New work and lovin the monkey.


I’ve been on a necklace making binge.

Suddenly, without warning, I had some ideas...
so I took this old crystal  I had and painted it pale pink...

Then I wrapped that baby in wire as I have a tendency to do.
and added those little tiny czech seed beads that I had
since the 70s.



Then I added a few more beads...pretty pale girly.



a smattering of hope....


Not only do I love how this turned out...I mean want to
keep it!





Hey and look!   Another one!
Geez...feast or famine for me...

I got these fabulous Bohdi Tree beads at the bead show
down south...

They are so earthy, textured, wonderous things.
They were for a Mala... Tibetan Prayer beads...

I wear my heart on my sleeve...

I’m finally starting to be able to mix beads up...
without getting all fussy and counting and first one
and then another about it...freedom!

And these pics!
well I’m loving those too....
Thank you PicMonkey...which is the bomb...
Turns meh into beauteous...

Hey there, no wonder you've been kind of quiet lately!
Look at all this wonderfulness and the tip on the Pic Monkey. I love the designs you're coming up with.
I have some lampwork focals that I'm ready to pass along. Care to do your magic with it?
I actually just checked in on my computer while I was running up to my office to get batteries for my camera as I just discovered a morning light source in my garage studio that will work for some new pics.

When I first clicked onto your post I read it as 'New York and loving the monkey' .. I think I must be sleep deprived. Love the new work (see I got it in the end). Kate
