|Pretty pink opaline glass beads and seed beads|
|I love these bunches of grapes and brass leaves|
I plan to pair these glass grapes with Lucite grape leaves. They will look lovely, I think. :3 And those brass leaves, just gorgeous.
|Pretty Czech glass flowers|
Ignore my poor choice of backgrounds on this one. XD Patty found these adorable violets and we both fell in love with them. I also like the pink flowers (pink again, what the freak?!?!) because they are center drilled. You don't see that a whole lot.
|These little acorns are darling!|
Sugarbeads also carries my favorite enameled copper wire, so I stocked up on that, too. So far I've already started a pair of earrings with those pink opaline glass beads and some antiqued brass filigree. They are so lovely and remind me of vintage turn-of-the-20th-century jewelry.
Unfortunately, due to the craziness and misfortune going on here, I am going to go dark for a little while longer. It would be nice if I could get blogging again next week; we'll see. I know I just got back, but some more misfortune has visited us and I need to deal with that and come back refreshed. I haven't been able to make any jewelry, aside from the above-mentioned earrings---even those are unfinished---so there's not really a whole lot to update with. I'm hoping things are going to start improving. Fingers crossed! I will miss you all again. :( I may still read your blogs and comment, I just won't be updating mine until further notice. Again, very sorry. <3
