Here, as I mentioned in the last post, are some of the new designs we have been working on.

One last grouping of western designs to share. I used a few pieces of Lipstick Ranch to create three rustic designs. The two necklaces are both on leather cord from Julie's which she buys from Leather Cord, USA. Very nice quality, terrific prices. I used some raku nuggets on the peace sign necklace along with some large hole crystals, and Unicorne Beads teardrops. This necklace sold to a lovely young gal. She helps her mom with their doll clothes business, Giddy Up Girls and we traded the necklace for doll clothes for my niece. I love trading art for art! The earrings use smaller L.R. crosses with some turquoise and carnelian rondelles. The flower power necklace has a large beaded bead (from Auntie's Beads) and miscellaneous other crystals in that gorgeous crimson color. However, we discovered that this necklace is too short for the sliding knot design I used since it won't go over your head! Duh, I didn't even try it out! So I will be fixing that this week, and the necklace and cross earrings will be for sale at the High School Rodeo in Hastings, starting on Wednesday. The final picture shows a cluster of the new cowboy hat pendant Chris made for the Expo show and those will also be for sale in Hastings. Julie reserved a booth and we will have our jewelry and things there with other jewelry, quilting items, and Southwestern design gifts. Stay tuned this week for more of our new jewelry designs!
