EEEEEK you want me to do what!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh my, oh my…my heart starts to beat faster, my upper lip is showing beads of sweat, I start to shake as the adrenelin starts coursing through my body. My hand is trembling with the knowledge that I will have to pick up that darned needle and thread and do something with it and that soon I will be shouting words so crude they would make a sailor blush!! Trust me, I have tried to overcome this fear of sewing, weaving, and working with long lengths of cord in every method known to mankind, the last being Kumihimo., but to no avail. Yes, I know I am masochistic.
However, I just came across this wonderful etsy shop called Totus Mel and my jaw droped to my chest and I fell in total awe and I realize that with talent such as this, I don’t have to risk my health or vocabulary again.
Thanks etsy, life is good,
Ellen

THE JOY OF BEADING…………..

Today was so wonderful, Christina, a customer of mine, sent me a photograph of a necklace and earrings that she made with a set of beads she bought from me called “Oil Slick”.    She utilized faceted citrine irregular chunks, Greek silver beads that are also irregular in shape and put it together with sterling wire. Fantastic job Christina!

UPCOMING WORK

The summer has been a rather wet one, actually I can’t remember the last time we had so much rain.  Everything is growing like crazy, my roses are loving it.   The dragonflies have been out enmasse this season, hubby and I always enjoy seeing them.  We have also had some awesome butterflies too. 

I so love it when I can make something to wear that is inspired by my surroundings.  I have been working my tush off torching and creating joolz.  I am such a tortured soul, lol, …I just can’t find enough time to do enough of both to satisfy me.  Anyway, here are some pics of just some of the new pieces
