Mushrooms, Birds, & Handmade Clasps

I haven't been particularly inspired in the last couple of weeks. I don't know if it's the heat, or because I'm looking forward to the new things I'll be getting at the upcoming bead show next month. But I'm just not feeling it. I did, however, manage to come up with a few things last week. I am really enjoying making my own clasps at least.

Anyone know what the pendant is? It was unmarked when I got it a year and a half ago. Some sort of jasper I'm guessing. It's really pretty and goes well with the millefiori/foiled beads I used.

Remember when I made the bird pendants from a mold I created? I do like the way this one came out. I'd made myself a necklace with one at the time, but now that I've made this, I'm going to have to revisit the other one. It also includes some betel nut beads and Czech glass.

 These mod little earrings are blackstone and Czech glass. 

And these cute retro styled mushrooms are paired with faux coral.

Can't wait 'til the bead show. It's no Bead & Button or Tucson, but it's the best we get here in NOLA and I'm excited!


  1. Hi there,

    That cool pendant is amazonite with black tourmaline in it. I can't tell from the picture but sometimes it also has some pyrite inclusions. Love what you did with it!

  2. Love your new pieces - it's clearly been quality over quantity that you've been going for :-) That bird mould is very cool as well. How's your wee doggy doing?

  3. you manage to make so many beautiful things whether you are feeling inspired or not! kudos!

  4. Love it! And yep, amazonite with "stuff".
