Adventures in jewelry making

Tricks and treats… October 30, 2016

Filed under: Archives — Fresh Baked Designs @ 7:02 pm

Tomorrow is Halloween.  Truth be told, we don’t get many or any kiddos at our door in the past few years.  And we do keep our porch light on and buy a couple of big bags of candy in preparation.  Just no little ones in our neighborhood and there are no sidewalks either…not very user friendly.  So, we buy the candy we like to eat and enjoy!  Snickers for me, M&Ms for him.

Here’s the treats…It’s been a busy week.  Tomorrow I’ll do a practice set up for the Holiday Market and see what it looks like.  Pretty sure I have enough inventory, but it’s always good to see if there are any holes.  The rest of the post is just photos…enjoy.

First up, Mother of Pearl, Ghana glass beads,

and cute silver sand dollars.




Recycled glass beads from Ghana in vibrant colors.



Lapis Lazuli and Turquoise.


Love these silver leaf components!



Smokey quartz pairs well with bits of turquoise.



A rare for me set of jewelry in 14k gold filled chain and wire with micro faceted ruby quartz.



A pair of hammer sterling silver earrings goes with everything!

    Where you buy the recycled beads your work is beautiful

    • Good Morning, Clara! I’m happy to share the resource with you. I purchased these beauties on line at Happy Mango Beads.
      Here’s the link:
      They have a huge selection of recycled glass beads from Ghana. If you sign up for their email list, you’ll get notification of their sales as well. These colorful beads are so much fun to use in jewelry. Just be aware that they have very large holes. And they come in various sizes. The ones I used are 8-10mm.
      Happy shopping!
