Back to beadin' !
I've been going through beading ufos---I seem to have a lot of those ;>) and I found one that I really enjoyed working on and wondered what I didn't finish it. hmmmm. Well, I finished it and I think it turned out so pretty---I listed it last night and I'm posting it here. As I worked on finishing it, I remembered why I began it in the first place.
Our younger daughter came up with the idea and the colors, and I think I must have put it aside because I didn't want to dig around in my stash and find more beads for it----but, when looking at it again, I decided it was worth it to go through the stash and finish it. I like the way it turned out, and I hope someone else does---and buys it!
Speaking of buying..........last Saturday, one of my friends from cccoe, OAS, ( http://oceanavesilks.etsy.com ) took my goodies to a Home Show she was attending and she sold over $300 of my beadwoven treasures~ I'm still floating.....so exciting for me, because I sat on those on etsy for almost a year now....which makes me think that they really do need to be seen in person and tried on, etc.
AnywayS---on Sunday, I took some of my well-gotten gains and went to the Bead and Gem Show at the Orange Cty Fairgrounds~ I was a good girl, and didn't buy too much-although it was difficult~ I bought findings and chains and clasps and such--and still managed to spend all I took with me~
It's almost noon here and I haven't gotten anything done that I've got to do today, before going to twin-sit--so I gotta get on the move.
Please check out the picture of my last listing AND a bracelet--steampunk style---that I finished yesterday and will be listing this week--please tell me what you think---does it need more goodies on it?
