More Custom Work

A friend brought me some pretty blue crystal teardrops and asked me to whip up some earrings for her. Here are the results......

A New Look

I am trying out a new background. Some bling! There so many gadgets you can add to dress things up and have fun. That said, I hope that the new look does not detract from my pictures or is too busy. I'd love some feedback so click on the comment area below and let me know what you think!

Custom Work

A friend recently picked out some beads that she liked and had me make these for her. The large beads are India glass. The larger silver beads are from Bali. The rest are assorted Czech glass and seed beads. These will look great with her long wavy red hair!

Odd's n Ends

One day in my old studio I decided I needed to sweep up the wood floor. The result was this amazing pile of assorted beads. Now don't worry, I'd never make your bracelet out of beads swept up off the floor! I got a mixing bowl out of the kitchen and opened up all my bead boxes. A pinch of this and a dash of that and I had a beautiful mixture. I made a variety of necklaces - long and short, single, double and triple strand, as well as a variety of bracelets.

I still have some of the memory wire Odds 'n Ends bracelets in stock - they are fun and indestructible. One size fits all and no clasp to hassle with. All have been SOLD.

Thinking of Spring

The first of March and I am thinking spring. And that means some serious gardening! Digging in the dirt, whacking blackberries, trimming shrubs, removing dead leaves, moving plants, etc.

Several years ago I made a series of bracelets and earrings I called "glass gardens". They are made with a variety of pressed glass beads, size 6 seed beads as well as a very cool magnetic clasp. I recently stocked up on supplies, found my notes and am preparing to make more of these very popular items. All have been SOLD.
