Brazz Matazz

Brazz Matazz is the name I have given to my newest creation.  This necklace earring combo was created from a selection of items I received from as part of their blogging for beads promotion.  The objective was to create a vintage or vintage inspired piece.  I selected some lovely antiqued brass items for this creation.  The items can be found in the base metal and collections & Brands sections of the site.

I paired the pendant and other brass items with some pretty glass beads and some anti-tarnish brass craft wire that I had coiled to create beads as well as some pretty brown cat's eye beads.

I also created a pair of earrings using the coiled wire and antiqued brass findings. 

I actually wore this piece to work the other day and received many complements.  I also had a coworker ask me not to list it as they wanted to purchase it.  So, if you like this one and would like to see one similar for sale in my shop please let me know as this one has been sold. 

Once again it was a pleasure working with  The opportunity to work with them to create projects like this is amazing.  If you are ever in need of jewelry or crafting supplies be sure to check them out.

As always I have received no payment for this post.  All comments are my opinion only and should be read as such.

Winter Inspired

I have been meaning to get this posted for a while now, but haven't been able to take pictures until today.  The winter weather has really wreaked havoc on my plans lately.  At any rate, I received a blogging for beads package from a while back it contained this lovely sterling silver snowflake pendant and this snowflake toggle clasp

I paired these wonderful items with silver glass pearls and oval quartz beads.  You can find all kinds of inspirational pendants and clasps at
I have received no monetary payment for this post.  The beads were free of charge and the opinions in this post are my own.
