Designer’s Corner

I make beads for people who design lovely jewelry! From time to time they are gracious enough to share photos of their creations. Here is a pair of earrings made from some spike beads I made. Susan turned them into a neat pair of dangles! I love how she used the spike 🙂   You can see more of her work here ==> Susan Delphine Delaney

Never take for granted……..

I have a bum knee right now and am kind of feeling sorry for myself. I have more than a few friends who have had knee surgery or replacement – seems like the parts start to wear out right about this age!!  Thank goodness for a caring husband who makes life easier till this thing gets fixed. What would l do with out him? He is second to none in my book.  Well I will stop whining and post a picture of some of my FAVORITE new bead creations!!!

I thought about writing a Haiku the other day. What is a Haiku and how hard is it to write? Pretty simple:

the trick is to remember “3 lines, then 5,7,5”

3 lines

  • 5 syllables
  • 7 syllables
  • 5 syllables

As an exercise I decided to try my hand at a few…. some turned out better than others of course. Try one yourself! Pick a subject you like and then write!

(whilst in the garden last week…….)

Poking through the dirt
Soil and sun make the seed sprout
The cycle endures

Another ETSY artist that works with lampwork beads. Here are some things she made with beads from  my LazyCatBeads shop! Her copper wirework is super don’t you think? Sure to catch anyone’s eye as well as make the wearer feel pretty special.

New Beads!

etsy_041413_DSC07366Sometimes I feel like I have lost my Muse…. those are the days when I begin by making ‘spacers’ of any colors that I like just to warm up and get in the groove. Sometimes the day ends up by being an ‘all spacer day’  and when I open the kiln the next morning I am greeted by a treasure trove of the lovelies. Other days I make a few spacers and then get right to work. I usually plan out what I intend to work on for the day if possible. Lately I have wanted to go back to some of the sweet beads I made in my early bead making days. Last weekend I used my favorite Silver Laden Glass and made these Triton beads. I am never disappointed with the color and the effect.
