by Nancy Vaughan. (San Diego, CA) Originally the circle section in the necklace started as an experiment. I wanted to see how a small circle would look inside a larger one that was part of a continuous group. When I finished with the experiment I put away and promptly forgot all about it. A couple of weeks ago I was going through a box of samples and found the … [Read more...] about A Circle in a Circle

by Nancy Vaughan. (San Diego, CA) I've been thinking about this particular challenge for several days.

by zoraida. (patchogue, ny) While playing with copper wire, I somehow made this spiral that become, what looked like, a Yin Yang symbol. I thought it'd make a cool center for a bracelet. Originally, the sides were coiled wire. I was never happy with it, so I took it apart. It seemed stiff and uninteresting. I also wanted it to be comfortable … [Read more...] about Yin Yang Copper Bracelet

I added freshwater … [Read more...] about Woven sterling silver Seahorse
by Lynda Carson. (Spring Valley, CA) Let's keep going with that classiest of haunted beauties ...Morticia...she actually wore very little jewelry, maybe a single pendant necklace.

by Tracy Martin aka. nutkitten. (El Centro, CA) Hi Rena and everyone. This necklace I call Lemon Drop. I had the yellow and white nugget beads for quite awhile but couldn't find anything to go with them. Finally I had an idea. I have tons of wood beads (usually used them just when I would macrame). Well, I decided to try and paint them. So that's what I did. I … [Read more...] about Wood Beads
