Brown Lampwork Beaded Necklace with Red Stripe Agates

Rootbeer Barrel Lampwork Beaded Necklace with Agates

  • Necklace for women
  • Size: 21-inches
  • Materials: Plated metal, lampwork beads, seed beads
  • Color: Brown
  • Stock: JN-2014-02
  • Blue Morning Expressions

As someone who loves to wear jewelry that is a one of a kind piece, you will love that I created this necklace just for your wardrobe. The lampwork bead focal piece is called a tootsie roll bead for obvious reasons, but the glass artist swirled the bead with rootbeer colored glass with foam swirls, which makes this one of a kind bead a perfect complement to any color, no matter what your wardrobe choice is for the day. The necklace is subtle and the perfect length to work with any high top blouse or scoop neck t-shirt.

About this necklace for women

The lampwork bead has tiny bubbles of glass added to the exterior of the barrel, and the glass artist added two rootbeer glass spacer beads that I topped with tiny daisy spacer beads. Those Tibetan style daisies have been added to the ends of the barrel as well.
It took me some time to decide on the right beads to use to complement the pretty rootbeer beads. I wanted to draw the colors of the beads out while bringing the jewelry design together. I added red striped agates to match the little bubbles. The agates have enough light colors that they match the foam in the lampwork glass beads. I used silver-plated spacers between the agates.

How this women's necklace is finished

I decided to finish the necklace with tiny gold metallic seed beads with iridescent colors that flash in the sun. The seed beads are Jablonex brand. Your new necklace is finished at a 21-inch length, which is a nice length for lower necklines. I completed the necklace with a Hand Made with Love heart charm and a silver-plated toggle clasp.

Since I love lampwork beads, I do my best to find some of the most unique and magnificent beads that I can find. I only buy from flame artists and never buy cheap imported glass beads.
This is a glass beaded necklace for women; take care to handle it gently with love.

Buddha Yoga Earrings Amethyst Crown Chakra Meditation Handmade Jewelry


buddha crown chakra yoga earrings gift for women

The meaningful "Meditation" handmade earrings feature artisan copper Buddha charms and faceted purple amethyst gemstones - perfect yoga jewelry for women.


Filled with the serenity of a meditating Buddha, the well named MEDITATION handmade earrings are meaningful gift idea for the woman who practices yoga, meditates or is a Buddhist. The one of a kind earrings feature artisan copper Buddha dangles and faceted purple amethyst coin gemstones. The Buddha charms were handmade from beginning to end from copper metal clay: shaped, carved, fired in a kiln and then given a warm copper patina. The solid copper Buddhas are raised against the background in a modified meditative lotus pose. As you can see, the details of the design are amazing. The charms are slightly domed and the back is fairly smooth, but you can still see a bit of the Buddha design (see photo # 8). Since the Buddhas were individually created, they are very similar but also a bit different, something that makes them truly unique!  To represent the crown chakra, our connection to the universal energy or life force, translucent violet purple amethyst gemstones was wire wrapped above the Buddha charms. The shape of the amethyst is a thick coin circle shape and they are faceted, lending subtle sparkle to the earring design. Since the amethyst is translucent, they positively glow when the earrings are worn. Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the MEDITATION earrings will be a welcome gift for the woman who loves unique spiritually uplifting Buddha yoga jewelry.

Blue Flower Polymer Clay Bead Necklace with Swarovski Crystals

Blue Flower Handmade Beaded Necklace for Women

I love this necklace. I created these little 12mm blue and white flower handmade polymer clay beads for a necklace, but did not know how I would finish it off. I just knew that the flowers were pretty and dainty. So, when I found these powder blue Czech druk beads, I noticed that they were a perfect match to my little blue flowers.
Because I love contrasts and for some reason have been so passionate about teal and green, I used 4mm fern green Swarovski crystals to offset the little flowers and add a big shout of color.
In order to compliment the green beads, I threw in more than 100 little Jablonex green seed beads to finish off the necklace.

How this fashion necklace is finished

The necklace is ended with a couple silver plated spacers and a toggle clasp. I added a Made With Love heart charm to the clasp.
This necklace is perfect for yourself, but it would make a lovely gift for a woman in your life. This could be mom, grandmother, sister or aunt. It could even be for your BFF. It is very feminine and very colorful.
It is lightweight and the polymer clay beads are all handmade with my own clay flowers. You will not see another set of beads like these since I only made one set and this is it.

The necklace is just about 20 inches.

  • Type: Necklace
  • Materials: Polymer clay beads
  • Size: 20 inches
  • Color: Blue and green
  • Stock: JN-2013-10
  • Blue Morning Expressions

More about this beaded necklace

The necklace was finished with brilliant kelly green clear Jablonex seed beads. They are a wonderful compliment to the other teals and blues. This is a bright and fun necklace.

