Different Strokes...

Crystal, fiber, mixed media, natural stone,'s all good and all a part of my personality!

Dreaming of Running Away....

Does anyone else get the urge to run away and hole up somewhere (preferable someplace warm!) to rest the mind and body while at the same time work on their art/craft? I'm getting that urge. It's getting quite cold and grey here in the Northeast, my day job is physically and mentally draining, so that when I do have time off I find I have no energy, never mind gumption, to do my other job, which is to create new art and/or jewelry.
Of course if I did fly off to a warm island somewhere, how would I transport all my BEADS???!!!

What I've been up to

It's been awhile due to family circumstances...
This is what I've been working on over the last few months due to the fact that I've actually sold some and they get the most 'views' on my etsy site (
Hope you like! I am making them in different color combos, with all silver beads, and with all black beads, they are felt ball beads beaded with glass beads on black stretchy cord....

Found Treasure!

After moving recently, it's taken awhile to unearth some long-lost are a pile of antique black beads (jet?), the facets are definitely hand-cut...can't wait to see what else turns up as I unpack my supplies!
