Shop Samples...

I had mentioned in my previous post about creating samples for my Shop with the NEW pieces. It was so much fun creating pieces with the new components. Below are a few digital collages including the samples:

Into the Jungle Earrings

The above earrings are really simple to make, but are real show-stoppers! I used a new Swarovski crystal clover bead in Sunflower, with the new bronze Candice Wakumoto Lauae Fern Leaf Link and gold-filled earwires with 3mm Stardust beads.

A Time for Love Bracelet

The above bracelet is a little bit more involved, but is still pretty simple to make. The new sterling silver Open Heart Charm from Candice Wakumoto is paired with gunmetal chain and jump rings, a black ceramic "owl-eye" link from Nancy Schindler of Round Rabbit, a keyhole "mini-Tart" from Glass Garden Beads, a ceramic timepiece link from Earthenwood Studio, a smooth, matte onyx bead, and a sterling silver toggle from my family at Green Girl Studios.

Peony Morning Necklace

This dainty necklace features the new bronze Peony Link from Candice Wakumoto. I used it with a new Swarovski crystal mini-pear pendant and some wire-wrapped chain made of tiny crystal rondelles. I used a gold-plated, swivel, lobster clasp (not shown). It's a delicate design that is perfect for spring.

If you haven't stopped by the Shop already, make sure you swing by to see all the new pieces! I am especially excited about all the new pieces from Candice, which you can see by CLICKING HERE.
