Use 'em or lose 'em

If I have said it once, I have said it a hundred times... beads that don't get bought up are gonna get used up!! There is no "waiting and seeing"... you got to get the beads when you can. What am I talking about? Bead Box Beads, silly. If sets don't sell right off the bat, then the sit in my brain and stir... ideas for what to make with them start to swirl around... and sooner or later, I am going to mark them "sold out" so I can make something with them.

Recognize these beads? They were in last weeks update... now they are in a new necklace!! I haven't thought of a good name for it yet. Though, I had one this morning. The fact that I can't remember it a few hours later tells me it isn't a good name. I am also debating if I should oxidize (antique) the wire too. Hmmm... for now I am leaving it. I like how it sparkles the way it is.

In other news, I have made an executive decision... I will hence forth (unless something awesome happens) be taking the weekends "off" from blogging. I don't know why, but for some reason I have been struggling with things to write about. The ideas just aren't there (or maybe they have been and today I just feel like they aren't). I think giving my brain some down time a few days away will be good for it. Don't worry, I won't be writing less, I promise. When I made this decision, I also decided that I will put in a better effort M-F to make sure I have things to show you everyday. We'll see how it goes. And besides... you should be sitting in the house on the computer reading my blog on the weekends... you should be spending time with your families. Leave the blog surfing for when you are bored at work :D LOL... I bet your boss' will love that.

I have been plugging away all weekend at building up a collection of beads for a very cool, very new wire necklace design. I have been building on it here and there for a week or so now... and I think it is going to take a few weeks more. But hopefully, by the time my new wire order arrives, I will be ready to finish it up.

Alrighty... that's all I got for today... any comments on the new necklace anyone?

Neat design. The colors are cool.
They would neat in fall colors too.
When will you be putting your left over jewelry from your show in the jewelry shop or are you putting it in the gallery.
Will you be putting your wool cuffs in the jewelry shop too??

Wow, is the word of the day for your new necklace. Your new ideas are truly amazing.
I love the swirling of the wire.

Just LOVE this new necklace!!! What an incredible design. And I agree...I like it shiny too. Goes with the "icy" theme.

I loved these beads when they were listed in the bead box. I was tempted to buy them but I am not a jewelry maker so I would have had to send them to someone else to make something for me. I am glad that you created this necklace. I like it shiney also. Leave it as it is.
