Kavod...The Hebrew word for GLORY also means HEAVY or honored.
this is my new bracelet which I was going to call heavy metal, because the glass looks like metal and it's Big and chunky and heavy, but then I heard (from my Pastor) that the word Glory in Hebrew, means heavy, so it's his fault if I'm wrong!

Bangles and Brew

Something new!! ...well...kind of...
Home parties! WAIT!! don't go away yet...
I know you think you know, but this one is different!

You and your guests get to make a bracelet kind of like the one pictured, except no two will ever be exactly alike, because your using original handmade lampwork beads as part of the bracelet you'll make.
Along with the lampwork glass beads you'll get fresh water pearls, swarovski crystals and seed beads.
No special skills required, this isn't a class.
It's just a fun night or morning out with your friends and in the end you'll have a one of a kind work of art!

Book your GNO now!! or GBO (girls breakfast out)

For more info and email go to...Bangles and Brew blog Better pictures and info. soon!

getting back to basics...

I love the look of this combination.

Fresh water pearls, garnets and only one lampwork bead. I call it my beer bottle beach glass heart bead. Laura because she's such a good girl calls it rootbeer bottle beach glass...okay... that works too.

It's almost time to give something away...

in the shape of a heart

since I don't have the time to go look for beach glass, I thought i'd make my own.

random acts of Anklets

This one is my new favorite. (the black one)

I wear an anklet almost year round and I rarely take them off.
I swim with them, shower and sleep with them.

oh, what a beautiful day...

I made beads in the morning then sat in the backyard and made this bracelet in the afternoon.

when I was a little girl I used to go to the dime store not far from my house and I would look at all the stuff.

Makeup, brooches, embroidered hankies, perfume, toys, candy...

I remember there were 2 brooches I was particularly interested in. One was a swan with rhinestones on the body and the other was this orange dude.

I remember going back again and again until I had enough money to buy one and the decision was a tough one.

I think I made the right decision.

This one definitely fits my personality the best.

I can't believe I still have this funny little dude!

Okay, so, I finally got my Etsy shop rolling (kind of) My friends keep encouraging me to get going and I appreciate it.

I'm just a butt dragger at heart!

Anyhow, now that I have a few things in my shop I want to show off the newest beach 'treasure' bracelet I just finished for a gal in Colorado and it'll be in the mail by Thursday.

I gotta make myself one of these! actually, I had one and I sold it off my wrist!

My friend Laura has one of these and every time she wears it she sells one! Yay Laura! I love it when that happens!!

naked lady continued...

I just can't let it go...

I've remade the naked lady bead so that the silver head pin doesn't come out of her bottom.

I think it's a little nicer, not that I meant anything by the previous beads, they just needed a little 'adjusting'.

Okay, okay, so this might be easier on the eyes then the last post !

evolution of...

The Girls

Okay, so I've been working on 'The Girls' and this is what I've come up with so far.

So what do you think?...

Body Bead.. It's a first. (for me) My niece Angie, is a OC roller (Derby) girl and they're having a fund raiser for breast cancer in April. I haven't commited yet, I don't know if I can duplicate this body ( boobie) bead... we'll see.
Oh! and if you need to brush up on your breast exam skills this is a pretty entertaining little video on the basic how to. none like I've ever seen before and worth the time.

I gotta do something new...
