i need a vacation.








I think this might be a sign.

the beach is calling for me.



Aren't these so cool? I attached the drilled beach stones to the Speckled ceramic discs that Erin of Every Heart Crafts made, using small brass cable chain.











And these earrings were kind of tough to create because of the knotting at the top, but I like how the rocks fan out almost like branches. The Coin beads are handmade ceramic discs from Elaine Ray.


I am headed to Florida in a couple of weeks. Orlando. Gotta do some work for the museum. I hope it's warm there. Because it certainly is NOT warm here and I've got the February blues.

I'm hoping I can find a bead shop in downtown Orlando. Know of any good ones? I'll take recommendations for good food too. I'll be without a car so I'm hoping the area I'm staying will have lots to see within walking distance.

These new earrings are now available in my shop. Just in case the beach is calling your name too.
