Fun new earrings and more!!

Hello everyone,

I know it has been a while since my last post. It's been a wild time for me. I bought a townhouse and got all moved in. Then I had several jewelry parties just before Christmas along with going to Massachusetts for the holidays. I'm finally getting back to making some new jewelry along with coming up with some new jewelry lines. First I'd like to show off my newest hand beaded ornament I created this year. I used Terrifically Tacky tape to sew/stick the beads on the ornament. They were a lot of fun to make and will be for sale for Christmas next year! If you are interested in purchasing an ornament let me know! This ornament was blue but I can use any color combination.

I am creating a new line of fun, beachy jewelry that will complement the perfect summer outfit. It is called "The Carova Line." This line is named after my favorite beach on the Outer Banks. If any of you have been there, you know what I am talking about. Miles of beautiful beach that you can only get to by 4 wheel drive vehicle. There are lots of wild horses roaming around and it is a lot of fun to go off roading trying to find them! Here is my first addition to this collection:

I used Curled shell beads, Luhuanus shells, Hill Tribe sterling silver snail shell charm, puffed fish charm, and a starfish charm. All connected with a sterling silver fish hook and eye clasp. (not priced yet)

Some new fun earrings I've been creating:

Sterling silver plated filigree earrings, rose Swarovski crystals dangles on sterling silver ear wires $16
Sterling silver diamond chandelier earring, Swarovski crystal dangles on sterling silver ear wires. $18 (Shown with black dangles on the left, and crystal clear dangles on the right)

Sterling silver teardrop earrings, Siam red Swarovski crystal dangles, on sterling silver ear wires $18
Sterling silver plated filigree earring with grey Swarovski crystals hand woven inside on sterling silver ear wires. $18
Sterling silver plated fancy filigree earrings on sterling silver ear wires. $16

And lastly, my handmade wire wrapped hearts that will soon have ear wires on them. Just thought I'd put this picture in there as well since these would be a perfect Valentine's Day gift. I am currently in the process of making cute heart bracelets and will send out a picture of them soon!
