YUP!! I'm doing it - I am having my first jewelry party at my house on Thursday April 30 - flyers will be going out in my neighborhood. I want to test the waters and get some interest generated. Terrie and Amee are still going to have an open house in their back yard but not until the end of May...

As I mentioned in my email that I sent to everyone, Melinda suggested mommy/daughter matching sets so I have made up some of my illusion styles in different sizes so that moms and daughters can share the beauty on mother's day. I will have two or three on display at the party and then take orders ... hope it works.

Anyway - here are a few more of my favorite necklaces (only one illusion style in the batch because I really need a good light box to get decent pictures of them - so those pictures will come later)

I really didn't care for this one when I made it but it has grown on me. For the right personality it would be a fun necklace - and only $8 online - 15% off that at my party.

This set is much more expensive because of the time involved in making the bracelet. The necklace and earrings would go for $15 but its another $15 for the bracelet ...
This is an interesting necklace with gorgeous polished rock pieces dangling from the necklace itself.

This is a one of a kind necklace - $14 for necklace and earrings - that is a cut shell pendant
I call this one Wild and Wacky - again - the right personality would love it and the big and clunky is really in style right now
The beads on this one are gorgeous - it is long and has a beautiful polished rock pendant setting of the whole necklace with matching earrings.
This one is made entirely of wooden beads and if I can ever find more of the wooden chain I will make matching earrings for it too!
This is the most beautiful necklace I have made so far - when you see the necklace up close the shell is striated tones of brown and cream. I am really proud of this one
I guess I had more illusion necklaces in this post than I thought. This is my crystal and pearl set and it is gorgeous - it is really dressy - the set sells for $19 because of the number of crystals it has in it.

It has been a lot of fun creating these necklaces and ideas just keep coming to me. I wake up in the middle of the night thinking "OH! I could do that with those beads!!" When I sit down to create a necklace I never know how it is going to turn out....but there are very few that I haven't been happy with the finished product.

I would love to have any of you that live close by come to my open house on Thursday - it should be fun!!
