when i want a quick lift i love to go card shopping..
A few years ago I made this delicate, gold filled chain necklace with a single dark green quartz bead. I made it while living in Knoxville, Lily's bead box in Knoxville is hands down the best bead shop ever!
Check out the website http://www.lillysbeadbox.com/ The opportunity to order supplies online makes my life very easy when it comes to finding the perfect jewels.
I started wearing my necklace more frequently and got a few comments... which inspired me to make a similar one for my sister.
I couldn't wait to bring out my wire, tools and beads to create a little something special for a special birthday. I wanted to incorporate the birth stone colors of September (sapphire), June (pearl) and May(emerald). These are the colors of my sisters husband, her little boy and herself. I came across the perfect colored pearls, deep blue for sapphire, dark green for emerald and of course pearl for pearl. I wired the three up on a beautiful chain, added a green quartz for some umph and ta da!
I had the intention of giving this wreath during the holidays but it turned into a wreath for all seasons. I was thrilled with the way the colors blended and loved the look of the single fabric ball.
Dear wreath, I put a lot of love into stringing you up. I hope you make each person that enters the home of Celeste smile, how could you not be happy with this sweet girl. I know you will be happy in your Colorado home!
This was an engagement card for a sweet couple. I had the idea for a while and so glad to finally stop with my procrastination and make it! Turned out great with more than one button!
