recent orders/projects/Alchemy

I've put all of my new ideas and planned projects aside for the past week or so because of all of the custom work that I've had!  I've also been working on a couple presents.  The first will be part of my new line of items that I'll be revealing soon.  The other one is my first tubular triangle pendant.
I know that it's hard to tell in this picture, but the dark beads are a wonderful, deep shade of purple.  For those who like this color combination, you will be seeing more of it in the future. :)

One of my two recent Alchemy bids that I won was actually for supplies.  I haven't gotten into destashing on Etsy, but I thought that this would be an interesting opportunity.  This is what I put together this week.

The other Alchemy bid that I won is for the custom pearl and lemon quartz cuff that I won't be working on until sometime next week when all of the supplies come in so I'll have more details about that then.  The other order that I've been working on this week is the wedding order that I mentioned at the beginning of this week.  Here are the two made to order pieces.

The newest version of my Silver Links Ocean Beaded Bracelet.  Yes, these made to order pieces are small so they'll fit the young flower girls.

 And the newest version of my Green Ocean Fantasy Beadwoven Bracelet.  I still have some of these polka dot beads in blue (as well as a few other colors) so I might make a slightly modified version to sell.
I'll post pictures of the complete bridesmaid wedding order after the bride has received it.


  1. I love the color combination of that pendant! Do you ever make heart shapes?

  2. Thanks Sharla! I e-mailed you about hearts, but I'll post it here, too:

    Thanks! I haven't done a heart shape (yet). I haven't seen any on Etsy that are a 3D heart shape. I have seen some like this: or that are a flat peyote design like this: . At this point, in my Etsy shop for shapes, I have leaves, triangles (both flat and tubular), and my folded squares like this: I could definitely do flat circles as well. I honestly don't know if I could swing a 3D heart, but if you'd ever be interested in something like either of the heart pendant listings I put here, let me know. :)

  3. I'm not fond of green but I am so taken with that bracelet in the 4th picture
