I’ve spent quite a bit of time between last Wednesday and today trying to decide how I want to go about stocking stuff in the store, and trying to balance my desire to share my craftiness with you, and the weird way I feel when I go on and on and on about how much I enjoyed making something, and how wonderful it is, and OH BY THE WAY, it’s for sale. So. I am going to continue to tell you about stuff, and probably in great detail. But not if it’s for sale. If it is for sale, I’ll just throw up a thumbnail at the end of the Wednesday post, no matter what it’s about, to let you know that I have added stuff to the jewelry page.
Accordingly, I made this necklace and bracelet set this week:
I’m totally loving how it came out. I used part of a package of Blue Moon Natural Pink Mix beads (these packages are huge, and go a long, long way. You can see how far they go if you look at this picture and the thumbs you’ll eventually find below–HUGE). I also used a package of “frosting” glass chips in lavender (lavender??, they look pink to me! and again, they go a long way.) These are also made by Blue Moon. Finally, I used some seed beads, from Global Nomad, Brown Opalescent Rainbow, also made by….Blue Moon. Apparently, I like Blue Moon Beads, LOL!
I am having great fun mixing and matching the colors and textures of the beads, ya’ll. It’s so interesting to see how the pieces are so different even though they have so many common elements.
Give me an hour or so to get that page polished up, ok?Excuse me. Restart that clock, I’ve had a wee photopress vomit experience.
