My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

August 6, 2011

It started with just one....

My sister fromArizona came to visit and brought with her a few of her latest creations. I Loved them and she  talked me into trying my hand at beading my own.  After finding a couple Bead stores here in Klamath Falls,
We gathered a few beads and needles and thread.. Well as you can see  a few turned into a LOT of glass seed beads.. and now I am hooked. I know where my extra pennies are going to be spent...
  The aqua one on the left is one she made and I made the lavendar one . Also the smaller Russian Spiral purple. * this was my first project*  Shown  by itself also...Now I have completed an aqua Spiral and a rust & gold one. I need to have her show me again how to connect the clasps... I will see her this next week when I go to Washington to my Moms house. Clay will be crabbing with a friend  while we entertain ourselves at beading..  The last picture is of the Bracelet I want to make next..  My Arthritis or carpel tunel in my wrist has flared a bit so I have taken a few days off... hopefully I will be able to make another  this week... I am Hooked!

I have had requests to make some to sell and if my hands will allow it. I will try to accommodate those requests.  Don't you think they are pretty? Now I must stay away from the bead store for awhile.. I plan to go to a great bead store in Washington on my way to mom's called "Shipwreck Beads."  Oh!  my husband is gonna love hearing this.....  Well, I need some more clasps & a few different  shaped beads to do the next project....  Stay tuned... for how that turns out..
