Handmade Stained Glass Double Pinwheel Appalachian Quilt Square Pattern with Mixed Opalescent and Stipple Glasses
Add interest to your window with this 6.5 inch stained glass quilt square! The double pinwheel is a traditional Appalachian quilt pattern that is quite fascinating, with interlocking twisting squares. This stained glass panel is richly caramel colored with earthy mottled browns, gold streaked with reds and soft minty green. The glass in this piece is a lovely combination of Youghiogheny and Bullseye glass. The combo is absolutely stunning and the subtle colors and textures create a beautiful contrast as the colored pieces pinwheel around the square. There is a crystal clear beveled square of glass in the center.

Green Verdigris Peace Pendant with Green Turquoise Chain Necklace OOAK
Give "Peace" a chance with this fun BOHO hammered brass pendant and chain necklace. The Zola pendant is a rustic beaten brass that has been engraved with the work peace in a live cursive design. The pendant was then washed with a green verdigris finish to add a subtle aged appeal. On each side of the pendant I opted to add a little fun by putting a Preciosa celsian crystal round charm. On the opposite side I added an adorable small, caramel tassel. Both the crystal charm and tassel will add a bit of gentle movement to the necklace. The pendant was then attached to elongated bar chain also by Zola. The chain links are 16mm each and are turquoise green with brass wrapped around the sides. For the closure I elected to use an antique gold lobster claw clasp by TierraCast. TierraCast products are only produced in the United States with a high reputation for the quality of their plated jewelry findings.

1957 Chevrolet Tri-Five Bel Air Hot Rod Custom Car Spun Polyester Square Throw Pillow
1957! Elvis Presley appeared on The Ed Sullivan show for the final time, and the first Frisbee flew through the skies as Wham-O ler 'er rip.
General Motors was busy too; they were producing a series of cars that would surprise even them. The Tri-Five group 55-57 grabbed the attention of every lover of speed. Easily customized and highly coveted, the 1957 Bel Air is iconic and has a cult following.

This beautiful machine was sitting in the hot, Florida sun one car show and its brilliant colors made you put on your shades.

Antique Copper Heart Lady's Wrist Watch | Topaz Glass Wrist Band Round Face Women's Watch | Lady Green Eyes Jewelry
Elegant antiqued copper watch featuring dark topaz picasso Czech glass window beads.
Look no further for the perfect watch to wear with all of your outfits; this handmade watch band is sumptuous and ready to wear. It features Czech glass table cut window beads 8x12mm rectangle -dark topaz / picasso (artistic edging on each bead is why they are called picasso)
Tiny dark red spacer beads with fine black lines on them have been used for the spacer beads between the Czech glass beads.
Textured copper hearts adorn each side of the watchband. Antiqued copper T-bar toggle clasp secure and connect the watchband. I have used silver wire protectors; these protect the movement of the band against the toggle and the watch face and add to the longevity of the watch band.
The watch face is antiqued copper circular shape and there is a fine rope design running all around the edge of the face. The face has a white background with black numbers.
This watch is a joy to wear and very comfortable.

Bohemian Necklace, Balance Word Necklace, Boho Leather Necklace, Inspirational Word Bohemian Jewelry, Leather Jewelry, Tibetan Bead, Tribal
The word "balance" is the inspirational pendant on this boho leather necklace with Greek ceramic beads, a hand-carved Tibetan bone bead, pewter spacer beads, and medium-brown deerskin lace leather. The pendant is roughly 1 1/2 inches in length. It is impressed with the word "balance" and has a color combination of blue with brown lettering.

The Greek ceramic beads are Mykonos pieces and come in two different shapes: tube and washer. The tubes are bone and deep brown in color and the washers are turquoise and olive green. The bone bead is from Nepal, and was carved by Tibetan refugees there. It is decorated with the ancient "evil eye" protector symbol, and so looks very much like a talisman. I bought it in a Tibetan-run dharma shop in Newport, RI. The pewter beads are daisy spacers and add a nice shine and metallic glint to the necklace.
