Obsessions

Weaving:

Weaving is my main obsession! I can start weaving in the afternoon, get into the zone and look up to find that it is past midnight!

Lately, I have been doing a lot of super duo and Tila bracelet designs.

I love playing with the pattern and colors

 

I found a new pattern that I love!

I have also been doing a lot of Herringbone with super duos as well. I just love the way they look when using the herringbone weave!

Stringing:

I am getting ready for the season, and trying to build up stock. I splurged on red Creek Jasper at our local bead show and had a lot of fun combining it with other stones and with Czech glass.

Love the pendants! I also liked how the African Turquoise complimented the Jasper.

I have a great fondness for Czech glass. I particularly love these cupped half circles. I enjoy stacking them so that they resemble  armadillo armor! They seemed to like the Red Creek Jasper and looked quite nice together.

Spring is here, and we are happy to see it!

How  I love to see the greening of the world after a long winter of muted whites and greys. The colors of nature in spring inspire me ceaselessly.
