Etsy Shop Update! Swirl pod glass headpins, winged evil eye heart, and oriental poppy mixed-media ring!

Hello friends!

I was excited to get back to some of the ideas I had from the bead soup bead inspirations with today's post. 

Remember these?

Here's what I made...
Swirl Pods "Sod and Sea"- Ok so I was really thinking about calling them "Grass and Sky, " but whatever. Anyways, they are super chubbly poddy and awesome in lime and aqua on 22 gauge black steel wire :D 

Swirl Pods- "Fire" - Yep the stereo typical orange and yellow "fire" colors on 22 gauge black steel wire. Aren't they pretty in the sunshine? :D
Swirl Pods "Hypnosis"- ok so these were the hardest to make. Why? Well the white is VERY soft and the cane black and clear are as well. It took me more pods than 5 to get a similar size set ;) 

Now these pods will go swimmingly with this next focal! So I took my "Rainbow Ruffle Ribbon Heart" design and added an evil eye instead of a raked heart on the front.
Here are the "Rainbow Ruffle Ribbon Hearts".

Then add a black base and get "After Dark Ribbon Hearts".

Then add an eye and you get....."Ruffle Ribbon Eye Hearts"!
Ruffle Ribbon Eye Heart "Escape"- I have wanted to make this style heart for a LONG time. I just never got around to it until the other day. I had wanted to do some with more color, but black and white was on my table, so there you have it ;) The center is actually a light transparent gray with a black swirl and the ruffle ribbon wings are black, gray and white ;)
"Sunset Poppy"- Here she is in all her glory! I used this side shot so you can see the band as well as the bloom. It really is one of the most incredible rings I have made! I LOVE it!
So you can see what it looks like worn.... Wow, huh?!

 Well I should be going. I have a few errands to run so off I go!

Have a great weekend and see you soon!
