Joshua Tree Inspiration

Matches up well with this macrame necklace I knotted. I’m liking this new-to-me design for the necklace. Enjoy … Continue reading »

Bead Hoarders Blog Hop

I do admit that I hoard beads. Actually, not so much on the beads, but more so with pendants and charms. As a lampwork glass worker, I can always make beads, but ceramic pendants are a different story. Love these moon faces by Birgitta Lejonklou. Of course Buddha’s are another favorite. And, micro macrame necklaces … Continue reading »

Memories and Thanks Blog Hop 2013

The past year has been filled with many personal and professional challenges. Some tragic circumstances ( a suicide death of a remarkable friend and a manslaughter death of a co-worker.) To say that it was a tough year would be an understatement. I’ve learned over the years to just do my best to stay in … Continue reading »
