Stink Eye, Bead Trends and Sale


I wasn't in the greatest mood on Sunday when I sat down to make beads, and the first bead I made was the one above. It didn't really start out to be a stink eye (or evil eye bead) but it was just what I needed to get myself motivated and laugh a bit!

I received my advanced copies of December 2009 Bead Trends today - Yay! What a beautiful magazine. It's so classy, I really like it! I have a Christmas-themed bracelet and earring set on page 116 you should check out! Also, you can buy the magazines as a download too, for a much nicer price. Me, I like to actually hold the magazines and flip through them - I sit at my computer enough as it is!!!!! The beads I used are Winterberry Sparkle and some are in the etsy store right now, or you can order them on the SueBeads Web Site!

The surprise 15% off sale is still listed for all beads in the lampwork beads section of the etsy store - probably later tonight I am going to switch it to another section, so if you want any bead sets on sale, you should probably grab them now!

Thanks for the link for ordering online mags, they take so long to arrive here in Australia that I do like to buy some things in PDF format. Nothing does beat laying in bed reading a mag though!

Had to indulge in your etsy store too, you are my very first buy!

Art Elements Theme of the Month - January - Use Your Stash

Usually I'm so much better about the January Use Your Stash Challenge (hosted by Lindsay Starr this time), but this year, time is just not my friend. Between the holidays, going away on vacation, and getting back to work and trying to make new beads, there's just not a lot left in me at the end of the day.  But I did manage to get this pair of earrings made using Inviciti heart charms, some new metal spacer beads I just got, and some titanium hematite beads picked up at a Bead Fest here and there! I really like them, mostly because they are simple and hearts are my thing!  Check out what everyone else made! Thanks for stopping by!

Art Elements Theme Challenge - August - Swirls

This month Marsha Neal chose swirls as the theme of the month! I'm enjoying the challenges as themes. I've been giving my wrist a break because of perceived carpal tunnel, so I've been doing a lot in polymer, and by a lot, I mean when I have a few half hours of time! Here are the swirl themed polymer items I made for this month! This first one reminds me of a fiddlehead fern, all closed up. I painted it with alcohol inks. This next one is the before of the ammonite hearts I did. Two of my favorite things, ammonites and hearts! Colored with alcohol inks.  I made two, the colors turned out very different! More spirals in the form of polymer clay ammonite cabochons. I really love mixing the paints to color these! Plus you get a gratuitous flower shot!  More ammonites colored with ranger patina inks and alcohol inks in that order.  My fave, I think - I love the colors! Alcohol inks. This next one was made with acrylic paint and I tried crackle on it, d
