Handmade Candy and Cupcake Charm Bracelet

Sweet Tooth Candy Charm Bracelet with Cupcake Lampwork Beads
Fun and cute... and perfect for someone with a sweet tooth! This handmade charm bracelet was inspired by pink dyed coral beads that look like candy. The coral beads were used as spacers between sparkling clusters of crystals and glass beads.

Completing the piece, a handful of cute little lampwork glass cupcake charms with vanilla frosting and little pink rosettes were added. These cupcakes are handmade from lampwork glass and an adorable addition to the sweet tooth theme.

This handmade cupcake bracelet was then finished off with a toggle clasp in matching silver tones that looks like twists of licorice!

Porcelain Beaded Sunflower Necklace in Bronze

Sunflower Necklace Beaded in Porcelain Cameo and Bronze
Spring is coming and summer isn't' far behind... at least we all hope that's the case! With thoughts of a warm spring and the beginnings of summer rolling around in my head as inspiration, this handmade sunflower necklace has been created in anticipation of that soon-to-be-arriving season.

The pendant at the end of this artisan necklace is a beautiful porcelain cabochon that has been set within a frame of leafy bronze fronds. The pendant is 70 mm in size and dangles at the end of a length of hand-created chain with bits of bronze beads, yellow pearls and matching porcelain beads with sunflowers on their surface.
