I have not meant to disapear but I have been pretty busy the last few weeks both with family and work. I will share some of what I have been up to, it has been a lot of fun !!
I had a custom order of wine charms for a wedding renewel that I finally got finished up, it was a lot of fun and I am happy to have finished them and plan to get them out to her this week. Once she pays and sends her address they are off to her !!
She saw my listed pirate charms and contacted me and asked if she could get some custom and we got them all figured out and here they are !! 36 charms, three sets of 12, she did a good job picking out what she wanted and it was fun to make her vision come to life !! She was a lovely person to work with and I hope I get to work with her again one day !!
I have another lovely customer who has me doing quite a few projects and I am excited about them all !! The first one we did, we completed last week, was some decorative elements for a small basket for her bedroom. It turned out so pretty, I am thrilled with it. It is so fun to create with someone who has amazing taste and designs well, I am excited we still have to many projects to work on.
Here is her lovely little basket lid, I cut a piece of memory wire to fit around the knob slightely crossed in front , rolled one end, beaded it added the charms she requested from the amazing stash she has ordered and had sent to me. I t hen designed two small dangles for each loop in front, here is the front,
here is the back
I have to give a shout out to two artists whos amazing work is featured in this piece. I will show better pictures of their work, one is the stunning glass purple charm above, the color and sparkle are so beyond amazing, I am in love with this artists work.
her etsy store is My Mystic Gems, and they are are mstic,
her artfire store is http://mymysticgems.artfire.com
Pictures just do not do her work justice, but I will try to show some pictures. I asked her permission to post about her work, I am going to have to buy something for myself for sure. My customer ordered ten of her charms in different colors and they are all spectacular.
I love the fused beads as well, I used them as connectors on the front of the basket, they are so cute and she is very talented and made these for my customer.
They are so pretty and she was kind enough to send me a magnet, which I had forgot to show my customer, so I will send her a picture right now, I had stuck it up my board when I got it and then had to take pictures of all the beads she had ordered that got in that day and forgot completely to show her, what a nice thing for this lovely artist to do !! She knew the beads had been ordered by my customer for me to make her some projects so that was really nice !!
Her name is Natasha and she runs Greenhouse Glassworks out of Colorado, her etsy store is
I hope you will check out these two very talented artists. I got thier permission to write about them but please know I am not getting anything for referring them. I am honestly an in awe of thier work and want to promote them if I can.
I have a very creative and artisic customer, although she will tell you she is not creative, but I am here to say, someone who is not creative coujld not have picked out all the amazing charms and beads she has bought and sent me for her projects.
I am excited to show you the other amazing pieces I have and the artists who created them. It is going to be fun making all the wonderful things we have planned. As we create and I share more of the pendants , beads , and charms she has bought and sent me, you will get a real treat. I have never in my life created with such amazing materials before. It is pure joy to be working with my customer and the materials she has picked out and sent me !!
My customer has said when it is all home, she will be sure and send me pictures to share here with all of you !!
I also made some cell phone charms to sell, listed a few, got more to list, but something fun and differant.
the dragon fly is actually purple and red, the top purple wings are not showing up well in this picture !!
These are just a few of the 22 I made up , and I got about half listed already. The phone plug can be unlooped and they can be looped onto a purse or back pack or anything you like !!
Well, I am closing down the studio for the night.
Thanks for stopping by and please check out these talented artists. You will be happy that you did !!
I would love to hear what you think !!!
