I am absolutely in love with these In Bloom Rings!!!! They bring a touch of romantic victorian into the modern day. I now wear mine every day, and spend half of the day staring at it!!! This particular ring has a beautiful vintage style RED WINE lucite chrysanthemum as a focal, which sits atop a stunning brass filigree shank. The whole look is absolutely devine!



These handmade silver and black seed bead fringe earrings have 14mm silver lined clear seed beads on the fringe. The earrings are 2 1/2 in long(6.35cm) and with the surgical steel ear wire 3 1/4 in. (8.6cm) long. They are also hypo allergenic. They would look great with a little balck dress.



This handwoven, multi shade purple agate slice necklace is on an 18"(46cm) double spiral seed bead chain that closes with a peyote toggle clasp embellished with 2 purple firepolished crystals. It's made from silver lined clear, silver lined purple size 11 Japanese seed beads and silver lined clear and silver lined lavendar size 15 seed beads. The agate slice is approx. 2"(5cm) long.The longest fringe is approx. 1 1/2 inches(3.5cm) long. This necklace is one of a kind.



This stunning piece of wearable art is a perfect addition to any man's wardrobe. It is masculine enough to be worn by the most manly of men, but it could just as easily be worn beautifully by a woman. This cuff bracelet is entirely hand crafted from scratch. I start out with copper sheet, which I cut shape and file smooth. I then transfer and hand engrave the gorgeous celtic knotwork design. The entire piece is then heavily oxidized to give it a dark titanium look and then the piece is engraved again to bring out the copper. The entire process takes about 2 hours!

I absolutely adore & appreciate the amount of work that goes into working with seed beads! And Jenifer's HAND engraved cuffs are simply amazing! Gotta love those bloom rings too. :)

I like Dancing Wind Designs bead earrings, they look like real fun to wear. You don't believe I would give Family Jewels's cuff to my man? I would keep it for myself.*g

I've been eyeing that cuff since I first saw it. My boyfriend doesn't need it as much as I do ;-)

I'm in awe of anyone that can create beautiful designs out of seed beads - Dancing Wind creations are just stunning. Family Jewels has the best range of mens and womens designs, I love the mens cuffs and the floral inspired jewelery.

What a nice contrast to group these 2 talented artists together.
Those engraved cuffs by Jenifer are such a find. I love her tattoo style designs. Dancing Wind Designs seed beaded and fringed creations are amazing.
