Long Necklace, Threaders GALORE, + Chance to score some free earrings =)

I saw this made-by-Swarovski black rose 2 months ago... stashed it and never really figured out what I wanted to do with it till a few days ago:

It's a longer necklace, and not yet for sale because I need to take some better photos. Fits right over the head.

I got tons of threaders today, so I went threader crazy and made a bunch of these:









They're my disco ball earrings. SWAROVSKI Crystals are priced not only by size, but also by how many facets (or cuts) a crystal has. The more facets, the more expensive a crystal. This is one of the few crystals of this size that is as expensive as some larger crystals I've used. So yes, they're slightly pricey for its simplicity, but I promise they're beautiful. I've seen them on hooks (much cheaper) for a higher price, so I think you'll enjoy these =)

SWAROVSKI also JUST released their Spring/Summer 2010 collection, and of course, I've gotten my hands on some already:

Introducing Ceramic Mosaic Faceted Round beads from SWAROVSKI.



And also made some heart threaders:




Another Alice Bracelet:


And Paris Necklace:

My-Linh said...

Everything is super cute! I'm pretty simple with my ice cream so my favorite Cold Stone creation is white chocolate mixed with Kit Kats. So yummy!

Shop N' Chomp said...

I've only had Cold Stone once or twice so I can't recall the creation but my fave flavor would have to be STRAWBERRY!

Elana said...

Ahh! I loveee Alice themed things! My favorite coldstone creation is the french vanilla icecream, with marshmellows and oreos mixed in! SOOOOO DELICIOUS! The texture of the marshmellows in the icecream is to die for..=D

I don't get cold stones that often since its been cold & rainy lately. however, i do love their mint chocolate chip ice cream (don't quite remember the name of it) but it's really good. a great combo! some people don't like it but i do.

I love how refreshing it feels when you put it in your mouth . Cold, Minty & Chocolatey!

Match made in heaven ;) <3 hehe

xoxo
Nikki

My favorite ice cream from Cold Stone is Mint Ice Cream with Oreo Cookies. ^^

Angela said...

I never ate coldstone =[ it's so sad. My fav flavor is cookies and cream which i am currently eatting xD

the video was really cute ^.^ do 2nd/3rd graders know what molecules are?

Stacey said...

I've only had Cold Stone once and I don't really remember how it was.. but I used to work at a Baskin Robbins... it's too hard to pick a favorite, I loved trying all the different flavours!

If I really had to pick one it would probably be GREEN TEA :D

richerd said...

Hummm, my favourite type of Ice cream is definitely mango.

I've never had Cold Stone ice cream but next time i spot one i'll be sure to give it a try! What flavours do you recommend?

DP said...

i like it simple, just french vanilla. If I'm feeling adventurous, strawberry cheesecake, i like the cake bread bits :)

Yah, i was wondering when you'd update! I am so digging those little disco balls... Although, this might sound like a dumb question but...how do you wear threaders? Wouldn't the fall off? I'd be so paranoid about losing an earring :(...could you model a picture or something ^^;; thanks~

evie said...

i have never tried cold stone ice cream but my favourite ice cream flavour is chocolate mint!

Serena said...

The heart threaders are so cute! and I really like the Paris necklace. Everything is so pretty.

{*Yum} I love cold stones but recently I've been more into yogurt. I would say my favorite at Cold Stones is the Strawberry Shortcake Serenade. I love the combination of the sweet cream ice cream and strawberries.

hana said...

OMG THE PURPLE AND BLUE THREADS ARE SO PRETTY <3

cold stone! sadly I have yet to try cold stone ugh what is wrong with me >.< So for normal ice-cream flavors, my favorite would be vanilla. Its plain and boring to many I know but I realized the other day as I was eating a McD cone that vanilla is really familiar and comforting-like where I would probably never get sick of the flavor ever <3

Esther said...

