Copper Green Beauties

I just love this new set of beads. Copper green base with handmade stringer of copper green,petroleum green,lapis blue,turquoise. Then I randomly place on copper green base and etched. The bottom set is dark purple with the same stringer design. I like how these came out. I am going to put up on my etsy store today.

Playing with Resin

The bookmarks are from Beaducation I added my hydrangeas flowers and resin. The bezel's  one has little bits of dichroic glass for some sparkle. There is a bead and key in the other one but you can't see the bead. My first try at this I put the wrong stuff to fill in the hole for hanging and the resin poured out and the stuck to my table. They were fun.

Garden 7/17

The garden!!!!! Oh the best yellow squash I have ever eaten. We made stuffed Zucchini that was super. The tomatoes are still green. The deer got there head inside of the fence and ate half of the tomatoes. I should say they ate the greens and dropped the tomatoes on the ground. So Joe and I are going to move them in a little. They are to heavy to do myself. 
     I have lots of new beads that will be in my etsy shop this weekend. I am going to have my 50 Cent Sunday Sale to get rid of one of a kind beads or extras from sets. Expired beads from etsy will be grouped together for extra savings. So stop buy.

Made a bracelet like this called Love. More lampwork beads in frit swirled design in this one. After taking the picture I can see the copper, brass and antique wire all do not match. Oh well I like it. The beads are so colorful.

Rain Rain Rain and more Rain

It rained everyday except the 4th and 5th that was good as the party was on the 4th. Had a great time. Forgot my necklace at home so no red white and blue on the holiday. It is so green and beautiful in upstate New York. Wish they would send some rain our way, we could use it here in Ca. I can not wait to get back to the torch. I have a few necklace designs I want to do. Got some new glass before my trip so I am itching to get started. Hope everyone had a nice Holiday.
