Bead Girl Gone Crazy

I just can't help myself, I go to a bead show and there are so many pretties. So here is a preview of what you might see in the coming months from me.

This first shot is the entire bead stash that came home with me:

Next we have pearls pearls pearls:

These next three pictures are beads/charms you may or may not see in jewelry to be sold, I bought them primarily to make myself jewelry, I'll have to see if I can part with what I make from them:

Pressed glass czech beads that will make their way into some fine jewelry:

Some Raku ceramic findings and pretty colored drops that will make it out of my stash as closures and some embellishments on some pretty fancy pieces:

Here are some semiprecious beads just waiting for stringing - ah - I can see it now - and some pretty amethyst i picked up - no peeking mom!

Gorgeous charlottes ready for beading in some intricate designs!

Getting it all together

It's been a while, January was a blur of catching up from being sick in December. We had repairs to our heating system, the house blessing, doctor appts, dentist appts . . . oh the list goes on. So here we are in February and my goals are this.
1. Get ready to have my taxes done - oh and I started off so well last year, but really dropped the ball after June. Time to play catch up.
2. Get my web sites updated and photos of all my jewelry.
3. Finish at least one piece of the five pieces of jewelry I have started.

Can't sit here chatting, must get to work!!
