I’ve been playing with beads again.  I’ve gotten it in my head that pendants that can easily slip onto chains would be fun to make and very versatile.   Here are a few I’ve recently made.

Made with (L-R):  turquoise, tiger’s eye, swarovski crystal, and howlite.


Wood as art.

Walnut beads.

For a week or two near the end of every year the shop outback becomes Santa’s Workshop.  This year, Santa gave me some beautiful, hand-cut wooden beads for stringing, made out of walnut.

Today, the first day of 2013, I pulled out my box of beading supplies and tools and set out to make something with the walnut pieces.  I ended up stringing together a bracelet.   I like how it turned out.

Thanks Santa!
