Beaded Jewelry

Posted in New Jewelry tagged , , , , , , at 11:31 am by jewelrybyleyla

I posted the blue and white bracelet that I made last week.¬† But I couldn’t stop there… I made earrings and a ring to go with it.¬† Ok, so there’s not always a call for a set…but this is an odd set, I still haven’t decided if I’m going to sell these, but I might (in other words… if you tell me you just *have* to have it, I’ll sell it to ya).

My goal has been to use up some of the odds and ends of seed beads that I’ve accumulated with various projects.¬† Upon the completion of the ring, I’m out of the blue, for all intensive purposes.

I love the feeling of the beaded jewelry… the way the beads roll around, its feels slinky and svelte.¬† I’m definitely going to be making more of these…

New Stuff

So, as mentioned last week, I’m in the process of making a couple of changes in the shop. I took a whole bunch of new photos yesterday, and edited them today. In the next week, they’ll be making their way into the shop.

For now, check out my new necklace, Amethyst Dreams, which coordinates great with my Passionately Purple earrings that debuted last month.

I’m creating separate listing for some of the items that I’ve listed as “take your pick”.¬† Currently, this Quartz Beach Pebble necklace has its own listing, and its rounder buddy will be listed on its own tomorrow. Check back!

Because we need a little bit of spring

Posted in New Jewelry tagged , at 11:35 am by jewelrybyleyla

Supposedly there’s another 6 weeks of winter, if you believe Phil the groundhog. But, we need a bit of spring, some flowers and bright colors. I’ve been playing with this design in my head for a few days, and I’m finally happy with the results. So if you’re tired of winter and snow, check out these bouquets of flowers for your ears.

Creative block?

I’ve been somewhat busy making earrings.¬† I’ve seen and purchased a few new chandelier type findings to help in the expansion of the style of earrings that I’ve been making.

But while I’ve been doing that, I have a couple of loose necklace pendants sitting on my work table.¬† A piece of amethyst and a piece of amazonite.¬† They are begging to be made into a necklaces, only there hasn’t been a good combination of colors or beads that really go with these two focal pieces.¬† So they sit there… still screaming at me…and I can’t quite figure out what do with them.¬† Hopefully, I can figure something out soon, so that they can become finished pieces.

I will wear purple

Posted in New Jewelry tagged , at 6:12 pm by jewelrybyleyla

When I am an old woman,
I shall wear purple – –
With a red hat which doesn’t go,
and doesn’t suit me. (Jenny Joseph)

I often get into a purple mood, and today was one of those days. A new pair of earrings came from this mood. Passionate about purple? You don’t have to be old, these will be great for anyone… Watch Etsy tomorrow for the listing.¬† And just maybe there will be a pair of red earrings as well.
