beads obsessed

Hi everyone, thanks for all of the insightful facebook comments! I enjoyed reading everyone's opinions on the subject. Thought I should put up a few pics of some work, just to prove I do more than sit and blog all day :)
I have been obsessing with jewelry this past week. I've stacked enough beads to make about 50 necklaces, maybe more. This one above was made with some discarded earrings from Wesley's days of dragon love.
Most of them remind me of little japanese lanterns or cairns. I had to come inside and work for awhile, it's been so wet, I can't get anything to dry. While I wait for the slabs to firm up and wheel thrown things to dry for trimming, I am passing the time making necklaces.

These will be fairly inexpensive and they are a nice item to have for Festifall and for the studio tour. I'm not making all of the small things I made last year for the cheap asses, but these are fun and I can sell them cheaply enough to not piss me off. They probably won't make it into any galleries, but I like them. I have some really cool barns getting ready for the fire, pics of those next week!

i left a comment about facebook on your last post and blogosphere must have eaten up! it was something to the tune of i am losing interest in it.

Hi MIchele, that's what happened to me. I tried doing facebook, but I would forget to check on it, or I would get these dull comments, so I got bored. I don't seem to feel that way with my blog and I never get dull comments! Let's hope these necklaces sell, I have made a shite load of them!
