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.

Working on new Freeform bracelet

I'm working on a new freeform bracelet, and once again, it is going off in directions I never imagined. I 'see' the whole thing in my head, but the beads don't always fall the way I think they will, so I have to keep adjusting. Sorry, but don't have a picture of it just yet. I'm trying to control the shape so it doesn't get too unwieldy and have to keep remembering to use smaller beads when I want it to curve in.
And as usual, it is taking far longer than I thought it would. I'll try to get a picture or two for my next post. I want to get this done becuase there are a few other projects I want to do before a new show I have coming up on the 22nd and 23rd of this month. I'm supposed to demo at this show -- but demo on a gourd as well as on jewelry as they already have a few other jewelry makers, but I'm the only gourd person. And I'm also trying to finish up the written part of a project I have contracted with Step by Step Beads - that's supposed to be in before the end of this month. Why did I let it sit for so long and wait for the last minute?

You are one busy lady, Claire. Good luck on getting everything done.

Things just seem to pile up and life gets in the way. I never seem to have enough hours in the day to do what I want to do.
