Bead Show

Yesterday I went to my first bead show. I took my husband and son. Man was that a mistake. I think they spent more money than me. The show was nothing like I thought it would be like, but that is okay. Idid take away some goodies. For the true beaders out there that work with those tiny seed beads that I can't even see the hole with my glasses on my hats off to them! I seen one piece of art with those tiny things.

The Like Button and Comments

I was talking to a group member and friend today one of the things we talked about was liking ones work. Just wondering how everyone feels about this... If I hit the like button letting you know that I like your piece am I really saying I like it. You know what I mean... But If I tell you I like it and post a comment wouldn't that be better. I know we all are busy is there a way to tell someone why you like there work. We're all learning and I know with myself you guys will tell me something totally different than what my family tells me. Trust me on that!!!!! In short I think we need to take the time with one another and be honest about work. I wouldn't want someone liking the like button if they don't like it. That way I don't keep doing what I'm doing. If that makes since. I want to create stuff that will sell and I can't get better if you aren't honest with me. Just food for thought.

Kitchen Sink Jewelry # 2

Well I finally finished my second Kitchen Sink Jewelry Challenge. I thought I was never going to finish it. I'll post pictures tomorrow after I take a flower off  that my son said had to go. It' obvious he doesn't like it. Maybe it's the color who knows. Keep in mind that this is made out of all wire even the  chain links .  See you tomorrow.

Wire Kitchen Sink Jewelry

Hi all, just a little update of what I'm working on this week. After I made my last Kitchen Sink Jewelry for our group challenge for March I decided to see if I could put one together with nothing but wire, but of course I have to add a little color. I'll probably finish some time this weekend, it's a little harder than what I thought  going into it but I got this. See you soon to share.
