Current Work

I am happy to say that my good friend's sister commissioned a couple of woven beaded jewelry pieces from me over the holiday. She commissioned a piece from me last summer and liked it so much that she wanted a couple more pieces!

I showed her a lot of beads before she decided on the spiral necklace I had just decided to wear that day - pictured here (my necklace (not for sale) has a cool focal bead by Aardvark Art Glass) and a right angle weave crystal cube. I owned that focal bead for two years before I knew what I wanted to do with it.

She said that she's buying my creativity. What a compliment! Said she couldn't put two beads together to save her life. I told her that the spiral wouldn't cost much in materials, but would be labor intensive. I timed myself the next day and came up with a price that was okay with her (and me.) She likes my jewelry because it's not just beads strung on a string and because it's handmade.

I' like to finish those before I begin work on my July Beaded Journal Page piece. I'm also working on a spiral necklace just for me. Grey beads and labradorite (one of my favorite stones - love the flash!)

It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blog is also so cool! Don't think for a minute that my invitation is spam and I'm a spammer. I'm only searching for a public that may like or love what I write.

Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together by visiting and loving one another.

You must not feel obliged to come and visit me. An invitation is not an intimation. Also know that if you click on one of my ads I'm promised to earn 8 cents for that: I would feel happy if you did click it, but once again you're totaly free to do what ever you want. That's the whole beauty of it all.

I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle but as a challenge (though you can use the translater BabelFish at the bottom of my page!) and think for a minute if I and the rest of the world are not expecting something like a broad cumplicity. Remenber that pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!
