Category: Fabulous Friday Finds

Wow!  Where did the week go?  It seems like I just put together the last Fabulous Friday Finds yesterday.  But I am having a blast sharing the wonderful handmade creations I run across each week.  The toughest part is keeping the shares to a manageable size - LOL!  All of these creations were found when browsing through studios, in the forums, looking at tweets or shared in various promo groups to which I belong.  Did I mention that this is FUN?!?

So, here are today's Fabulous Friday Finds #3 on ArtFire.  Oh!  Do you think I might be longing for Autumn considering the color palette of many of the finds?  Maybe . . . just a little.  

I am totally blown away by the realistic look of the "Fall Harvest Festival" natural glycerin soap by Irena of Gingers-Garden!

The swirly wire work done by Dawn of JewelryArtbyDawn sets off the shape and iridescent colors of this mother of pearl pendant perfectly.

Love the colors, swirls and modern design of this portfolio by Katie of GracefulArts - much of which was carefully HAND sewn!

This beautiful bracelet, created with white glass pearls and turquoise and gold seed beads, just makes me happy.  Imagine it on your wrist!  The bracelet was handmade by Cathy of CraftingMemories

"Embrace Change" is both a piece of art and a functional mixed media notebook.  It was carefully created by Rose of walkinthewoodsllc

Mystical looking "Always There" original 6" x 6" painting of a Newfoundland by Gunilla of KanweieneaKreations 

Peach aventurine is surrounded by orange Swarovski crystals, hematite and orange beads to create a perfect Autumn bracelet by Nancy of jazzitupwithdesignsbynancy

How about a gorgeous lacy, ruffled infinity scarf in "Sherbert" colors by Nikki of myMountainStudio?

Create beautiful jewelry with these ethereal looking lampwork glass leaf headpins by Nadin of Jewelry-Findings-Supplies

Wake up your wrist (and everyone in the vicinity!) with a rainbow colored polymer clay cuff bracelet by Valerie of Valerie'sStuff

A lovely accessory to top of your summer frock: vintage style cloche hat in sinamay straw fabric and ribbon flowers by Gail of CreationsbyGail

Just look how these earrings glow!  They were created out of peridot glass teardrops, white glass pearls, gold beads and chain by Kathy of Specialtivity 

And there you have it . . . the third edition of Fabulous Friday Finds on ArtFire.  I hope you enjoyed drooling over the featured items as much as I enjoyed finding and sharing them with you.  

You can definitely make my day by leaving a comment.  And any promo you can do will definitely be appreciated by all the artists in this post.  Thanks!

See you next week!

Such beautiful things. I just look in amazement at all the wonderful items the talented people here produce. I like the things I do, but i just sew for the most part straight lines. Yes, the free motion takes time and practice, but some of you.. all I can saw is WOW!

I love the leaves. I have always had a fascination with leaves. They speak to my soul. <><
