Purple and Ivory Glass Lampwork Beads

I have two sets of these up for sale.  One of the things I love the most about working with glass is that you never know what is going to happen, between the chemistry of the flame, and the chemistry of the glass!  This particular set of beads, the purple is reacting with the ivory, causing a thin black line between the two.  You can find these beads on Etsy here,  and on
Artfire here

I have added several new metal and stone rings to my shop.  This one is made from Ohio Flint that I dug out of the quarry myself and finished.  This is a large ring, a 10 1/2 and would make a wonderful gift for Father's Day!  You can find it on my website.  Definitely one of a kind!

Subtle Elegance With a Touch of Sparkle!

This beadwoven bracelet was stitched with a needle and thread, in a specific pattern.  I used beautiful Swarovski crystals to give it some sparkle, while the overall look is quite elegant.  Its not a large, flashy kind of bracelet, its more of a subtle elegance although the Swarovski crystals do give it some flash!  You can find this bracelet on my website SilverRiverJewelry.

Copper Etched Earrings

This pair of earrings started life as a piece of copper sheet metal and were hand cut into the shape of teardrops, then a design was hand drawn onto them and etched into the metal.
