matching pendant.


I was commissioned to make an ILLINI bangle a few years ago, which you can see HERE.



I do have a block M bangle for my own alumni which I am unable to find a photo of at the moment, but I did make myself some blended bead ones for more subtlety which is HERE.

Yellow Grey and Black Offset Arrow Bangle and Earrings


I really liked the look of the offset arrow pattern with the blue, red and light pink set I finished, so I decided to take it a step further with this yellow, grey and black set.  The lines and spacing are much more randomized with this set and the earrings only match in length, not pattern.


You'll be able to check these out and all of the other arrow sets I've been working on at September's My Arts Night Out!  I will be set up at Piper & Gold at 5pm!

Greys and Gold with a Teal tint Tonal Arrow Bangle and Earrings


I originally was going to stick with greys and gold on this arrow bangle variation but the teal metallic beads jumped out at me when I was putting colors together.  the teal really makes the greys look more blue which surprised me. It looks like you'll be able to pick up this set at the next Arts Night Out in Old Town!

Blue, Red, Light Pink and Grey Offset Arrow Bangle and Earrings


I have been playing with a lot of different bead color combinations while looking for the perfect day-job.  This particular blue is the darkest I have in my bead stash, it's not as navy as I was hoping for, but I do think it still compliments the other colors.  


I like that it looks somewhat patriotic, without being the real red white and blue colors.

Maple Seed Bangle 1


I collected maple seeds a month or so ago and have been rolling a bangle design around in my head.  For the most part, I just needed to get some colors picked and make it.  I already have some ideas of a larger version of this piece with varying seed colors since they go from green and dry to brown.


I'm not sure how successful I think this bangle is, but it's growing on me.  I'm glad I finally got to draft it out!  Any thoughts?  Comments below appreciated.

Tonal Arrow Bangle and Earrings Set in Pinks


I've been enjoying pouring through my bead stash and working on some easy to wear jewelry for holiday sales.  I have WSG Gallery in Ann Arbor confirmed for holiday and the Textile Center Holiday Market in Minneapolis, MN.


This was a fun neutral/pink set, I have some drastically different color combinations coming up soon!