Oh the new mosaic beads are so pretty! God, I absolutely LOVE Coldstone. I don't even know which one is my favorite because I don't go very often and I always want to try ALL of them! Hmm.. I think I'll go with the Birthday Cake one that they have. Gotta love that cake batter ice cream! AND SPRINKLES! :D
Now I'm all excited. XD

KITZY said...

like ur new layout! the purple heart threaders and the paris necklace is super cute... love the masquerade mask! and my fave coldstone creation would have to be strawberry shortcake... its sooooo good!!

muffincrash said...

I never heard of Cold Stone xD But I love rum ice cream and yellow melon ice cream :D

I LOVE those third heart threaders ♥

baby-kk said...

I have never ate stone cold ice cream but i googled it and sounds soo nice ;O my favourite flavour has got to be sorbert ice cream, mango or vanilla <3 all simple flavours but can brighten your day ^^

Yim said...

I love Cold Stone and their Birthday Cake Remix, its sooo good and I get it every time. It never fails =D

superwoolu said...

how can you be so creative??? you're always coming up with new stuff!!! i think the ceramic mosaic earrings are very chic.
also i've never tried cold stone icecream! is that an american thing?? but my favorite ice cream is either black sesame or green tea!!

Saving Capulet said...

i died when I saw that paris necklace! great great works!

Jamie said...

Paris Necklace is hot.

That is such a hard question. At Coldstone's, I usually get one of these ice cream flavors: French vanilla, strawberry or mint. And my mix-in is usually one of these: chocolate chip cookie dough, kitkat, m&ms or brownies.

Haha, big fan of chocolate in my ice cream. <3

Pauline said...

I love the paris necklaceee !

I've never been to coldstone, even though theres one a few blocks away from my school (yeah sad), but my favorite ice cream flavor is cookies and cream! :D

or, if its starbucks ice cream, caramel macchiato(sp?). :)

Shiseiten said...

I love the heart threaders. I've never used threaders before though...But they look really pretty! And I like the black rose necklace you posted a preview for.

Lets see, I don't really like cold stone that much, but I think my favorite is mint and then I put in oreos. :D pretty much i live by Mint Oreo or Reese's Cups ice creams. hahaha.

mingyenhuang884 said...

My Favorite Cold Stone Cream Creation Is Mint Ice-Cream,Chocolate Chips, Hundreds & Thousonds Sprinkles And Strawberry Sauce. =P

And My Favorite Ice-Cream Flavor Is Vanilla. =)

Kittenhayley said...

I've never been to Coldstone - no excuses I know - there are several in my town, I guess it's because I prefer frozen yogurt :)
Do they have frozen yogurt at Coldstone?

yumiko said...

i love your creations. can i order from you? i love the paris necklace and the heart danglers for the earings.

Susan said...

It's been a while since I have been to a Coldstone. My favorite mixture has to be chocolate ice cream with marshmallow and caramel sauce!

You have been sooo busy. Love the new earrings and the new necklace!

yumiko said...

hey lisa, sorry for bugging you. i just forget to order b/c you got so many cute creations that i want all of them.

hrm. for my favorite CS ice cream creation would be Strawberry Banana Rendezvous b/c it has gram crakers and i love strawberries!

my second choice would be coffee lovers only, b/c i love coffee flavors and the almonds as nuts. i would ask them to add granola in it also.

Jeri said...

I'm from New Zealand and I love jelly tip ice cream! Also there is a ferrero rocher flavour I had recently which was amazing!

Emmeline L. said...

The Coldstone around here got closed way too fast so I didn't get to try any of their ice cream! But my favorite flavor has to be Ben and Jerry's Phish Food! The little fudgey fish are too cute :)

contests and such said...

I'm lactose intolerant so I can't really have ice cream. I do like their sorbets though. I would have to say their Raspberry Sorbet is the best.

London's-beauty said...

ahh wow, they look great, I'm 1 day late, a bit sad but it's okay x]
