Well I finished my EBWC creation so on to the next. I have a name for this one already. Just thought I would show my newest started project. Keep watching for the finial project. Anyone know how to make metallic beads photo better. They just always look so black in my photos I have tried different settings on my camera but this is the best I can get. Anyway keep checking back for the end result.

Ok so I did get a chance to finish my piece for the Etsy Challenge for August. The Theme is "Art Deco". I was very inspired by many things about the art Deco theme. I did some research and found that cool colors were the color scheme's for that time period. Green was very popular. I chose to go with blue for the other color due to me reading that Ocean Liners were among things that were very Art Deco as well and I thought Blue when I heard that. I read that they had jumbled shapes which I have done with glass beads along with my bead wrapped Bloodstone on the wrist of the bracelet. The boldness of curves and stepping also inspired me as well. And sunburst were typical of this time which I have created for the closer of the piece.This is my own take on "Art Deco" and hope you all appreciate that.I really am more than happy with the end result it took me a few weeks to finish and get it just right. I love the end result.
Also I loved the way the Bloodstone turned out and was wrapped in the piece. I cant get over how perfect it turned out. If you know me you know I love stones and to incorporate them in every piece I have if I am able. I hope you all enjoy checking this piece out as I enjoyed creating it. I guess I should mention this is a freeform bracelet. I guess I am so excited about it all I forgot to mention that in the listing also yikes.

Today I have gotten a chance to put a few ear cuffs in my etsy shop. I am going to add some more after I post this blog. I like how the cuffs turned out alot. I worked on them some time ago but never got photos of them due to my batteries for my camera keep disappearing to my sons Xbox wireless controler. I actually made him be my model of my ear cuffs only not the ones for sale. I actually found that I thought it was strange to have the ones I sell modeled or be worn since ears can be so sensitive. Let me know your opnions on this of course please. So finially got pictures taken and am posting what I can today. Im not sure if I will get to post my Beadweaving challenge project for August tonight I may wait til tomorrow to do that and post about it as well. So keep checking back often. Thanks everyone.

Sorry I have neglected my blogspot lately. I felt that no one was looking at it. I had alot going on in my personal life so I kinda forgot about it for awhile. Things have changed a bit recently and Im back in action. Keep watching. Tomorrow I will be posting 2 new blogs. One will be about my piece for the Etsy Beadweavers Challenge for August the theme is ~Art Deco~. Super excited how this piece turned out. I just hope others see my vision and agree its art deco. I did some research on it but took bits and pieces from what I learned and made my own updated piece of art. The other is something I just started today. But have a vision for it and a name actually.
Im still trying to come up with a name for the Art Deco piece. Hmmmm. Anyways dont forget to check out my etsy shop for added new items after Monday July 28th, 2008.
