This is the little thankyou pic I got in an email from my neice Kilynn..she lives on the mainland. She's wearing the little kimono style dress and playing with a japanese fan and a little silk purse...I sent her these because she loves to play dress up :) I used to love to play dress up when I was little :) I was going to send her a hula skirt but someone already beat me to it :(

I've been sick AGAIN...so was stuck in bed and managed to make this..I absolutely love the rich colors! Not too fond of doing all the wire wrapping, but the end results are so worth it :)
This bracelet was made using the new bright emerald green coin pearls I just purchased. The color is gorgeous..I should have ordered more. I'm also in love with the huge chocolate peacock semi round pearls inbetween each coin. I have been saving them for just the right piece and felt this was it. Dangles are more pearls and olive and smokey quartz Swarovski crystals
and this one has white coins with very light pink potato pearls inbetween. Dangles are pink nugget pearls with opal aurora borealis Swarovski crystals.
It's available in my shop here
My head isn't quite as spacy today so I'm hoping to get to creating with my other new pearls I showed you. Either that or I received another pearl shipment in yesterday and was very pleased with some giant magenta keshi (aka 'reborn') pearls...they are so beautiful and so different looking from other keshi pearls I have... I hope I can do them justice.

I've been wanting to get my hands on some deep purple peacock coin pearls..but the ones that came in were more green and had too many broken or popped blisters on them for the expensive price so I sent them back. I did end up with two new colors though and am anxious to create some new jewelry:
Bright Emerald Coins
Lilac Noir Coins
I've had light purple before..but this purple has more red then blue in it..so I'm hoping for some new inspiration :)
I finally posted a few pairs of ear threads to the site a couple of weeks ago. I'd sold out of what I had at the craft fair. They are a real fun style...you pull the whole chain through your ear :) Today I got in some vermeil ones..I think my pink tourmaline will look great on those!

wedgewood blue pearls and blue sapphire Swarovksi crystals on 5" sterling chain. This is a very silky sparkly type of box link.

It's hard to capture it in a picture, but I just love the slight pink highlights on these champagne coin pearls...this bracelet has 3 champagne coin pearls and 3 light pink ones (one is dangling while two are on the bracelet)..the Swarovski crystals are called light Colorado Topaz with a 2x aurora borealis effect. This causes flashes of pink on the light topaz color..they go perfect with the flecks of pink in the champagne colored pearls and are one of my favorite Swarovksi colors.
