Blogging & Beads


Yesterday I spent a few hours at the torch and created these colorful disk beads. My intent was to make disks for a bracelet but I think these will be used for earrings instead. I believe that I am the queen of the mismatched style. At least in earrings that is. I came up with doing mismatched earrings after discovering a line of infant clothing that is all about mismatch. They had mismatched socks and I have forgotten what else but I liked the concept. Infants loose socks. We always seem to loose an earring. So I figured, mismatching them would work just fine as long as there was a unifing thread. Can you tell which ones I'll be putting together? I'm going to work on silve components today so hopefully later this week the earrings will be complete.

My blog poll is done and thank you to those who took a minute and voted as to what they would like to see/ hear more of on my blog. Its very helpful to know what you are most interested in reading about. My idea is to have more of a structure to my blog so that each day will have a different focus. Give me a few days and I should have a better idea of my vision and I'll be able to share my outline.

I wanted to show you the 2 vessels I spoke of last week. To me, vessels are just plain fun to make. I don't really have a plan when I begin, I just work with whatever colors are on my bench and try to make the best of it. You might find these in my etsy shop....don't know yet....I always feel I must make something with things rather than sell them for others to make things with.

Your multicolor vessels are so pretty! I like the mismatch earring design. If I could wear earrings, I'd be sure to lose one of a favorite pair...this way it would be fun when I got to pick out a new one!

I love these fabulous bright colours, somehow I seem to end up making black and white at the moment even though I intend to do bright things :)
