Good Friday Morning!

Good morning everyone!! Happy Friday!!
Yesterday we finally saw the sun in almost 3 weeks. I was feeling pretty good so I became a bit creative. Here are some pictures of my newest creations ... I guess you can call this a sneak preview since they have not been added to my Etsy store yet!

What I need from you, is suggestions on what to call them. I'm terrible with names. Please give me your opinion!

These pretty earrings are Swarovski Comic Beads and bicones, set with Sterling silver spacers, head pins and ear wires. They are Crystal copper in color.

These little beauties are Swarovski Baroque Beads in a Black Diamond color and black bicones. They are wire wrapped with Argentium Sterling silver wire and hung on Sterling silver ear wires.

And last but not least, my latest purse/zipper pull. I'm not sure of the appeal of this one. The beads are a muli color and the dangles at the bottom are stars. What do I call it?

A Week Of Purse Pulls

This has been a very stressful week for me! Many changes being made. I had to change my Etsy name, my twitter name, and I'm working on my website name right now. When I get stressed out, I create! Purse Pulls!!

This one I call my "Crazy Color" purse pull! And it has already been listed on my Etsy shop. I love it! It's so colorful!

This one I call my "Brown Eyed Wonder!" I love the beads! Who doesn't own a brown or black purse?

I had trouble coming up with a name for this one. I simply call it "Green Swirls and Leaves!" Not too original, but it does describe it, don't you think?

I call this one "Color My World." The purples in it are amazing!! Unfortunately, the pictures just don't do it justice! It has been posted on Etsy!

This is one of my brand new tonight purse pulls! I made it this afternoon. I could sure use some help in giving it a name!! Any suggestions? It hasn't been listed yet!

I've made and sold 2 of these...very similar, yet different purse pulls. I love the green! Could I call this one, "Creme de Menthe?" I made it this afternoon too, and it is not named or listed.

This great heart beauty has a secret!! The middle bead glows in the dark and shows up green!! I found that out by accident tonight!! That makes this one so special!! What do I call it?? "I've Got A Secret?"
As you can see, I've been busy! It keeps my mind off the stress I'm under. I hope you enjoyed the preview too! Have a great week!

Brainstorm update!

Looks like we're going to call them brooches! And I'll advertise them for use in many different ways. Hats, headbands, scarves, knee socks, lapel decor, etc. Thanks for all your suggestions!

My Latest Brainstorm! Hat/Headband Charms


While sitting in the Doctor's office this morning I came up with, what I think is, a brainstorm! I was trying to decide what else I could make in the jewelry line that would be appealing to people. So I decided that maybe some hat/headband charms might be the thing!! What do you think? The one above and below is made with an Antique Ethiopian coin-silver telsun. And has dangles of olivine and dark yellow crystals and serpentine spacers. It is 1 1/2 inches in length, and 3/4 inch wide. So much smaller than it appears. I apologize for not showing it on a hat, but I don't have one.

The wooden one below is a wooden feather with Moakaite cushion beads hanging from it. This one measures 2 3/4 inches wide and 1 inch long. Again, smaller than it appears.

These are very lightweight, and so would be good on any hat, I think!
Before I would post them on etsy or my website, I would borrow a hat and take pics of them on a hat to get an idea of how they would look.
So, what do you think. Would there be a market for these? If so, what kind of price do you think I should put on them? What do I call them?
Any input on these questions would be very much appreciated!!!!
