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.

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.
