While reading one of my favorite blogs to follow, The Beading Gem's Journal (, I came across a website called ( This web site is full of knowledgeable jewelry designers. They are very friendly and made me feel very welcome. I have found a lot of techniques I want to try while browsing this site. I recommend joining this site whether you are just thinking about starting jewelry making or if you are an experienced jewlery designer.

Works in Progress

I have been working on a few resin as well as clay pieces. Most are earrings but I did manage to get two bracelets done. I will post the a picture of the finished product.


I have started a new bracelet made of turquoise colored shells, pearls, and other beads that I am not quite sure of. I started by placing the turquiose shells on a silver chain.

Next, I placed the pearls. I have gotten stuck at this point. I know I want to add different greens. I have to sit this one to the side and begin on something else. Something will come to me.

I finally finished the bracelet. I think it turned out nicely.

I have been trying to find something to do with the pearls I found while out shopping for beads. I finally decided to try this wire wrapping design I found on . I think it came out well for my first try. I am going to make some earrings to go with it.
