    Alice, so glad to hear that you received those lovely moonstone rondelles this weekend, and plan to make some B/W pieces because that is what folks are asking you for – it’s definitely a challenge for me to do B/W pieces, given my love of saturated jewel tone colors – so I’m always tempted to ADD some colors that ARENt B/W to stones like the black water jasper… :)

    I’m in!! Self imposed. I am not happy with my bead spending habits of late.
    It’s comforting to know I’m not alone in bead prison. OK, where’s the coffee and chocolate?! ;-)

    I really like this B/W pick Joyce! It has lots of soothing greys to soften the contrast. I tend to use black only as an accent rather than a focal color. So I understand what you mean about using it and white alone.

    Welcome to my world! You chickies are gonna love it here! No really it makes you very selective about your purchases. I too have a hard time with working out of my comfort zone. I am with you Joyce. I like color! Really have a hard time with neutrals and the yellow, orange and brown combos. Have a hard time with muddied colors too.

    Great pick! Inspirational for beading prison. Count me in. But at least it is giving me an opportunity to use up my stash and be more creative with what I have. No purchases until after my next show, self-imposed.

    Martha and Cindy, your comments show why I’m definitely in BP with both of you… I too have stashes of my fav beads – primarily gemstones, seed beads and fw pearls… some swarovskis and pressed glass too – from years of going to LBS shops, bead shows, classes, and some online purchasing – no purchases for me till I find some steady work with an adequate salary, or otherwise some consulting clients who will pay my partners and I adequate fees for some projects.

    Joyce, I am sending you best wishes that you will find employment now that school is finished. I am sure that things will turn around, it is a shame that the economy is not supportive right now. Hang in there!!

    When my husband graduated College, he had to lie about his resume` & leave off his education. no one would hire him even for temp work, they said he was over qualified. I can very much sympathize with the frustrations you must be feeling. I believe in you!
