Sneak Peek at New Projects

I have been busy this week completing and starting new projects. My piece that I will list this week is a peyote bracelet with a twist. It is a black, white and blue piece featuring triangles. The second piece in my "Dare to Be Different" series, this latest piece has some minor embelishment. I have added a relief to the central triangle of the bracelet (see photo) in addition to a "different" color for one of the triangles. Please let me know if you like this new addition. I have also used a new clasp for this bracelet and would like any feedback.

My treasury for this week is a T-West. I have chosen to feature pastel pieces and they are all lovely! Please take a look at
I feature some very talented artists and you will be glad you took some time to view their work.

Finally, I would like to share my latest works in progress. This piece was created to highlight a fantastic stone that I stumbled across. I created a bezel for it using Delica beads and struggled to come up with a necklace to support it. I think I have finally decided to use a spiral herringbone in matching colors. I will remove the gray piece at the end of the necklace and hang the pendant from the spiral necklace. What do you think? How should I hang the pendant?

This final piece is a lariat in the making. I have assembled all of the necessary pieces and just need to do the final assembly. My dilema is how long should I make this? It is my first lariat and I am torn between a short piece to be worn as a necklace and a longer multifunctional piece. What do you think?


  1. Wow, looks like you are really busy and productive. Looking forward to seeing the final photos on the bottom two projects. They are both looking great!

  2. I love seeing working in progress. I'm a big fan of multi-functional pieces so a bail large enough of your first piece to slide off the rope would be lovely. That way you could wear it with or without the pendant.

  3. I really enjoy going through artists blogs and seeing the whole process of their artwork take shape from the beginning ideas to the middle, to the end result!
    I know those are all going to turn out stunningly :D

  4. I love the added texture and color change on your cuff. The others are looking good so far. Can't wait to see the finished pieces.

  5. Your work is so delicate and lovely. Nice to see a group of work at once. Love the triangles. Congrats!
