Art Bead Scene Ornament Blog Hop

Heather Powers, of the Art Bead Scene, is hosting an ornament blog hop! Not only that, but if you check out the Art Bead Scene, there will be a giveaway as well!

I had a lot of fun making my ornaments! I used some vintage chandelier prisms that my mom had bought years ago. They are in really great shape!
I used my own baroque style beads, as well. And to complete the ornament, I made some of these pretty ornament hangers - you can find the tutorial here.
I made some more ornaments with my beads, using the clear chandelier prisms and think they look fantastic too!
You can purchase your own baroque ornament beads in my SueBeads etsy store - and with each purchase, I am including an ornament hanger that I made, free!

So hop on over to the rest of the participants to see what pretty things they made:

Lovely. I really like the baroque shape. Very unusual!
I LOVE the ornaments...especially the first one! Will look so pretty on a tree, with the light on the tree shining through!
Gorgeous! Candy colored icicles! What a great idea. I have a couple of clear chandelier crystals kicking around here someplace. I'm going to have to dig them out!

Art Elements Theme of the Month - January - Use Your Stash

Usually I'm so much better about the January Use Your Stash Challenge (hosted by Lindsay Starr this time), but this year, time is just not my friend. Between the holidays, going away on vacation, and getting back to work and trying to make new beads, there's just not a lot left in me at the end of the day.  But I did manage to get this pair of earrings made using Inviciti heart charms, some new metal spacer beads I just got, and some titanium hematite beads picked up at a Bead Fest here and there! I really like them, mostly because they are simple and hearts are my thing!  Check out what everyone else made! Thanks for stopping by!

Art Elements Theme Challenge - August - Swirls

This month Marsha Neal chose swirls as the theme of the month! I'm enjoying the challenges as themes.

Here are the swirl themed polymer items I made for this month! This first one reminds me of a fiddlehead fern, all closed up. I painted it with alcohol inks. This next one is the before of the ammonite hearts I did. Two of my favorite things, ammonites and hearts! Colored with alcohol inks.  I made two, the colors turned out very different! More spirals in the form of polymer clay ammonite cabochons. I really love mixing the paints to color these! Plus you get a gratuitous flower shot!  More ammonites colored with ranger patina inks and alcohol inks in that order.  My fave, I think - I love the colors! Alcohol inks. This next one was made with acrylic paint and I tried crackle on it, d
