Fall Designs: Inspired by the Sea and Nature

I had a really great time designing pieces for my last show of the year, and for the Bethlehem House Gallery, which is having its winter show, and I am honored to be the jewelry portion of it!

The gallery show opens this Friday in Bethlehem, so come on out!  Openings are a great time to have a drink and snack, get the first peek at the new work and meet the artists.  

Here are some of my favorite new pieces I made.

These, were heavily inspired by the sea, and my love of beach combing.  You can read all about my fall beach adventures here, and there is also a sea glass wrapping tutorial.  (we found a TON of really cool bones and sea glass while beach combing)
(this is just a portion of it all)

These pieces are made using sea glass, fossils and some have my polymer focals.  I really enjoy making pieces that resemble my pile of goodies from the beach, but with better composition and wear- ability!

I also made my stone like pieces, some of my favorite traditional wire wrapped chokers.....my classic style as I call it

You know I could NOT do a show so close to Halloween and Dia de los Muertos without making some Sugar Skull pieces

And then there were the other pieces, many fall inspired, some just my new wire bar choker style, that I use to dress up a focal bead or pendant.  

and last but not least, I made new bracelets, which I adore!!!!  I kept one for myself and have been wearing it non-stop.  They are very very comfortable!

Whew!  That was a lot of eye candy!  Anyhow, I am done making jewelry for a little bit.  I need to do my class proposals this week.  Then I do plan to spend a week making rings and earrings for the gallery and for the holidays.  busy busy busy!

If you are interested in any of these pieces, they are all pictured in my photo's on my facebook page.  Just comment on the photo AND send me a message through my business page, and I will let you know the price and if its available.

You can always find my beads and jewelry here on my website as well (just not all jewelry is listed)
