Enjoying the summer.

For those of you who don’t know, my “craft room” is an ongoing struggle.  I put the quotes around craft room because right now it’s a sea of disorganized boxes.  Today I managed to do a bit of sorting and sweep the floors.  It had quite the collection of dead bugs.  EW!  I’m hoping to spend the next week, a few hours a day, working on the room and I do feel determined to get it to a usable state before school starts.

We’ll go to Myrtle Beach in a few weeks and I’ll get some beach combing in.  I wish I could find more sea glass or beach pebbles there.  I do find a lot of worn down shells which I think would make great jewelry if I actually sat down and did it.  Here is one of the necklaces I have made this summer. It is made on antiqued copper chain with stone beads.  Approximately 17” long.

Fiber Necklace Idea

I'm really getting into the whole fiber/fabric and wire thing. I am drawn to experiment with fancy yarns, fabric scraps, wire and re-purposed beads. I think I'm on a recycle kick. I may be submitting this one to my kids' school auction. I'll have to set it aside and look at it later to really decide.

I've been busy.

I've been working on some jewelry to send to The Sampler's Oscar gift lounge table. Some of the highlights of my pieces were that they used a lot of re purposed beads. (Beads I took from old unwanted jewelry) They also used my ClinkIts, which are made from stained glass scraps from a glass company, and recycled fibers. The fibers I used were from sari scraps and some scraps from my kids' art class in school. Here are some photos of what I sent.
