Time for *BLING*

So what the heck have I been up to in the ksyardbird jewelry studio? Well. . . Take a look!

Earrings have been a passion - perfect-for-the bride pearls. . .

 
or for those days when you just feel like a bride. . .


 
 

 
And just for fun, some aquamarine, labradorite, and pearls with sterling silver hearts.
 
 
Or, big black hoops with creamy mother-of-pearl beads and sweet heart-shaped black leaves.
 
 
Don't you just love these wire-wrapped amethysts. . .
 
 
AND these faceted amethysts?
 
 
Which will you choose to BLING those pretty ears of yours?
 
I was especially honored to have this pair of pebble earrings with brass leaves
 
 
featured in an Etsy Treasury recently. I'm So Proud!
 
Now - check out this custom Bridal Set of pearls AND amethysts brought together in a necklace, bracelet, and earrings. Kinda make you want to get married (again) don't they?


And I've been having a GREAT time creating these mixed-stone and bead necklaces. This one shows off pearls, aquamarine, agate, smoky topaz;

 
And this one with pearls, white agates, and rainbow moonstone is my favorite. In fact - I'm wearing it right now and calling it my own:-)
 
 
Know what's really great about these 'necklaces'? They are the perfect length for you to wear them as a single strand, a double strand -


or wrap it two, three, four. . . FIVE times for a GREAT bracelet!

Pearls, smoky topaz, jasper, aventurine, silver. . . crystals - and more!



Here's a lovely set I created for a Mom, complete with removable charms and complementing earrings. More pearls, aquamarine, mother-of-pearl, and so many other pretty stones!


And what happens to all those extra and errant beads left on my work board? I gather them up and string them together for Patchwork Bracelets - how cool is that?

Pearls, hematite, crystals, silver, agate. . .


glass, mother-of-pearl, labradorite. . . and so many other beautiful beads brought together for a work of art for your wrist. As an extra bonus - my workboard gets cleared off AND you get some Bling!


Sometimes there are charms laying around just patiently waiting for their turn to be Blingful. . .


Charming!!!!



Rings? Oh yeah! I'm always sure to have great vintage rings in the studio. Most recently, I chose nothing but the most fun buttons

 
 
and bright colors




to celebrate summer. . .


Calling them my Beach Ring series.

All this talk about bling has me distracted with inspiration and creative urges. . . Time to get back into the studio and make more BLING!

Have a Bling-ful kind of day ~
