My Bloomin' Mind



Do you ever have ideas that you can't tell if they are really good or really stupid? I had that happen last night, and I am thinking I have lost my bloomin' mind. I think the long hours and endless jewelry creating has finally wore my muse out. Then again, maybe she just whacked me on the head with something good. You'll need to let me know!

See, I have been taking old things apart here and there to recycle them into new things. I had a small little flower disc on my desk that I couldn't stop fondling yesterday. So says to myself... "let's just make a whole mess of flower discs". The glass was flowing great and I ended up making about 18 little flower discs. I strung them up into a Playground bracelet this morning and I really can't decide what I think of it. I love the colors, that is for sure. I had a rod an amazing cobalt blue color mixed with trans teal, turquoise and a new true opaque teal color. The detail is hard to see in the photo, it just looks like a big blue blob to me, but in person you can see each little flower. Hmmm... maybe I should make a daisy one?

Anyway, while sitting there torching away (worrying about the suicidal insects) I thought... I should do a bunch of these for dangles on lariats too. Again... I can't tell if it is a good idea or a silly one. I think it is my inner flower child coming out. Or I have now entered the "Flower Power" stage of my retro inspired designs, lol.




I also made this little goodie yesterday(strung it this morning), "No More Chores". That new true teal is really yummy. It maybe a new addiction. I am thinking it would be cool to layer light turquoise over this teal... hmmmmmm.



Alrighty, we need to have a little talk about the current auction "Pinball Wiz". You all have me really concerned. There is only one lonely bid. These beads are really really cool people!! And they weren't easy to make. Making all those lines criss and cross while keeping them really straight... that doesn't just happen by itself. I hope you will take a minute to go check out the auction again... oogle at all the photos... then BID on them!! THEY ARE TOTALLY WORTH IT!!

Jacob and I have a 6:30 appointment with one Mr. Harry Potter... I CAN'T WAIT!! Are you gonna see it?

I love all the flowers, but I think they look especially beautiful on the lariats.

Kerry,
the last bracelet is WAY COOL!!!!
I loved the colors, the textures, etc.
The flowers are just sweet! I love them all.

Are you planning to sell some of those flower beads or the beads in the last bracelet?

Kerry said...

Thanks Holly and Gaby...

If I still have the bracelet after this weekend Holly, you can inspect it. LOL.

Gaby, have you been to my website? I have a "Bead Box Buyables" page for purchaing beads. There is nothing there right now because of show prep, but I hope to have beads more regularly in the coming weeks. I take suggestions, though you never know what I am in the mood to make!! Send me an email to get on my mailing list and get the scoop on updates.

Hi Kerry,
I am already in your mailing list, thank you. Whenever I come here to check new stuff, I just realize they are sold out! Anyway, I will be checking your wonderful blog to see if you have flowers.

Love the beads on the lariats! I think they'd be pretty on pieces of colored leather too (that would be REALLY flower-powery! ;-)). Will you be selling individual flowers on ebay? I'd love one as a pendant!
