This next item didn't turn out anything like I wanted it too.  At first it was going to be a pair of earrings but, I gave up so, it is a cell phone dangle or to hand on teens binder or whatever.
The wire is actually black.  Why it looks blue in the pic, I have no idea!

Dream Catcher Earrings

Usually with dream catchers, I have to do one of them over at least three or four times before I get two that match close enough to be considered a pair.  This time, I did it on the first try.  Talk about a relief, lol.  These will be available on my site later this evening.  (Have a ton of errands to run.  Tax return came in today, lol).

The "Feathers" are silver filigree.



This is totally off the jewelry theme, but.......I went to the IRS site to check on my refund.  So, I go to the "Where's My Refund" tool, fill it out, hit submit..........OH NO!  WE HAVE FOUND AN ERROR AND HAVE REFIGURED YOU REFUND!  Here I thought I was getting back $197.00.......Turns out I am getting back $578.00!   I just love those kind of mistakes!  LOL

Lemon Drop - Last of the accidental citrus theme!

Here's the lemon drop necklace.  I have had the yellow and white nugget beads for quite sometime but could never seem to find anything to go with them.  So.......I decided to try painting some wood beads since I have tons of them!  I think they turned out pretty good and match perfectly.

I tried painting some other wood beads different colors to see how they would turn out.  The yellow ones used for the Lemon Drop Necklace, I used a non glossy finish so they would have a matte appearance.  These other beads, I gave a glossy finish.  A couple of them, I even added some fingernail decals, lol.  Actually, they look kind of like easter eggs!!!!!

I think I need to try some less flashy colors.

Have a new necklace and bracelet.  By accident, they both are on a citrus theme.  The Twist of Lime necklace and the Orange Grove bracelet.  I also completed a necklace this morning called the Lemon Drop necklace, lol. I don't have pics of that one yet, so that will have to wait.

The Twist of Lime necklace consists of three strands, twisted of course, in shades of green.  It  has green, silver streaked, glass beads, round and rondelle crystals and seed beads, all in shades of green.

A Decorative Cross and Jewelry Set

Ok...So, I finally ordered some square wire.  For my very first time working with square wire I chose this decorative cross.  It's way to big for a pendant, but would go great hung on your mirror or over your bed.  I realize that it's FAR from perfect but, I think it could have been a lot worse.  And hindsight being what it is, I probably should have picked a first project that didn't utilize a ton of wire.  But I am blonde, so...go figure.

Red Rose Pendant

This pendant was inspired from a design by Zyta Rogowska.  I Think this is my first design that does not use at least ONE bead or stone.  Hope you like it.
