I am branching out, dearhearts. I have used up some Soocho jade beads, and also cut apart a couple of old strands of Chinese “coral”, because what I can do with the beads individually is so much more delicious than just having them in strands.
There will, eventually, be a return to quilting and knitting and crocheting… but for now I am all about beads. Really, I dream about findings all night. Really. As a beading friend put it, jewelry making is “sparkly and fast.” Dang straight, that.
I have replaced the link to my Etsy shop, on the sidebar over there —–> with a link that should bring up all of my eBay listings. I’ll keep sharing the jewelry I make; some of it I’ll put up for sale (for fear that I’ll be suffocated by it if I don’t!) and some I will keep for myself. If you see something here that you like, then have a look there… maybe it can be yours . My favorite from this batch are the jade berry earrings… aren’t they scrumptious? *sigh* I’m such a sucker for dangly earrings.
ETA: hee hee, thanks to Seams Worth It for my first not-to-family sale. It’s encouraging!
