I have just been in the biggest creative rut ever, honesty I really haven't felt like designing anything lately. For the past few weeks, when I sit at my bead table I just stare at all my pretty beads, not knowing how I want to combine them, or what I want to make, a necklace or a bracelet.
Meanwhile, I am losing other skills by not using them, even as simple as wire wrapping. Although I know that will come back to me quickly, its till a waste of some wire.
So, yesterday, I decided I needed to do something! So I sat for a moment, then grabbed my container of Czech Glass Beads, tossed them all on the table, and started gathering beads I thought would look good together combined. This is what I came up with:
Czech Glass and Freshwater Pearl Bracelet in Copper

At first, I wasn't quite sure if I should list it on Etsy. I mean, its a pretty simplistic bracelet, very light in detail. But after posting pictures on my FB Fan Page, and the comments I received, I changed my mind. And even though it is simplistic, this bracelet is still very gorgeous. The White Freshwater Pearls add an undeniable elegance to the Czech Glass Beads, and Copper Spacers. So, ultimately, I am pleased with it.

I'd like to say that I will be creating more this weekend, but it is busy already. My husband needs work Shoes, and we are taking my son, Marty, clothes shopping to the Mall for School again. Seems like that's all I have been doing lately, running around as money becomes available, to purchase more and more for him. We should be done this week, thank God.

So, what have you been up too? I'd like to know!


  1. like you, I've been trying to find time to create, but with 3 kids in 3 different schools, I feel like I've been chasing my tail, and losing. hahaha. I've gotten a little dry on my beads too, but I've been getting a hankering to get out my paints and brushes instead. we shall see. Love you girly!
