My Signature Style

Upon learning a craft skill art whatever you
want to call it, you plug away and take apart
and put back together and try and try again
until finally you get something you actually
like...  that happened with these earrings.

They felt right, looked beautiful sexy on
and  even my evil twin liked em.
they sold immediately.
so I wasn’t the only one.

So what does one do then...?

do it again.

Repeat the formula...
and call it “my signature piece”

these too sold right away.
sweet lady who bought the first gave me rave reviews
on my feedback.. so keeps me going....and makes
me feel like I am on the right path in finding myself

and my style.

I don’t like to repeat myself but I’m still enjoying making
these...it’s a learning process and I like to think I’m improving
on each go round.  And there are so many beads...so many different
ways of looking at the same thing.
and to think two months ago I never wire wrapped a thing in my life.

And so I made this....geez what a struggle!
I got the focal down because it’s “my signature style”
but then what?   A necklace?!  They are hard for
me ....what do I do now?   So much space to fill...

Remembered I had some leather cording...maybe that
will work...

Hey where’s Ralph Lauren?  Wouldn’t this go with all
his American Indian layered denim prairie skirt thing?

Anyhow happy with it (for now)..listed it in the shop...
and on to the next project. 

 What’ya know...My Signature Style...
Next time with fabulous beads by Kim... Numinositybeads
Her handmade lampworked beads are killer cool,
sexy as hell and so inspirational...

Ah just couldn’t wait...went into the studio and
just made these...hot off the press..

Never had beads like this before...
wow the depth, intensity,
layers of colors and things going on in there.
And thinking of my girl Kim doing whatever it
is that she does to make these happen down
 North -of-the border
in Bisbee, Arizona.

"I left you in Bisbee” assemblage earrings

Here’s where you find da beads of yer dreams
