New in the Shop ~ hand-drawn art focals… handcrafted by my sister!

Finally! Finally!

We've been anxiously preparing for this day… so many details and processes to finalize first… but at last you can now find my sister Bethanne's gorgeous art focals in my etsy shop!

For practically forever Bethanne and I have been "partners in creativity"—we aren't always working on the same project together, but we constantly bounce ideas off one another and find great support in each other. For so long we have both dreamed of spending our days making various pretties to share with you… several years ago that dream came true for me… and now I'm so thrilled that Bethanne is just embarking on that same dream of her own!

And I'm equally excited to see what you all dream up with her brand new hand-drawn focals!

Come take a peek at the first ones, now live in my shop

Each focal is a miniature work of art—carefully and individually hand drawn in color pencils (no transfers!) on shrink plastic by my sister, Bethanne. All of her designs are her own original work, and as you've probably already guessed, her favorite motif has always been roses, but you'll also see a sprinkling of boho style wildflowers in monocromatic shades and whimsical garden posies—each one is a perfect way to add a unique touch of floral beauty to your next jewelry design!

This one all started as a birthday gift for meI absolutely love the soft woodsy colors and free-form shape.

Add a row or two of pretty art beads in black and white… or a silk ribbon for a gorgeous bracelet!

Perfect for earrings or connectors on a long necklace.

I used this same pendant in my AJE CoM necklace for April.

"Rosalie" in snow white, ebony, and crimson red…

… and also in goldenrod, autumn orange, and chestnut brown

See them all in my shop here!

  1. Oh my word! These are so beautiful! They are delicate and rustic and I am sure they are light as a feather. Speaking of which, I need to get some of yours! I will jumping over (and likely breaking my bead fast! ;-) Enjoy the day. Erin
