I have no idea why I have not added any beads to these pieces. I guess I am liking them spare and simple. The necklace isn't finished yet - I just haven't figured out how I want to complete it. I will probably make more links in graduated sizes. The three pieces in the centre are actually fused together!

I am happy with the way these turned out - it has taken me awhile to play and work out the parts but I like the look and think it's worth exploring. I'm sure it's been done already but it is good for me to try to get away from trying to make everything 'perfect'.

The coin pearl earrings - part of my 'sticks'n'stones' series - sold on Etsy. The amazonite ones on saturday at the market. It is getting hard to keep up. The really hard part is that I have to contemplate raising my prices. The cost of silver has doubled in the last couple of months. Selling at the market will be hard if I do that though, as lots of folks seem to think my prices are too high already........When I see silver earring going for less than $20 I wonder 'how the bleep do they do it?'

Bracelet number one is kind of where I feel I'm moving - silver is thinner, starting to work like a line, the dangle in a different spot.
The second: From the pages of this months BeadStyle Magazine. A great way to use up orphan beads. The ceramic focal bead is one of mine
This last is inspired by Hollie of Blindcavefish Studio. Check out her Etsy
