2010….into 2011

Alexander

 

So much has changed in this one year. First things first.. I now have a baby boy! He truly makes my heart go pitter patter. He has brought many moments of laughter and tears. He’s a kind old soul that just wants to smile and run! He started walking at 8 months old. But, because I’ve been so busy with Alexander and of course Isabel.. and do not forget Sarah! I’ve not had time to spend time with my lovely beads.. until recently. I’ve recently gotten everything in place to begin again my love, my craft. Let me tell you what I’ve been playing with… Beautiful miyaki seed beads. I’ve been creating French Beaded Flowers.. This is one of my first..

From Vintage Mom Creations.. Little Pink FlowerSo much is coming into my heart and mind now.. I just don't have enough time in the day to create all of my thoughts! But, avid reader.. prepare for an arresting amount of delicious beaded pleasure coming soon.. my heart can't be contained for long!As a side note I thought I'd share my newest photo of Ms. Isabel ( she's the one with down syndrome that many of you have grown to love) she's now 4 years old and a wonderful big sister. One of my best friends Joy created this wonderful piece of digital art for me ( you can find her on the internet by searching "Goddessjoy" she makes WONDERFUL jewelry.. and is an artist I guarentee you will love.. her link is also listed on this page) anyway.. here is my baby girl now.. Isabel~our down syndrome princess!

And from the description.. 

Beautiful Teal glass over silver make these babies sparkle. They remind me of laying down under the trees and seeing the sun shining thur the leaves when I was a kid. To this day it is one of the prettiest things I have ever seen. There are 11 round beads in this set ranging 8-13mm in diameter. The tree focal is unflipable and hand shaped (no press used)It measures 16mm wide (hole to hole) and 21mm tall (top to bottom).

*Pictures of actual beads, taken in natural light, enlarged to show detail.*

All are nicely shaped, quality beads, hand made on 1/16″ mandrels.

All of my lampwork beads are individually made by me in my home studio. I use Moretti glass from Italy and MAPP gas for ultimate color. All beads are kiln annealed for strength and durability.

 Last but certainly not least, BelleBeads has more than beads!!
