In the works....
It's been a little while since I have blogged - but I wanted to share with you some of the projects I have going on right now.
First - I have started working with a fellow Ohioan on a bracelet she had featured on the tv show "Pretty Little Liars." The bracelets are all custom-made with the name of the person ordering - I am making the purple and white bracelets shown. I have literally dreamed about purple and white beads - and I am sure that it will not be the last dream about those.
I decided to take a break from the PLL bracelets - and have been working on an art deco necklace - to match the cuff shown. This was a special request from a customer who bought this cuff - and I am happy with what I have created. Just finishing it up at this point. (Pictures coming soon....)
I have also gotten a special request to create a grape/wine themed bracelet and/or necklace for Emily. Her husband, Van and I are old friends. They are now the care-takers for Shamrock Vineyard located in Waldo, OH. I may be designing some wine charms and other jewelery to sell at the vineyard - I am very excited about that prospect as well. I have already got one design planned out for Emily - just need to bead it up.
I have also designed a gothic cross - I love the look of this one on paper - I can't wait to see it beaded up and "in person."
Last but not least, I am also planning a cancer memorial bracelet in memory of my Dad. I am working with The Sam Bish Foundation - and plan to donate proceeds from my sales to this organization. More will come on this as plans get more finalized.
As you can see, I am keeping myself busy. I am still working as a waitress as my "real" job - and beading really has been taking up nearly all my free time as of late. I guess it is a good thing that I love doing it.
Updates and pictures will be coming soon - I do have a lot on my plate right now - so expect a lot of new things coming from me in the very near future.
