|Lively lampwork from JavaBead. The two lampwork spacer beads are by Sue Kennedy of Sue Beads. I love how they coordinate with the JavaBeads!|
|I love both the shape and the color of these lampwork beads by Sue Kennedy- it makes me yearn for a creamscicle (anyone else remember these frozen treats?)|
|More lovely lampwork by JavaBead|
|Yes - I was on a JavaBead binge! - Beautiful denim-blue.|
|More lovely lampwork by Sue Kennedy|
|Lovely - and I mean lovely - lotus pendant by Barbara Bechtel of Second Surf fame. I flanked the pendant with some ceramics by Natalie McKenna.|
|I CANNOT stop making the spiral link chain that I learned in the e-course by Kerry Bogert!|
|My new love - Jasper. I am determined to find it in every color, as I believe Mother Nature would want me to!|
|My mother fell in love with this necklace the second I pulled it out of the tumbler.|
|This focal was handmade by Melissa Meman of Melismatic Art Jewelry (whom I met at artBLISS last year - such a sweet lady)! She posted this focal and others on her blog and said she would "maybe list it on Etsy"...I was so glad she did! I have no idea how she created this masterpiece but I plan on quizzing her at artBLISS this year...I hope she is going!|
I hate to pick a favorite - but this one is truly IT for me! I ordered these beads from Sue Kennedy's direct website (as opposed to her other shop on Etsy). They were so pretty that I wanted to try and make them even more special. So, I bought a Rolled Bead Tutorial EARLY LAST YEAR (ahem) and dug it out. I really love how this necklace turned out!
|Of course I made earrings!|
I still have 3 necklaces to finish up before Saturday morning - they have been "made" but I need to antique, buff, and tumble. In the meantime, my little world is expecting its first substantial snowfall tonight/tomorrow in FOREVER! I am so freaking excited! It has been way too long...
Thank you for stopping by! I love to read your comments! :) Enjoy the rest of your week!
