So Many Beads....

...not enough time! I have so many beads (three more bins not pictured) I want to play with and 15 or so different projects I'd like to start...creative overload!! I guess there are worse things to have!

I'm finding the fun in netting again! I haven't done this stitch in a very long time and I'm finding it just as fun to do as RAW and actually looks a little lacier than RAW.

Something New, Bad Photos

So I made another version of "Screening for the Girls". This one is single-bead RAW, while the original is 2-bead. The other cuff is an all baby pink single-bead RAW, I've called "Be in the Pink". $5 of the proceeds will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

The New Stuff

This one is "Screening for the Girls Cuff" and $5 in proceeds will go to Susan G. Komen Foundation.

This one is called "Give Cancer the Raspberries Cuff" and will also benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

This one is called "Rainstorm".

This one is "Breaking Dawn" and it has nothing to do with "that" book!

And lastly, "Brassy Cuff" which is actually more copper than brass, but gorgeous nonetheless!

New Stuff Coming

I have three completed simple cuffs and working on a fourth. Three of them are in the pink family and will have proceeds donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. I'm thinking I may list all of my newest pieces in my Art Fire shop. Well, maybe one or two in the Etsy shop just to get some "new blood" in there. I'll have photos tomorrow.

I Love Fall

I know, most people love spring with the earth wakening from it's winter sleep, but I love fall. The smells in the air, bonfires, the colorful leaves, school starting, the cool crisp mornings and nights (perfect sleeping weather) and just the whole transitional time between hot, humid summer and cold, dreary winter. I don't mind the rain or cloudy skies either.

I'm also inspired by the colors of fall...I just got my latest bead order and in it are the most beautiful, tiny 15s in olivine green, some lovely 11s in dusty purples, topaz and grays. I'm currently working with metallic burgundy iris and they are gorgeous, too! So, what am I waiting for??? I'm off to bead....

Another new piece. This one is all an all black embellished RAW cuff & the perfect accessory to that Little Black Dress! (black opaque Japanese seed beads, black Swarovski pearls and black Swarovski crystals with a black satin ribbon "corset" closure)
