Been a Busy Bee

I've got shows coming up this weekend and next, and we're still in the process of moving. Ugh! So I've been working around the clock. There's still so much to get done, though.

Some projects are finished now. You'll recognize bits of these from my Bead Table Wednesday post a couple of weeks ago.


 I don't usually go in for the New Age stuff too often, but once in a while a piece just comes together so beautifully, you can't ignore the urge to make that vision a reality. And this piece came together like a dream.


And sometimes a piece comes together like a pain in the (*&)()^%$&%$##@#.


I had to remake that bracelet six times before it sat right on the wrist, and it still has a couple of issues. It's a commissioned piece, so there's not much I can do in terms of tweaking the design or choosing the materials. It was a necklace a friend wanted me to change into a bracelet. All I can say is that it wasn't too pleased about being taken apart and reformed, that's for sure.

Anyway, since I got off my lazy butt to actually do pictures and such, I'll have some more stuff to share this week. What have you all been up to? What are your plans and goals for the next five days?

I hope you all had a great weekend. :)

Jacinta,
Love everything even that pain in the butt bracelet, I'm sure the person that commissioned the piece will be too. Great work good luck on your sales. I'm still trying to make up my mind as the stitch I will be doing for my personnal challenge this month. I guess I need to make up my mind, I'm leaning real hard to RAW!
