Key Charms




I think I really like the Ranger patinas - I have some beads and charms that won't take enamel, or take it very well, that I was going to destash but have been experimenting with the patinas instead! I love how they make these keys look like relics! You can find them in the SueBeads store! I'll have some in rust as well!

Interesting patinas. Are they applied with heat? I just finished torching up some old chain but would love to see how that color would go on them.

I love the colors of these patinas. Do you have to seal them to protect the finish?

New Enamel Beads Listed

I just listed a bunch of enameled beads in the SueBeads etsy store. I'm going to be taking a week off. I'm going to leave the shop open, so if you purchase anything from the 10th - 18th of July, they will mail on the 19th! Thanks so much for your patience!

The Tacky Earring Blog Hop

Diana Ptaszynski had a great idea, instead of a Tacky Christmas Sweater blog hop, a Tacky Holiday Earring blog hop! I was on it.  I had ideas right away.  I had so many I had to control myself.  You can buy these for $15 each, too!  Here we go!

I found these awesome wreaths in the miniature Christmas section in Michaels, and they go perfectly with silver and copper colored plastic beads!


These trees were found in Michaels, on an end-cap - I assume they are scrapbook or card making supplies, but make fantastic earrings.  The holes were a little small and far down, so I had to make LARGE loops.  Paired these with cute little gold colored jingle bells!

And, finally, the ones I had in my head the moment she announced the blog hop.  Dr. Seuss sparkly puff balls with ribbons.  The only thing that would have made these better for me is if I could have found the red ribbons I really wanted to pair these with - don't get me wrong, the silver is cool and all, but in my head they were red.
