Basic Bead Wire Wrapping Tutorial

Sev­eral of you have asked me to do a tuto­r­ial show­ing you how to wire wrap a bead. I tried to make this as sim­ple to fol­low as pos­si­ble by tak­ing a photo at every step. I hope this tuto­r­ial helps you out and doesn’t con­fuse you even more. At first you will feel like you are fum­bling your way through it as I know I cer­tainly did but once you do it over and over again you will be wire wrap­ping beads with­out giv­ing it a sec­ond thought. Tools Needed: Round Nose Pli­ers, Chain Nose Pli­ers, Side Cut­ter Pliers Sup­plies: Beads,...

Making Customized Jewelry is Fun & Easy

Tak­ing an item you have cre­ated and cus­tomiz­ing it is some­thing fun and easy and means the world to friends and fam­ily when given as a gift. This dou­ble heart pen­dant could have been left plain with just the wire wrapped fresh­wa­ter pearl but adding a metal stamped word pops it up a notch. You too can cus­tomize all your gifts by metal stamp­ing. All you need are these basic metal stamp­ing tools and sup­plies. Brass Ham­mer, Stamp­ing Block, Stamp Straight Tape, Stamp­ing Blanks, Jump Rings and Let­ter Stamps. The list of items you...

A Look at What’s New

While Bel­lie was busy paint­ing or watch­ing movies I was busy cre­at­ing new one of a kind jew­elry designs for my Etsy shop. As you can see, this week I was able to add sev­eral pieces. I must admit my favorite this week is the owl pen­dant. These new pen­dants will look gor­geous with any Autumn attire. Yes, I’m wish­ing this Texas sum­mer away, although I must admit it has been one of the coolest in 7 years. You’ll find some new resin charms too. These charms have vin­tage embossed papers or tin encased in resin with wire wrapped...

DART Rail & The Dallas World Aquarium

Tues­day, Ans­ley and I rode the DART rail into Dal­las to take Bel­lie to visit the Dal­las World Aquar­ium. The ride into Dal­las was made super fun because we sat in our seat so that we were going back­wards. When your 7 that’s awesome. Once we arrived it was absolute amaze­ment. I’m a firm believer that if you really want to enjoy some­thing like this com­pletely take a child. Their won­der and excite­ment is priceless. We got to the sloth exhibit at the per­fect time as it was climb­ing up and down the trees ever so slowly. This is my...

Bellie’s Here For A Visit

This past Sat­ur­day, Isabella (a.k.a. Bel­lie) my 7 year old niece came for her week of every­day fun. We have had a blast doing one paint project after the next. This girl LOVES to PAINT! She wants to paint over going to see a movie, get­ting a makeover at Sweet & Sassy, eat­ing break­fast at IHOP etc. I sug­gest some­thing fun to do for the day and all she says is can I just paint. So paint is what we have done all week. I asked her Sun­day what she wanted to paint and she said a horse. At first I pan­icked because this aun­tie does...

Handmade Gifts are Best

I truly believe a hand­made gift is one of the best gifts one can receive. I know I love to receive any­thing hand­made. The thought that some­one took the time to make some­thing spe­cial just for me, means more than I can describe. If you are just start­ing out in hand stamp­ing jew­elry charms or are think­ing about start­ing this charm is some­thing you can cre­ate fast and easily. One tip I have for begin­ners is to start out with Impres­sArt Soft Strike Metal Stamp­ing Blanks. These are amaz­ing!!! The stamp­ing blank used in my...

Dress Necklaces

These dress neck­laces accented with wire wrapped vin­tage beads are the lat­est designs added to my col­lec­tion of hand­made vin­tage boho chic jew­elry. I think what I love most about my jew­elry line is no two pieces will ever be dupli­cated. They are all one of a kind pieces and I LOVE it. I am always look­ing for items that are unique to wear and this line is perfect. FYI… If you see a heart, dress, cross or rec­tan­gle neck­lace in one pat­tern but wish it was in another pat­tern, please feel free to con­tact me as I might be able to...
