I've been going thru all my jewelry, taking photos and getting pieces ready to go up on Etsy. I use to have an Etsy shop but I closed it down a couple of years ago because I just wasn't putting in the time/effort to keep it going. I am feeling I am ready to try it again though. It can be a tough racket, making jewelry, there are lots of artist out there. I figure it's worth a try, even just to show more pieces and give me more of a kick in the ass to get things made. :)
This bracelet here I made not too long ago. The beads are glass, which are handmade by me, with Swarovski and sterling silver accents. The glass I used is Moretti (from Italia), the color are light turquoise and dark ivory. I added a little silver to the mix, and they came out with this wild bit of green in them! They reminded me of Earth, like the view of a map, hence the name. Maybe it's a little cheesy, but I like to give all my creations silly little names since they are my bead babies.
These are a pair of custom earrings I made for a customer who bought a bracelet from me. I'm really happy with the way the design worked out so I'm going to make more with different colors.
If anyone has an questions about my jewelry creations please leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers.
