Ever since my hubby and I celebrated our 20th, I've been into making jewelry again! Between that and the recent Intergalactic bead show at the Gwinnett convention center, more and more new ideas for jewelry creations have been stirring around in my head.
Last weekend topped it off when I found an estate sale with lots vintage pieces to add to my growing vintage jewelry collection! Yea! now for some time...that seems harder and harder to come by lately. Maybe I can grab some time in between the 7 projects I've got to do for Plaid.
So here's how it all began....My hubby and I took a long road trip for our 20th. We called it our "butterfly trip", more on that in another post. Well, I always need something to do with my hands - so along came my beads. I even trimmed it down a bit from what I had originally packed. My hubs thought 3 large tote bags loaded with my beading supplies was just too much to lug! I kinda saw his point (even though, hey, what if I just needed that certain color) Yes, I obliged and weeded out and only brought 2 tote bags full.
Yes, beads were everywhere! On my lap, by my feet and stacked up on the middle console while in the car. I hardly had room for my feet and my hubby kindly reaccommodated his arm on top of all my bead boxes.
I beaded for hours and am sure to be finding beads under the seat for a while.
Dangling beads...ahh yes!
and matching earrings too!
I really like the eclecticness of this one!
These are just a few of the many sets I made during our road trip...Look for some of these in my Etsy shoppe soon!

Beads Galore! The Intergalactic Bead show was, to say the least, overwhelming. It was really hard to focus on what I needed for my ideas....with ALL the options.
Table after table was spread with luscious beads! Ahh what one can do...
And since I've been into the scrabble tiles lately, I made some for my Etsy Shoppe.
and I've been wanting to experiment on dominoes. I like the way they turned out. Look for these too in my Esty Shoppe too :)
Until next time XO,
