Dear Filigree Team Member, I said a heartfelt prayer for you today, For God to protect you on life's way. I asked Him to fill you with joy and peace, and love in abundance that will never cease, May He refresh and encourage you hour after hour, May your soul feel nourished and your Etsy business flourish! May new customers continue to flow and your Paypal accountant be filled with dough! I prayed that my words would make you smile and that we'll all be featured in the next issue of "Style." Now go to my new blog and leave a comment and give your opinion about my content!


A name please?

I just created this necklace, and I usually come up with a name, or should I say, that a name usually comes to me. How about it? Any suggestions?


Blue Finery - Brass Filigree Wrapped Glass Necklace

Here is another design for the "FRESH INSPIRATION", March challenge.

This is a unique brass and glass necklace with a strong feeling from the past. I love playing with different shapes and colors so this necklace was a joy to create! It has been completed with a repousse clasp.


The Muse

Here's my "FRESH INSPIRATION" piece for the March Challenge. I must say, alot of planning went into this piece. I've had these polymer clay beads around since last year sometime, finally putting them into a jewelry piece!

These interesting polymer clay beads were made by "Random Star" (shop on Etsy). Very pretty, springtime colors! I really like the mint green color of the beads.

I used the waterlily toggle, a couple of different beads caps to accent the beads, and couple of different chains for texture. Mint green freshwater pearls, and a rather large green adventurine donut with the Ornate Wreath filigree to finish the pendant. Enjoy my inspiration!


My boyfriend (Nightmare!) and I let each other pick out an item off Etsy for Valentine's day and this is what we got!

Anti-Valentine necklace & Nocturne Victorian Black Tattoo Ring

We are SOOO happy with our gifts to each other lol. Also she included a little promo pack for the Dark Side - beautiful business cards, an awesome magnet, soap from AgonysDecay (which smells AMAZING) and lip gloss from MrsEvils (which I'm so bummed she doesn't actually sell - it's the best thing I've ever put on my lips!).

We sent her a message the day we purchased explaining that they were Valentine's gifts to ourselves. Bellalili was quick to respond and let me know the tracking info the day everything was shipped. Our items were purchased on 2/14 and received it on 2/23. I think the post office screwed up though because I checked the tracking and it was 'stuck' at a town an hour away for 3 days!! The items arrived safe and secure thanks to the excellent packaging. The tins she uses to ship the items in are ADORABLE! We will definitely be using them to store craft items/beads in.

The necklace and ring were not only very, very reasonably priced they are BEAUTIFUL, even better than the pictures,especially the ring. There are so many details to it that were not captured perfectly by the photos! I definitely plan on visiting her shop again!

What a great order/package!! Thanks so much BellaLili!


I have been very busy lately!! My family has wondered where I am!! What have I been doing? making jewelry of course!! Oh, I am so in love with Vintaj brass, it makes me happy:)) I really love the creative hoops, and I think the pastel colors are perfect for Spring, what do you think???
