I just got a great convo this afternoon that my Lemon Chrysophase and Butter Bean Jasper Necklace set was in the Mermaid's Song Treasury on Etsy.  I love this necklace set and was honored that someone else did too.  At least enough to put it in their treasury.  Here's the Necklace set: Lemon Chrysophase and here's the Treasury it's in: Mermaid's Song.  Please Click on the pictures and comment.  Thanks.

Pink Breast Cancer Charm. Cell Phone charm, Zipper pull

I had a very good friend, the girl who had cut my hair for about 20 years, die last year from Breast Cancer.  There was no history of it in her family.  She was only about 40 with 2 teenage children.  And she died within 5 months of them finding the Breast Cancer.  It spread quickly into her lungs and the rest of her body.  We've all had someone we've known either fight or beat Breast Cancer.  I'd been thinking about doing this for a while, and finally got it done.  My newest listing is a Pink Breast Cancer charm/Cell phone charm or Zipper pull.  It's in my shop, KayzKreationz, under Beaded Bookmarks.  I did it for Simona. 
I also make Stained Glass, Mosiacs and Fused Glass Kreationz for your Home and Garden.  Check them out.

I Won!-Sit and Spin Riveted Pendant class from Beaducation

Woohoo! I won the Beaducation giveaway.  I'm getting set to take my online class for the "Sit and Spin Riveted Pendant"  It looks like it will be so much fun.  They've got lots of great classes.  They even have some free classes for beginners and those interested in getting into another aspect with their jewelry making.  So check out Beaducation.
 I've always thought riveting, soldering and welding metal would be interesting so this class should be so much fun.  Although, as my family knows, torches and I don't really get along.  I forget there's fire there. LOL  But we'll see if I can get through the class without any major mishaps.  When I get my pendant finished I'll post it here so everyone can see it and tell me what they think. 
In the meantime, if you're looking for some great Glass Kreationz for your Home or Garden check out my shops at Etsy: KayzKreationz or Artfire: KayzKreationz or Zibbet: KayzKreationz.

Beaducation and Giveaway

In perusing through the different blogs I follow, I found this post from Andrew Thornton about a great giveaway for a "Sit and Spin Riveted Pendant" class.  It's offered by a website called Beaducation.  So I checked out the site and the different classes.  It is fantastic.  They have all sorts of classes you can take online.  Very inexpensive.  They show you all the materials/tools you'll need for the classes.  Plus any pre-requisites you might need for that class.  In some cases, they even show you a small teaser video of the class.  They even have some free classes you can take.  I've got several I'm going back to take over the next few weeks/months.  So check out Beaducation and also Andrew's giveaway on his blog.  You'll love them both.
I'm wanting to take a couple of these classes to not only make more jewelry, but also to add some unique components to my Stained Glass, Mosiac and Fused Glass Kreationz.  If you need some Glass to add to your home or garden check out my shops on Etsy and Artfire, both named KayzKreationz.  I'm sure you'll find something you can't live without or I even will do custom orders.  Enjoy.

Transform Socks into Wrist Warmers

I'm very cold natured.  And I love gloves, leg warmers, etc.  So when I saw this post by Little Treasures to make socks into Wrist Warmers, I had to check it out.  I LOVE this idea.  My hands and arms are always cold.  Plus sometimes you just can't wear gloves and get done what you need to.  These are adorable and so easy to make.  Plus they look very feminine.  I can't wait to try it out and make several pairs for me and as gifts for friends and family.  You'll love it too.  Be sure to check out the original post on Little Treasures blog.  She's got some other great ideas:
  When I saw these beige - gray speckled socks I knew I had to have them. They are kids' size but that was exactly what I needed for this project.  This is a simple tutorial how to transform socks into wrist-warmers.

You need a pair of socks.  Cut off the toes part.  Turn the sock with the heel part upwards.  Gather the part where the heel is, pin it and hand stitch it.


Add a decorative button. Add some lace or ribbon.  This is important.  You have to insert a tailor's ham inside before you stitch the lace.  If you don't have a tailor's ham insert another pair of socks or a small pillow.  Something that will expand the sock. Then (hand) stitch the lace.  Your new, fabulous wrist warmers. These also make a nice last minute gift and you can make them in less than 15 minutes.

Don't you just love these?
