Picture Jasper – day 199

Posted on Aug 29, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

Picture jasper is one of my favorite stones to work with because they are real stones and yet inexpensive.  It looks like a mini painting all done by mother nature.  JTV’s jewel school has a few selections and they are on sale.  You can find them here. During my last visit to JTV, Christiane (she is one of the talented jewel school team) made this beautiful pendant!


Can you believe this is chainmaille framing the pendant?  I never thought of using chainmaille this way, I always crochet around a cabochon but this is pretty!


Jewel School offers kits and tutorials on chainmaille, so go ahead check out their free videos.  Lauren, the Chaimaille Lady will show you how.


I am glad to be a part of your journey in finding your creative side.

Fun and Functional – day 198

Posted on Aug 24, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 6 comments

I have made quite a few watches and this one is my favorite.  I ended up keeping it for myself because it fits me perfectly, love the colors and I got tons of compliments:)  This is very easy to make, and I meant it!


I think the hardest part is finding the right watch face, let me know if I can be of help, I got connections 🙂


I wear this everyday!  I know that when the battery runs out I can just replace it myself and if something happens to the band, it can easily be replaced with new beads.
