I have been totally MIA on my blog! With that being said, I think this is my grand slam of entries. Funny too, since I feel like I have accomplished nothing since my last post a month ago. I guess I am fooling myself LOL reading this entry I see that indeed I have done many things…yay!! I have more to share, but need images, so this shall suffice for now.
I finally received my blank hair forks. I was beginning to think I just lost money on that deal, but they arrived. Phewww!
I got right to work and made 3 of them. I had 20 blanks, so a few left to do up. I need to find long hair ladies..they are becoming obsolete I think LOL Can’t wait until mine grows back.
Here are the first 3 forks I have made.
These are available on my website HERE
Here is a custom order of Club Mace Hair Sticks I did just after the forks.
She loved the hair sticks! That is always a relief!
I have also recently made another ‘Fission’ piece in bronze and blue, a more every day color combo!
You can get the pattern HERE.
I have also made another pattern since my last post. This one was a challenge to work up with Super Duos. They cannot be done with Twin beads, unfortunately.
Then I was hired to make 12 pairs of these. Thankfully, they whip up pretty fast. I was kind of tired of making them by the last pair LOL
My customer was very happy to get them 😉 Pattern HERE
Meanwhile, the Czech Gumdrops came in. This is still a work in progress, hopefully get back tot his project this week.
I have also made a 6 round with this same design. I look forward to finishing it so I can write up a tutorial.
Also, in playing with Super Duos I designed this:
I made some really cool earrings with this design, one fringed, one not fringe. I have yet to take photos of them though. So another tutorial on the horizon LOL
In the meantime, I made another barrette for a customer. She wanted ‘all white, with “confetti” ‘ I think I succeeded in that. She loves it! That was, I think her 5th barrette from me. I have lost count 😉
My daughter has been bugging me for more quill earrings. So I made her one pair and have another to send (not photo graphed yet). This is the pair she has received so far.
I made her a purple pair, then figured while I had the purple out, I would make a pair for my shop. So these are for sale HERE
and last, but not least, I made a new Finger Cuff yesterday with a Czech Spike, in blue iris. This is the 2nd spike ring I have made. I made one last year with a metal spike and it didn’t go over so well. A spike ring is going to be in Bead and Button next issue and it is cute and I am sure everyone will make one. Personally, I would So wear one of these!
