Personal

Hello! I am a beginner beader from Florida, and am having a bit of fun with the Fresh Picks. Eli is my 12 year old Corgi boy, and he has some health issues. “Hope” was designed for him, as I hope he will get better, and be with me for a long time to come.
Dixie is my other furbaby, who suffers from spinal issues and has a hard time getting around.
Garry is my partner of umpteen years, and he takes care of the furkids while I’m at work. Ge’s a budding beader as well!

My designs are inspired by the things I see around me in nature. Ilove Labradorite, Amazonite, Appatite, and any type of pearl…especially Keishi pearls.

    I like this one the best so far. The colors and different beads/textures add interest and movement to the piece.

    Love the color, texture, and ethnic vibe of this necklace.

    Crystal, this beautiful and lush! So worth the time and sore fingers. Love it!

  • Elis Mom commented on the Design “What would you do?”   2 months, 1 week ago

    I agree with putting it away for a week or so. If you pull it out and are unhappy, try again. Look at that magnificent pendant for inspiration. Try laying beads of similar colors next to it. Or even contrasting colors. You could try using beads of different textures/shapes as well. Or simply put a seed [...]

    Susie, Just a note to say how much I love your work and how it has inspired me over the years–it really ’speaks’ to me. You are a very creative & inspired artist.
    Take Care, Crystal

    Thanks so much Susie! You should definitely go for it! I bet you can find some really fab pieces there! The great thing about vintage jewelry is that you can just disassemble it and use the pieces that you want! It stinks cause where we live here, there is not a whole lot of cool stuff and if there is any at all people generally want waaaaaay too much for it! My father-in-law lives in Michigan and buys boxes of things at estate sells for like $1 or $2! I get to pick stuff out sometimes so thats fun! If you go, you have got to let me know what you pick up! How cool!

    Wish you could send some of that rain our way! We just got a teensy bit of rain last week! Hope the weather calms down a bit for you. You might wanna stock up on the life essentials, in case your power goes out again, like a flashlight, beads and thread! ;)

    I imagine that would make it terribly difficult to do much of anything! How do you stand the tropical storms? We get severe thunderstorms sometimes and tornado warnings and I have to say they make me incredibly anxious! Hope you find fair weather in your future weekend!

    I wanted you to know I love all your picks! I have three pomeranians. We went to look at a Pom listed in the paper. I guess we should have known something was wrong because she was a beautiful Pom. After we had her for a while, she started limping. We took her to the vet and she adviced surgery. So, 1600 dollars later, we have a joy of a dog. Sweetie is so smart and our baby! glad you are my friend on Lima! Donna
