A sneak peak at some special pieces...

 I've been really getting into making necklaces lately. I am an earring girl, through and through. I've started purchasing some necklaces for myself and I'm "learning" how to wear them regularly. It's started a resurgence of me making necklaces, which have been so popular that they don't make it to my etsy shop... my friends have been purchasing them so fast! So today my goal is to make several necklaces to post to my shop so everyone can share in my new passion!









Asymetrical necklaces are a treat. This piece was made with a found resin and floral charm. Found in the sense that they were originally a pair of earrings and I lost one of the earrings. I've been holding onto this charm for several years waiting for it to tell me what it wanted to be. Now a friend owns it and it has a brand new journey to enjoy:




Another magical piece that I've enjoyed creating for special requests: Bracelets. If there's anything I'm less apt to wear than a necklace it's a bracelet. Again, earring girl here. But a couple of my friends have been asking me for bracelets so I answer the call. And what a pleasure it has been to make them! I even specially bought some nice rainbow agate and fire agate focal beads to make more bracelets for my etsy shop. 
This first bracelet is made of enamel covered penny beads that I get from a local bead shop (who gets them from a local bead maker) here in Maine. These four penny beads represent my friend Alisha's four children (3 boys and 1 girl). 



Here are a couple examples of some earrings I've created with these same penny beads:





More necklaces, bracelets, and Constant Galore coming soon!

  1. I'm an earring girl most of the time, too, but lately I've just been on a necklace kick.

    Those penny beads are cool! I've never seen them before.

  4. I'm a huge fan of the bracelets! But probably because I'm not typically an earring gal. ;D We're from different worlds! Haha.

  10. I love the second two! I think I'm a necklace girl, myself, but I actually don't have pierced ears so I can't really say. :)
