HAPPY THANKSGIVING

HAPPY THANKSGIVING  Lots to be thankful for this year. Hope everyone has a great day with family and friends. We were out of power since Sunday a big snow storm dropped 2.5 feet of the white powder then it hailed so all the soft fuffy snow is hard and slipery. Got power back on Weds at 3:30 so mad dash to make all the pies. Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

My roll didn't last long!

Just when I was getting back into the groove of making beads and Jewelry I had my expander placement. A very painful ordeal. I can only sit at the computer or desk for a short time. I am on the mend and will be back soon.

Healthy and No Radiation Needed

I am so excited. I don't need the radiation after all. I was told all along that was the next step. Radiologist said the the percent of not getting the cancer back didn't outweigh the side effects of the radiation. I can get back to what I love to do making beads and jewelry designs. I have a cool necklace made with Doreen's and Sue's beads. I also have a fun button necklace in bright colors. I will take pictures today and post later. Thanks for all your prayer's and Well Wishes.

Pink Ribbon Bracelets

When do you feel like a Survivor?

Its be an long time posting. I have finished 7 months of chemo for Breast Cancer. I have a month off then 6 weeks of Radiation every day. I am making beads for bracelets to sell at the Relay for life. All the proceeds will go to The American Cancer Society. I will give you a peek. If you would like one drop me an email. I made a necklace  out of a glass rod and bent into ribbon that one is for me to wear. I tried to make more but out of ten I made only one looks like the ribbon. Plus working with tweezers it was an accident waiting to happen. The Relay starts July 18 11:00 to July 19 11:00. If you would like to donate money Go to the Relay for Life of Pacifica my team name is Partners For Life. We all are camping,  someone in our team we be walking the 24 hours.
     I feel good, the chemo wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Don't get me wrong it wasn't a walk in the park but doable. Just a hurdle to get over. I am having a hard time with being called a survivor. I am not finished with treatment  yet. I went to New York for a wedding and when I came home my loving husband got a tatoo of pink awarness ribbon and my name on his arm. This is his first tatoo. All I saw was 1952-2010 in my head. So I was less then pleased. Everyone loves it and what an honer that he did that. When do you feel in your heart that you are truly a survivor?
     Sorry got a little off track. Making new designs and beads when I can. We planted the garden yesterday. Not a full garden as we will not be here. I will keep you posted with pictures. Hope all are having a great summer.

RECYCLE CHANDLER GLASS



A friend gave me about 100 lbs of this glass. I have not tried to work it with other glass because I don't know the if it's 96 coe or 104 coe or 90. Its very easy to use. The pictures look like there are bubbles but it's the light. I wish I could take better pictures. Crystal shapes are fun to add to designs. What other shape would be good with clear glass?

Rainforest



I drove into San Francisco yesterday to see if I could get some beads to match my gorgeous beads from Doreen. ( BackyardBeads) I found a strand of Tagua Nut beads in many bright colors. Deep in the Amazon Rainforest grows a special tree,the Tagua or Ivory Palm. Tagua nut has been used to make buttons,jewelry and carved objects since the 19th century. I love the colors and how this bracelet turned out.
The necklace is made with vintage seed beads and coral and jade and a tube bead from Doreen.

LAMPWORKER'S MUST HAVE TOOL



HOLD-ME-TIGHT ROD HOLDER from grace@gracefulcustoms.com
This is the greatest tool. Sue remember talking about what to do with small pieces of rods this tool is for you or any other lampworker that reads my blog.
It has a curved saddle so picking up the round glass rods is a breeze. I could work out of my box of shorts for a very long time. Maybe one day just use shorts for a day of beading. Lots of colorful beads will be made.
