Latest jewelry items

 A bead collection that I made from polyclay, prior to using them in jewelry.

 These are needles that I made. They're used to make the holes in the polyclay beads.
They sell for $5.00 each, plus shipping.
 This bracelet and earrings set is made with jaspers, Czech druk beads, and glass pearls. The earring wires are gold-filled, and the toggle clasp is antique gold-plated. This has been sold, but a set like this sells for $30.00 for the bracelet, $18.00 for the earrings.

 This is a close-up of a pair of earrings strung with polyclay beads that I made, faceted Czech glass beads, faceted crystal beads in a citrine color, and green seed beads. Gold-filled earwires. A pair like this sells for $22.00. *SOLD*
 I made the polyclay heart pendant (it's pictured above) then found these wonderful copper-colored Czech faceted crystal beads. The small round beads are 5mm Czech beads, and there are Czech pressed glass disc-shaped beads between the other beads. The toggle clasp is antiqued gold-plated. This necklace is about 25 - 26" in length.  $55.00.

 Here is a close-up of the copper-colored heart pendant necklace, above.
 This is the heart pendant that I made with polyclay, and wrapped in sterling silver wire. It also has  Czech beads in various sizes, as well as oval polyclay beads that I also made. $60.00.
 Here is a close-up of the polyclay heart that I made, wrapped with sterling silver wire.
 Earrings: gold-filled earwires, genuine citrine chips, freshwater potato pearls, and Czech multi-colored seed beads.  $25.00.
 Here is my silly self, wearing the necklace that matches the earrings above. Double strand, antiqued gold toggle clasp. $70.00.
This jazzy polyclay and jasper beads, along with cranberry-colored glass pearls, and cathedral crystals, is about 26" in length. The larger polyclay beads look like candies - the bell-shaped Czech beads on either side create that effect. The tubular beads are also polymer clay beads that I made - they don't really even look like clay, but come across as glass beads, I believe. $50.00.