Week 4 Countdown to Christmas 2019

The week 4 of the Countdown is now posted! Sorry it took me so long to post.  Week 4

Dragon’s Blood Jasper Gemstone and Lampwork Beaded Necklace

Multi-Strand Beaded Necklace with Lampwork Dragon Scale Bead and Dragon's Blood Jasper

Draco
The constellation of the dragon is called Draco, which is Latin for dragon. It never sets for those who observe it from the northern hemisphere.


The dragon eye in this beautiful artisan lampwork bead is the focus of Draco, and is the second in my series of ten Dragon Eye Series of necklaces. This bead was formed from fire in Kentucky, and the artist has coaxed gorgeous colors from her threads of glass. Draco's pale amber eye is filled with swirls of purple and rust oranges deep inside the eye. The colors are formed around the tiny pupil that stares without blinking.

Draco's eye is enclosed in the green and yellow reptilian scales that surround it, and there are tiny points of amber that sweep along the eye to the edge of the front. The backside of the 30mm bead is rich with scales in green, gold and amber glass. Each individual scale is rich with color and visual texture. The bead is silky smooth with the exception of the eye and the tiny points of glass that accent the eye.

A Stunning Statement Necklace

I purchased the dragon's blood jasper specifically for this bead. The jasper gemstone is polished and natural. I used ovals, 4mm and 6mm round stones for this three strand necklace. The strands are dashed with 4mm Swarovski crystals in blood red and smoky black diamond bicones.


I finished the ends of the strands with Czech seed beads in russet cranberry to match the red Swarovski and the blood red in the jasper. The ends of the necklace are finished with silver toned crimp covers and wire guards that are hung on a pewter toggle clasp. The strands are graduated with the longest strand being 22-inches. This is also the strand that is home to Draco's eye.


The entire necklace is a stunning example of talented glass work and gorgeous natural stones.
It is a conversation starter, and it is an elegant piece to wear to parties or other events.


Where did you get that awesome necklace?! That's what your friends are going to ask when they see you wearing this mulit-strand dragon’s blood jasper gemstone and lampwork bead beauty.

There is only one of these. Buy it now.

  • Style: Necklace
  • Materials: Glass, jasper, Swarovski crystals, plated metals
  • Size: 22 inches at the longest strand
  • Stock: Draco
  • Blue Morning Expressions

This necklace has been created using a beautiful lampwork (glass beads created with a torch) bead from a talented glass artist. I used dragon's blood jasper gemstones to give this necklace even more power than the eye of the dragon. Draco is named for the constellation that is seen in the northern hemisphere and created from the torch of one of my favorite glass bead artists. This necklace is multi-strand and the dragon's blood jasper is in many sizes and shapes. I added Swarovski crystals for even more color and sparkle.

The longest strand is 22-inch where the lampwork bead lies.

Since I love lampwork beads, I do my best to find some of the most unique and magnificent beads that I can find. I only buy from flame artists and never buy cheap imported glass beads.
These are glass beaded jewelry; take care to handle them gently with love.

Swarovski Skull Earrings, Rainbow Halloween Day of the Dead Jewelry


dia de los muertos day of the dead swarovski crystal skull earrings

The "Sparkling Skulls" handmade earrings feature Swarovski crystal skulls and Swarovski crystal bicones, both with an aurora borealis finish, for maximum sparkle!


If you are looking for a pair of maximum sparkle Halloween or Day of the Dead skull earrings, look no farther than these amazing jewelry beauties! The SPARKLING SKULLS handmade earrings feature two types of Swarovski crystals. The first are amazing Swarovski crystal flatback skulls. They are faceted and have a rainbow aurora borealis (AB) finish for great color shift depending on the angle of the light, as you can see in the photos (which certainly don’t do the earrings justice at all). Purples, pinks, reds, blues, teals, yellows and browns are just some of the colors that glitter and flash with a 3-dimensional feel at each slight movement of the head. Pewter bails (see photo # 9) were securely affixed to the back of the Swarovski skulls with industrial strength glue so the skulls could be wire wrapped with sterling wire to the upper part of the earrings.  More sparkle was added to the one of a kind earrings by adding more Swarovski crystals. The 6 mm bicones are a clear but have an AB finish added to ½ of the crystals for even more color shift to the earrings design.  Created for the woman who loves uniquely sparkling Halloween and Day of the Dead jewelry, the SPARKLING SKULLS earrings were carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs.

  • Metal: pewter (bails) and sterling silver

Toes in the Sand Wine in My Hand Bangle Bracelet with Charms and Swarovski Crystals

Beach Bangle Bracelet

Nothing brings out the sense of relaxation like the beach, unless it is coupled with a glass of wine. This bangle bracelet features a 1-inch round disk charm that lets everyone know where you would rather be. Toes in the sand, wine in your hand, and to make it even more beachy, I added a flamingo charm and a pineapple charm. This is a great gift for a friend who loves the ocean.
I finished the bracelet with some sparkle by adding two 6mm Swarovski crystals in pink and yellow.
Adjustable bangle lets you decide the size, but it is best at around 7-inches or so.
