I didn't sleep well last night. Even with the new feather bed that we put on the bed, the strong winds all night kept me awake and paranoid about many things....what if the roof rips off, what if it rips the shingles off, what if one of the three enormous trees outside my window, come down on top of us. Every time I would doze off, the wind would pick up and I would immediately become scared to the point of serious hot sweats! I swear we now live in the windiest area! This isn't the first time we've had wind like this. And maybe it's just pronounced because it's whistling through these enormous tree branches outside my window, but GEEZ!? Can't I get ONE decent night of sleep in this house? I contemplated beading several times throughout the night, but was too lazy to get up.
The weekend has proved to be a successful one. The mojo is back. Here's some stuff!
I was brave enough to use some Green Girl Studios pewter rings I've had for some time, and another beloved Earthenwood Studio
This necklace ended up being longer than I anticipated but I think the length is kind of cool. It's probably 20 inches long. I used one of Melanie's new Steampunk inspired gear connectors, an antique key I bought last weekend at a local antique mall, a carved bone round from my local bead shop a square wood tab bead, Vintaj Bead Co. etched chain and swirly clasp, and seed beads in matte olive, matte brown, and grey.
These awesome floral beads were made by Jess of BeadyMonkey.
I paired them with some cool gunmetal colored chain, another antique key, faceted amazonite and wood tabs.
