Here are two items I made for the Art Auction coming up May 1st. I have a couple more items I am making so be on the lookout for those and there is supposed to be a sneak peek at some of the other auction items coming soon. I'll post a photo here so you can see. This first image is an asymmetrical  necklace that was calling me to make it. As soon as I saw the focal piece I knew what I wanted to do with it. I almost want to keep this for myself. : ) There is mother of pearl, white and bluish purple fresh water pearls, copper beads, copper and brass chain links and a sweet little cross.
This bracelet feels like summer to me. I used some green and glass leaf and flower beads mixed with silver flowers and leaves. I really like how it turned out. It also is asymmetrical.
I was off today and I am off tomorrow too. It felt so good to sleep in. The last couple of weeks have been so busy. Do you ever wish you could just say, today I am going on vacation and I'll be back in a week or so. But no we have to plan ahead and request the time off and la ti da. Oh well...such is life.


  1. These are both beautiful pieces Tammy! Have a great week and upcoming weekend.


  2. It’s always a pleasure seeing what you are up to. Both pieces are awesome. Love especially your bracelet. Brilliant!

    Have a lovely day!
    Hugs, Gaby

  3. Beautiful, beautiful pieces- I can't wait for the auction to start!

  4. I wish all the time that I could just take off for vacation whenever I feel like it :)
    Love both of your pieces, the bracelet does look very summery

  5. Pretty, pretty pieces Tammy!

    Glad you enjoyed your lie-in! I'm off work for 4 days now - woo hoo! - but still couldn't manage to sleep past 7.30 a.m. lol!

    It would be lovely to be able to take some unplanned "duvet days"! Some jobs do that, not mine sadly!

  6. Oh Tammy! I can't blame you for wanting to keep that necklace, it's divine! And you made a second are amazing!!!

  7. Hi Tammy, it is nice to see you creating. Your jewelry is lovely. I had plans for a Mother's Day breakfast this morning and a Spring Bazaar this afternoon but I have this thing about weekend obligations. Yesterday was a pajama day and I decided to extend that to today too. When I am running around so much, even if it is for social things, it doesn't feel like I've had much of a weekend. We woke to dust today so it is a perfect day to stay home. Wishing you a super Saturday. Tammy

  8. so beautiful Tammy!! i esp love the necklace! they would no doubt do well at the auction :)
