My Jet Team Partner For This Week

As part of the Jewelry On Etsy Team I would like to introduce you to one of our members and an awesome jewelry designer and creator. ArtMadeByTammy.

Her store is full of beautiful handmade necklaces, earrings, hair accessories and many more great creations.

It is so hard to choose a favourite from her store but I just have to show you this matching necklace and earrings. The best part is you could purchase them both for only $30.00 (of course shipping is on top of that) but what an awesome set.

Playing With Glass

What have I been up to lately. Well the kiln has been hotting up and glass has been cooking.

The last few months have had some really hot weekends so I have not really wanted to take the risk of getting the kiln on. This weekend I did.

I have so neglected my handmade radical glass store and thought I better get some new creations on board.

This time I had a play with some 22k gold decals in flowers and butterflies. Last time I tried these the kiln got to hot and the gold just burnt away.

Well I kept a good eye on the temperature this time and please with how the glass fused together.

A Briolette Or Two?

Well I did agree not to buy anymore beads for a few months. I have so many all my storage units are full and there are bags and boxes all over the spare bed.

By mid February I did very well. Only buying the necessary findings.

Then it went wrong. I couldn't stop looking in TexasBeadz store on Etsy. I just fell in love with all her briolettes and was dying to get practicing on my wire wrapping. And the great thing about her store is that you can buy 2 briolettes and not a whole strand. How cool is that.Can I say I have still not bought any beads, these were briolettes, not beads. Oh boy!
I think I have completed 3 more pairs of handmade earrings and probably have 2 more sets of briolettes to play.
