Crafty Podcast

Blogged under Crafty Videos, Jewelry Designing, Sew Simple, crochet and knitting by Tammy on Thursday 11 August 2016 at 2:01 pm

My sister, the Tappingflamingo, was down visiting me in Florida, so of course, that means we had to sneak off and record a podcast. We chat about my so far failed attempt at sewing Blythe doll clothes, her very cool gator jewelry, and show off some knitting and crochet.



Beads, Sewing, and Crafting Organizing!

Blogged under Crafty Videos, Jewelry Designing, Sew Simple by Tammy on Monday 25 July 2016 at 8:42 am

After chatting some about how I was getting my jewelry making supplies, sewing, and other crafting supplies in order so that I could actually make something, I finally got it together. In this video, I show a before and then an after, from crazy mess to neat as a pin (or almost).

Do you make jewelry? If you said “yes,” then you need to wear it!

I have been giving away jewelry to random strangers and friends too, of course. I talk about what I’ve started called “Random Acts of Jewelry” in this short video:

Charms and Charming Jewelry Designing

Blogged under Jewelry Designing by Tammy on Wednesday 6 April 2016 at 12:26 pm

I have been going in about 20 different directions lately when it comes to making jewelry. One minute, I think that I need to update my Etsy shop and focus on that. Then a book idea pops into my head. Then I think I should focus on my Jewelry Making Studio web site.

Recently, I kind of threw all that out the window for at least a little while and just sat down and designed. And it felt so good! I focused on some cute charms I’ve acquired, and that is where my design inspirations started.

Some of the jewelry supplies I used came from one of my Bead Bargain Boxes, and some came from stash. One piece I made for a gift. It uses a cute “luck” charm and green beads.



I also made this necklace using faceted blue beads and a cute French charm.



My summer break is on the horizon. Hopefully, I will have a better jewelry focus when it comes!

Bead Bargain Box March 2016

Here’s another unboxing video of some amazing beads and other jewelry making supplies I received in my March 2016 shipment from Bargain Beads.


Pendants with Rainbow Fused Glass

Blogged under Jewelry Designing, etsy by Tammy on Thursday 18 February 2016 at 7:43 am

I made these fused glass pendants using three layers of glass, clear, rainbow, and clear. Then I drilled holes and added wire bales to a few of them. You could also glue on metal bales or create one using seed beads. They have a wonderful glow about them and would look great with your choice of beads or simply added to a silver chain.

They are part of the slashed de-stash and charity fund raiser going on in my Etsy shop right now.
