This year has brought forth a new collection of more elegant, higher-end pieces. I have made actually quite a few more than what will be featured here; more photos will be coming soon. This collection augments my original collection of beadworked items with charms.
In addtion to the new high-end collection, I also have created new earring designs with names inspired by my favorite online gaming experience. I also created the “A Lady’s Ransom” style of bracelet, which contains thirty-five Swarovski bicones seperated with pewter rondelles, fastened with a toggle clasp.
Also new in this year’s collection are a series of magnetic stone based bracelets made with crackle glass and other styles of glass beads.
Shows this year included the Grand Valley State University Renaissance Festival in Allendale, MI October 9-10 and the upcoming Athens Craft Show at Larson Middle School in Troy, MI on November 20, 2010.
