The original intention of this blog was to help promote my handcrafted jewelry and beading supplies. However, I believe I lead an interesting life (which Dave gets a lot of credit for), so you will often find ramblings about things other than beads and jewelry! Hope you enjoy reading about it as much as I enjoy living it!!!
Here are my latest creations, all of which have been listed in my Etsy shop. I am trying to break through my normal boundaries when it comes to color. This is one of the hardest things for me when it comes to creating jewelry. I tend to be very "monochrome", even in my own wardrobe. I wear lots of black, brown and neutrals. What's funny is I can remember being this way as a child. I remember my mom taking me shopping for school clothes when I was in elementary school and even way back then I had "issues" with color. If she picked out a blue pair of pants, then I had to have a blue top that matched the pants EXACTLY. There could be no difference in the shade of the color...and of course, it had to be a blue top. It couldn't be pink or red or some other color (well, except for white because white matches with everything!). Weird, huh?

Hot Fudge Sundae - Magnesite, fossil bead, ceramic and sterling silver bracelet
Beware!!! I have a tendency to ramble. I am a lover of beads and metals. I'm one of those lucky people that met their soulmate. Dave and I met in high school and start dating shortly afterwards. We have built a relationship based on mutual respect and honesty. He has taught me so much about life (and lots of other things, like driving a 5-speed, riding a motorcycle and handling a gun). I can't imagine walking (and sometimes running) through this life with anyone else! I adore my friends and family. I consider myself a cowgirl, but I'm just learning how to ride horses. I like the laid-back lifestyle. I love when Dave and I take the Jeep out mudding. I'd rather be outside working in the yard than inside cleaning. I'm the proud owner of an American Pitbull Terrier. I love wearing cowboy boots. I am a proud American.
