A Giant Mess

Because I often have multiple projects going at the same time, some days my craft table looks like this.  I like my supplies to be very organized so this is a huge mess for me. I have paper, yarn, beads and more scattered everywhere.  I am sure that lots of awesome creations will come from this mess.

New Necklaces

Here a few of our newest necklace creations.  We have used our new bird and key pendants that I recently posted about.  These necklaces turned out beautifully.  We also strive for a vintage feel.

Seed Beaded Cabochon Necklace

This is a necklace I created using seed beads, a jasper cabochon and a piece of Ultrasuede.  The tiny seed beads are stitched on one or two at a time all the way around the cabochon.  Trimming the extra fabric away was the hardest part.  You can find this one-of-a-kind necklace at Piccadilly Frilly in Bentonville, AR.

Lampwork Leaf Earrings in the Making

This is a tray filled with lampwork leaf headpins and woven beads getting ready to be made into leaf earrings.  I weave Superduo and Delica beads together to form tiny rings that sit on top of the leaves.  You can find these earrings at Posh Alley Boutique in Rogers, AR.

New Ancient Alchemy Key Pendants

We have brand new crusty keys in our Etsy shop.  These look like they have been hidden on a pirate ship for centuries.  We have other crusty items in our Ancient Alchemy line as well.

Fall Headpins

I have been busy at the torch working on lots of acorns for fall.  These headpins make great charm bracelets and necklaces.  We even have a line of metal pendants that feature an acorn hanging from a branch.  You can find all of these in our Etsy shop.

Block Scarf Project

I am currently working on a scarf design for my mom using luxurious yarn by Koigu.  This yarn is hard to find online, but a Tulsa yarn store, Loops, has a whole display of it.  The colors are all slightly mottled and a few of them have very subtle sparkles.  I am using a block design for which I couldn't find a pattern, so I am designing as I go.
