It always amazes me how fast a year can truly go by. The same can be said for 2018 which here we are here in December with the New Year only weeks away again. I know a ton of us are getting ready for 2019 in our planners and etc. Ready to set goals and even a new word for the year. Hence why I'm bring back my Goal/Word of the Year printable. Completely the same as last years except it says 2019. It really kept me on track with my goals for the year and kept the word I choose for the year in the forefront.

The holiday shopping season is here and if you're like me and just now starting to buy gifts for your love ones then you'll need a gift list to keep everyone and everything in check.

Behind the Design: Gypsy Necklace Set

Custom Jewelry ProjectsPosted by Gaetana Tuesday, November 13 2018 12:12PM
If you know me then you'll know that I relish doing custom order and fix it pieces. I think it's the challenge I like of meshing my creativity with a customer's idea. These pieces were a fix it piece and I had complete creative freedom. Her only request was a necklace and earrings which we discussed the earrings in detail on my assistance. So based on the earring design we came up with beforehand is how I came up with the necklace design and the second pair of earrings.

So let's start with the earrings and brain child behind this entire design.
I first pulled out my needed supplies which consisted of my jewelry pliers, gold tone head pins, jump rings and ear wires.
I then beaded on the beads to create the combination I discussed with the customer beforehand. Attached the two sections together and wallah. They're done.
From there based on the earrings it's time to work on the necklace.
I first knew that I had to include not only the bigger chunkier beads but the natural beads and spacers that she gave me. So I decided to start the necklace off with the dark brown beads then a gold bead then a half bead space and so one. All of this I strung on thick gauge wire added a crimp bead to add jump ring. Now onto the rest of the necklace combination.
I then beaded on the chunkier beads with a gold bead between each bead until I reached the middle of the necklace.Since I was going to have a odd number of the chunkier beads left over I decided to put those in the middle and continue the combination until I reached the end point.
Another look at how the bead combination went. Very colorful yet neutral at the same time.
I then added a crimp bead and a jump ring. Then a clasp to complete the necklace.I then had enough beads left over to create another pair of earrings but this a more neutral pair. I was so much into my work that I didn't stop to take any photos of the process but here is the finish result. The customer was happily surprised with these second pair of earrings.Here are both the pair of earrings side by side. So much apart of the necklace. Featuring two different section of the necklace that make it whole.

I don't know what I was expecting when creating these pieces but I know for one thing they came beyond better than I imagined.

November Journaling Cards

PlanningPosted by Gaetana Tuesday, October 30 2018 06:45AM
It's amazing to me how fast this year went by and we're already days away from November and Scorpio season is here. Happy birthday to all my fellow Scorpios.
For this month's journaling cards I was completely stumped on what do as the decorative one since I already did leaves and pumpkin motifs. Then it hit me to use a piece of one our new dolls. This doll is wearing her uggs and if you live in the northeast then you already know the uggs have already started being worn in October. But are seen and worn more in November since the temps always happen to take a nose dive. Like always we have our signature journaling card and like always I used my scalloped edge scissors to give it a decorative edge. So enough chit chat and onto the download.

Scorpio is known to be one of the most emotional signs of the zodiac. Long before Pluto was discovered to be the ruling planet of Scorpio. Mars was the ruling planet of Scorpio. Since Jasper is the planetary stone of Mars, the semi-precious stone can also be the stone for Scorpio. It's a variety of chalcedony and occurs in many colors including red, yellow, green, and black. Jasper is believed to stabilize emotions and bring joy.
