Links and Lovelies

The other day while at Beadfx taking a class from Marcia DeCoster, I was admiring these items of jewellery:

Firstly, these "Victoria" earring that Marcia made - aren't they beautiful? You can read one of her blog posts on the subject here: and find links to earlier posts on the topic of these earrings as well. I was excited to hear she is considering posting instructions on CraftEdu (, as I'd love to try making a pair!

She was also wearing (for part of the day, as she was changing the pieces she wore frequently!), this gorgeous ring featuring a Kristina Logan lampwork bead ( I am amazed at the number of colours of glass in this bead, it just boggles my mind. I also really like the setting of the ring itself. I seriously coveted this ring but couldn't figure out a way to sneak it into my purse without Marcia noticing.

Last but certainly not least, check out this fabulous necklace that Malliga made and was wearing that day while she worked in the store. I asked her if I could take a picture so I could copy it and she said yes. :) Both she and the necklace are beautiful. If this necklace isn't already an Inspiration item on the Beadfx website (and I must admit, I have not yet checked but you can, here:, it certainly should be, don't you think?!
