Friday April 4th

Last night's Ballet experience was really wonderful. The St. Petersburg Ballet did a beautiful Romeo and Juliet. I really enjoyed it. My husband....sleeping about 3/4 of the way through. Well, what did I expect really. Poor guy.
I don't know how he could have been comfortable enough to sleep! The seats in the Stanley theater about the most uncomfortable seats I've had to sit in. My poor knees were physically jammed into the back of the seat in front of me. If I wasn't such a chicken, I would have moved 5 rows down to a row of empty seats where there were no seats in front of them. That would have been so much better, but I'm just not a law breaker.

Anyhoo, yesterday I ordered a book I've been waiting a long time for. Simply Modern Jewelry
by Danielle Fox. I will blog more about it when I get it.
Hopefully Amazon will ship quickly and the mailmen and women will be On the Ball.
Look how pretty this piece is on the cover! I think that's what drew me in to want to buy it! If you know where I can buy that clasp, let me know, because it's delicious! I am quite attracted to Bees in jewelry (ever since the most recent Stringing came out, featuring Bee beads) but the funny thing is, I AM DEATHLY AFRAID OF BEES. Like I will RUN.... FAST, if a bee is around me. It's a knee jerk reaction that I cannot control. Bee in the car, TOTAL PANIC. Bee in the house, I get the heck out of dodge. I don't know why I have this fear, because I've only been stung 2 times in my whole life, back when I was a kid. Guess that was enough!
Hoping to do some tutorials over the weekend, and just get in the studio to get some beauties made up. Been collecting beads the last few weeks. I oughtta have something to work with now!

  1. Hey! I am scared of bees too! Well wasps and hornets. I sat on one when I was a kid (OW!) and stepped on one in college. That one really hurt and made my toe swell up. I've had other minor run ins, nothing major, but I act like a big scaredy baby whenever I see them!

    That book looks great, can't wait to see it! I do believe it is a Green Girl clasp, but don't see it on their site. It's in their gallery though, so you might wanna email them:


  2. That is a pretty piece on the cover.

    I'm not afraid of bees. Spiders are my terror. One time driving down the road a spider came down from the visor and was dangling right in front of me. I almost ran right off the road! Not good!

    That clasp is gorgeous.

  3. I can't wait to see what you come up with from the inspiration of this book - I'm sure there will be fabulous pieces to come! Have to tell you my Heart Breaker necklas has become my favorite piece and I wear it all the time. People comment on how beautiful it is when I do wear it. A jewelry designer star rising ....


  4. Hi Christina! SPIDERS too, scare me! I cannot kill a spider, if you paid me! Which also drives my husband nuts! Oh I'm sure there's a few things he loves about me!

    I am so glad you are enjoying your necklace! Thanks for coming back to the blog! :) Nice to see you again!
