About Me

chattanooga, Tennessee, United States
I love to create one of a kind jewelry that is unique, different, and of course, beautiful. I work with several techniques and materials. I do wire wrapping, metal working, and beadweaving. Much of my work is for sale at my Etsy shop and my Zibbet shop (see link at the bottom of this profile.) You can also contact me directly. I have much more than is displayed in either shop. You can contact me through e-mail. I accept payment through PayPal. I'll also be happy to work with you on custom orders. Just tell me what you want and I'll try to accommodate. And thanks for looking! *Please note that these are my original designs and are copyrighted. Please do not copy my designs. Thank you for your artisic integrity and consideration. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ http://www.clairecreations.etsy.com http://www.zibbet.com/clairecreations

an exercise in futility

Today I decided to continue a task I've been sort of working on for a while -- organizing my studio space. Right! Since right now I'm working mostly with beads - little teeny ones, teeny ones, small ones, and others, I have hundreds of containers of the little buggers. Several different kinds of containers. Several different kinds of beads. Then I have all the other stuff that goes with the beads: needles and threads, tools, needles, miscellaneous supplies, and findings, etc.
Soo, this morning, I began sorting. And sorting. How do I sort? I have seed beads in many colors. Some have round holes, others have square holes. Even beads that are classified as one size come in different sizes when made by different manufacturers. Sort by color? by size? by shape? by manufacturer? What about all those specialty beads that don't really fit in a category?
Getting confused. So am I. I gave it up. I'll just continue on this slowly and eventually I'll come up with a way to keep things organized.
To keep myself from getting totally frustrated, I stopped tyring to organize and made a tourquoise with silver inlay ring for my granddaughter. I promised her one around Christmas and am going to see her on Monday, so I have the ring for her. I hope she likes it.
At least I got some little thing accomplished today.
