I have been busy making earrings for the upcoming Artisan's Show in Edmonds next month, and slowing working on the massive beaded necklace project. I am over half done with it, adding a few beads a day. I remember a friend once told me that shovel by shovel full, she could move a mountain. This is the friend who is gluing seed beads to a door ( I blogged about her in August) so she knows about patience. Me, I am not so patient ....
Most of the earrings I have been making are not polymer. I am trying to use up some of my stash in the hope that I can make more space for working with metal clay. I have the kiln I won just sitting there, waiting for me, calling to me .... and I have no space to work in. Mean hubbie won't let me expand outside my studio .... he actually gets upset when he wants to come to bed and finds me in it surrounded by my beads and findings, frantically trying to get get in "just one more pair, dear" before lights out. Imagine the nerve of him! Womans' gotta create and I NEED space....lots and lots of space ..... must have more rooooommmm
I wanted to show a few of my latest.
Remember a while back when Artybecca (Rebecca Watkins in real life) posted a tut on flickr and actually caused me to SAND my beads.... well, I finally got around to making them into Earrings. When I first posted my beads on Flickr, Rebecca actually commented that they reminded her of bongo drums (hence the names I have given the earrings).

And finally, just in time for Halloween....
