I heart Mondays

When I was purchasing some last-minute must-have supplies at my local bead store, the salesperson stopped in the middle of ringing up my transaction and went to assist the UPS guy. Normally, this would be poor customer service, but it allowed me a few minutes to search through the bargain bin they keep near the register. I couldn't resist this purchase. I guess poor customer service really is more like a good sales technique!

I think this would look pretty on leather cord with maybe a double jump ring connection. But instead, I'm going to try my hand at bead stitching. I'm going to make one of Beth Stone's skinny ropes (as soon as I turn in my book), and see if I can stitch a bail as well. I'll post again when the project is finished.

And speaking of the book, my deadline is a week away. I finished my last round of step-by-step photography today. The workspace is getting worse, but I'm really happy with the projects. I can't wait to share more with you.


  1. That pendant reminds me of the glass pendant I recently made at the Corning Museum of Glass (except I like this one). I could pick three colors, so I picked cobalt blue, a lighter blue, and red. I elected to do a marbled technique. Well, I just got my finished piece in the mail and the red looks like blood running through the pendant. I absolutely hate it. I'll have to show it to you so we both can laugh at it.

  2. I'm so sorry you hate it. I was going to offer to make it into something for you. Meredith is pretty good at bead making. I have never tried. I would love to go to Corning some day. Can't wait to see you soon.

  3. love your blog! very fun - and your work space is like mine! my studio is my dining room! Kartika
