I’m Back……..

Things have been busy in the Gonzalez household so I have neglected my blog a little….

Today I would love to introduce you to a wonderful glass bead maker I have found….The other day I was browsing Etsy looking for some new and beautiful beads to make earrings with and I came across a wonderful bead maker from Pennsylvania named Catherine Steele her Etsy shop is http://www.artwithheart.etsy.com

I bought 2 pairs of her awesome sea shell beads and made earrings with them.

I like these Aqua ones I added some moonstone beads and some pearls and crystals to finish them off.

I LOVE these purple ones I put them on rose gold ear wires made by my friend Moe added some chalcedony and moonstone beads to make these beautiful earrings.

 

So if you are looking for some beautiful well made glass beads I highly recommend her shop.

Great way to use single beads

I always have a few awesome beads left after making a project that are to pretty to not be used.  I think making wire wrapped rings is a good way to use my orphan beads.

Today I was playing in my bead stash and practicing and made these 2 rings..I like the look of the flower one and I think with some tweaking I would like the bold black one a little better.

I like the flower one so much I think I’ll make one in my size.

Now I think I’ll go ferret around in my Cabochon stash and see what kind of trouble I can get into.  I am so glad I am feeling a little better and my creativity is starting to kick back in.
