Glass Chip Necklace

I found an interesting tutorial, and decided to use up some of my black and clear glass chips to create this necklace, earring and ring set. I am IN LOVE with it. Not only is it quick to whip up, but they are so delicate.

Ring a Ding Ding

Well, the ring I made on a whim for a customer yesterday went over so well, that I got 2 more orders in. Amazing. I bought a cheap jewelry tray for the rings I've made, and when I laid them all out, I found that I had quite a few! I call this new style "fan rings," because of how they are laid out. I find that making the wire crochet necklaces kind of zens me out, but making rings is a very different brain process- creative and challenging in how I can make plain wire and random beads into something pretty. I love these rings- I might have to make one to keep!

Full Sets Completed!

I just made my first full set of matching jewelry- a ring, earrings and necklace for a customer (I'm just hoping she likes the ring- she only ordered a necklace and earrings!). The ring is a little bit elaborate, but what the hell? The copper rings are a longshot, too- to match a copper necklace I previously sold. She liked the necklace so well, she wanted earrings to match!
