I almost forgot, a few weeks ago Lorelei and i did a trade...I picked this bracelet from her stash and requested an art bead in exchange for my Love Flies necklace , which she kindly shared with all of you on her blog. OOPS!, i forgot to post my prize, so here it is. Actually i've been wearing it to work a lot!....I just loooove it to death!! Sometimes my mind just fails me...UGH... i hate when that happens! i really do appreciate her trade, i got a beautiful bracelet with Heather Wynn beads that i think are extraordinary, a Nancy...Round Rabbit piece, and a fabulous design combination by Lorelei! What could be better!! She also sent me two beads from Tari at Creative Impressions in Clay. They are beautiful also, very organic and natural looking! Thanks again Lorelei!

Yea! i'm on a etsy ttreasury already, BUT i am computer challenged at times and can't figure out how to get it on my blog! I know it's sad, but can someone help?


I made these in the hopes they will make me feel better about work tomorrow! i just fell in love with these blue opals when i saw them on
The Earth Bazaar website. And i adore the chalcedony, the color is almost ethereal! Plus the length makes me feel glamorous! (HAH!)
o.k, o.k. after lorelei's hounding and my procrastinating, long hours on the computer, and neglected jewelry creations (i'm dying spending time on this you know!, i want to be sitting at my table making all the new pieces that are in my head, with all my new stash stuff from the bead show today!), I AM FINALLY ON ETSY. thanks to all of you for your support and for being so nice and for giving me that great BIG push!! i have lots more to list but at least i have a start. everyone has been so nice to me, i feel as though you are my friends. thanks again!!
NOW it's DOREEN"S turn, right?! http://doreenwilley.blogspot.com

Green being one of my favorite colors, and Gaea being one of my favorite bead artists, this just seemed to come together for me. I might just have to wear it on monday to work to help make me feel queenlike! sometimes jewelry really helps me to feel better about the day or helps my mood, but in general it always makes me feel GOOD.

my new bracelet for the abs challenge! kind of quirky abstract, heavily influenced by a terrific artist named Lorelei. i had fun with this and it helped me open up and take my work with a bit freer approach.
there will be more to come!! gaea beads always make it better too!

this is my most recent necklace using gaea's winged heart pendant! i just love her stuff!! by now i guess you can tell that i don't do a lot of sparkly sparkly,
(even though i like to wear it sometimes ), and i like a lot of organic, earthy, and natural looking. also like off center and off kilter design. i get bored easily and constantly go back and forth between doing classic things and new and different things. the photos below will show you what i've been up to lately. keep in touch everyone!


my latest pair of earrings made with my pendants
and some wirework.
these are new faux amber(ish?) clay beads i made, i thought they turned out pretty nice.

these are the newest ones. actually, the newest ones came out of the oven about an hour ago but i have to tweek them yet!

just like sue beads, who also lives in pa., spring popped up in my yard too today!! it's sooo great to see new life! the weathermen really screwed up the forecast today and said it was going to be cold, and it turned out to be 65 degrees!! it was just awesome to actually have sun hit my body, i swear you could feel it soaking in the vitamin d!
can you tell i'm totally sick of gray?!
so anyway i went outside to take some photos of my new pieces and clay pendants. please let me know what you think, i think i might try to sell them on etsy or i would also love to do some trades. some of you have left some very nice and encouraging comments and i really appreciate it. i really like a lot of the work everyone else is doing also.
