Maria's Black Flowers

Commissioned piece - my customer saw the BrightBright bracelets in my gift cabinet and asked if I could make her one in her favorite theme of black and white.  Easy peasy.  The big, floppy fringe flowers are in opaque black glass beads with white glass rounds in the center.  The right-angle weave wrist band is in matte black,  with a hidden magnetic clasp.

I've nearly finished loading the ArtFire shop with all my finished pieces - now I can get back to work on my most recent bead embroidered piece.  It's my favorite thing to do.

So there'll be more later, for sure.


Fueling the Art Fire

All the finished mookaite pieces have been listed now.  Four dozen more listings and I can get back to the making of things.

Time for a nap in the afternoon heat.  More later.


Vacation Time - Or Is It?

We're spending most of our vacation hours doing things we rarely get to do - movies in the middle of the week, getting a massage and a long soak in a hot tub, eating at favorite restaurants - but it's also time for me to get caught up on bookstore organization and getting my beadwork listed in their new cyberstore location at Artfire.  Here's what's been listed just today:

 Sunshine Daisy Butter Mellow

 Raven's Nest

 Mondo's Diner


I still have about forty+ pieces to get listed - but we still have six days.  

There'll be more later.  Naturally.
