Tuesday Tips and Art Jewelry Elements Reveal


I love how these came out. They are Gelish and I wish I could remember the name of the color but I am so sorry I can't remember. I was so proud of myself because the brush was all messed up in the bottle so I grabbed my trusty gel brush and applied this color that way :-) 
I was so not telling my client I couldn't use the color she picked!



I was the lucky winner of these beaded beads and beaded leaf from my friend Kristen Stevens.
I had to beg to get these beads back from my daughter, she thought they looked like berries and was feeding them to her dolls.

I created this bracelet from the beads. I added acorn bead caps from Vintaj to the beaded beads.
I layered this Vintaj leaf on top of the beaded leaf for some interest and some additional texture.
I found these lampwork glass from PinkBeach, Polymer beads from Humblebeads, pearls from Hobby Lobby and a dozen or so spacer beads all from my stash.

Hi Shannon,
I love that color on the nails and it is wonderful that you are quick thinking. The bracelet is gorgeous I love how you all the colors blend well with each other and puting those caps on the beaded beads was a good design idea.
