Flight Club

I have a silver feather necklace I made a couple of years ago (I lengthened it and added some silver beads since the version in the link), that I just love. It is on a long chain and it just goes with just about every outfit. It is shiny though, and every now and then I wear something that is a little more "dressed down" or earthy and it doesn't quite work- but more due to the finish than the style. So... what's a girl to do? Make another version of course!

This time in antiqued brass:

Mossy Pebbles

This necklace was something I wanted to make for a while. I love green and copper, so I wore this necklace proudly today. It was exceptionally easy to wear!

Glitter and Smoke

Black is my neutral. I wear black or gray just about every day at work. Yes, I do use a pop of color so I don't look like I am attending a funeral every day. I needed a new go-to neutral necklace for work. I think I made it- it is a mix of smokey gray, black and metallic silver Czech glass faceted beads all on silver chain. Perfect for adding a little sparkle to the daily uniform!

She Doesn't Know It

She doesn't know it, but my sister is getting a necklace. What's the occasion? None. Why? Because I looooove her. Hee hee...

I have to go to the dentist to have a wisdom tooth pulled tomorrow. This is my first extraction, so I am a little nervous. Say hello to Mr. Sad Tooth who represents my impending DOOOOOOM.

Feeling Bubbly

Bubbles, bubbles, everywhere. Taking away every care. Pop and fizzle, swirl around. Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles abound.

Dreamy Purple

I decided to make something this weekend. I didn't really have a plan going in other than that some "thing" should be a necklace. The result is this long necklace with dreamy, soft purple faceted beads. It is approximately 36 inches long landing at about mid-torso for most. It is a little heavier than most of my necklaces to date, but I like the extra heft to it.

Happy Monday!

I am feeling like I am in a bit of a creative rut. I have more supplies and ideas than I could go through in a year's time- yet... I can't seem to make much these days. Yes, having a 13-month-old is a big contributing factor. However, I do find time to answer e-mails for the day job or watch TV after he goes to bed. Before he came, I would work while I watched TV. I don't seem to have any issue with motivating others or coming up with ideas for them. Am I more tired? Less motivated? Who knows.

I really am trying to pry my backside out of this well-formed rut and get the creative juices flowing again. I am not going to say what I'll do or make any big announcement to do more (mostly because I don't have much faith in my current rut-removal capabilites). For now, I'll just say I'm going to try to find my pry bar and do my best to keep this thing going.
