Spring Is In The Air

I'd been staring at the beads from Raida Disbrow and EclecticPrairie for quite some time.  I'll admit it - I was petting them happily.  I loved the color combos and the feel of the beads.  I tend to like bright and happy colors so this played right into my preferences.  Plus, I was in the mood for a nice simple necklace with some sterling and lovely color pallates.  Gorgeous!

How cute is that butterfly? I adore it!!! This is considerably shorter than my normal necklace that I tend to lean toward. At 19", it sits perfectly on me. I can't wait to wear it with a fun dress.  I also have enough beads left over to make an entirely different necklace or a coordinating bracelet. I haven't decided which I'm going to do.

My biggest problem is that I don't like to sell any of my jewelry. I like to hoard it so I can play with it and wear it.  For those of you who like to sell, any tips would be appreciated!

I'd love ya'lls feedback on my work.  Please feel free to leave comments in the box below.  :)


  1. I too find it hard to part with my hand-made jewellery - but it's come to a point where my bead fetish is costing half the earth, so I kinda need my hobby to start supporting itself!

  2. I love earrings and wear my own designs every day. I just make an extra pair of everything I like for me and sell the rest!
