Sun Star Pendant

Pattern by Cindy Holsclaw. Very fun project - leather chord from a remnant packet picked up somewhere along the way, very satisfying to find it a home.

Tila Garden 2

Also using Cindy Holsclaw's design. Soren does not approve of the colorway (he thinks it would be better if it was reversed) but I like it just fine.

Saturday, November 12, 2016


My first posts in 2016 are in November, which says a lot about this year.

Hi, Friends,

I am posting most of my 2016 completed beading projects here in the 11th month. It has been a crazy week, and the election has me truly shaken. Making myself feel better by focusing on what I can do: love my family, be there for my friends, where a safety pin, double down on my social justice work, and blow off steam with my beautiful beads!

So, below is 2016, a review...



The Wedding Suite... for Corrie! (April, 2016)

This is Sabine Lippert's Les Fleurs design with incredible bead colorway selected at Studio Beads in Deerfield.

Bridesmaid earrings designed by Marcia DeCoster, from  Beaded Opulence. SEVEN bridesmaids!

Piggy beads (May, 2016)

I made a dupe of this necklace I designed for a friend, did not want to give it away!
