So what do you wanna talk about?

Ok so here I am.  What now?

I have wanted to do a blog for a long time and enjoy reading the meanderings of others.  It takes a lot of energy and time to have a sucessful blog and I am not sure I am up to the challenge.

A little about me first - I love beads, I love my family, I love my friends, I love my boyfriend - not necessarily in that order.  I have a full time day job which frankly just gets in the way of my beading addiction but is essential to fund same.  Yes I play the lottery!

Now for the good stuff - my latest make:

I have called this 'Sun Kissed'.  I made the focal out of polymer clay and then put gold leaf on it (what a drama - will do a post about gold leaf).  It has a slightly distressed look to it which gives it some character.  The focal is beaded using metallic seed beads in golden hues.  I made the chain using some tigers eye beads that I had in my stash.  Its quite long - about 24 inches so great if you have a cleavage.  I have a few more of these focals in various sizes so may make a choker length piece.  What do you think?


  1. It's a lovely piece! Good luck with the blog!

  2. Good to see you blogging, by the way I am your first follower

  3. Wonderful new piece, and really neat blog:))) Will follow and support you. You'll see blogging can be fun and it doesn't have to be too time consuming either.
    I can't wait to hear more about the gold leaf. I never used it for polymer clay cabs.

  4. Thanks for the support guys!

  5. You have a great looking blog! I would like to hear about your experience with gold leaf.
