Yellow Grey and Black Offset Arrow Bangle and Earrings


I really liked the look of the offset arrow pattern with the blue, red and light pink set I finished, so I decided to take it a step further with this yellow, grey and black set.  The lines and spacing are much more randomized with this set and the earrings only match in length, not pattern.


You'll be able to check these out and all of the other arrow sets I've been working on at September's My Arts Night Out!  I will be set up at Piper & Gold at 5pm!

Greys and Gold with a Teal tint Tonal Arrow Bangle and Earrings


I originally was going to stick with greys and gold on this arrow bangle variation but the teal metallic beads jumped out at me when I was putting colors together.  the teal really makes the greys look more blue which surprised me. It looks like you'll be able to pick up this set at the next Arts Night Out in Old Town!

Blue, Red, Light Pink and Grey Offset Arrow Bangle and Earrings


I have been playing with a lot of different bead color combinations while looking for the perfect day-job.  This particular blue is the darkest I have in my bead stash, it's not as navy as I was hoping for, but I do think it still compliments the other colors.  


I like that it looks somewhat patriotic, without being the real red white and blue colors.

Maple Seed Bangle 1


I collected maple seeds a month or so ago and have been rolling a bangle design around in my head.  For the most part, I just needed to get some colors picked and make it.  I already have some ideas of a larger version of this piece with varying seed colors since they go from green and dry to brown.


I'm not sure how successful I think this bangle is, but it's growing on me.  I'm glad I finally got to draft it out!  Any thoughts?  Comments below appreciated.

Tonal Arrow Bangle and Earrings Set in Pinks


I've been enjoying pouring through my bead stash and working on some easy to wear jewelry for holiday sales.  I have WSG Gallery in Ann Arbor confirmed for holiday and the Textile Center Holiday Market in Minneapolis, MN.


This was a fun neutral/pink set, I have some drastically different color combinations coming up soon!

Netting Bangle Revisit


After I finished my most recent leaf lariat necklace and earrings, I wanted to finish up the pack of green 15/0 seed beads that I had sitting in my tray.   I had been wanting to revisit my netting bangles (originally, I called it a wide open bangle) from 2011 as seen HERE.


This piece is half the middle width due to finishing up those green beads, but I have plans to make more of the original larger one to have in my stock.

Green and Gold Lariat Necklace and Earrings Finished!


This weekend I finished up a green and gold lariat leaf necklace and pair of matching cluster earrings.  I'm excited to announce that my jewelry will be part of WSG Gallery's Holiday Show at 306 S. Main Street, Ann Arbor.


Yes, I am already starting to think about holiday shows and I'm making use of my extra time by getting a lot of beading done, so look out for a flurry of new work this week!

More tonal arrow jewelry this time it's a gold base with greens from my bead stash.  I didn't make a necklace this time since I'm not sure how they'll sell, thoughts?
