    Jewelry mad

    In preparation for the upcoming doll show I cam going to ... I have gone quickie jewelry mad.

    I have professionally made and taught beaded jewelry making for a decade in a prior life, so this is like getting back on the bicycle. While it has been momentary fun, I think beading in such a small scale of precision I will leave to the experts!

    Your jewelry is very pretty, Dina. I especially like the one on the left of the screen. Is it black & gold?

    Jewelry mad

    They are very pretty beads, and I can see you have a great eye for color. They go very well with the mannequins. My technical skill with small jewelry is pretty good, but sometimes I think my color theory could use some work.

    Thanks

    Jill the one on the far left is dark metallic pearlized green .. that makes the color very multidimensional and I have used several types of beads throughout so combined they flicker the richness about.

    allurose, your detail is exquisite, I dont even want to attempt that!! But yes color is my thing which you can see on my beaded jewelry on Etsy, I cant help but play and mash with color .. to the point of gawdy sometimes lol

    Thanks Galacticat, Im happy with how it is coming along and Im having fun .. but its only as good as having customers .. we will see. After the show I'll pop the jewelry on Etsy I guess, I really want to get back to the sculpted chairs.

    I have been looking at sculpted chairs on line, Dina. Have you some finished ones I could see--just to see what your are working toward.

    I think the octopus chair is intriguing but my newest girl will be very light, airy, and innocent. Am thinking more in the line of unicorns & such.

    Oh how wonderful!!
    And my sweet Isabeau would love a winged cat chair! Her winged ginger cat is her mode of transportation on her home world.
