Monday, Monday

Yea!! Monday again. I am glad that show and tell is Monday. Makes the beginning of the week a whole lot easier. LOL I really hope everyone had a wonderful Mothers Day. I had a very nice relaxing day. What could be better. I had a very busy week but managed to get a couple things done to post. In my spare time I was also working on the designs I am sending to Florida later this month for a magazine to be published in September. I am very excited about that and I will keep you posted.

For this week the first thing is a bracelet inspired by the beach. Especially Hawaii. And its all about summer. I do need to get some more things posted at etsy tonight or tomorrow, so take a look for new things. Second, this is an enamel heart. It started out as a piece of copper that I used a jewelers saw to get the heart. I used the black and white powdered glass that is put in a kiln to actually melt. I love doing enamel. I cant wait to get my own kiln, but I have found a studio that has open studio by the hour. I am really excited about that, and if life can slow down enough for me, i will be there more. I added a couple beads and put it on a black leather cord. And last is my purple flower garden bracelet. I bought the 3 purple flowers at a bead show last weekend. The are had made from glass from a local artist. Its just fun and for spring.

I hope you all have a wonderful week. I cant wait to see what you have been up to. I will be stopping by through out the day to have a peak at your new creations.... happy creating, luv, gail
