Skye Jewels and Humblebeads

My friend Marie from More Skye Jewels sent me a beautiful array of her wooden tile pendants and charms to pair up with my Humblebeads. Of course, what better why to enhance their vintage and nature vibe than to throw in a whole lot of Vintaj components with them!

The colors are soft and muted, I love their earthiness. I like how they look layered with filigree.

Some demand a little more attention and take center stage.

I love the distressed feel of the small charms. For many of the tiles Marie will drill the holes in any configuration that you'd like, the design possibilities are endless.

I have two sample packs of charm tiles from More Skye Jewels for two lucky winners. Leave a comment answering the following question:

What type of images are your favorite for pendants?

Winners for these will be picked next Wednesday.

first just let me say i loved your pieces that you showed.. my answers
were right at the top of my mind.
the two would have to be a willow tree and the second would be a hummingbird.the reason for my choices is quite simple,my dad and i planted a willow tree when i was a kid in our front yard,my dad passed away 24yrs. ago this month,
mom loved hummingbirds,she passed away 2 yrs. ago this past may.i had not been back home since my dad passed away,we took our mom's ashes back to California,i made my brother go by our old house,and there she stood,still mydad's and my willow tree.as for the hummingbirds,my mom's love for them passed on to me i collect them,and i think of her everytime i look at one.thanks for the chance to win some very beautiful pieces.
sincerely,

I like floral and abstract, but I love the tile with birds (swallows I think?)

heather said...

Hearty little birds like the chickadees on the mountain ash tile. There is something so admirable about those sweet little creatures!

quiltingjewel39 said...

I love nature - particularly trees. I like flowers too.

Eileen Bergen said...

I love anything botanical.

Thanks for the chance to win.

Lois Moon said...

I love botanical, but it can be fairly abstract. I just love the fluid feel and something that hints at a flower or leaf.

Malin de Koning said...

Words or birds.

I love these ones!

Patti said...

Butterflies, dragonflies and bees!

Mary Newton Designs said...

Malin de Koning said it! Words or birds! But I also like just graphic designs.

Heather, your pieces are just gorgeous! With heavy hitters like your beads, Marie's pendants, and vintaj components, how could they not turn out spectacular?!

I've been drooling over Marie's work for some time now. I'd love to be the lucky winner!

Jan Vermillion-Thomason said...

the charms are amazing.

i'm especially drawn to the last one shown - i love to use bird images for my pendants.

cw said...

These pendants are outstanding and creative, real eye-catchers! The possibilities are endless using these. I would love the opportunity to own them.
My favorite type of pendants are ones that are one-of-a-kind, unique pieces.
I cut out a portion of my daughter's wedding invitation which had gold stars, put it in a bezel and finished it off with the liquid resin mixture, then attached a star charm for movement and fun.

I like nature-inspired pendants--animals, flowers, and trees.

I love old advertising illustrations of everyday objects, the older technology the better. Like radiators, adding machines, typewriters, etc.

Tammy said...

I love earthy pendants. Oh and I love anything vintage or vintage looking... These tiles are such a great mix of both!

Monica Pena said...

My favorites are birds and leaves! And lately beachy themes are coming in a close third!

Carlene said...

Nature, and really old looking images. I like stuff that has a real organic feel to it.
Wonderful pieces!

Heather said...

Love these pieces, a marriage of materials made in heaven!!
I tend to gravitate towards faces with emotion or anything organic and related to the ocean. For some reason they touch my soul.

Mariela said...

cute insects like buttterflys, dragonflys or birds, flowers,faries, romantic vintage looking in general

LissC said...

WOW. those are such beautiful pieces! I love images of anything nature, animals and flowers would be at the top of that list.

Studio Sylvia said...

I don't have a particular favourite. What appeals is the jewellery piece as a whole. The pendant just has to be harmoniously suited with the accompanying elements. The pendants featured in this post are all lovely.

Elizabeth said...

I love vintage flowers or any flora for that matter. I also like highlighted abstract texture since I use polymer clay.

Marie has an amazing collection of pendants.

Klassy Joolz said...

Love, love, love the fabulous designs!!!!

I pretty much like any vintage look...birds, flowers, bees, vintage writing, skulls, antique keys and locks...so much to choose from. I really like Marie's owls, too.

Smiles, Pam

Linda Landig said...

I esp. love the flowers. These would be so cool to design with. Thank you for sharing!

Cynthia said...

I especially like nature and Victoriana. So a vintage looking bird or flower really floats my boat!
Your designs are stunning! Thanks for a chance to win these beautiful tiles!

Shaiha said...

It really depends on what look I am going for. I tend to work a lot with braiding so I am more interested in the colors

Rebecca said...

I absolutely love butterflies and birds. SOmething about wings and flight - the possibilities and the delicate movement they suggest. Loving the turquoise one at the top!
