sea green and reworked continued

I finally listed the last button charm bracelet that I made over the summer.

It's available here.  I made and sold one of these a couple years back.  I finally rounded up enough buttons to make another one.  While I was searching for beads for another project, I found the sea green seed beads from this mix.  They coordinate perfectly with this button mix!  This bracelet is packed with buttons.  Each link has 2 buttons on it.

While I was hunting for buttons for my new magnets, I pulled buttons for another charm bracelet like this one.  This particular style has done well so I'm going to keep making it.  I'm planning to add beads to it this time.  I'm also contemplating a couple more of these bracelets.  They were a whim project when I first started selling on Etsy, and they've done really well.  I think it would be great to do some seasonal ones: fall, Christmas, and winter if nothing else.

I've also been remaking a few old designs to update some of my Etsy listings.  Here are the latest ones.  Click on the photos to go to the listings.
The original version of this just had a few rows of red and purple daggers with a seed bead base, but I decided to fully fringe this one with a cube bead base so I could include it in my standard dagger line.  I know, I keep saying that I'm done until I sell one, and then I add another piece to my line.  It does keep pushing the pattern, which has been extremely popular.  Hopefully one of them will sell soon, too.

I mentioned this little pendant a couple weeks ago when I shared a sneak peek of the new coordinating herringbone bracelet/necklace (it can convert to either) that I'll be releasing in 2012.

I only made a couple pairs of these "flying" earrings.  Now that I've done a lot of beaded bails, these little ones work up really quickly.  I may make a few more pairs to coordinate with new listings.  No specific plans at this point, although it's still always available as a custom option.

This is one of my favorite posts from this past week so I'm linking it up with Erika's It's a Wrap Link Party.  Join us!

  13. Wow, thank you for the feedback everyone! I really appreciate your comments on my new pieces. I'm glad that people like the sea green color and the newest dagger bracelet!

    Danielle, I love the shapes involved with jewelry making, too.

    Karen, most of the time it isn't work, especially the creation process. Photographing and listing on Etsy is another story.
