Miss Fickle Frenzy! soon as I receive an order of patinated components from Miss Fickle, I seem to become instantly inspired and other projects are pushed aside!  All the colors are awesome and go well with a large variety of other metals, gemstones,  art beads, and fibers.  As you will see, I've been reaching for the turquoise, but I will broaden out in the near future.  It's all so irresistible!  Since I have quite a collection on hand before some of it goes off to the northern Wisconsin galleries, I would like to show you what I did.

                 The Sea Grass Hammered Bars are like two delicate arms, suspending the turquoise.

Here I have combined Indigo Washed Chestnut Chain and Coins with copper bicones.

                      I love these organic links!  This is Chestnut Opal with a rough garnet nugget.

The coordinating earrings and bracelet.  That Indigo Washed Chestnut Chain just caresses your wrist!

                                     Chestnut Chain with Water and Wood 16mm Links

                                                      These large oval links are so useful!

   These earrings are among my favorites.  You don't need a lot of embellishment on these beautiful                          Water and Wood rings.

More Water and Woods!  The chain in the center provides the added touch of contrast and interest.

             This is fun to wear and the Oval links lay so nice.  You could attach a lot of danglies !

The Water and Woods is so compatible with this turquoise!
                  I like using the silk wrap for a finished look.

                           A closer look at those colorful Water and Woods  rounds!

A Soot Black toggle with lots of chain!

                  MissFickle generously sent me two unbelievable black tourmaline nuggets
                 and some ceramic beads from MaCarroll, check out her beads!

                         The other black tourmaline with Black Soot chain, a no-brainer choice!
The clear quartz nugget is the perfect contrast and the heart is from my friend Judy's necklace!

Details!  Soot Black toggle,  secure and looks good in any position on a necklace.  I also used MissFickle's instructions on wiring the cut chain lengths back together, a neat trick with style!
See her blog, Monday, August 30, 2010.

                         Verdigris Mini-Discs flutter from any earring design or as a bracelet dangle.

Would you believe that I have lots more of these delightful parts and pieces?!  Sure you would,
because we all need something left to hoard and play with while waiting for the creative juices to
come our way.  The next display will include Violet!  Thanks, MissFickle for your love and 


  1. WOW! You are on a roll, Miss Sharon! These seem like a departure for your style, but one that is certain to take off! I love Miss Fickle. You have done her pieces justice. Enjoy the day!

  2. Wow, Wow, Wow! I'm especially fond of the necklace with the tourmaline nuggets. That has such a modern and cool look.

  5. Hi Im coming over from Hollys beautiful work! I esp Love the necklace with the black focals! Just beautiful.

  6. I am in love with EVERYTHING!
    Sharon, what you do with the rustic is so deeply resonating with me, I am inspired to bring back a few of the older pieces you have used here!
    From the bottom of my heart, thank you for this post.

  7. Thank you for the kind comments ,and hope there will be more for MissFickle to read also! Makes Shannon and me feel like doing even more! I think we need to encourage her to bring back the "older pieces", I don't want to be without them!

  8. These pieces are just gorgeous - so rich and vibrant, I really can't pick a them all.

  9. Those pieces are WONDERFUL, and I agree, Miss Fickle Media's work is awesome. Unfortunately I have a bad case of hoarding it and keeping it in a bowl as art! I need to break it out and share the love!

  10. Sharon, you have made many beautiful pieces with Shannon's components - wow! I am so amazed and just love what you have created. I especially like the necklace shown here that you were wearing at Bead and was really stunning!

  11. Wow, what beautiful pieces! Turquoise and Tourmaline and Missficklemedia and your creativity, what a combination. Love the water and woods, just gorgeous.

  12. You have such a great eye for design Sharon. I love the mix of rustic elements in these pieces. You must blog more often and show us more goodies!
