Snow Day Earrings

 I went crazy making earrings this week.
Here are some pics of the latest. 
All are made with surgical steel ear hooks, except the copper ones.
Above is crackled silver ceramic.
 This one is a creamy brown ceramic with copper.
 This is 2 gemstones, magnesite & garnet.
 This is black glass beaded.
 This one looks like a smoked or fired crystal, it looks fired on one side and clear on the other.
 These are semi precious china charoite, a dark purple gemstone with a glass bead on top.
 Again, not sure which gemstone these are, either turquoise or dyed magnesite.
 This is also a gemstone, maybe rhodocrosite.
 Orange sea glass.
Green leaf carved sea glass.

Snow Day Jewelry

 I had fun on our long snow wknd, making these beauties.
The above one is copper with gun metal bronze, and ceramic zebra striped beads.
 This one is silver, gray and slightly navy glass beads.
 This one has green and white glass with some orange sea glass. And what's better? Earrings to match!!

I am not positive on the names of these beads, they are all gemstones. My guess is Rhodocrosite.
The last 3 are made with a non-tarnish silver craft wire.

 Orange sea glass.

 Some agate beads with brown artistic wire.
 Serpentine butterfly shaped bead.
 This set is more coral than what it looks like in the pics, I matched them with a pale blue agate, and citron quartz.

More pendants with my signature spiral.

Unity May/June Sketch Challenge 04 & MF Tuesday Trigger

 I was inspired by Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger colors for this card. I love the yellows and the apricot colors in the inspiration room.
 And I used the Sketch Challenge from Unity's May/June monthly challenge, and I used my new All Smiles stamp.  I used watercolor paper, and an aqua pen to apply the ink. My first try, I smeared the black ink. So I painted first, then dried, then stamped the image.
