Love Conquers All

My first sample from my new collection – Amor Vincit Omnia – (Latin forĀ  “Love Conquers All” ), just arrived.

It’s such a wonderful feeling to open the box, and see your vision into reality.

The never throw away your beads Necklace!

Cleaning my work table, I came upon a cute little box where I keep all my leftover beads from my line of jewelry. Some are jut the last ones, and some are the 2 or 3 left over from a strand, of pearls, in different sizes, rice, coin, flat, kachi, and an endless list of stones, amethyst, peridot, jade, synthetic chalcedony, citrine, even plastic and crystal beads from swarovski crystals.

So I thought “What am I going to do with all this potpourri of beads?”

All of a sudden I had the idea to actually do a bracelet and a necklace that would work as my little bead sample carry on. That way I can pretty much nail the same color of stone, and size when I go to buy more of.

The result here:

I showed it to some of my friends, and now a lot of them want the same !

So I’m doing a few of the bracelets, as custom orders, but only as long as I have the left over beads. The necklace is a one time event, and it’s actually for sale.

So for those that are looking for this necklace which really is a one of a kind, I suggest you go to my booth in Handmade Galleries, that is the only place where you will be able to buy it.
