More Sky Jewels

     I just finished shopping for my family who live far away!  Yay!  I shopped mostly on etsy and had the presents shipped dirrectly to my family.  This is the first time I have done this and it is the bomb!
     I just finished this necklace.  I fell in love with the pendant from Moreskyjewels and it sold before I could purchase it.  I convoed Marie-Noel and she was kind enough to make me another one.  She is awesome.  Let me know what you think of him. :)

    I've been really productive lately getting ready for my first jewelry party.  I am excited and anxious.  I've been trying to keep a balance between making the funky jewelry I love and some more conservative jewelry with neutral tones and simple design.  I realize that not everyone wants to wear more daring designs. 
     I tend to feel vulnerable when putting my jewelry out for view.  But my confidence is growing and what's important is enjoying the process right.
     November 12th is the big day.  I will be sure to share how it went.  In the meantime here is more of my work for the party.

 This blue pendant is from summer studios.  I might have a hard time parting with this necklace.

Fun with friends!

   Last weekend I went away to Cape Cod Massachusetts with some of my friends.  We had a wonderful time together.  It was so nice spending time with them.  I feel lucky!  Here are some pictures of our trip.

Bead Table Wednesday

     I have been making more goodies for my jewelry party.  There is nothing like a set date and RSVP's to get your creativity going. 
     My 10 year old daughter tried out for her school play today.  I am so proud of her.  she has a beautiful voice and a spunky personality.  I told her even if she doesn't get a part she is already a winner because she faced her fears and tried out.  Fingers are crossed for her. 
     Here is a picture of my bead table.  What a mess!!!! That just means I'm having fun.

Bead fever!

I woke up this morning, sent my kids off to school, and stepped into my studio.  I put on pandora radio on the Adele station and got to work.  I was in the groove.  I had a productive day. 

Here is some of what I made.   This first necklace you can wear short or long.  I put a lobster claw on one end and fashioned a hook clasp on the other side.

  This necklace is perfect for fall.

 This final one is made of ceramic rings.  I love the colors on the rings.

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.  Have a great day!

Studio setup

I set up an area in my studio where my friends and neighbors can shop.  I bought the printer box at the Brimfield fair.  It already had the hanger on the back.  The old iron racks I got from a junk shop in Maine a couple of years ago.  I am happy with how it turned out.

 I also made a couple new bracelets.

Have a wonderful day.

It's a wrap

I was inspired by Lorelei to try a wrapped bracelet.  She was kind enough to share a link on how to make one of these beauties.  I think they turned out well. 

 I found these beautiful shell beads in of all places Joanne's fabrics.  I love the earthy colors. 
Here's a new necklace.
 Here are some new earings.

Let me know what you think. 
I am participating in the lima bead challenge.  I can't wait to receive my package of beads.  Hope you are having a wonderful day.

Brimfield Fair

My friend Stephanie and I went to the Brimfield Fair today.  We took our kids and they were troopers.  It was extremely hot and humid.  As always Brimfield was a feast for the eyes.  I absolutely love it. 

 These ceramic hands were cool looking.  O.K. maybe a little creepy too.

I love how this vendor displayed his treasures.

 I purchased some beautiful pewter beads.

And a printer drawer to store some of my beads in.

When I got home I couldn't wait to make something with my new beads.  I think this bracelet turned out pretty well.  Let me know what you think.

Watch your thoughts, they become your words
Watch your words, they become your actions
Watch your actions, they become your habits
Watch your habits, they become your character
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.


This is a quote I saw on Kindovermatter.  Have a wonderful day!  And leave a comment if you like.  I would love it.
