Wrapped Romance~

'Wrapped Romance' is a beautiful 18 inch necklace made with 'wrapped' wire stones, accented with a more teal colored turquoise wooden dyed beads, black lava beads, twisted metal, and antique silver spacer beads placed throughout. 

 This necklace fits choker style, and can dress up any pair of jeans and boots, or even be worn with that little black dress!  It's gorgeous!

Beaded Eyeglasses/Sunglasses Holders~

 These are custom made by length and color my bead loving customers request. The most common length asked for is 26 inches, however these were all made at 32, she likes them that length! I sell the 26 inch holders at $15 each, and for each additional 2 inches added, add on $2.50. You can email me at tbturner2007@yahoo.com for additional info. Thank you!

~We Bought A Zoo~

If you haven't seen the movie, "We Bought A Zoo", WHAT are you waiting for???   This is one of the most amazing, heart warming stories I have seen in a LONG time!  And that it's based on a real family's wild adventure, makes it that much more awe-inspiring.  Take your children, (even if they're grown) and take a BOX if kleenex, it'll come in handy! 

My favorite line in this movie..."All you need is 20 seconds of insane courage"...Go see the movie, you will relate to that quote with your own life, and it will have NOTHING to do with a zoo.  :)

HOPE: The emotional state, the opposite of which is despair, which promotes the belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one's life. 

Every piece of jewelry I create has something special about it, some reason, some situation, or is a reminder of something.  I have put together some beautiful pieces of jewelry for breast cancer patients and survivors and nothing has given me quite the feeling of joy that I got just knowing that somebody cared enough for these women to have something very special and specific made for them! 

One piece of jewelry in particular stands out for me.  A very good friend of mine has a friend that has been battling cancer for a little while now.  She was scheduled to go into surgery, and I was asked to make a piece of jewelry for her.  I was told she loved zebra print and pink, and to just go with that and come up with something.  I decided on a cross pendant, and found one that was zebra print!  I added the pink beads, and it turned out beautiful.  Even more beautiful is the story that followed. Unbeknownst to my friend, this woman had told her husband the night before that she wished she had some beads to hold onto before her surgery...something I suppose that she could do with her hands to ease her nerves.

 I truly believe that God had a hand in that!  It was a sign to her that she would make it through the surgery just fine...but it was a sign to me too.  God was sending me the message that THIS is the plan he has had intended for me in my life, but I had to travel the roads to get here.  I have been looking for myself for awhile now...I think I found ME.  We ALL need a little HOPE now and then...

If you have someone special that needs a little "Hope" created for them, please let me know!  I would love to create a piece of jewelry that lets them know they are loved, thought of, prayed for.  Something that gives them HOPE! 



Getting Ideas On Craft Rooms~

I am gathering ideas on my next project.  I really like the organization of this room!  I would love to get pictures and ideas from other women on your crafting rooms!  You can post them here, or email them to me at tbturner2007@yahoo.com.  Thanks!  Have a great evening!


~Lillie's Onyx~

Lillie's Onyx is a beautiful 19 1/2 inch necklace made with a stunning cut and wire wrapped black onyx pendant.  The beading consists of black lava beads, antique silver spacers, and rock beads that are a shade of deep pink with black speckles thrown into the mix for a striking combination.  This necklace also comes with matching earrings on sterling silver earwires.~

 One of the most popular pieces I create~Confetti Crosses.  These crosses come in different colors and also can be done with metal if you prefer a total silver look.  The metal crosses are a bit smaller, but just as beautiful.  No two confetti crosses will ever end up the same, that adds to their unique style!  Can be worn on wire chokers, ribbons, or cording.

'Pink Cactus'

'Pink Cactus' is a beautiful 18 inch necklace with lava beads, pink crackle beads, and twisted metal.  The pendant is beautifully detailed, and the black clasp adds to the unique style of this piece!  This piece also flirts with a little western flair, and could dress up denim and boots, for a night out.  I have also made a pair of twisted metal earrings, with black earwires to go with this set.  www.etsy.com/shop/LiveLaughBeadShop This piece should show up in my Etsy store this evening!  Happy Shopping! 

Arm Charms~

 These pieces will be added to my FB online store and my Etsy store, LiveLaughBeadStore later today.
 This picture does NOT do this bracelet the justice it deserves!  It is a gorgeous combination of grey, blue, and a little bit of pink thrown into the mix.  I finished it off with a sterling silver hammered hook and eye clasp. 

 I am learning that everything doesn't have to be so "uniform" to make a beautiful piece of jewelry.  With a little imagination and a variety of beads, you can create something unique and stunning! 
Color splash!  This piece is SO pretty on!
