shop/ life update...

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Lots of things going on around here! On the shop front, I have some new pieces that I am pretty excited about. Feathers in all of my favorite new and old glazes.
 I made the feathers with these long necklaces in mind. A perfect excuse to use some of the beads that I've been hoarding hanging on to for awhile (fossilized bone and this glass).

 I think I only have one set rustic beads left in my shop- but I will be making more. I really dig these!
 I've been using them to make earrings...

And some other favorites of mine that are currently in my shopola...

 Now, for some life updates. I really do more than make beads....some weeks at least ;) Luke and I went strawberry picking!
 Luke has been busy putting siding on our garage (to match our house). We had the house sided when we first moved in...but then ran out of money. Luke read a DIY book on putting up siding and so far, he is doing a smashing job! I can't wait for it to be finished- we acquired an old cupola and will be putting that on the roof with a weathervane.

 AND best news last.... my baby brother is getting married this weekend!!

That's all folks, thanks for reading. Have a great weekend!


  1. That is so cute, the pictures of you with your brother! I have to ask, did you have your dress on backwards so YOU could tie instead of mom?
    I love the glass beads. Any chance of seeing them as findings? Your stuff is great. Keep up the good work.
