Uniquely Eva M Designs – NEW Cobalt Blue Sea Glass Necklace

So for awhile I’ve been trying to figure out what my particular “niche” is — I definitely have trouble committing to one creative task alone (jewelry, magnets, cards, sewing projects, etc.) and my shop is certainly a reflection of that.  While the majority of my work is jewelry (both beach glass and beaded), I also have bookmarks, magnets, acrylic paintings, coasters, etc.  And I intend to continue that trend – I’m excited to be moving back north so I can pick up my sewing machine and get busy on some fun fabric projects!

That said, I have also wanted to find that one thing that makes Eva M Designs special.  I’ve been thinking about this for awhile, and earlier this fall I had narrowed that “thing” down to beach glass jewelry.  Granted, it’s still a broad base there — lots of people make beach glass jewelry.  What makes me and my work special?  Well, I think I figured it out.

When I started making jewelry, my focus was on the “young professional” trends I was attracted to as a new teacher — styles from The Limited, Loft, etc.  I still like those styles, and as you can see in my shop, I am definitely still creating those looks.  However, I realized recently that there is little in the world of beach glass jewelry besides pendant-type necklaces, bracelets in linked glass pieces, and dangly or stud earrings.  I want to meld that beach glass world with the “young professional” look I admire.  I want to create necklaces that stylishly scatter beach glass throughout chains, that recreate the big bulky modern — almost costume jewelry — look, using the beautiful pieces of glass I have found on the beach.

Well, this weekend I started this venture! I would like to share with you my FIRST product in what I consider a NEW line of jewelry!

New Photos!

I have been messing around with photographing (wow, that looks like a weird word) my jewelry pieces.  Today I got the idea to get some tiles from Lowes to use as the new surfaces.  I really like how they turned out!! I found that the dark, near black tile I had was too dark — it ruined the color of the sea glass.  The lightest tile I had was also less than satisfactory — the beach glass kind of faded into it.  The middle one was “just right.” (There’s a little Goldilocks wisdom for you.)

About Eva M Designs

About EvaMDesigns

I needed to find a way to fund my crafting addiction…

So I ended up on Etsy a few years ago after I decided I wanted to make jewelry. Making jewelry, however, branched out into ceramics, and then acrylic paints, and then chalkboards and magnets and coasters and pillows… You get the picture.

There is just something about creating things that I can’t help but love. Some of my favorite memories are the days I’ve spent throughout Novembers and Decembers making Christmas presents with loved ones for our families and friends, and the excitement I feel when giving those gifts can’t be compared. If I could afford to live off this work, I would quit my job in an instant!

While I can dream that someday that will be down the road for me, right now I just squeeze my crafting into the few hours after work I have available to me and on the weekends that always end too early. Though I might not have two hundred things listed in this shop, you can at least count on it that all of the items you find have been carefully crafted into these unique creations and that all of the care and joy that went into their making will follow them home to you.

 ❤ Eva M Designs
