Looks like the blog will be getting a new look...

I guess since I'll have to go through the process of re-entering the code for my blog background, I'll finally get around to making it three columns like I have always wanted. Maybe I'll get to that tomorrow :-)


Anyway. The week has been busy with shipping threads (thank you so much to all who purchased!) and a few custom orders. Below is the latest, a request was made for one of my "Petal Perfect" necklaces to be made to look more like a sunflower. Here is the result-

It is currently listed and waiting for it's purchaser. The only real design change I made was to trade out the cabone ring center for a Catherine wheel. I used a HDT of mine for the center, and regular Lizbeth for the rest.

In our last go-round of dye, the Dr. and I did probably 20 different skeins of solid colors in 10 and 20 for my own personal stash. I did some extra large perle cotton too and have been using it for hairclips and the like. And now that the custom orders are out of the way, I'll be working on a very special piece that I have been planning for some time. I went to Shipwreck Beads a few weeks back and came home with Gobs of crystal for some necklace and earring sets that should be all sorts of spectacular, as long as everything goes well of course!

This one is exceptionally nice. I'm not a sunflower jewelry fan but this turned out beautifully.
