I've been so busy working on tutorials, and bead soup, and magazine submissions, that I haven't just had time to sit down and let the creativity
So, earlier this week, I sat down and just started pulling out beads and chain, and created this little beauty.
It's what I do best I think. Simple embroidery with earthy colors and my favorite metal...copper.
I've really gotten into wearing my necklaces long lately, and unlike some of my recent attempts, this one looks great worn really low.
I've listed it in my shop here if you'd like to see more pictures.
Still sticking on the long kick, I created this one as well. The two marquis shaped beads are black onyx, and I've embroidered around it with this funky green color and some bugle beads.
The chain? I made it.
I made simple loops on eyepins with a charcoal gray bugle bead strung on and then linked them together (which took fo-ev-uh, by the way). It's long too, 24" in fact. (Yup, that's a lot of wired loops!)
It's in my shop also, right here.
In other news, I'm leaving tomorrow to visit my dad.
He lives and works overseas. Waaay overseas. Two of my sisters are going with me and we're meeting him in Madrid for a few days before I head on over to where he lives.
So, having said that, I'll be away from home for the next two weeks, but I will have computer access, so I'll still be able to e-mail tutorials (maybe with a little longer of a delay), but any jewelry bought from my shop will ship when I gets back on the 21st.
Margie and Me is still on though and I hope you'll play along this month!
I really like the palettes for this month and I think it's gonna be a challenge.
Have a great weekend guys!
P.S. Viajar is the Spanish word for travel...and while I am looking forward to really using my Spanish, I'm not looking forward to the inevitable immersion headache....
