Home Sick

Summer colds are the worst! I've had a cough for 4 days, and now yesterday started the stuffy nose business. Anyway, I'm home sick today. I'm hoping I'll feel better by 6:30 so I can still go to my first web design class that starts today! We had a small gathering of friends for dinner last night, so I'm afraid I don't have a lot of jewelry to show you. My initial plan was, to spend the weekend making as much as possible so that I would consistently be able to list new things in the shop all week due to my class being 2 nights a week for 5 weeks. This will slow down the production of jewelry, I'm afraid. But I do have quite a bit in the shop already so I'll just work with what I've got, I guess. I did make some earrings yesterday that were inspired by 2 things. This beautiful Monet Waterlilies painting, and this bracelet from Beakee on Etsy.













I had gotten these cool disc shaped turquoise beads from Heather Wynn. I wasn't sure how to use them, til I saw the bracelet! They look like little lily pads. Love it!

  2. Hi Lorelei
    I have been reading your blog for a while now. LOVE IT
    I am learning so I would love the books. Let me pay though. I live in Oklahoma and cant find fun beaders like you to help me. I do the soldered glass with lots of bling. I am very drawn to your designs too. I am also a huge fan of the Office.
    Thanks
    Kris

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
