I am so proud of all the work I got done last night. I finished up the beadwork on my broach. Now all I have to do is put the pin back and add the trim. Then that's one all done and ready for my next giveaway. I also finished all the beadwork on my large sparkly "fish scale" cuff. This cuff is about 2 inches wide and oh so sparkly and pretty. I just need to add a clasp and I'll be done with that project. Now I only have to finish up the beadwork on my bead embroidered cuff and finish up my latest guitar in my musical cuff series (hint, it's an acoustic). I am on a roll lately. Hell yeah! And it's time for the next ArtBeads project. Ohhhh, that means I get to place a bead order!!!!
I listed this fun blue and white spiral rope today. I love, love, love making these. They are so much fun and pretty easy. I love how just changing a bead here or there changes the looks so drastically. I plan on making a bunch more in the future (I already ordered a crap tone of different beads to make a rainbow of spiral ropes).
But this one can be found HERE in my etsy store (15% off and $1 shipping). It's 24 inches (60.69 cm) long and is a wonderful light blue and white necklace finished with a fun lion's head button I picked up at a thrift store a while back. I really like the button, it's kinda fun and I think adds a quirky aspect to the necklace.
And in show news, I've started looking into art shows for the summer. I've decided not to do as many as I did last year, just a few local ones and that's all. With the new house, I don't see us having as much time to sit at art shows all weekend, we'll need some of that time to do the upgrades on our list. So I've started to make my list and will start applying soon, so hopefully I'll have some shows to add to the list where you can come and visit me.
