 I am supremely happy with the pieces in this particular update! The bears above are my fave! They were a bear to make (haha) but so worth the work. Hollow and colorful... a great focal bead!





 I am also tickled with these hollow acorn box beads. My favorite time of year is quickly approaching and I just love to make Autumnal feeling pieces.





I have used this stamp in the past (it's one of my absolute favorites!) but never in this shape. 





It's also that time of year when I can get away with making bat themed pieces. Yay for bats! 




 I'm really digging these LARGE double sided beads. Star Pillows is what I call them.




Lastly, we have some sweet birdy charms! Sold in matching pairs. Too cute!

 Large Double Bunny Buttons! Say THAT ten times fast. :) 
These buttons are a big size (2 1/4" in diameter) which means they are perfect for that special jacket or handmade purse. Or whatever else you can think of, for that matter! 




Another labor of love. These shadow box beads are covered in patterns in every way - front and back. They look great coming or going!




 Here is an older design that I haven't made in quite some time. Super pretty and girly.




 Double sided sunflower beads!




Over the next few months I am going to be going through all the unglazed pieces I have been accumulating in my studio and glaze them. The three scarab pendants shown above are part of that clean out. 




These are really large cabochons. They have no holes which means that you can do whatever you want with them - glue on a bail, make a prong setting, bead weave around them.... it's up to you! 




And here are some more miscellaneous pieces I glazed last week. I will probably do these pieces in lots of three for a bargain price.

 I spent a ridiculous amount of time glazing the Happy Floral Pendants shown above. Every time I start a project like this I have a moment when I remind myself that it's going to take a long time to get the job done, and every time I convince myself that "this time" will go faster. Well, it never goes faster, but I am always thrilled with the results, so I guess I will get over it. :)




I love these extra chunky and primitive beads. They are big and have a large hole. There is color on the inside and the out. 




Antique Bird Shadowbox beads! These are larger and would make a gorgeous focal. 




Super fun flower/heart connectors. A very versatile. 




The texture of these leaves is so interesting. Big and small pendants. 




Last up are some double sided beads in a fun knot pattern.

 More color color color! I'm addicted. 
First up are some awesome shadowbox beads featuring one of my favorite old designs, Petals Upon Petals.




I think it's been about two years since I made these firefly pendants. I thought summer was the perfect time to revisit them. 




I enjoyed this texture so much in my last batch that I decided to make some buttons with it. They will be sold in matching sets of two and are the perfect size for a bracelet focal or to add to your favorite hand knit project. 




Super colorful hollow double ended barrel beads! 




Little cutie posy buttons! Sold in matching sets. 




I love these large focal donuts! Very graphic and bold! 




I had several of these pendants hanging around my studio unglazed forever so I finally decided to finish them up. I first offered this design well over a year ago (maybe two).

 I know I say this a lot but.... I LOVE THIS BATCH OF PIECES! The fun thing (for me) about constantly challenging myself to make new and fresh designs is that I am never bored. I am always working on and improving techniques that I have been developing for years now and IT NEVER GETS OLD.  I love it. :) 

First up is the above batch of paper stamped pendants. Paper stamping is a technique I have been playing with for years and it illustrates perfectly why clay is my favorite medium.You don't need much to make a mark, even paper will do.




My love affair with my watercolor technique continues with these lovely pendants/connectors. The final results are always surprising and I continue to learn from them. If I had to name my biggest obsession it would be COLOR. 




Nice big fat double sided juicy heart pendants! 


 

These crazy beads were super fun to make! Stacked and loaded with personality! 




 Happy as a clam shell beads!




Three piece pendant sets! 


 

I've been trying to get some finished jewelry in the shop over the past few weeks.
I love how this pair came out. I really want to keep them... 




And this pair.... :)

 Whew! It's been a crazy past few weeks. I got a little behind in my updates but I made up for it by working extra hard to make some fantastic things! 

First up are some awesome BIG faceted headpins.




Colorful pinwheel double sided beads. 




LOVE these little printed charms! They will be sold in sets of four, I think. 




Petal connectors, sold in sets of two! 




 I've had some thistle requests so here they are!




And lastly I've also had some two part butterfly requests. So there they are!
