Working on Jewelry This Week

In between painting and sketching, I have created quite a few pieces of  jewelry this summer.  I have been inspired by my garden and warm and cozy colors.  (I think I am ready for Fall!)   I love the intricate, detailed process of creating wearable pieces.  So this week, I finally got started photographing and posting them to my online store.

Gold and turquoise crocheted earrings with rose dangle by Janell Mithani

I have been finding inspiration in my garden.   I was visiting my mom a few months ago and was peeking through her stash of beads and found a gold metal bead that happened to have slots in it.  I picked up my pliers and peeled back the ends and thought of a rose bud and loved it.  I brought a few beads home with me to create into rosebuds to add to my designs.  I used one of them as a finishing touch on this three strand bracelet, too.

I have really been enjoying working with antique copper wire.

I love the warmth it brings to my pieces. And I am loving agate and turquoise lately, too.

I have been thinking of also opening a store on Etsy.  I opened my site on Storenvy as I had a few friends that had their stores there.   When I tell people where my store is online, most of them have never heard of StorEnvy.com and I find myself explaining it is kind of like Etsy and then they say, “oh, yeah.”

I’d love to hear your opinion about Etsy vs. Storenvy!  Thanks so much.  🙂

Have a wonderful, creative day, Janell
