It's the same ole racket...there just aren't enough hours in the day, so my blog is suffering. I was bound and determined to post today, at least try to get back in the grove and what better time to jump back in and show what's on my bead table. Sounds like a great idea, right?...except that when I got around to photographing my bead table, the battery in my camera? Dead! Ugh!
Moving on to Plan B...instead here are a couple pieces that were recently finished, just in time for the craft show I exhibited in this past weekend.
I really like this style bracelet-the charms and a nice big hook clasp. I made this bangle so that I could "destash" my bead table, if you will, except for the starfish. I sawed it out...practice, practice.
I love Nan from Spirited Earth pieces. There are many times I've pulled out one of my coveted pendants to use, rubbed it a few dozen times, and decided that I wasn't ready to part with the pendant yet. Crazy right?! But this time, it was different...I was ready, and I've been on a starfish kick lately. Besides, I can always get more, yes?
These earrings were made to go with the above necklace. I'm wiped out of the lovely Thai starfish, so once again I made my own.
Finally, these earring (below) were donated for the Chinese auction. My little sister put all her tickets in to try and win them...no dice:( BUT...I know someone else will enjoy them.
I've been going crazy lately texturing metal discs, but that's for another post.
Hopefully I can get back to my blog again this week.
