Bronze Baby


Okay sorry for the title I was listening to Lady Gaga :-)
Anyway, on to why I am here today.
Nina Designs
I was sent a care package of bronze charms, ear wires, jump rings and chain to have a play with from Nina Designs. http://www.ninadesigns.com/
I received 2 Tiny Key Charm in Bronze:Tiny Lotus Petal Charm in Bronze:, 2 3 Circle Link in Bronze, a 18" Brass Cable Chain w/ Bronze Finish, 2 Tiny Feather Charm in Bronze,a Coral Branch Pendant in Bronze Hook Earring Findings in Bronze  and 10  Brass Open Jump Rings with Bronze Finish.

First, I need to let you know this was at no charge to me and anything I say is my own opinions.

I LOVED these charms. I thought they were 14k gold but they are better because they have more durability than gold and are way more affordable. They are super cute, perfect in small pieces like earrings or as a dangle off a necklace or bracelet. I love that their jump rings are closed so you don't have to worry about your customer pulling them loose. I love how durable they are. I tried to bend them and could not, my daughter stole them off the beading table and hoarded them for a week or two and they were perfect when I finally found them in her toy microwave :-)

Now on to what I made. Oh this is the best part!

Beads by Starry Road Studio and Pink Beach


Loving the feather dangle
















In this necklace I used the chain. I loved that it already had the clasp and was ready to slid on one of my etched copper discs and a chalcedony drop.
This chalcedony drop make me happy

Remember this necklace from my Finally Friday post here? Well I used the key as a dangle in the back of the necklace. I thought that would be perfect as a tag for someone whose logo is a key.



This tiny key is so cute.



Love these. they are so simple and cute.


I love the drops, they are so shiny.

 Here I used the circles. I had a hard time with these but in the end I really like how they turned out. A ton of sparkle with Swarovski crystals and my own silver ball headpins.

I also used the ear wires in these earrings



Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my designs. I really enjoyed working with these pieces from Nina Designs. http://www.ninadesigns.com/
