Featured Artists! S & T Creations

This weeks featured artist is Teri Baskett of S & T Creations.
All of these beautiful creations are made by two people, Terri and Saundra of Jeffersonville, IN, who've been friends for many years and making jewelry for over seven of those.  They pride themselves with the fact that they never duplicate a piece of jewelry, so that the proud owner of one of their creations can rest assured that they will never run into someone else with the same piece of jewelry.  These are truly gorgeous!  Don't take my word for it go look for yourself.

My featured artist for this week is Tammy of Tamsjewelry. Love her jewelry! Check out these gorgeous earrings.

Love the color of these earrings! Tammy is a busy Mom that works outside of the home plus makes her beautiful jewelry in what little spare time she has and enjoys spending time with her 2 young daughters and her husband. I know from my own experience as an artist, it isn't just creating the jewelry and art, it is photographing, listing on line, selling at local venues and marketing yourself. It is a full time plus job and this woman does that and takes care of her family and another job. I applaud her and marvel at her beautiful jewelry. Here is another one of my favorites.
This gorgeous dark brown leather bracelet is made with 4mm turquoise Mountain Jade Gemstones.It has gold leaves and blue glass seed beads.It is 8 3/4"long with double snap closure. You can find Tam's Jewelry at her

Steampunk SNOOKS

I just finished this little lady titled "The Key To What A Girl Wants". This one started out with this gorgeous pewter colored pendant with pearl accents and a gorgeous scalloped edge. On top of that I added a vintage Elgin Watch Face along with a vintage skeleton key and topped that with this beautiful winged brooch and then finished it off with one of my hand painted fused glass faces. The skeleton key is accented by this row of rhinestones and silver.

Here are 3 new SNOOKS (Sweet Novel Original One of a Kind Sensations) ready for adoption! These little ladies are such a hoot!
This one is "Above The Clouds". I just love her wings and her body that is rhinestone encrusted. Then there is the faux peals that represent the clouds.

This one is just too funny, she is called "My Legs Are Too Short". She is surrounded by rhinestones and Swarovski glass crystal around her neck.

This one is called "Blushing Pearl". She is made from a vintage filigree brooch that is accented with the prettiest shade of pink pearls.

These little ladies I call "SNOOKs"(Sweet Novel One of a Kind Sensations). Each Snook is made using one of my hand painted fused glass faces along with some of my other found treasures. Each one is truly one of a kind. The first little Snook is called Madeline. I love her expression and her wings are a combination of enamel and rhinestones. Her dress is an antiqued brass pendant.

This little Snook is called (Time Keeper). She started out with a silver pendant as the backdrop with a vintage Elgin Watch Face attached. One of my original hand painted fused glass faces is attached and then this gorgeous enamel and rhinestone encrusted bee finishes her off. As a finished touch I then added orange and green Swarovski glass crystals around her neck.

This little Snook is called "Twinkle Toes". Her wings are absolutely gorgeous. They are a beautiful peachy coppery color and it looks like stained glass. Two little pearls hang from a copper chain which looks like she is dancing.

I will be adding more in the next few days.
