Something Beautiful Studio is my outlet for creativity. It will be as unique as the one who wears the jewelry creations. I am currently focusing on sterling silver hand-stamped jewelry while still offering a few beaded creations. The diversity of stamping is that I can virtually create any number of pieces using phrases, words, names, dates, or portions of Scriptures which will be wearable art.
|These are my newest experiment. They're called image transfer. You basically cut out a design (that there are two of) in paper that you like, use a special product to attach it to these aluminum discs (very light weight) and then after the product dries, you soak them in water and rub off the paper. It SOUNDS a lot easier than it actually was. These are a gift for a friend and will be the only time I make image transfer pieces. :)|
|These earrings are for my mom who LOVES earrings to be intentionally asymmetrical. She's a quilter and does many things using fabric (fiber arts is the technical term I believe). So, I knew she'd LOVE the black & white polka dot fabric beads as well as the pink batik fabric beads. She picked out the abalone beads while we were at a bead shop in Black Mountain, NC when I was home this summer, and they'll go with just about anything as well. They were fun to make and I know that sometimes a few new pair of earrings makes her happy. :)|
