After finishing my BSBP pieces I hit the “wall”. You know, that one where you see all of the projects you have lined up in your craft area, and you know there’s a ton of stuff you could be doing right now, but the inspiration just isn’t there. It lasted a few weeks, longer then I would have liked, but I have gotten a few pieces done since then. One of them sold, which I was extremely happy with (because it helped me buy more beads! lol) Now my vacation has started and it seems like there is an endless list of what I could be doing right now:
-ripping up carpet
-moving my bead/craft room to a bigger room
-working on pieces
-setting up photo area/taking pictures so that I can list on Etsy
-cleaning/putting away clothes (I think 5 weeks is the limit for not putting away clothes)
-just plain doing nothing!
So far I’ve gone grocery shopping, cleaned the litter boxes and semi-prepped dinner for tonight. The hubby is off doing a biker weekend with his church, so it’s just me and the doggies home.
Here’s a few things I’ve finished in the past few weeks:
First soutache work – just some simple earrings. These are SOLD
Second pair of soutache earrings (the ruby 6/0 seed beads are from my BSBP partner Lisa Suver)
Bobbin Earrings – made to look like the delicas are thread
Bobbin Necklace. This lampwork bead was bought from Laura Arns of Arson Studios. The “milky” wire wrapped beads were originally part of a necklace from years ago, but it became part of my “tearapart” session a few months ago. I think they work really well with this piece. This is SOLD.
I’m also working on a beehive inspired piece from one of the stones/faces I bought from Kristie Brigham of Sculpted Windows. So far I have a bee, a few flowers and some honeycomb. I’ve literally run out of bead buddies (I have 2 and use each 1/2 independently), plus I’m also working on a blog hop piece for Gemstone and Metal Blog Hop that will be on July 19th.Here’s a sneak peak of what I got (excuse the horrible pictures): this is Sodalite& Sterling Silver
Come back in a few days and hopefully I’ll have some pieces listed in Etsy!
