I have been busy this year making “Alphabet Soup” with beads! Back in November of 2018 a friend from high school saw some of my bead work and thought I should make beaded purses! Well that’s not going to happen because I have no idea how to make a purse. The idea did not end there though! Cecelia had gotten my mind spinning with the idea of putting beads on a purse somehow to bling it up a bit! I needed to find a way to do this and within a week I had figured it out and got started. This is how we came up with hand beaded, “Made to Order” Purse Charms!
Every artist knows the most important ingredient in creating a new recipe is to choose your colors wisely!
Winter is here in all of her glory. Mother Nature has finally arrived upon Sassifras Hill. The trees are bare and the ground is a brilliant white all around us. The calming quiet around my studio is like a warm winter sweater upon my shoulders as I work. The only sound I hear is the soft breath of German Shepherds napping and the crackle of the wood stove keeping us cozy in the corner.
What do I do to fill the endless hours? Well sometimes I play with beads!
That is exactly what I have been doing since the New Year started. I decided it was time for a new design. I made a new template for 2019 and began to create the 1st Amulet of the year! “Sacred Walk” is now complete.
While I was creating “Sacred Walk” I took pictures to share with you so that you could see the steps it takes for an Amulet to come to life. So without making you wait any longer……. I hope you enjoy seeing how “Sacred Walk” came to life!
The blessing of Christmas and cherished time spent with family is behind us. New years eve and New years day were just two quiet days in the cabin on the hill. Jerry, me & all of our furry children wondering what the new year would bring. Monday quietly rolled into Tuesday.
New Year, New beginnings! January 1st 2019 I started my new JOB! I am now officially self employed! My studio is now my work place and I am now my own boss! I have worked for this day for a very long time and this will be the BEST job I have ever had!
