Crafting and My First Giveaway!!!

I have been super super busy the last few weeks. Dana has been working 70 hour weeks, so I’ve had little time to get back into blogging.

If you read my last post, you know that I’m in a mint and coral phase. I just love that color combo!!!! I ordered some beads so I could make my own mint and coral jewelry and along the way I found these really fun rings.

Chevron Rings

Are they not the cutest?!?! It is actually two rings that I stacked together to get the chevron look. Czech glass rhinestones and chevron pattern in one, I couldn’t pass them up!

I haven’t quite found the perfect “coral” bead. All the beads I’ve come across is a little too peachy for my taste. I would prefer my coral to be a little more pink than peach. But so far my favorite out of all the peachy coral beads is the Swarovski “pink coral” pearl beads. My favorite mint is definitely the Swarovski faceted “alabaster mint” beads. Here are a few things I’ve been working on in the last few weeks:

Pink & Mint NecklaceNecklace for Monk

The necklace on the left I made for myself, it’s made with vintage Japanese acrylic “mint” beads paired up with a pink ruffled flower cabochon. The necklace on the right I made for my little Monk, she chose the green ruffled flower cabochon, so I paired it with two vintage Czech alabaster milk glass beads.

Swarovski Pink Coral BraceletVintage Acrylic Mint Bracelet

These two bracelets are in my Etsy shop. The bracelet on the left is made up of Swarovski “pink coral” pearl beads with a white ruffled flower cabochon as the centerpiece. The bracelet on the right is made up of vintage Japanese acrylic pearl beads with an ivory ruffled flower cabochon as the centerpiece. If you want to pick these up you can find them here.

Turquoise and Lavender

You can also find this necklace in my shop. It’s made up of vintage Czech alabaster milk glass graduating beads. The largest of the beads starts underneath the lavender flower cabochon and gets smaller as it makes its way up the chain. Two lavender and one turquoise flower cabochon commands the attention on this piece.

Turquoise and LavenderTurquoise Ring

This necklace comes with a matching turquoise ring set on an adjustable filigree base.

I mentioned I’m in a mint and coral phase, so of course I had to make some mint and coral stuff for myself!

Mint & Coral

Okay, so I KNOW I’m way late to the mint & coral party. Like, everybody has gone home late. But you know what they say, “Better late than never!”

I came across a photo the other day of a collection of jewelry in the mint and coral color story and I just fell in LOVE! Like, head over heels in love! Like, love at first sight in love! Like, I cannot live without you in love! Sooooo! I ordered a strand of vintage mint pearly glass beads and a strand of pink coral beads to add to my jewelry making box. I can’t wait until I get them so I can make my own mint & coral things.

For now, here is a collection of my favorite coral and minty things to lust after. Enjoy!
