So, in spite of the cold, I am having more fun. My bead making always helps me to have fun. Now, I have to start turning these beads into some jewelry, too. I don't know what I will do, so that will be part of the fun. Most of the time, I just look at the beads to see what they want to do. Usually, I hear, "Sell me! Sell me." I'd like to do that because making beads into jewelry isn't the most fun I can have on a cold day or night.
The good news is that when it's done it's done. I am trying to subscribe to the philosophy of KISS--you know, Keep It Simple, Stupid. I like that idea. Today I bought some silk cords to turn my pendants into gorgeous pieces of wearable art. That will be fun. And as the days lengthen, I will begin to go outside. That's fun. I walk my dog. That's fun. I think it's all a matter of choice. Having fun is what we make it. I think I'm having more fun now. I know I am.
This is a new set of biagi beads that I have in my etsy store. It was so cold the day I made these. I looked out in my backyard. All I could see was snow, blowing snow, and ice. I really wanted spring that day. The result, These beautiful beads. I really like them.
This was really a fun piece of jewelry to make. I made this bracelet using vintage buttons that I actually inherited from my grandmother. I included a couple of my own beads in the mix. This was fun to make. I told you, I'm having more fun.
