I was home today with a sick child - bummer - but as he is 12 and not violently ill (sorry) I had some time. I put on some Annie and, magic. Seriously! The muse takes over my body. I can't open my bead boxes fast enough. I am grabbing beads from each box and creating on the fly. Something from each box. It felt SO good!
There have been several blogs around the high cost of silver these days (crazy high) and yet that is what I am drawn to. Using my silver wire. Wire wrapping. I figure that as I have it, I may as well use it. Once it is gone, I am not sure how quickly I will replace it. :(
This piece is approx. 44 inches long and made from red chinese crystal (it is a rich as velvet), black frosted glass and ivory bone. It can be doubled up. I do love this. My daughter looked at it and all she could say is "want".
Earrings from coin pearls and labradorite.
Earrings of red cinnabar and a cute flower charm from Happy Mango beads! (love them!)
Below is what I was working on for Lorelei's Fusion Bead challenge. I am happy with this necklace but didn't feel that it was worthy of the challenge as it doesn't use the clasp or leather or the seed beads. Oh well.
There is more on my work table as we speak (perhaps you will see what is there for BTW). I would love to know what you think. Thanks for stopping by.
