Tuesday Randoms

[[[ If you're looking for the Bead Soup blog post, it's HERE. :) ]]]

What I think of while I'm wire wrapping:
  • Wow. All these songs sound new. Probably because I usually listen to audio books while I'm working.
  • I think I need a new audio book. Game of Thrones has become a bit depressing and the narrator leaves something to be desired.
  • Hm. I do that a lot. I'll stop reading/listening to a book before it's over. Well, at least I go back to it eventually.
  • Wow, there's a lot of rap songs on this playlist. 
  • Oh, that's right. I tried to be "gangsta" in high school.
  • I wonder if my brother was embarrassed by me when I was in high school.
  • I wonder how my brother and his fambam are. They're like my favorite people.
  • Really should go look for Legos to turn into jewelry for my brother's girlfriend.
  • I wonder if I could make some pyrex jewelry too (she like's pyrex).
I love how my mind wanders when I'm creating. I mean, is that bad? I know some people say that you should focus but some things like wire wrapping... c'mon. Oh it's beautiful, but I can't just count wraps and beads the whole time, can I?

It was unbelievably warm the other day. Like "OH! I can wear my favorite sleeveless dress today!" warm. And my fingers came up with these earrings, now in the shop here. Minty green and tangerine flowers. I bought those beads because they looked like margarita green but are pretty transparent now that I've wrapped them up in shiny copper.

I liked this design so much I made another pair of earrings:

But those are mine. ALL MINE! I'm trying to be more daring with the jewelry I wear myself (inspired by the lovely Shannon). I usually just wear silver studs and a few wrap bracelets but I think these will make a regular appearance on my lobes. Even made a matching necklace... which I forgot to take a picture of. Soon, I'll be brave enough to show my mug on my own blog. Booyah.

I tweaked the design a bit with the second pair of earrings. I think if I make these again, I'll make them just like that. I love the fire polish finish on the Czech glass too. Happiness all around.

Remember my bead soup bracelet? I found some pretty zebra jasper to make more bracelets to sell.

I love the variation in the stone. Some have purple tones. Some are all brown and orange. Some are black and grey! And they were on clearance at Michaels. SCORE!

My latest bead store haul. And yes, I was at Corner Bakery... again... I practically live there. But I think the details on that topic deserves it's own blog post.

Can you tell I LOVE Czech glass? Druk beads. Fire polish. Crystal. Sigh. All kinds.

I've already played with those seed beads.

I'm thinking necklaces. Add a simple chain maybe? Break up the chain with some crystal? I dunno yet. But I'm having fun making the bows.

So, that's my random Tuesday post. Check out the shop where my new earrings are sitting, waiting for a new home. I've marked down some destash mags and added some UK issues. Woot? WOOT!

  1. I love the earrings their so pretty I can see why you kept the purple ones :). I love how you've photographed them I really have trouble with that. I think thats because I can never wait till its daylight to go outside and take pictures and my indoor lighting is terrible. I just get so excited to share new pieces I have to do it right when I finish which is normally in the middle of the night lol. I love Czech glass too sometimes I think I could love it more than Swarovski :). Have fun with your new beads. Love the bows too by the way.

    Happy Beading,
