More progress is being made to get ready for the M.O.N.A. show this weekend! What are you looking at? This is an entire tray filled to the brim with bracelets and coordinating earrings. Three bracelets and three or four pairs of earrings for each color palette--all different, of course :) I do have some extra beads--so be looking for those on Etsy soon--maybe before I go this weekend if I get the time.

I finally finished this lariat!
I'm so happy it's off my table and ready to go to Kearney next weekend! It turned out quite lovely, but not the way I had thought it would go. I planned for this larait to be more in the bronze family, bringing out the color of the center beads, but it wanted to be more blues/yellows, bringing out the colors in the side beads. That seems to happen to me a lot--but when the piece calls out for a certain bead, I must go with it!

More studio pics! I'm almost finished painting:

Installing electricity sure does make a mess of the yard! But I now have power:

And check out this cool cabinet for the studio I got at a garage sale this weekend:
I'ts going to be fantastic for my glass stash!
