I just purchased...

thses adorable "Love Bird" earrings for myself: Sweet, yes? Etsy is so full of wonderful people and beautiful things---you really should shop there! Here's where I found my earrings:

I also love these if anyone wants to get me a birthday gift. Hint, hint :)

I decided to make....

some cabs: Sherri Serafini will be here in may, so I wanted to make some cool glass cabs for beading around :)

A gift...

for a young girl who's favorite color is orange: From my new collection of "So Charming" component jewelry:
Of course, it can be worn several ways just by removing parts from the clip or adding different charms and rings. Priced just right---with charms, clips and chains (or earwires, if you'd like earrings) at just $3.00 each! Complete line will be available in February at the studio or any of my upcoming shows :)

of the nuclear reactor variety: One-eyed, two-eyed and three-eyed little babies "Chernobyl Fish". What's not to love?

What do you call...

a grouping of frogs? An army? If so, here's my little army of frogs. Cute, yes? I like them :)

of the birds: About half my flock went to new homes on Thursday at the Bead Society meeting:) This is what I have left. More will come, I'm sure!

More vessels....

Are being finished:
Birds are coming to roost in the kiln, a couple news ones every day! Pics of those later this week :)

Flowers, rings....

and birds:
The birds are new, and folk-art in style. I only have the two, but the rest of the flock will be joining them soon :)

An actual set...

was made this week! "Seaweed"

Don't forget that I'll be in the Studio this Saturday, from 12:30-3:30. Come see new beads in person, or bring your own project to work on, or just hang out with other beady friends! I'll be working on my vessels--so if you'd like to learn flat Peyote stitch, now's your chance!

In the Studio...

this Saturday, if you want to stop by and see the beads!
Or maybe you want a quiet place to bead for a bit? Some company? I'll be open from 12:30 until 3:30. I'll be working on making these peyote bands. The bands also make really cute rings for your fingers! Want to know how? Bring some beads and I'll show you! Or better yet--buy some new seed beads that I have in the studio for sale :)

Not a new color combo....

or even a new shape: Just more beads for you to enjoy! Hand-shaped barrel beads in brights :)

I haven't made....

vessels in quite some time! But I'm back at it for a bit: What's new? The peyote band! I love the texture it adds to the piece.
Look for this one and a few more next time you see me!

Is it too early...
