You say you make jewelry?

Well believe it or not I once made jewelry, it seems like it was a lonnnnnnnnnnnnng time ago....back when dinosaurs roamed the earth and I accessorized with fur pelts and jagged shards of rock. I hob nobbed with the talented gals in the ebay boutique world and loved every minute of it. Then I found myself gravitating more and more to the photography and the jewelry was tossed to the wayside. Some gals have started a group that is going to revolve around holidays and asked me to join and create jewelry for those launches and with that launch coming up I have found my jewelry creative juices flowing! I have really been into vintage buttons lately, I wear them myself and have been collecting some here and there and when the jewelry bug struck I pulled out my buttons and stash of wonderful beads and made these two items:

Fall Apples" is for mom!

and What a Hoot is for girls.

To be honest I'm not even sure that I have the followers anymore that I once had! I was one of the original soldering girls who took it to different levels and tried to be unique and then everybody started jumping on that same bandwagon, not even trying to be unique...just taking other peoples ideas and running with them. It sort of took the fun out of creating to know someone was looking over your shoulder ready to swipe your idea. Some even swiped right down to the way the pieces were photographed which is downright ridiculous! It sucked my passion away for something I once really loved, so today was nice to sit down and create these pieces and really enjoy what I was doing and make something that I would love for me and my girls!

I have some more things up my sleeve for this launch, some collaborations with designers that I really respect and admire so thanks to them for the inspiration to make a few fun pieces and dust off the box of beads!

WQe are totally brain twins! WOO HOO. I adore your butterfly wings, they make me think. Definitely a conversation piece! You still need to do a series of them based on The Twilight books! How is Eclipse coming for the second time?!

Oh, honey ... I finished it a week ago:) It was GREAT!

I actually am going to make one for my friend for her belated b-day gift... it will be just a red satin ribbon between the glass, with the words "vampire girl" or "be safe" or something like that :) Any suggestions?

And... you are right, i need to update my blog big time... I have been crazy busy getting ready for a Trunk Show coming up this saturday...

Ooooooooh I love it! You need a great line from the book that makes it more dramatic! (and that will fit in the space.) Of course now that I say that I can't think of one *snicker*. A trunk show, that is fantastic! Any fun sneak peeks to show :)
I also noticed you are a writer....I LOVE writing. That is truly my dream, to write a book!
Brain twins :)
