I'm scootin' off to SUNY Oswego today to see my little sister at college. Her 19th birthday is next weekend but since she has a pretty busy schedule that weekend, I decided to go up and celebrate a week early! We'll probably hang out, maybe do a little shopping, go out to lunch, do some sort of girly thing. Too bad there aren't any bead shops in Oswego, that'd be perfect.
I did make her a super special something, jewelry related. But didn't take any photos of it before I boxed it up with a bow.
I don't have much to show you today. Most of what I did yesterday, sold quickly from the shop. The pretty Flower Discus earrings are still sitting in the shop though. Hmmm. Isn't that always the way? You create something that you think is really super great, and then come to find out, not everyone else thinks it's super great?
Well I'll give you a sneak peak of something instead. Here is a little something I like to call The Convertible. I created this piece yesterday and it won't be going into the shop just yet. Some publication will be gettin' their hands on this baby, if I'm lucky. It's a necklace. NO, it's a BRACELET!! But the coolest part of this piece is the beads. Christine Damm of StoriesTheyTell created these polymer clay beads. She sent me several sets last week. They are really super cool and unique and the colors are perfect for Fall which is what publications are looking for these days. Thanks Christine, for making my designs so easy! These beads, called Bumble Beads resemble little stripy dotty bumble bees. I love the color palette. They have some metallic highlights- in a beautiful copper color that pairs perfectly with the copper color Polester Chain.
