Has it been that long??!!

My, how time flies when you're having a good time!
Seems as if it's been forever since I last posted here. Sorry about that, folks!

Since my last post I've gone full-time on my day job and celebrated my tenth anniversary. My husband and I were married September 3, 1999 in a courthouse in Carrollton, Georgia. Our daughters and son-in-law were our witnesses. I made all our silk floral headpieces and bouquets and the girls' gowns were thrift-store finds.

Going full-time at work has really cut into my beading time. I adore my job and wouldn't change a thing, but I must admit I have definitely missed my time at the bead board. So this weekend, I was determined to make time to bead and here are the results:

First, we have a necklace and bracelet set comprised of 17mm Czech glass swirl beads, Czech glass faceted, fire polished beads, bali style silver plated beadcaps and silver plated bicones.

Next is a five-strand necklace made of freshwater pearls, mother of pearl, glass seed beads and glass bugle beads.
I love multi-strand necklaces but they sure take a long time to make!!

I have added new items to my Artfire Shop. Go check it out!

  1. Congratulations on your anniversary! I'm glad work is going well, even if it is keeping you from beading a bit. That 5 strand necklace is a real stunner! I tend to do a lot of 2 strands. They take as much time as two singles, but they do make a statement.


Thanks so much for leaving me a comment!
