New Ear Cuff Photos of the Siam Rhinestone

I just made up some ear cuffs in the Siam Rhinestone since it has been so popular in the 7900 and 7700 series ear cuffs. Here is the Siam rhinestone in the 7600 Series and the 7000 series ear cuffs. Aren't they fun in red!

Sorry I was too late for Valentine's Day.
Here are links to order them 7600 Ear Cuff Series and 7000 Ear Cuff Series. Scroll down the page of the 7000 to the Colored Rhinestone offering to find the siam. It's shown in Light Sapphire on the page but the drop down window has the option of the siam.

And check out new photos of the 2800 Series. See them in Black Onyx and Silver. 2800 Series Ear Cuff

Make Earring Mates for the Floral Pendant Necklace

And here is the final instruction offered for the twisted wire Floral Pendant Necklace set. The earring mates. Earrings Instructions Part One
Earrings Instructions Part Two

New Celery Green Freshwater Pearl Ear Cuff

I went to the L.A. Gift Show a few weeks ago and found a bunch of fun stuff to work with. In particular a beautiful celery green freshwater pearl that I've, of course, done up in ear cuffs! I sent it on to Etsy though it'll be offered today on the website and then in my ear cuff promotional for St. Paddy's day, (again ) of course!

Ooo! and I also found some great pendant type fused glass pieces at the gift show to use in my one-of-a-kind multicolor necklaces. And tried scanning them to really get a true to life shot of them. Loved how they turned out!

I'm afraid the one with the triangle-shaped focus piece is already sold. It went pretty quickly at Villagefest last night. They have been selling well there - unusual for this time of year. I'm thinking it might be because they are so fun and we can all use some cheering up. Too much darn worrying about this silly economy, don't you think!

Step 8 - Stringing the Necklace

Here is the final step in the Necklace portion of this tutorial on jewelry done in twisted wire. Step 8 of the Floral Pendant Tutorial

I've been trying to organize these steps for you but sadly, as I'm sure you can see, without success. In one of the many attempts to offer a listing of all of the steps, I put them all in the archives - so if you need to go back and review past steps, look there. I apologize if it's confusing - just think how I feel!! But I won't give up - well, for today maybe, but not forever!

The final bit of this will come next week which will be the instruction on the earring mates. I can't wait to see what you come up with. Hope you're having fun with it!

Step 7 - Connecting the Floral pieces

This is the next step in the Floral Pendant Tutorial which covers connecting the two floral pieces. It is basically the same as step five, except that you don't close the loop until the two pieces are attached. Take me To Step 7
