Where Does the Time Go?

Wow -- here it is the end of July -- months since my last post. Life has been a whirlwind -- jewelry, jewelry, moving, working, jewelry, jewelry, working. Well, you get the picture. I have been having so much fun though. If you haven't read about it at my Web site -- Beatrix, a new little four-legged creature came into my life when I least expected it. What a precious spirit, that one. And, what a joy.

On the jewelry side of things -- I have been busy creating pretty baubles for some special people in my life. La's bracelet is shown here -- blacks and browns on gold. Maybe we should call it the Oh-la-la bracelet. It made it's debut at the anniversary fete for her parents -- 60 years I do believe. Amazing. With some of the leftover beads, I created the lariat for La's daughter, Sunshine -- my terrific niece. One major difference -- "I hate gold, thank you very much" meant that the beads had to work with silver -- and so they do.

Frantically trying to design a necklace and earrings for a friend to wear at her wedding and then doing the bridesmaids and maid of honor necklaces and earrings. I am having so much fun with it all. It's a bit nerve wracking, however, because it is such a special day, I want to be sure that my jewelry does the bride and her girls justice. The dresses are just lovely -- so I am working to design pieces that work with, don't overpower, but enhance the overall look. Once all is said and done, I'll post the pix here.

That's it for now -- glad the hot weather is behind us -- at least I hope. Moving in a few weeks, so will be out of touch for a few days while that changeover takes place. There are lots of new things for sale on my site, so check it out when you have some time to browse. I add things a couple times a week, so check back frequently. And, if you have done so already, add your name to my e-mail list from my home page.
