Pretty in Pink

I've just finished necklaces for a mother and daughter. They both like pink, but they are very different! The mother's necklace has firepolished rose crystal beads with gunmetal bugle beads with round garnet accents. The daughter's necklace has lavender and hot pink beads, with little crystal beads in between. I think the necklace made for the under 13 age group turned out well, so I think I will be doing some "little princess" necklaces in the future.

On another note, I've been working on Halloween projects. A beaded black cat wall hanging is almost done, and I've also started a little sign that says "BEWARE!" I'll get those posted as soon as I can, but with the busy holiday weekend ahead of me, I may not be able to get them done for a bit.

Have a great holiday weekend!

My First Sale!

Thanks to my friend Liz who had me make some special earrings for her friend! She is officially my first sale! :)

This time of year makes me nostalgic for the job I had 10 years ago at the Kansas City Renaissance Festival. 10 years ago, I started dating the man who would become my best friend and love of my life! I hope you enjoy these rare photos from my past!

More Beaded Jewelry

I have a couple of new items I've made for friends. I also made 6 new necklace and earring sets that I will be listing on this week - they are very cool! I can't wait to see what you think!

Today I have to switch gears to scrapbooking, so I'll close and write more soon!

A Ghostly Post

I am very excited to have listed my first non-jewelry beaded item on! I have spent the last few days making a ghost with seed beads. It turned out pretty well, and coming soon will be more Halloween delights!

A Pirate's Life For Me

I have just completed my first bead mosaic. Not bad for a first time, I guess. It didn't take as long as I thought either. Next up I'm going to try a black cat, a ghost and a pumpkin for Halloween!
