October Fest & Blog Hop!

Autumn-Inspired Challenge!
Toltec Jewels of Jewel School Friends, is hosting an autumn- inspired challenge.  This challenge came with choices!

*Create an Autumn Inspired Treat!
*Make a Fall craft.
*Create a cool bead. 
*Design Halloween jewelry.
*Design Autumnal jewelry.
*Decorate your home or yard.
*Write a poem, dance or sing.

I decided to make a pair of earrings, specifically mismatched earrings. I have been hooked on mismatched earrings since Diana’s challenge (Suburban GirlStudio).  Although our family doesn’t celebrate Halloween, someone may want a pair of Halloween earrings designed by me.  It could happen.  The skulls are dyed howlite, lampies by DFJ Lampwork (Ebay) and unfortunately, I don't remember where I got the black lampwork disks for the party hats.  I also used swarovski crystals and czech rondelles.  Here are my October Fest earrings:

2019 Bead Peeps Swap & Hop Reveal!

To my Peeps: I think as I get older, sickness lasts longer. Everyone is better now and down to sniffles.  On to the good stuff. My partner for this years' Swap & Hop was Dain Schlegel of Dainty Designs.  However, she is recovering from a surgery and wasn't able to get beads to me.  I hope she gets better soon.  So Linda Anderson set me up with an Angel.  Krafty Max sent me a whole lot of beads. Beads on strings, beads in tubes, stone cabochons, fused glass pendants, and Czech beads, rounds, and crystals. Although, I didn't use all of the beads, I did manage to put together a few pendants and UFOs. The pendant above is one of the stones I worked with. Here are the beads she sent: Here is a pendant made with a few blue and white stones from KM. It's finished, I just need to bead up a rope. This is supposed to be a Mini Mountain Girl bracelet (Regina Payne), and I used to small purple stone beads from KM. Thank you Krafty Max for the bea

Art Charm Exchange, Auction and Reveal!

Add caption The Art Charm Exchange hosted by Jennifer Cameron, Glass Addictions .  The purpose of the Art Charm Exchange, other than the opportunity to swap beautiful charms, was to make an extra charm to be auctioned off to... Beads of Courage !  The theme was laughter.  I agonized over this for several days before I buckled down and made the charms above.  I just used beautiful art beads from my collection, crystals, and a shrink art charm.  This was my first foray into art charms.  After I mailed them out to our wonderful hostess, I began to think about other things I could have done.  Oh well, maybe next time.  I cannot remember where all of the art beads came from, but I do know some came from Juli Cannon of Julsbeads , Carolyn Harmon, Miami Valley Lampwork Bead Association , Janel Goolsby/ JeraLunaDesigns , and a few artists with Ebay shops.  Thank you Jennifer for introducing me to a fun project and a wonderful charity. These are the charms I received: List of Parti
