1000 beads feature and new summer jewelry collection sneak peek...

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

It was a great mail week at this house! I received my copy of 1000 beads. My humble little barn bead is featured on page 346. I've only had time so far to quickly page through and wow, I  can't wait to sit and savor each page. 

 I am beyond tickled to receive these custom brass charms from Mary Jane Dodd. Rustic and seemingly time-worn inspirational totems that I will pair with my landscape beads for a new summer collection.

 I want to keep these simple- throw in your suitcase and hit the open road- type necklaces. It's how I roll.

p.s. my WANDERLUST pinterest board for more inspiration.

I am still working hard on my 'sea inspired' bead collection. I will keep you updated on when those will be hitting my shop.

Take me to the SEA...

Warm your soul and awaken your wanderlusting spirit. Tell winter to shove off. Almost a year and a half later, I finally decided my Fiji underwater video is DONE (done enough). Please watch and get a glimpse into my heart and creative mind. I filmed it (with an underwater case on my iphone), during our 2 week backpacking, island-hopping, epic adventure in the Yasawa Islands in Fiji. The morning light sparkled at low tide. The reef was an aquarium filled with color and life. Amazing. AMAZING.

Viewing is better in HD (click the little gear thingy and select HD)

My next batch of beads will be a "take me to the Sea" collection. Stay tuned on FB for previews and in progress works, including new whales (pictured below) and anchors and muuuuuccch more.

I decided I won't be taking customs/ reserves (of any kind) for this update. I will announce in advance when the shop update will be (with previews). To be determined, as I have lots and lots of beads to make!
