New listing - Evil Eye Pendant necklace - Sold

Evil Eye - Pendant Necklace
I had such a wonderful time wandering the streets of Kusadasi in the older fort now bazzar.  The shopping was incredable, my sister bought a handmade lace table cloth that she had been looking for and I bought several Evil Eye beads of various shapes and sizes.  The first of these beads to be made into jewelry is the 1-1/2" diameter evil eye pendant bead that now resides in a lovely St. Petersberg stitch necklace.  The necklace is made with Czech blue, aqua and opague white seed beads and accented with blue glass bicones.  I would love to go back to Turkey one day and spend more time.  Since we were on the cruise ship we only were in Kusadasi for 7 hours, and 4 of those we spent wandering around the ruins of Ephesus.

This necklace sold on July 17, 2010 at the Abbotsford Farmers Market

Formal Nights Hemetite Choker

Since coming back from my month long trip through Europe I have been trying to finish off several pieces, photograph and post to my etsy shop Angelque Creations.  One of these is Formal Nights adjustable choker/princess necklace.  I made this necklace adjustable so that one would have several options to wear it out to a formal evening with you little black dress, or wear it longer with your business suit during the day.  The necklace is made with a right angle weave (RAW) and is 1" in width and adjust from 16" to 19" in length.  The button clasp I used two recycled coat buttons that have a chrome finish.  When you first put on the necklace the coolness of the Hemeitite stone is refreshing but quickly warms up to body temperature.
Well I finally have the time after my whorl wind trip in Europe to get back to posting on my blog and making new items for my Etsy shop.  I had such a great time traveling to London, Paris, Rome, Naples, Athens, Rhodes, Turkey, Eygpt, and Venice.  We were moving everyday seeing new sights and taking too many pictures that I now have to edit.  I also starting working at Redwoods Golf course and that has taken up some of my time.  I am happy to be back at beading and here is the first of my efforts inspired by my trip.  I call it the Eye of Horus (Ra) bracelet and it is made with Japanese Delica seed beads from a pattern that I created.  The pattern will also be available on my Etsy shop Angelque Creations.
