Nancy's Ocean

Antiqued copper chain necklace, tons of silver, gold and copper sea and ocean creature charms and some really interesting shaped pearls.  I am not sure if this is the finished product yet, but I am close.  Maybe a few more beads with colors and we will see where we stand!

Copy Cat

I have had this Victorian copper pin forever and I have tried to put it together in a wearable fashion a handful of times. Recently, a friend posted a picture on Facebook of a steam punk choker...and I saw the pins future. I sawed off the pin back and smoothed out the raw edges, drilled a tiny hole at the bottom for a dangle, added the rings (a perfect earring find turned necklace adornment) and simply added the thick gross grain ribbon. My favorite part of this necklace is not only how well all of this came together, but the simplicity and elegance of the the ribbon tied closure.

Another triumph in completed projects, this necklace and earring set boasts focal points direct from the far East!  The coins were drilled to be placed on simple earrings and I added the semi-precious round garnet to match the red of the necklace.  But the necklace, in all it's simplicity is dainty and still makes a big "sound".  The tiny bell pendant actually rings with each movement.  I merely added ceramic discs and cut rhondeles to catch the light!  Food for thought, if you travel often, pick up a few simple items to remember each location and make them into jewelry...I would be glad to help you with the design!

Timing Is Everything

After some good-natured harrasement by Miss Danielle, I have finally gotten back into jewelry mode.  It seems that life doesn't always allow us the time to do EVERYTHING we want to do.  I am realizing that more and more, but I am also finding that I need to be diligent about MAKING the time to do what I love.  REmake Jewelry!

This new piece is a "charm necklace" created from multiple pairs and lone earrings of a friend.  There were only a handful of earrings that didn't make it to the necklace (second picture is of the multiple pairs that went into the necklace).  Most people choose very similar styles and colors of earrings which makes putting multiple types of earrings together no problem at all.  I hopy you enjoy Becky B.

Not that I haven't been thinking about making's just that I have not been really motivated nor have I had the time to really sit and create.  However, I have been holding on to this adorable maple syrup bottle that we ate about a month ago with our pancakes and I just knew it had another life to live.  Add a little flower bud, dried flower or fake flower and attach it to your will catch the sun in its tiny cut glass beads!

Joyous Saturday

The Spring Bazaar at the Richland Area Community Center was amazing!  A big thanks to Lorie M. from Scentsy for making it all come together and to everyone who made it out on a rainy spring day. 

Making new connections and meeting amazing women who have that special entrepreneurial spirit really boosts my mood.  I am looking forward to seeing some who stopped by my table again to sit down and look through their old and broken costume jewelry!  We will "ReMary" it together!

I honestly never thought there would be a day when I could say that I had "inventory"!  Well, today is the day...I have inventory and I am getting ready for this Saturday's SPRING BAZAAR in Richland.  I am looking forward to talking about what I do with all of that "junk" and broken jewelry and sharing some of the items I have already made!

Creative juices flowing...I made this necklace from odds and ends, broken necklaces, earrings, clip earrings and misc. chain! I am having a hard time focusing on "my day job" with all of this inspiration floating around in my head!

WANTED: Inspiration!

I am seriously trying to mix things up and get myself inspired as the days get longer and spring is around the corner. Suede and two chunky necklace clasps make up this bracelet and the handmade copper findings and clasp add interest!

The Peach Pendant

This was simply a broken hair clip with a beautiful plastic coral colored setting. It is sterling silver and has tiny marcasite on the top filigree. It has a small chip on the top of the coral setting, so I covered it with antiqued gemstones...Perfect for spring!

Chain Gang

A glimpse at a couple of new/recycled bracelets using copper wire for handmade clasp hooks and jump rings...Love the mix of metal!

It really isn't that much of a surprise, but I finished this set for Nancy today.  It is out of order of priority on what needs to be accomplished on my work bench, but I just love these stones and wanted to work with them.  Green Goldstone! Asymmetrically cut stones, this picture doesn't do them justice.  There are tiny specks of gold sparkle inside each stone and the green is so intense, like Emerald City Green.  We bought enough of these stones to make the necklace, earrings and a bracelet!

March Madness!!!

I am excited to begin the process of working on new items for a Vendor Show in March 2012!  The show will be held at the Richland Area Community Center and will feature home based businesses, crafters and artists.  It will be a great opportunity to meet new people and hopefully introduce ReMarydOriginals Jewelry to a whole new group of people.  Watch for details on the event in March!

Andrea's Jewelry Repairs

Dearest Friends,
I am not a trained artist, but sometimes I sure feel like one.  I seem to procrastinate over the projects that are simple and pretty straight forward.  Somehow that seems like an artist thing to do.  Either way, I have put this project aside a couple of times, but have finally completed it.  Feeling unhappy with how long it took me to complete, I am still sharing the final product.  Three repairs: change the clasp on the green fabric necklace to magnetic; restring blue glass square necklace add crystals; and use three cut amethyst stones in something other than earrings.  I made a bracelet with other amethyst chips, Swavorski crystals and silver spacers.  Plus I made a second bracelet to accent with oblong natural amethyst stones.  I hope that this will make up for the long wait to get her jewelry back.
