My entry for the Nebraska Bead Society's challenge, "Hard Wear":The challenge was to incorporate items from the hardware store. Bolts, nuts, washers & clasp all from the local hardware shops. Ayden also got in on it--he had his first trip to the "man store" as we like to call it.

I know, I know--I always get the same things! Turquoise, coral & pearls. Although there is some garnet & black onyx hiding in there this time too!

Saturday's color palette, "Champagne Tastes on a Beer Budget":
Shortened to just "Champagne", because I didn't feel like hand-writing that long name on the cards :)
The rest of the week for me will be working on earrings since my box is almost empty, and packing for this weekend's show in Kearney. Anyone want to come and help?

Last night I worked up a batch of ear wires--these will be patinaed and tumbled before they're ready to wear:

Also, I created some fused glass focals for those of you who have been asking for new pieces:
