Recycled Giveaway!!!

I broke this jar:getting ready for my sale yesterday. Sad, I know. Vintage! Tragic. But I made these gorgeous beads:from the broken pieces. Recycling at it's finest, I'd say :) And I am going to give them away at my sale this Saturday!! How do you get in on this? Just show up at my sale on Saturday, 8a.m. until noon--gets your name in the box once. Spend at least $10.00 at my sale--get your name in again!! I'll draw for a lucky winner to receive the entire set of 31 green recycled beads. Yum!!

I actually did finish another piece for my shows coming up, the Second Sister:
Remember the First Sister? One more to make, I think, before my first show of the fall season. Ask to see her when you come over on Saturday, why don't you?

My last Saturday.....

at the Piedmont Farmer's Market! Come see me!!

I worked all week on this cuff: Does anyone out there know what the center stone is? (Carla says it's Chita Jasper) The ones on either side of the center are black onyx. At the back are labordorite stones:
Lots of seed bead stitching!!
All leather interior, as you can see. Don't ask what the white spot is--maybe something on the camera lens?

The first Saturday in September is my Craft-Destash Sale in front of the studio. Need my address? E-mail me! And don't forget to pre-register for the lariat class--details to the right of your screen :)

No beads, but I have been busy :)
This Saturday will probably be my last at the Market--I have something scheduled for every weekend in September, so it's going to have to be the end. If you'd like a schedule, please e-mail me, or pick one up at Market on Saturday!!

New Glass....

"Odd Lots" from Bullseye Glass for your enjoyment:

Also, a new-to-me display box, made from a drawer of an old desk found in Omaha. After a good dusting and removal of a dead spider, here you have it:
I added the paper backing and cup hooks for necklaces. It's not quite full, but you get the idea of it, anyway. Lovely with the new "Autumn" line, don't you agree? See it (and me, of course :) at the Piedmont Farmer's Market Saturday morning!!
