New Stuff

I had to show off a piece I just finished....It is called I've Got My Eye On You!  It is a cuff bracelet with a recycled image of an eye bead and seed beads embedded in resin.  It is for sale for $ size fits most it is adjustable.  You can contact me at for purchasing information

Here are two more of my recent creations

This one is called Heart Works.  A resin pendant created with recycled magazine images and watch parts.  I then used aluminum wire to make the center piece and wrapped it with fiber, wire and beads.

 No, your eyes are not deceiving you...this is made from hex nuts.  I ran across a tutorial on how to make this.  I used satin cord and nuts from the hardware store.  I call it Ahh Nuts! 
These are both for sale, contact me for purchasing information.

I am always on the lookout for bead storage.  My biggest problem is that while I could have the basement family room all to myself, could kick my family out of the home office, the space I really like to work in is in the great room of my house.  Lots of great natural light and I like to be in the room with my family as much as possible.  We all run in different directions all the time and it is nice to spend whatever time we have together.  Up until now I  take over half of the dining table with my stuff when I am getting ready for a show and have various, carts, containers, bins etc everywhere.

So the other night I am surfing the web and come across this site The Original Scrap Box.

Now I am not a scrap book person, all my photos are digital these days.  But for BEADS!!!! this would be the most fantastic cabinet ever.  All that storage for all my stuff.  Right now I take over half of the dining table and have bins and containers and plastic carts all over the place.  When company is coming I have to find a place to hide it all.  With this, all I would do is put things in their bins and close the doors.

Now, it isn't inexpensive.  It runs a $1295 to $1495.  I found it on Amazon with free shipping which is a great savings as it is shipped freight.  We have to put part of it together and from the reviews I am reading it takes about 4 hours (they include a how to DVD).  My wonderful husband says just order it, but to me it is a major purchase so I have to meditate on it and save some money up for it.

When ....yes I said when....I get it I'll let you all know how much I love it and show you the full and finished cabinet.

Happy Crafting!
