Winning Heart Earrings

These lovely earrings are made from polymer clay. This set of heart I recieved in a package of winning beads from Cindy Lietz. If you look back in some of my older post you will be able to see them along with some of her fabulous work. She wanted to see what I have done with them. So, Here you go Cindy. I had them on Monday and recieved tons of Complements. One of my favs now :)

Natural Stones

My Sister purchased these from a vender in Ky., and asked if I would wrap them for her. I still have a couple more to wrap before shipping them out. They are very beautiful stones in person esp. with the crackle effect that goes through them.

16 In. Collar Necklace

This is my second collar that I have made. The first one was made with copper wire and I believe used four wires wide. This one is five strands wide and a heavier wire. Almost to difficult to make.
 This one is 16 inchs round. I really love the look of Jewelers Brass.  It could pass as gold filled.

Speak of gold, I thought I would mention that 14 K & 18 K Gold Collars sell for $200. and up.  
I would sell this one for $75.00 if anyone is interested.

Worried about tarnishing? All base metals tarnish even silver so you might want to keep a polishing cloth around.

Paua Te Koha a Tangaroa The Gift of the God of the Sea

Paua is unique to New Zealand. The most colourful species of Abalone.
Regarded by New Zealanders past and present as a taonga or treasure. Maori legend has it that paua was a special gift from Tangaroa, the God of The Sea. It is unique to New Zealand, that lives on the rocky shoreline all around the coast, but grows best in the waters of southern NZ. This marine mollusk eats seaweed and lives clinging to rocks at depths of 1-10 meters, normally along the shoreline. Paua Shell is the most colorful of all the abalone shells. Most other abalone are pale in comparison.
