Bead Stash

These are beads I made last summer. They have a little bit of white paint on them. Something different for me.

No more pink....for a while anyway

I was so tired of pink. I pulled out this pendant that I made back around Christmas and finally strung it up with some beads. I really like it but it is too big for my taste. Hopefully someone will buy it.

STOP! Put down the chocolate bunny!

This is one of those projects that you stay up till 3am to finish. I had it in my head that I was going to make something eastery. I used mini candy molds and made teeny tiny chocolate bunnies. When my husband came home from work he thought they were candy! I just barely stopped him from putting one in his mouth. Hehehehehhe.....that was exactly the look I was going for. I added a little color with pearl liquid clay tinted with chalks. Finally, chocolate that doesn't add a pound!

Hey! I've got something to say!

I love stuff with random words on it so I decided to try my hand at stamping words. I made a ton of beads with different words. This is the only one I strung so far. The picture is kinda blurry. I t looks much better in person.

Pink Explosion

I had all this pink leftover from a cane I made so I kinda went nutty with pink. I tried putting the same old flower I love to use on a disc. I also made some coin beads for the earrings. I am obsessive about everything matching, so I figured it is time to start putting some handmade beads on the earrings as well.

By Request

I did a peach flower like this and someone requested that I do it in pink. I almost kept this one for myself. :)

Going in Circles

Add ImageI made a ton of this style of necklaces. Round, Heart, flower, even triangle shaped. I don't think I will make another for a long time. I think I need to do some experimenting.

Selling Update

Well the things I gave to my friend's mom to sell sold. So I made nine more sets and gave them to her the weekend before Easter. So far, however, nothing has sold. I think it might be because my pieces are priced high relatively to the other merchandise, but I'm not going to lower my prices because I'm not even charging for labor. SO we shall see what happens.
