I really knocked out some chores on Wednesday. . .and by that I mean that you can once again see the counter top to my bathroom vanity. It does exist!
While wading through piles of lotion samples, bits of clothing tags, and lots of dust I took the opportunity to weed out some of my personal jewelry stash. I found a bunch of jewelry that I made when I was first starting out some ten-odd years ago. I thought it might be nice to share some of these before I dismantle them. . .well, some of them anyway. I'm going to show you what's going away and what's staying in the stash. First, the ones leaving. Let's have a moment of silence for the following:
|This HAD to be one of my very first pieces. It's just some seed beads, cat's eye beads ( I had a thing for those), and some larger clear beads on beading wire.
|Ooooh, THREE strands of seed beads on beading wire!
|A neat little double strand bracelet (those beads are more cobalt than purple) with tons of tarnished silver beads.
|I went through a massive phase with this simple bead weaving necklace design. It was tutorial in an issue of Bead and Button Magazine. I made them in ALL SHADES. I think I'm actually keeping one necklace in this design, just not this one.
Now, for those getting to stay with me (I believe they are chronological)
|Another simple seed-bead-with-a-few-larger-beads necklace, but this one has actually been worn a few times, even recently.
|Apparently, I was a one trick pony when I first started playing with beads. I sill really like this long-er, simple necklace with it's interesting cubed turquoise beads.
|I know this one's hard to see for some reason, but it's just freshwater pearls and crystals. This is my wedding necklace. There's no way I'd part with this one.
|This is simply a shell bead and yarn necklace made with a crocheted chain stitch. It's SUPER long and can be doubled and maybe even tripled.
I think I've gotten a bit better since then!
Anyway, here's some shop news.
|Red Balance Bracelet - NEW
|Major Drama Necklace - ON SALE
My to do list today is nothing like I expected it to be, so it's best I get started on it soon! Have a fabulous weekend y'all!
