Gothic Cross Choker Necklace - Transformation

This piece is a true vampire of a necklace! Just wait till you see it in person! All of the crystals on this cross appear black in a dark room or at night, but turn it in the right light or wear it out in the sun and the middle crystal transforms before your eyes into a stunning purple!!
The stunning pewter cross hangs from a hand braided satin cord, with a silverplate lobster claw and extension chain, even a little Swarovski surprise at the end of the chain!!
The cross itself measures just shy of 2 inches (4.5cm) long and wide. The necklace itself is 15.5 inches (34.88cm) and extends to 18.5 inches (41.63cm), but I will happily make it longer or shorter for you if you like!
You can find this little lovely in my shop -

This necklace is part of my LAYERS COLLECTION. Layered necklaces make a fabulous gift idea for the women in your life (or even as a gift for yourself), as they can be worn seperately or with one or two others, giving the wearer a variety of looks!!

This is a simple, yet stunning necklace which features an absolutely gorgeous faceted LEMON TOPAZ drop briollette. This hangs from a delicate sterling silver chain and a silverplate lobster claw and extension chain (from which hangs a tiny matching Swarovski crystal).

This necklace measures 16 inches (36cm) and extends up to 19 inches (42.75cm), but I will happily make it longer or shorter for you if you would like. :0)

Another Treasury Tuesday

Today's treasury is a hands-down, easy pick for me! Fall is my very favorite season. I love everything about it, from the colors, to the chill in the air, to the smells. I even love how it starts getting dark earlier, since I'm such a night person!

This treasury is called "Burnt Orange" and it was created by SuzyQQuilts , who's shop is full of quilted yummies, including quilts, wall hangings and even totes and reusable sandwich bags! You should check her out sometime!!

What's In A Picture Wednesday

I was going to do another "What's New In My Shop Wednesday", but it's mostly more spiders and I don't want to bore everyone. (Nothing worse than a big yawn!) So, I decided to share something that's different, but still along the spidery lines.

I took these picture a couple of nights ago out in our yard. Yep, that's right, I took it!! This girl is a Garden Spider and she is HUGE, but I think she's absolutely fascinating to look at and pretty darn stunnung!

Mindless Monday

I hate Mondays. It means the start of another week of playing Mom Taxi and getting up early. Even when I worked in an office job, I refused to work on Mondays. Going there was bad enough, but I couldn't even fathom having to do it on a Monday.

So.... I thought I would start the week off with a random (but very cool) picture that I found on Flickr. What are these things? So cool!!!

My booth got butterflied!!!

We do First Fridays Art Walk the first Friday of every month, May through September. It's a nice little festival atmosphere with a great group of awesome artists (many of them from Etsy as well). This time, at the last moment, daughter and I came up with a fabulous idea for decorating the booth for a little pizazz.

We ended up spending hours punching out hundreds of little butterfiles out of scrapbook paper and both of us ended up with aching hands. But I think the result was so pretty!!! What do you think?

Oh, and hubby and daughter got to enjoy a nice carriage ride as well! They had so much fun!!!

The Countess - My newest favorite necklace

Okay, first, I have to say I am in LOVE with this necklace!!! It's pretty simple, but it's sooooooo me! I love, love, love the brass filigree stamping that I purchased and customized a bit, I love the way I ended up hanging the briolettes, as they just didn't look right with a normal old wrap. I love the way it looks on too! Good thing I have supplies to make more of these, as I have claimed this one as mine, and I've made another one for my shop.

It's all brass, with faceted grey glass drops and little black Swarovski in the chain to match. Thanks for looking!!

Confessions of an Etsy Addict

Jenifer stands up and turns to face the crowd in front of her. "Hello. My name is Jenifer and I am an Etsy addict."

It's true. It's a fact I tried to deny for so long now, but my family has seen it for a while and I have finally come to terms and have opened my eyes to the truth.

It all started so innocently. I dabbled with a shop like so many people, just to try and see what it was like. Then I started to get a sale or two. Man, that feeling was just incredible. I thought that I could be good with that feeling every now and then, but then the sales started coming in more frequently. I quickly discovered that the more sales I got, the more sales I wanted. It was never enough! Watching those number of sales go up just gets my heart pumping and I just want to shout "WOOOHOOOO!!", and I often do!

I use to only renew once or twice a day, but my renewing habit has quickly grown to 10 to 13 times a day, and I have to "check" my shop at least 1 or 2 times in between each of those renewals.

I stay up till ALL hours of the night just to catch an elusive treasury!

When I was at an art show the other day, I spent half of my time dying to check my shop and to renew something. I've even convinced my husband that I'll eventually have to buy a Blackberry so that I can maintain my habit even while I'm out.

