Countdown to Christmas Day 3 – EXTENDED


countdowntochristmas-logo3Welcome to Countdown to Christmas Day 3, and boy what a day it is!  Today we have one of my favorite products, and a big seller at the St. Brendan’s event – Hand Enameled Victorian Rings.

These rings are hand-painted with a variety of paints and enamels, and heat-treated to create their three-dimensional look.  Simply embellished with a trio of genuine Swarovski crystals, you can select from an embossed or distressed look, sure to turn heads.


Have a Merry Christmas!



Countdown to Christmas DAY 2!!


It’s Day 2 of Countdown to Christmas and today’s featured product is:

The Chiyogami 75 Product Line!  Yes – the ENTIRE product line.  Any pendant or earrings made with this beautiful green floral paper.  The entire product line is 50% off until tomorrow, and comes with your color choice of an organza ribbon necklace and organza gift bag.


The matching earrings are normally $15, but are $7.50 for the duration of the sale!


Merry Christmas!


Countdown to Christmas!

countdowntochristmas-logoEach day, starting December 14, 2016 and going through December 24, 2016, I will be running a Countdown to Christmas on Facebook.  Keep your eyes on the Tangles, Twists and Treasures Facebook Page, as each day I will be featuring a different product at a different discount.  Products will change at around 5pm (today being the exception for those coming from the TTT blog page (see below for details.))

If you’re interested in a product, you MUST PM me through Facebook before the deal expires in order to be added to the list.  I will then contact you with information regarding the deal.  Most products are unique within their range, and I will have other color options available.  This means that there may only be ONE of the featured item in that specific style, so if more than one person claims the deal, I’ll be discussing remaining color and style options with you.

I hope you love my little sale, as much as I love making things for all of you.  Without further ado, here’s yesterday’s sale item.  Since it’s a little late, it will be available until 11am tomorrow for those who mention coming from the Tangles webpage.  Today’s deal will be posted on-time for all, and there will be an overlap of the two deals FOR WEBPAGE CUSTOMERS ONLY.


Watch Out for Fairies! – The final blog hop and line reveal for the Build a Line Master Challenge Class 2016!

Watch Out for Fairies!

It’s here – it’s finally here – line reveals from everyone on the blog hop!  I can hardly contain my excitement!

Without further adieu I give you – “Watch Out for Fairies”!!  I’m so excited to share this whimsical line of necklaces, brooches, watches and earrings with you!  For this class, we were only required to make five concept pieces, but I can see myself adding to this series with other pieces as well as offering several of the current pieces in color and crystal combinations for each month’s birthstone.  Furthermore, the design process took a circuitous route which gave me ideas for four other lines: “Fashion Fairies”, “Watch Fobs”, “Blooming Barrettes”, and “Floral Fantasy”.  Meanwhile, my sister wants me to omit the fairies and do a line of just watches, and my Mom cracked a joke that may just turn into a fantasy-themed Halloween line, which could be called “Hanging Around”.  Guess you’ll just have to keep coming back to see what happens next!

First, let me introduce you to “Pocket Fairy” (Necklace)!

PocketFairy_Close PocketFairy_FullPocketFairy_Neck

This endearing fairy is a mixed media, deconstructed pocket watch.  Done in painted raw brass and silver plate, she’s adorned with Swarovski crystals and pearls, and topped with a copper patina bell flower hat.  She’s finished with a fire-polished rose crystal necklace, and a lobster claw clasp.

Our next piece is Silver Leaf Fairy (Brooch)!

SilverLeaf_Wide SilverLeaf_Close

This wonderful fairy has a heart for nature, and a love of shiny things.  She’s done entirely in silver plate, right down to her bell flower hat, and accented with cobalt Swarovski crystal beads.  Her watch is hung low enough to make it easy to lift and examine, but not so low as to interfere with movement.

Another new addition to the family is Garden Fairy (Necklace)!

GardenFairy_Full GardenFairy_Close GardenFairy_Left GardenFairy_Right1

This fairy has fiery nature, and loves flowers!  She’s passionate, but soft and feminine as well.  She’s done in mixed metals of raw and painted brass, silver plate, and bronze plate.  Her wings are hand-painted, and she wears a coppery toned bell flower hat.  Her neck treatment and trim are genuine Japanese Cherry Beads and Swarovski Crystal Pearls.  The entire neck treatment is hand-wired, and embellished with polymer clay roses.

Our final fairies are The Fairy Twins (Earrings)!


Never separate these two darlings, as their devotion to one another is extraordinary!  Simple wirework enhances these mixed metal earrings of rusty black, brass and chocolate brass.

The Scarab Watch

There is one more piece in this collection of fairies and watches, and it’s the Scarab Watch.  Originally intended to include a fairy centerpiece, the construction made the watch so tall that it would have been impossible to wear without hitting it.  Still, it’s a beautiful piece, and although not strictly part of the line, I wanted to showcase anyways.









This watch brings together everything that’s dark and light, married with elegance into an Egyptian theme.  The scarab body and wings are raw brass, unadorned except for Paradise Shine Swarovski crystals.  The watch body is silver plate, and connected to the scarab wings with short lengths of gunmetal plated brass rolo chain.  Three lengths of rolo chain surround the wrist and are adorned with black filigree connectors, and a silver-plated and Swarovski crystal magnetic ball closure.

I’m honored to be able to show you these pieces today.  Coming up, I’ll be doing a postmortem of the B’Sue Boutiques Build a Line Challenge.  I’ll be discussing my evolution, both as a jewelry artist and a fine artist, and I’ll be talking about three different work styles I’ve identified during my struggles with the class.  I’ll also be showcasing each piece individually, and discussing the unique challenges that each presented.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the B’Sue Boutiques Build a Line Challenge Master Class blog hop!  I’m grateful to Brenda Sue Landsdowne for putting this class together.  I’ve learned so much in such a short time, and I’m looking forward to putting all the information into practice.

Keep your eyes peeled here, as the future will be filled with Product Spotlights, Component Reviews, Fashion Discussions and even an Art History Corner!  I can’t wait to show you all what I have planned!

As always, please read through to the other blogs on the hop.  It helps to boost our search engine ratings, and my friends have all worked so hard to bring you beautiful things!  Thanks for being with me on a wonderful ride – till next time!
