Sneak Peek – Latest Earring Creations for Fall (and late summer too)

Hi y’all!  On this 108 degree day in the Southland in a week that has seen a murderous 113 (and more they say), my thoughts are turning to Autumn.  And in addition to promises of cooler breezes I visualized the beautiful color scape that Nature brings to us in the fall.

I took some time out from stitching to design some new earrings and just started listing them on Etsy.  So you get to see most of them before everybody else!

Monday is try something new day – in this case a soldering iron

Heya blogees, I’m about to open the package and get out my new soldering iron.  These here are just a bit of delaying tactics in case you didn’t realize.  I’ve never used one of these contraptions but have been busily scouring the google and the youtube 🙂  to do my research.

All that I want to do is to solder a few jump rings.  I usually don’t have a problem getting them to stay put (and the earring or whatever to stay together) but every once in awhile there’s a wayward badass among ’em.

So, wish me luck and I’ll let you know how my experiments worked (or not as the case may be, lol)

Have a wonderful week y’all!

Back to Beads

We just got back from a few days in San Francisco and I’m loving being back in the “studio”.  Most of all I love playing with fabric, fibers, paint and so on but for the past couple of days I’ve turned my attention to BEADS!!!  My inventory of hand crafted earrings needs replenishing (yes!) and I’m just in the mood to design away!   I made about a dozen over the last couple of evenings and as soon as I’ve finished taking all the pictures I’ll have them posted on Etsy and now on Bonanza too (I’ll post the link as soon as the inventory is in place.)

In the meantime here’s a preview for you.  Let me know if anything in particular strikes your fancy.
