Customer Gallery

Every now and again I love to share the work of my amazing customers!
They have been outdoing themselves recently...get ready for lots of eye candy!!


Meridy of Two Trees Studio has been going crazy with my new Long and Lean pieces.
She's calling this collection the Trickster Series.
Aren't they delicious!!


Meridy also made these wonderful Fairy Tale earrings with some of my little Owl Components.


Kelly Hosford Patterson of Pyxee Styx created this beautiful Morning Glory Bracelet for a blog Challenge. Very creative!


Norbel Marolla of She Flies Again made these beautiful Chandelier Earrings, she always does me proud!


And these Bohemian Sticks by Norbel are so wonderful!!


Catherine Waterhouse of Shadow Dog Designs was one of the first Artisans to use my Components way back when I first started making them. She's used some of my newest Colorful Copper pieces in these beautiful Earrings.

In response to Catherines comment about when I started making components available it was February 2011
is the post if you want to take a look at how it all started!


Catherine often donates some of her proceeds to the Humane Society and I love to send her goodies especially for that. This Goofy Dog Pendant above is named after her wonderful Fur Baby Seamus!


Gloria Ewing of Chrysalis Tribal Jewelry never disappoints!!
I LOVE her rustic tribal vibe!
Gloria was also one of the very first to use my components in her designs!
Thank you so much for helping me get started!





These beauties are made by Helena Benkoczka of Areto.
I love how she wrapped the nuggets!



Another beautiful creation by Helena using my Long and Lean pieces!
Helena also makes wonderful Polymer Clay components!

Last but not least some gorgeous new earrings from my friend Linda Landig!

I'm sure I've missed some wonderful Artisans and I'm sorry if I did.
 Feel free any time to send me pictures of your creations and I'm always happy to share!

We're All Ears Challenge Reveal

I'm so happy to participate in the challenge this time, I try every time but it doesn't often work out.


I'm calling these Hemisphere.
All the compartments on the ceramic beads by Golem and on the copper pieces put me in mind of the inspiration images.



This is actually a design I use quite often but this time I decided to add the little dangles at the bottom and I love mixing metals so I chose little Silver beads.

These Earrings are available for purchase HERE.

Check out the other reveals here on the

White Copper

Long and Lean

I decided I hadn't played with *White Copper for some time so this week I made a few new pieces. I made a few new and re-created some favorite Copper pieces in White Copper.

Curvy Lace 3 hole pair

White Copper Lotus Flower

Stained Glass Discs

Flower Burst 3 hole

I included some regular copper as well, very handy that they can be fired together!

Stained Glass Scallop Edge 3 hole pair

It's been awhile since I've done this shape, and the more holes to play with the better.

Flower Burst Rounds
Most of these are already listed HERE on my website, just a couple more to go!

I also re-listed some in my Etsy Shop like these

White Copper Ammonite Squares
As always if you purchase items from both my Website and my Etsy shop I will refund the extra shipping costs.

Pods and Sea Horses etc

Pod Earrings
I'm loving these Pod earrings, I used Artisan Components from 3 wonderful artists.



Sea Horse Pair

New Paisley Sea Horses, aren't they adorable!

Embossed Flowers

More Embossed pieces, I'm obsessed with these at the moment!

Leaf Pair
 These cool leaves are actually not new, I've been going through my stash of stuff that never got listed and getting some of them out there. They've always been popular so I think I need to make more!


Black Polymer Clay Scarab
Another from my stash, Gorgeous Black Scarab! I have an Ivory one in my store as well.


Ammonite Bead sets
 I just made these, I've made them before and always loved them so I made this multi color set and a few more too, including the Ivory set below and a set of Turquoise in my store!


Ivory Ammonite Bead Set


I hope you've enjoyed seeing my work, old and new!
My shop is full to the brim, I hope you enjoy browsing!

More Embossed Copper

I've been busy making more embossed copper pieces, I really love the look and it's so much fun to find different shape and texture combination and find out which ones work best!


The flowers in the picture above have sold but I'll be making more so please check back within the next couple of weeks.





A fairly new shape for me, I love the long pieces and with 3 holes there are lots of design possibilities. This texture is Mehndi and as of right now there are a couple available for immediate shipment.


I've been using this Shard shape for some time but these are new textures and I love them!


A few more Shards in different textures. The first 2 pair on the left are sold but more will be coming soon. Both are listed for Pre-Order.


Another beautiful pair with Delicate Mehndi texture, I adore the texture gently swirling around to the center and each one is a little different but beautifully matched.

Where have I been!!!

Where have I been, it's a long story. I last posted on December 25th, that's over 2 months ago. A very long 2 months for me. To make a long story short I spent Christmas with a cold that turned in to Pneumonia by New Years. By the time I finally kicked the Pneumonia I got a sinus infection. I'm just getting my energy back but everything takes me longer these days but I hope to be back at full speed soon.

I have been working for short periods lately and I have some new stuff to share. I will be working on listing them this weekend but if you want anything give me a shout, no need to wait until I get them listed!






That's it for the new Colorful Copper.
Here's some beautiful copper that has not been colored.












That's most of my new work. As you can see even though Valentines Day has passed I had fun making embossed hearts and seeing which textures worked for the center of the heart.

Hope you enjoyed my bit of Eye Candy and hope I'll be back soon.

I almost forgot, I was planning to switch my blog over at the first of the year but none of my year end plans happened so please click HERE to follow my new blog, I changed my business name from DreamSomeDesigns to KristiBowmanDesign quite awhile ago and I'm finally getting to changing the last few things. I'll be transferring it over in the near future and hope I don't lose any of my wonderful followers!
