I finally figured out what I wanted to make with the beads I received from Aunties' Beads & Jewelry Supplies.  I have seen a lot of asymmetrical bracelets and necklaces lately.  For some reason it took me awhile to get the bracelet to look balanced.  But I think I finally got it right.  This bracelet is made from 12 mm turquoise round beads , 10mm smoky quartz , sterling silver chain and twisted links.  I also attached an initial pendant.

My Favorite Color Combination

I love the look of turquoise and smoky quartz together.  Add a touch of sterling silver and I am head over hills.  I received these beads from  Auntie's Beads & Jewelry Supplies .  They have a nice variety of beads and supplies.  The website also has many video tutorials as well as written tutorials.  I learned some of the basic wire wrapping skills I still use today from their YouTube channel.   Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to make. 

Personalized Jewelry

I have been working on making personalized charm necklaces for my family for Christmas.  The necklaces are made from precious metal clay (PMC). PMC or precious metal clay consists of very small particles of silver mixed with an organic binder and water. The binder burns away, leaving the pure fine silver (99.9%). It is also Eco Friendly (100% reclaimed and recycled silver) .

The first necklace is what I am giving to some of the mother's in the family.  Each charm on the necklace has the first initial of each of their children.

The second necklace is a monogrammed necklace. I am gifting this on to some of my younger cousins.  It is monogrammed.  The monograms are in the order of first, last, middle.  For example:  JPM,  Jacquelyn Patrece Moore

Both necklaces are available at my etsy shop, j. moore design
