Satellite


Here is my latest creation, Satellite. You can view the actual listing HERE.



I decided to create something a little more versatile and unisex. This can be worn on the included neck wire as a necklace, or you can wear it on any choker, rope, chain, necklace of your choice, slip it on a leather wrist band as a bracelet, slide it on a purse or bag strap, slide it on a belt, whatever floats your boat.



This is a substantial piece triple woven for durability. Features rubberized matte black cabochon, ribbed spikes, natural Serpentine beads, Hematite beads, and Japanese seed beads in matte olive green and matte and opaque black. Pendant measures 2 1/4" in diameter and projects outward one inch. Black steel neck wire is 1mm, 18" long, and closes with a secure twist clasp.

Coming Soon...a New Necklace!

I have unintentionally taken a year off. Life has been so busy for me. But I am happy to report, although I have tinkered around and started a few smaller projects, I finished my first piece in a year and will be listing it for sale on Monday! I have been struggling to find the time to bead and have been doing half an hour here, an hour there to complete it. I know it has been a long time coming and I hope it is well received. I tend to like things dark, uneven, unusual and this is no different. I would post a sneak peek, but my new browser is not supported by blogger so at the time I cannot post photos unless I link to them elsewhere online. I will post it here once I list it in my store.

~Happy Valentine's Day!~

An update

I've been so busy lately and haven't had the time to bead.

I've been feeling the beading bug biting strongly and since we've moved and adopted another (2nd) rescue dog -another adorably bratty Min Pin...



 
I've put off unpacking and organizing my studio. I've been starting to sort through everything and set up, and I found my sketchbook filled with more designs than I will ever have time to make. It is exciting to see how many different things I came up with and makes me laugh because my brain never stops; I get ideas from memories, emotions, shapes, beads, etc and I sketch my ideas as I get them on everything - I have napkins, tissues, receipts, post-its, torn bits of paper, bills with sketches & notes on them and only a few in my actual sketch book! I can't wait to get back to it and just create. I've forgotten how fun it is.
