Happy New Year, everyone! Now that the Christmas rush is done and over with, I'm free to bead anything I want :D I did make my mom two necklaces-- one from me, one from my brother--and my dad went and bought a bunch of jewelry off me LITERALLY on Christmas Eve. That's okay though, he paid in cash. *teehee* Made an attempt of my own version of a Silpada bracelet with what I had in the stash, which didn't exactly turn out too well. I got all excited about it, too. *sigh* Fixed a bunch of jewelry for my aunt today, which reminds me, I need to fix a necklace for my grandmother before she visits... *scribbles on to-do list* I got the first season of Once Upon A Time for Christmas, so I put that in and started working on a necklace. My back is now killing me, but at least I kept the little slivers of wire from flying all the way across the room. Mostly. I also took my polymer clay focals I made forever ago and gave them a nice clear coat of...nail polish. Cuz that's all I had. But it works as far as keeping all the gold powder on them from getting everywhere. I even used one of the little birdy beads in the necklace I made. I don't know where my memory card reader is so I'll have to wait on the pictures. I might even list the rest of the beads. Oh, I did use another one to make an ocean-themed necklace. It was a sand dollar pendant, and I strung it and some glass pearls onto some brown waxed linen cording. Very beachy.
