So today I finished off the felted pendants--they're all ready for my next few shows! More bracelets have been getting finished--this pattern is from the recent Step by Step beads:

Since I didn't have the satin cording on hand, I used a hand-dyed silk ribbon. I hope to have some disc bead sets like this up on Etsy next week if you want to make your own bracelet!

What shall I make for my shows tomorrow??

Long time no post!! The show in Kearney was fabulous! Lots of cool people in to buy beads & see Ayden. He was such a good boy, as usual! Here's what I've been working on:

My beaded art doll Serena is finished--here's a close up of some of the work that went into her:

Stop by one of my shows to see her in person!

I finally had time to make one of the "Pirate's Plunder" bracelets out of the current Beadwork Magazine:
It was fun to make, but don't look for any more to be made by me--this is a one-time occurance!!

And finally--some beads! I think these are real show-stoppers!! "Raku Rolos" will be on Etsy shortly! For more pics & a price, click the Etsy link on the right.
