Today was a lazy Sunday...I spent the whole day at home. I finally had the time to organize the chaos of my bead stash with the new bead containers I got. I'm happy to say that all my beads are now organized and easy to find. I used all but twelve containers - did I mention that I started with 318 containers? Add that to the seventy-two that I had filled two weeks ago...well that's a lot of freakin' beads. I'd better get crackin' on making some pieces! It did make for a nice relaxing lazy day (that didn't take too much thinking) and I couldn't be more pleased that I can finally find everything.
On a good note - I spent Saturday at my friend's daughter's engagement party. It was a great time and the weather was beautiful, a little on the cool side but warm in the sunshine. I was honored to have been asked to make my Japanese Kumihimo braided bracelets, stamped with hearts for her bridesmaid gifts. They all got these bracelets made in their favorite color. I made them in purple, blue, pink and green like this one:
With my computer being only operable in "safe mode" for a week, I haven't been able to upload and edit pics of the pieces that I made last weekend. I'm pleased that my computer is up and running again. So I spent some time today editing photos. Here's a sneak peek:
These beads remind me of wagon wheels, in gorgeous hues of gold and brown. I paired them with some copper moon charms that I purchased last weekend at the bead show.
I always need to find a use for leftover scraps of copper sheet. These rectangles were created from the edges of copper sheet that I had etched with a stamped design. I then paired them with iridescent apple green flower beads, lime green glass saucers and torch balled (and flattened) wire wrapping.
I have a few more pieces that I need to edit, but going to wait until tomorrow. It's time to wind down, relax (haven't I been doing that all day??) and get ready for tomorrow. Hoping to get some pictures this week of the gorgeous fall foliage. I hope you all had a great weekend and a great week to come!
Live. Laugh. Love.
