Can't stay away from the wire!

Yeah, so when I run out I'ma gonna cry! I'm addicted...I admit it. I'd say somebody help me, but yeah I like this addiction, and I'm not hurting anyone! (Except for me when my pliers slip and I pinch myself with them...)

New Sterling Bangle!

Well, been meaning to make another sterling bangle for a while, but I really hated to use my last bit of sterling 14 gauge wire-now it's all gone! /pout
Ah well, I had to use it sometime, and I had promised Lolly (from the jewelry making forum) that my next one was going to be this one's in tribute to Lolly! :)

My son talks with his hands

My son talks with his hands, and I find it just as adorable now that he's 16 as I did when he was 2.
In this picture he's explaining to me about one of the rides he went on at Bush Garden's this weekend. He had to tell me all about every ride he went on-complete with hand gestures! :)

Nothing new but I did create a treasury

I've created nothing new in a few days (due to a bad anaphalytic reaction this weekend making me feel like crap for 5 days or so after). But I did create this lovely treasury-take a look please!

Hooked on Wire

Yeah, well...I've think I'm addicted to working with sterling it time to start a 10 program? (or is it 12-hmm...I might need at least 12 steps)

Soldalite Cuff or I did wind up making something today

Well, I did finally wind up making something today-a 3 strand sodalite cuff-made on memory wire! My friends on the jewelry making forum have been asking me when I was going to make another memory wire cuff because my other one sold...back before Christmas. But I remember why it took me so long to make another now-it's such a pain in the arse! LOL! ah well, it'll prolly be a long time before I make another.


Well, nothing new for a few days, but I did join twitter-and it's so addictive! So, if you're on twitter and want to follow me I'm
Hopefully by tonight I'll have something new to post!

Turquoise and Butteryfly

I added this to my shop yesterday...lovely val verde turquoise necklace-24 inches long with this show stopping resin butterfly pendant floating from the bottom. The pendant is 2.25 inches wide by 2 inches long-it's glorious!

On a personal note, car still isn't working so the job hunt is on hold until I can get the car fixed...hard to find a job I can walk to when I live over 10 miles from the nearest town...

In the meantime, I'm having fun making jewelry-promised myself I would try to add at least one new item to my etsy shop a day...

My 16 year old boy was home sick all week last week...took him to the doctor and she said sinus infection. But even on antibiotics he was having chills and fever all week. He might of had a sinus infection, but I think he also had something else with it. He went back to school yesterday-and I miss him. But, I'm glad he's better!
Oh yeah I have a lovely treasury with bbest members going on right now-please show it some luvin'!

New Sterling Wire Wrapped Bangle

I've made a lot of these bangles in copper, but finally tackled one in sterling today. I love this gorgeous focal bead (made by a SRA from the US), isn't it gorgeous?

For the bangle, I handwrapped 20 gauge wire around a 14 gauge core. I love that this style bangle is adjustable.

One day at a time...

Hey y'all,

I've decided since I'm currently well in search of gainful employment shall we say...that I will try to start adding one item a day to my etsy shop. That means getting offa my butt and making one item a day, or more-I can always add things to the Arts of the Albemarle gallery in downtown Elizabeth City too! I've sold several pieces in there recently. :) Anyway, here's my latest-in my favorite color!
