Day 218 – Celtic bracelet

by Shannon

I love the play of the cotton knot-work against the Celtic knot design on my handmade pewter beads! This one has two small and one large tube – and as you may have noticed, fits my husband perfectly!

Day 217 – note to self

by Shannon

Today’s note to self: when faced with fascinating and/or random beads, put them together and MAKE SOMETHING instead of carrying them around for months. Then enjoy!

Day 216 – for Friday fun-day

by Shannon

Yesterday my girls and I noticed that our packing peanuts were the cornstarch variety. For those of you unfamiliar with them, they are great lick and stick projects! Though I encourage using a sponge of some sort, I cannot make any guarantees. I decided to make a tiny statue, my Bug made a giraffe and B started on a house!

Days 213 & 214

by Shannon

I’m trying to catch up on inventory while also making new styles and designs. Yesterday, I used some of my skull beads in with chain in a necklace. Today, I used the same style bead in a knot work bracelet. Tomorrow- lets aim higher!

Day 212 – crystal-eyes

by Shannon

It’s time to really hear up for Halloween and Dia de Los Muertos! These pewter skulls are backed by a large red crystal to make them glow!