Every time Etsy is down for maintenance, I watch those same silly videos for HOURS, then I go to Twitter and tweet about Etsy being down and I go to the SJA forum and post about how much it sucks!

I live Etsy, I sleep Etsy, I daydream Etsy, I talk Etsy. I truly am 100% completely and utterly addicted to Etsy.

My poor family. I feel bad that they should have to live with this addiction. Guess I'll have to go browsing on Etsy to find them all some fabulous handmade make-up gifts! lolol!

Enjoy our lives, fellow Etsy addicts! I know I sure do!!!

A Night At The Opera - the Earrings

What do you picture when you think about going to the opera? No, no, no. I don't mean being bored and falling asleep. lol! When I think about going to the opera, I think about getting dressed up in the fanciest dress I can find, getting my hair done into an upsweep at the salon, and finding some glamorous, stunningly gorgeous jewelry to make the whole look really pop.

These earrings are definately that type of jewelry. The brass filigree looks drop dead gorgeous with the peridot Swarovski crystals and with every little movement you make, you get a new bit of sparkle.

Not only could you pair this up with a fancy dress, though, you could wear these earrings to dress up just about any outfit, even jeans and a t-shirt!

These earrings are 2.25 inches (5.06cm) long from the top of the oxidized sterling silver ear wires and are 1 inch (2.25cm) wide at the widest point.

These earrings are available for sale here -

A Trip To Nantucket - Victorian Style Blue Chalcedony and Sterling Silver Necklace

Elizabeth was nervous and she could feel it. She and James had been to Martha's Vineyard together a couple of times already. They had even pulled off quite a ruse both times. There was a religious gathering in Oak Bluffs in the summertime, one that they both enjoyed attending and had made some good friends while there. However, it was a tight community. The tent plots and new houses sprouting in their places were literally only a few feet apart from each other, and, being a religious community, an unmarried couple rooming together was heavily frowned upon. So in order to pass unnoticed, they pretended to be married, though neither of them were in any hurry to be wed. She could do this without batting an eye, yet this time was different.

This time was different indeed. This time they not only would be spending time on the Vineyard, but they would also be "island hopping" and catching the steam ferry over to Nantucket, for the expressed reason of spending time at the estate belonging to James' family. In fact, his parents would even be summering there.

This summer would require a performance unlike any that had come before. The parents would not be so easy to pacify as the folks in Oak Bluffs. They would be scrutinizing her like a bug under a microscope. And though she had the attire of a fine lady, and had the act down pretty well, there was no fully hiding the person she was inside, the one with the questionable upbringing.

There was a knock on the door. The carriage driver had arrived to pick her up. Like it or not, the time had come. She took a deep breath, adjusted her necklace and fastened the last buckle on her steam trunk. It was going to be a long summer indeed. **************************************************

The Trip to Nantucket necklace will impress even the most critical of parents with it's elegance and beauty and anybody else for that matter. It is so dramatic and stunning, yet simple and classicall at once. It is composed of big, gorgeous blue chalcedony beads, which are framed by the most incredible looking "big leaf" silver plated bead caps. All of this hangs from a delicate sterling silver chain, sterling silver lobster clasp and a sterling silver extension chain, all of which has been heavily oxidized for a dramatic look and the beauty of age. There is also a pretty little blue Swarovski crystal at the end of the extension chain.

This neckalce is 18 inches (40.50cm) long and extends to 21 inches (47.25cm).

This necklace is available for sale here -

This stunning piece features gorgeous amethyst colored fire polished glass beads, which are all flanked by delicate filigree bead caps.

In the Presence Of Royalty - the Bracelet and the Earrings

There are some things in life that just make a person feel so regal, just like royalty. This bracelet will definately be one of those possessions.

These are an absolutely gorgeous piece of wearable art. The baroque style earrings and bracelet are entirely handcrafted from scratch. They are made from beautiful faceted Rhodocrosite beads, which look quite purplish next to the sterling silver, which I heavily oxidized to give it depth and the beauty of age. The sterling silver links are wire wrapped, but I've also soldered them under those wraps for extra strength. The earrings hang from silver plated chains, which in turn hang from oxidized sterling silver ear wires.The earrings are 2.75 inches (6.19cm) long from the top of the ear wire and are 1 inch (2.25cm) wide at the widest point. The bracelet is 7.5 inches (16.88cm) long and 1 inch (2.25cm) wide.

If you are interested in the 2 pieces as a set, please send me a convo - I'd be happy to work with you on a discounted price for the set!!Your earrings will come in a free gift box tied with a pretty satin bow.

You can find the two for sale here - and here -
