Lily of the Valley Brass Botanical Bracelet with Chinese Turquoise Beads -Vintage Inspired

Darling bracelet for anytime of the year........treat yourself to something special you deserve it!.....made brass lily of the valley decorative metal piece, Chinese round Turquoise and roundel undefined (Mystery) beads, some kind of stone, not sure what....but they are really pretty and look nice with the Chinese Turquoise beads. 
I used gold headpins to make the chain on this so it's a mix of brass and gold which really makes it pop with a vintage look. A lobster claw in brass is attched and the bracelet is made to fit size 7 1/4" to 7 1/2", but will go into the last loop at 8". A tiny Czech golden yellow flower is attached on the front of the brass Lily of the Valley metal piece. 

Sweet Botanical Bracelet - with Vintage Inspiration and the bracelet is very lightweight and easy to wear. 

Fantastic gift idea! the bracelet comes in a drawstring bag.

Wild Heart Crystal Suncatchers

Swarovski Crystal has a beautiful new heart the Wild Hearts, they are really pretty and come in a lot of different colors but I like the big ones.  


I bought a few to try out, the Crystal AB and the Wild Heart Red Magma 37mm size. I made several suncatchers with them.


This is a new heart from Swarovski-wild heart features an elongated shape and asymmetric faceting. The nostalgic faceting offers a nostalgic mood and modern twist to vintage look. Hearts are the symbol of eternal love. These make gorgeous window or car crystal suncatchers.



This is pretty beautiful, I love the shape of these hearts...........This is a wild heart red magma   rainbow suncatcher.

Here is a Crystal AB Wild Heart Suncatcher below.

What great gifts for the holidays!

Dolphin and Seahorse Lampwork & Crystal Suncatchers

It was a really windy and rainy day today in Northern California, so I am thinking.....about the sea. I made several new suncatchers, Dolphin and Seahorse Suncatchers.

I will post a few photos of them and then you can click on this link to see them all. Each one is different from the next they are uniquely made.

This is one of the dolphin ones.....to see more go to this link.

To see the other seahorse styles go to this link. 

I have three seahorse suncatchers and four dolphin suncatchers. They are made with Glass Beads, Swarovski Crystal Beads, Czech Beads or Cat's Eye Beads Grade A. But like I said each one is different so each one  has different types of beads. The one at the top, the dolphin has cute shell beads and Cat's Eye Beads with Swarovski Crystals and other beads. The Seahorse shown here above is made with a mix of Lampwork and Glass Beads and Swarovski Crystals.

You can check out all my suncatchers at Krystalkats.com

Happy Happy Beading! Christmas Lucite Flower Earrings & Salvation Bracelets

Well it's been such a busy month working on the house and reading lots of magazines. Suddenly I have been interested in renewing a craft that I put on the back burner for awhile crochet. So even though it's like riding a bike you never forget how to do it, I just have a bit of difficulty following some patterns, but that is because I am trying to make difficult things!
I did make another crocheted Beaded necklace for Christmas but I have not added beads to it yet.
I have been doing some Christmas beading and I also remade the Salvation Bracelet style that I had into a new cuter style made with Swarovski Crystals, Cat's Eye Beads, Pearls and Black Onyx. I think it turned out really pretty. What do you think?
I really like this style much better then the old one I had up online so I took the old one down and replaced it with this one. I also re-made the little girls gems Salvation Bracelet to match this adult size. So mother and daughter Salvation Bracelets.
Here is the link to both the adult size and child size bracelets.    

So here are some Christmas earrings and one fall earring or anytime of the year earring actually. I just love the brown with the cute pinkish tone bead, that turned out so cute! I love all the Christmas Lucite Lily Earrings I made too. 
These are not posted to my website yet but they should make it to my site within the next few days. 
Cute brown Lily Lucite earrings in copper with pinkish brown bead.

Here are some cute Christmas Daisy Earrings or anytime of the year. Look the beadcaps on the top look like snowflakes. 

Red Lucite Flowers with Green and Silver beads.

Green Lucite Flowers with darling red beads and at the bottom another red flower......so cute!

Some pretty blue Lucite Daisy earrings for anytime of the year.

Lovely Lavender Lady Bracelet and Earrings & Crochet Flower Cloche & Sugar Skull Purse

What has Kat been crafting up now! gorgeous Lovely Lavender Lady Bracelet and Earrings made with Czech Glass Beads, Lucite Flowers and Swarovski Crystals!

Lavender Lady Bracelet and Earrings Set 



The earrings are made with Lucite daisy's and gold beadcaps and shell designed leverbacks with Czech beads in milky lavender and crystal violet.

This set is sold! but I will be making more soon so stay tuned. If you're interested in this set for yourself, well something similar actually because no two are exactly alike please contact me.

I have been a busy bee, stitching on my sewing machine and crocheting as well. First I made this cute Alexander Henry Handbag using Mini Calaveras fabric in black, I attached a Pearl Green Lucite Flower Rose to the flap. So cute!


And just before I made the handbag I made this adorable Crochet Flower Cloche. I am in love with it. It's made with two strands of green yarn adorned with sequence. The flower is made with both green and purple sequence adorned yarn. It's especially warm and looks very old fashioned for sure.

I found this adorable cloche design at Crochet Today's Magazine. 

Please find me and my pretties at www.krystalkats.com or 

It's fall and time to start thinking about the upcoming holidays!
