I know, I know. Back in June, I committed to creating out of my storehouse of cabochons and beads, and resist the gem shows (see the results of my labors here and here). I'm here to tell you I have fallen off the wagon! A gem show was just 10 minutes from my house, and I swear to you my car drove me there without me even realizing it (that's my story and I'm sticking to it).
Next thing I knew, I had a bag full of beads, cabs, and findings. And as I was looking at the spoils, I noticed that there seemed to be a theme of what makes my heart go pitter-pat: Busy-ness.
There was no one color that stood out, but pattern, that's where it's at. The patterns create visual interest, kind of like a painting.
I wanted to give you a bit of a tour of some of the additions to my inventory. At the time of this writing, they have not been wrapped, so if you see one you can't live without, contact me ASAP for an appointment to make it your own piece of custom jewelry.
I can't wait to get my wire a-wrapping an show them off to you! In the meantime, here are some examples of busy-ness in my jewelry. Some of the interest is from the stone, some from the components in the jewelry.
I think "busy" should be my middle name...so if you are in need of a busy piece of custom jewelry, you know who to call -- me, in case that wasn't obvious.
Until next month, which is also next year,
