Pink Bangle and Earring Set for Wynona

I was thinking deeply last night on a new project but my head seems to be blank and I have an order due on Sept 17, 2009.

So I decided to make a bangle bracelet (JCB-02) but this time the swarovski crystals are arranged on a diagonal stripes. I then made also a pair of earrings with (JCE-03) style to match with the bangle. I did slight changes on the earring style by replacing 4 gold spacers into crystals.

The bangle and earring were done, now my problem is how I gonna present it. I searched my big boxes at home for my jewelry box stocks (which I forgot where they were inserted after my transfer from ZC) and chose a pink one to match the set. I wasn’t able to buy pink ribbons so I salvaged some from old chokers too.

So that’s it a Birthday Present ordered by my former colleague intended for her best friend Wynona.

Been busy a while

I became very busy these days since I’m back to an 8am-5pm office based working hours so I wasn’t able to spend more time doing handcrafts. I guess tonight I need to visit my bead and crystal boxes, since my former colleague ordered a jewelry set for her best friend’s birthday that would be due on September 17, 2009.

I hope by tomorrow I’ll be able to post the finished product. Ciao!

Back Issue Bead Magazines

Whenever I passed by at BOOKSALE I see to it I get a chance to peek on their available magazines whether latest released or back issues. Mostly I get a hold on back issue magazines because they are cheaper. I specially select mags about beads, crafts and photography, sometimes I consider buying also entrepreneur and family related mags.

Last weekend while having our window shopping at SM CDO, my husband and I happened to passed by at Booksale, I never hesitated to search through their magazine stands and luckily I found this 2 back issue magazines about beads. The May 2009 issue of BeadStyle and a Special issue of BeadStyle Magazines cost me P 149.00 and P 119.00 respectively, a very budget saving for me.

At home I excitedly opened the sealed magazines and started flipping back and forth the pages and appreciating every picture, every idea published.

Swarovski Crystal Colors

My collections are handcrafted using Swarovski crystals, 14k gold-filled and sterling silver. I specially made use of the mention materials because my creations are marketed by my sister-in-law to her co-teachers in one of the local public high school in ZC. Crystals are the "in" fashion statement now a days.

The luster the crystal jewelries emit conveys elegance not only for special occasions but also an everyday fashion statement.
