New Valentine’s Jewelry

I have been working on some new jewelry pieces for Valentine’s Day.  I needed more pieces for my online store and for some of the boutiques that carry my jewelry.  This is such a fun time of year for me!  You can see more at my online store here.

I just fell in love with these pink agate beads with little druzy crystals in each bead.

I am loving the contrast between antique copper and deep red beads.  redheartbracelet5

These earrings are crocheted with wire and glass beads… and more hearts!  🙂CrochetedPinkHeartEarB

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I usually don’t post this often (3 times this week is a record), but I made these a few years ago for Valentine’s Day and I wanted to share them with you.  My hubby and I are definitely in the “opposites attract” category.  Although, after 25 years of marriage, we are starting to be more alike.  Now we both forget things, instead of just me. 🙂

New Jewelry for February – Wire Crochet and Embroidery

I have been busy creating new jewelry.  I just love hearts (look at my logo) so this is my favorite time of the year to create jewelry!  And red, I love to work with red and pink, maybe because when I was a teenager, everyone would tell me that I couldn’t wear red or pink because I had red hair.  Don’t get me wrong, green is one of my favorite colors, but I do like to wear more than one color!  Fortunately, when I went off to college I quit listening to what everyone else thought and started wearing all the colors I loved and still do.   These days I wear lots of red (a warm tone red) and pink (an orangish warmish pink) all the time.  And of course I wear plenty of black… it shows of my jewelry so well!  🙂

I have created these intricate designs with wire and bead crochet, bead embroidery and wire wrapping.  All the jewelry pieces are available at my studio or at the artisan boutique, Belle’s Nest in Sierra Madre. Contact me if you are interested in a piece. Prices range from $45 – $150.  I am also looking for a few new places to sell my jewelry.  I love creating jewelry and I have amassed quite an inventory. If you know of an artisan boutique, art gallery or gift store that you think would be interested, please let me know.  Thanks!

Have a wonderful creative day!  Janell
