Sick Sick Sick




Hi! I am so sick - this has to be the worst cold I have ever had. Really...I don't whine when I get sick! I've had two kids! I had a horrible hemorrhage after I had my daughter, lost half my blood and almost died. I've had cancer! I don't whine - but this cold is kicking my butt! So, even though I have some beads I really need to make, I just can't play with fire today, with my head this fuzzy. It would be stupid! So, I'm going to list some beads, take some photos, and make a bracelet for the Art Bead Scene February challenge. In between laying down and blowing my nose and drinking tons of liquids (my throat hurts SO bad!). We're supposed to get a snowstorm here soon. We are also supposed to go see Jack Hanna tonight, I wonder if he'll travel with this impending weather with all his animals? I would love for it to be rescheduled for a day when I feel better!

I am sorry you are feeling poorly but your new focal are so sick. (At least I think I am funny.)
Sorry to hear you are under the weather. Take it easy and don't feel like you have to keep pushing. Put up your feet and let everyone wait on you. We, all women, don't get enough credit for how super human we are most of the time.

Does this mean I need to soak my beads in hand sanitizer when they arrive? JK! Sure hope you feel better soon - colds are the worst! The beads are great - especially that last set of rounds. Definitely my colors!

Sue, you poor thing. It's OK to whinge when you feel bad and you sound so miserable. Hope you are feeling well soon!

Happy Accident!

Months ago, I took a class at ArtBliss given by Barbara Lewis of Painting with Fire. It involved learning how to make torch-fired enamel beads. I loved it - as you may be able to guess. Barbara did teach us how to fuse items into a flat pendant, but we didn't spend a lot of time on that process, as the day seemed to go so fast! I was making enameled pieces the other night, and due to my own ineptness (remember the big toe burn???) I was able to fuse these two pieces together totally by accident. Now of course, it isn't a usable piece. However, now that I know how to do it, I can see some pieces like this in my future! I can't wait to get more copper cutouts!

Art Elements February Theme Challenge - Birds of Prey

Cathy Mendola chose Birds of Prey for the theme this month, and it's a pretty awesome theme. You are going to see some amazing work by my team members and the guests who have participated this month! I had plans of doing more than I did, as indicated by the purchases I made for the projects I had in my head. However, I have been doing some work in my house, so whenever time permitted, meaning after work and weekend hours, we were pretty much doing the room renovations. One of them is going to be my study/studio, and I seem to be foiled at every move by trying to get some work tables. So I have only one small project to show you this month.  But first, the purchases!

This first Bali carved owl totem I got from fifirosedesigns on etsy - I wanted to make a mold and make my own cabochon to use in a necklace. However, I really did get around to doing that. So, I purchased the owl heads below.

These owl head cabochons are from ArtisticVariations84 on etsy - they are just fantastic, but …

January Art Elements Theme Challenge - Moon

Lindsay Starr chose moon as the theme for the AE Design Challenge this month! Great choice, Lindsay! I knew I had a pendant from Vincent and Nooma from Inviciti that I wanted to use, and I have some moon face polymer clay cabochons I had made a while ago, so I was all set!

First, I used the pendant to create a simple necklace. I haven't strung beads in a very long time, and being that I enjoy simple designs for myself, I set out to find the perfect red beads. I chose faceted red jade from Golden Age Beads.  I also spied some other beads I really want, but am basically on a buying freeze so....maybe another time! I separated the red jade beads with some cute titanium spacers I had picked up at a bead show a long time ago, and I highlighted the pendant with some gold alcohol ink to make the moon show up better!



The second piece I made was influenced by Game of Thrones. Late to the party as ever, I just started watching it. I'm on Season 3 Finale - I use it as a carrot to make my…
