Check out my new collection of mask Lanyards! Each glass seed bead is individually strung and then individually crocheted. Great way to break from mask wearing without misplacing your mask. Unique way to wear a new piece of jewelry. Many more colors to come. If you would like a custom color or diameter, please contact me. Also listed on my Etsy site at
Still looking for that fabulous gift? Lets's face it, not much time left. How about a beautiful pair of tassel earrings ? Have you seen the Oscar de la Renta tassel earrings at $395?
So my version is slightly daintier and thinner, and much more affordable at $145. Hand crafted by me and made with Miyuki Delica seed beads, Swarovski crystals and pearls, and sterling or gold filled posts. The length is 4 inches but can be made from 3 to 6 inches and in an assortment of colors.
And, I forgot to mention, light as a feather!
Custom orders can still be made on time for Christmas, until December the 16th.
It's been a month since I've been home from Italy, and I'm inspired to create new designs and collections. After such a wonderful vacation , getting back into the swing of things has been harder than I thought. Life in Italy has a fantastic flow that sparks my creativity... So I'm sharing some more shots of my trip and reliving the magic...
Vernazza Cinque Terre was such a quaint and beautiful little town!
The look from above on our hike to Corniglia
Our very sweet B&B with steps and more steps!
The incredibly long tunnel to Riomaggiore and the fabulous mosaic wall!
More to come! Check out my new designs!
So, I have been home for 4 days and Italy is still swirling around in my blood.
So in this post I will share with you some of the most beautiful and interesting moments in Venice
A traffic jam in the canal...
And then it was time to say Arrivederci to Venezia!
Stay tuned for more pics from Bella Italia,

Italian Vacation Posted on 8 Jun 14:54 , 6 comments
Only 5 days left before our fabulous trip to Italia! We all know nothing compares to the food, but there is nothing quite like the fashion and beauty seen everywhere in Italy. This is not the first trip for me, but it is for my husband so it will be fun seeing it again through his eyes.
We will be flying into Milan and driving to Venice with a stop in Vicenza, hoping to pick up some ideas for jewelry, then onto the beautiful canals of Venice...
Two days there and then onto Cinque Terre for two days , with a stop in the Ferrari Museum. Somewhere my husband has always wanted to visit. Then Vernazza...
On our way to Florence, a must stop in Pisa and Lucca
Then onto Florence and some of the most beautiful works of art in the world including Michelangelo’s David.
Then off to my first lake experience in Italy, On a large hill in Passignano Sul Trasimeno overlooking Lago Trasimeno...
On our way to Rome we are going by way of Assisi, one of the most peaceful places I have ever been in my life!
Then onto the last stop but for me the most exciting, Rome! Five days should be enough to see the beauty we will remember for a lifetime. We have scheduled a private tour of Vatican city and we are so looking forward to that. Our apartment is right off the Campo de Fiori so no driving and the wine will be flowing...
I will be gone from June 13th until June 28th.
La Dolce Vita!!
It seems I can never have enough beads. It's as if nothing can quench my thirst for more new and colorful tiny glass beads.
You never know when you will need thousands of bronze and gold beads...
After speaking with a friend of mine, who is a fabulous professional fashion photographer, I need to have a Bridal Collection ready for our photo shoot in late June. It will be golder than I thought. But from what I hear, gold is making a comeback. Fortunately, I will be leaving for Italy on the 13th of June for 2 weeks of heaven and hope to get a fresh idea of jewelry designs coming our way.Vincenza is our 1st stop and it is the jewelry hot spot in Italy. Inspiration and more...
Hello and hope you are having a great day! I am excited to tell you about my April 24th weekend event happening at the Valley Forge Military Academy Alumni Association Reunion! I will be having a huge trunk show and hopefully meet a bunch of new clients. I love talking about what I do and then showing how it is actually done. So that will be a busy but fun experience.
Stop by and check out these designs ahead of time!
Hey everybody! happy that you could make it over to my new shop. It's been a little difficult to get up and running as I would rather be beading!!
