Time for my nightly cuppa....

Is there anything like a hot chai tea when the wind is blowing and the snow is falling?

Ayden and I broke away for some Mommy time at the movies today...Big Hero 6.  Excellent.  I recommend.

All and all a successful day.  Kiddos.  Sales.  A good day.  I'll take it.  Now......bedtime.

Headpins!

Made on copper wires, about 4" long.  Lots of room to get crazy with your wraps;)



These are a bit Chihuly inspired


And of course some leaves!


I have a nice handful of each type ready for my next show.  I will no doubt be listing some on Etsy as well.  In time, folks!

Looooong break!

Long time no see!  I am going to try to do better for 2015.  A tiny goal, for sure.  But a goal nonetheless.  If you want weekly-sometimes-daily updates, like my Facebook page!  Jodie Marshall Lampwork Beads.

Been busy...


Making earrings:


Looooong earrings!

To fill up this cool new display piece:

It is an old handmade case that used to hold sewing supplies.  I have re-vamped it to hold earrings and the like:)


I will be in Hastings at the Fairgrounds on Saturday, September 13th......lots of new beads and jewelry!!!

Stinky Dog Bead Challenge Reveal!!

Reveal Day!

First, a necklace, of course!  I used the large ring, inserted a button, then hung the gorgeous bird from it:


After I finished the necklace, I went on an earring-making binge:).

First pair:

Second (and favorite) pair:

                             

I had to get out some seed beads for the third pair:

                                     

The double-hole beads were a bit of a challenge, but I managed to pull these out:

 

Finally, a full shot of the necklace:



Here is a list of the other participants...be sure to check out what they made!!

Bead Soup Blog Party Reveal!

Reveal day!  You can see what I received from my partner here!


This is the lovely focal that my partner, Kristi Brokaw made.....all dolled up with some fun fringe. 




And a shot of the entire necklace:




Matching earrings:)


I had to put the matching clasp on the side.  It is so lovely that I didn't want to hide it in the back!


I used the Amethyst and the gorgeous peals for the back and down the sides:








It's very photogenic, right?  


I don't usually love purple, I tend to go more towards the blues/greens.  But I really love the gold and purple combo I was sent.  This piece went together easily..it flowed without any second-guessing about what it wanted to be.



Now that you have seen my creation, please go check out some of the other participants!  Here's a link!

And more....




Jewelry

I am on a serious jewelry-making frenzy.  Who knows why?  It is best to just go with these things as they come along.  I am sure I will get back to bead making soon:)

Finished!

I finished my Pitaya Necklace from Jill Wiseman Designs!

I didn't follow the exact design, deciding to replace most of the beaded beads with my Lampwork beads.

I did make a single focal beaded bead, and naturally had to add a bit of fringe!
