Sorry for the lack of updates recently!! I haven't been buying beads as much due to my financial situation changing. But I'm going to the bead store this week to get the materials for lisabella's necklace!

And I finished my Bhelliom blue-rose at my last class two weeks ago. I will have to take a picture of it and post it. It didn't turn out as well as my daisy, because I accidentally used a high-fire enamel for the background (I didn't like the white so I changed it to cream) and didn't realize that it was high-fire. So I melted some of the wires, unfortunately. But it's still really pretty.

Midway through the class, I was frustrated with my progress and didn't think I'd be taking cloisonne again. But I am really pleased with how my pieces came out, so if it's offered again, I think I'll take it. I really wanted to take a class this summer, but I don't have the money for it. So I think I'll be taking at least one short class at the bead store. They're offering classes on rings, so I'd like to do that.

And! I now have six people who heart me on Etsy!!!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while! But I have been busy making more jewelry! AND! My Etsy store is officially open! There's nothing in it yet, and I don't have a banner (does anyone know how to make one?) but I have a spot secured. My seller name is silvercatdesign1980. Come heart me!

Here's some eye candy:

I have another necklace in the making but I bought the wrong amount of silver spacers. DOH. And I have the beads for another necklace.
 
 
 
 
 
 
I finished Nancy's jewelry this afternoon! Since I didn't mention this previously, here's the scoop -- Nancy is one of my mom's weaving friends. Her son is getting married (in London!) on the 30th. She is also a dyer, and is dyeing the fabric for her dress and commissioned me to make jewelry that picked up the colors of the dress. I didn't take a picture of the swatch she gave me, but it's royal blue with whitish starbursts (or whatever they're called) tinged at the edges with pink, and the dress is edged with turquoise and coral.

So! The main beads of the jewelry are blue. I picked up the pink with pale pink seed beads, and the coral with coral druks and a VERY funky focal bead.

Here are the pictures. My camera doesn't do the colors justice, unfortunately... I may have to invest in a better camera. Or at least better lighting!

Enjoy! And remember, I can do jewelry for any occasion! Hint hint! :D
