Memorial Weekend ramblings

I have had to work at a "regular" job lately so that has cramped my beadmaking/jewelrymaking fun. I have managed to get a few things made, but can't get a decent photo of them. I prefer to take photos in natural light (meaning going outside) and it has been so durn hot that my patience is short lasting and I just can't get the lighting the way I like it. I have added a few new items to my web page though (including some cool beads for sale), so feel free to take a look -

Here is one of the newer pendants - It is Green Snakeskin Jasper (beautiful) and one of my lampwork beads.

I have some other news, though. I am trying to get signed up for an art metal class this summer at the local community college. This is something I have been want to do for about 7 years. I love learning new stuff! If you can, Please send me some good vibes so that I can get into this class.

Have a great weekend!

Long time no blog

Yes, life tends to take over and I haven't posted in a while.
I haven't made much jewelry either, unfortunately. This bracelet sat unfinished since last summer and I have finally finished it today.

I have more in the works, but slowly. I have to build momentum to really get lots of good jewelry made. I may also have a reason (an upcoming show possibility), so that is always good motivation. If you see this and like it send me an email. You don't even have to buy it, just let me know it passes inspection. It is always nice to get feedback. If you don' t like it you can tell me too, but if you can tell me why, that would be appreciated. Hope to hear from you!
