New Work!

Hey everybody!

I decided to finally take some pics of my newest bead work.  I wanted to share with all of you! Hope you like them.
This is a Tubular RAW, Right Angle Weave Bracelet that I made with crystals & a magnetic clasp.

This is a wide RAW bracelet with blue pearl beads.

This is a Bracelet I designed myself, it is black 4mm cube beads with size 15/0 seed beads & a magnetic clasp

This is my Flight Bracelet, in May I went to California & did this on the plane, the colors aren't that attractive together but it kept me busy & made the long flights & stopovers bearable!

This is a bracelet that I made with Jasper tube beads & Garnet round beads.  I really like this one. 

Here is a green crystal ball bracelet, every section is crystal bicones beaded into balls & made into a bracelet, along with a Swarovski (sp) Crystal toggle clasp.

This is a Huicicol Totem bracelet.  I got the patter off the web, sadly I dont remember the designers name.  If you know it let me know so I can add it here!  Thanks

This is from one of my favorite designers, Debbie Von Tonder to go to her Etsy shop click on the pattern name & check out her wonderful designs.  This one is called Kelly & the one below it is called White Tiger

This is a neat bracelet that I made using beads that I have had for 27 years!!! I finally decided to use them LOL.  
 This last one is a tubular peyote bead mix of blue & yellow, 2 of my favorite colors!! 

Thanks for looking at my bracelets!  If you couldn't tell, I really love bracelets!! Let me know what you think, thanks guys!!

Design love

Hiya everyone!

I was thinking in the shower tonite (I think alot in the shower LOL) about design & the beauty of it.   Also, how I am kinda not like other women in what I find harmonious design-wise.  I have never been a flowers & pink kinda female.  That shows in my design style, for sure! I love linear, geometric designs.  I also find beauty in the design of some of the weirdest things.  Like I can look at a building & just love the lines, same with a light fixture!!  LOL.  I know, Flowers are beautiful, but lines are what turn my design button on!  LOL  I remembered that when I was a kid in 5th grade i got an A on an art project that i did.  It was all about lines.  So even back then I was seeking the geometric designs in things.  I designed my art project again, this time on the computer, cuz I dont have any crayons.  (Yea that is my lazy excuse ;) )  I hope you like it.  It is funny the design brings me peace & calm.  I just love those lines!!!!

Here I Go!!!!!

Ok, Ok, Ok....  I finally decided to make a blog!!  I feel like this is gonna be a double edge sword!!!  I wonder, does everyone who start a blog feel like they are already behind the times cuz you didn't start one earlier?  Anyways, here I go, dipping my feet into the blog water.  I want to be able to show off my bead work, and the bead work of other fantastic & talented people,  and prolly some of the work of my kids. If they let me, LOL. I cant wait to start.  

Maybe I'll start tomorrow.......
