Need to take some more photos, but here are some things I've finished recently:





That last one was one earring of four pairs that I made for the bridesmaids for a wedding on the beach in Maui. Must be nice, huh?



This one was for a wedding, too - different bride.

My gosh, those are beautiful!!! It would seem someone on a pirate ship opened a pilfered Royal chest and found all these gorgeous jewels! And you calligraphy is outstanding, I use to do a lot of it before computers, and appreciate the hard work and steady hand you've got.

Thank you!!! I do love making jewelry. Takes my mind off other, less fun things - like Lyme disease. Plus, I can still do it when my brain fog is at its worst -

I love the one that's got all those lovely pastel colors. They're all beautiful, though! What a talent.

They are wonderful. I love making things with beautiful beads too. It really does chase away the blues. I love making earrings for our cancer center that is located in our town. (I can do it annonomousely (sp?) and I like that. The nurses tell me the patients smile and have fun looking through the basket for their favorite choices. Even a few minutes of smiles in that situation is well worth my efforts now. I enjoy it so much. Your art is beautiful and I am so sorry to hear you have Lyme as does my DD. I know how painful that is. God bless.

I'm sorry that I didn't notice I'd had some recent replies. Didn't mean to ignore you! Grammy, that is wonderful that you make cancer patients smile. :)

I've been so tired and so brain dead that making jewelry is about all I get done besides going to work. I don't have to think and can just sit quietly.

Here are some recent ones:

Oh, wow - had no idea one of my customers had a Timebomb connection. Could you send me a PM with your daughter's name? (I'd be very curious!)

Absolutely gorgeous! I just have one question, are the strands all individual or are they actually intertwined through the beading process?

You have a great eye for color and placement!
 

WisconsinGardener

Loony Member
Thank you! The strands are intertwined and share beads here and there. It's the only way to keep the loops loopy. It's kind of sewing with beads.

LOVE the crystal one, gorgeous! I still like the one on the pirate ship as well.

Hey, did I ever post about Gary Blier? He says he can help get rid of Lyme and has a 90% success rate. It seems like it couldn't work, but I spoke to several people who used him and they raved. Here's how to get a free video and learn what he does, you can also sit in on one of his sessions (everything's done by phone). http://advancedcelltraining.com/

As soon as I can save up enough money I'll be contacting him to begin sessions it's not super expensive, it's just that I am that light in the pockets.

Wish you could see this one in person. It turned out really well. It reminds me of those elegant summer garden parties of the early 1900's. Need to get better pictures of it!

Your artistic settings are as beautiful as your jewelry. I have never seen anyone set up beautiful settings like you have.

I especially like your newest necklaces. They really would demand attention!

WG, you really do have a talent for combining elements and colors.
Some of us are not as fortunate to be blessed in that way!
You display them beautifully.

Thank you!!! When you sell online, all you have is that picture. When I can, I try to set the scene to match the flavor of the necklace. Not always possible, but I try.

I did pretty well last year, but this year - with no particular change at all - I have sold nothing since March. I think people have a sense (I know I do) that fancy jewelry is not a high priority in light of things to come. I still make it because I have tons of supplies and it's good therapy to make something beautiful.

Your pieces are gorgeous WG, and I need to take lessons from you on setting up the photos. Your pictures are outstanding.

Sales have dropped off for me too. June was decent, but I've only sold a few things since 4th of July week. Like you, I'll keep plugging along since I already have the supplies. Can't eat 'em, might as well make pretties.
