I have been working on a rather large project for the past few weeks and haven’t been able to give as much time to my beads as I would like to. I really need to make sure to set aside time each week to work on creating and designing jewelry, it really relaxes me and boy, oh boy, can I use some relaxation now. Jewelry creation has been a passion of mine for years, and it keeps getting interrupted by all the other things I need to do in life! Luckily, I am blessed by a supportive husband who loves me and wants to see me succeed, so that helps. He helps me overcome my anxiety and frustration and for that I can’t thank him enough.
Even with life exploding all over my creative time, I have been able to create a new piece for stock and wanted to share them with you lovely folks. In the next few days I am hoping to have this bracelet and all the other new pieces in the store so folks can purchase them if they like them.
The first piece is a lovely bracelet that would be perfect for someone with slightly smaller wrists. I can fit it on my wrists but it’s a wee bit tight. Swarovski crystal makes this bracelet sparkle! It was created by me, the pattern is by Ellad2.
I have a bracelet on the workbench now too! I should have it finished in the next few days. Here is a sneak peek. I’m working it in purples as that is my second favorite color!
I have so many ideas for my own patterns, and I am thinking of uploading a few of my own patterns for download here on the blog, what do you think? Would you like some simple patterns to download? I have a few I made for several classes I taught last year. Might be fun to see what you guys can make out of them!
Last but not least, something totally not bead related!
For years I have wanted to add a bit of color to my hair. I used to dye it bright red. But I’m already a bit red in the face so it wasn’t exactly flattering. I wanted something that would take the rosy cheeks and tone them down a bit. So I found a lovely hair stylist and she gave me a few streaks of blue! It’s such a great color of blue too, I absolutely love it. She also added a lighter patch in front, where all my grey is because I love the stripe of white! If it wasn’t such a pain to grow out I would leave that part natural and wear it with pride! Since I have no patience to let the color grow out, I figured this was the next best thing.
Take a look!
