New! Zodiac Charm Bracelets

I love the zodiac.  I’d always been interested in astrology, because of the way certain behaviors are examined and defined.  I always thought it was kind of weird to tie behavior to individuals born in a specific time frame, but I meet people, find out their sign, and then I see those traits in them,… Continue reading New!

I’m Knot Crazy (Well, I Might Be)

Here’s the thing about macramé: I love doing it.  I thought it was cool in the 70’s, but I wasn’t interested in it back then.  It wasn’t until I was reading beading magazines and teaching myself to make jewelry much later on that I considered attempting it myself.  I think it looks great, and there… Continue reading I’m Knot Crazy (Well, I Might Be)

Goals and Expectations

I am one of those list-making goal-setters.  I really love crossing things off a list, too.  So satisfying, right?  And when it’s a long list with a bunch of stuff crossed off, don’t tell me that doesn’t feel great.  It makes me want to accomplish even more, just to cross ’em off.  And I have… Continue reading Goals and Expectations

Beaded Eyewear… Continue reading Beaded Glasses Thingy

Once Again, It’s Time To Decorate Your Feets

I noticed that I last remarked upon the need to decorate one’s ankles and feet with jewelry a year ago, at the end of May.  It seemed like the sunny weather got an earlier start last year, didn’t it?  It was cloudy two days ago, here in Southern California, and raining two days before that,… Continue reading Once Again, It’s Time To Decorate Your Feets

Wildly Impossible, Doing It Anyway

(So many purples and some Batman means some awesome beading is about to happen!) I’m the sort of person who tends to choose small projects, which I then complicate into big projects, and either come to my senses and scale the project down or move on.  Sometimes it’s difficult to choose the best technique, depending on what I want to play… Continue reading Wildly Impossible, Doing It Anyway

Summer Is The Time To Dress Your Feets With Juicy Ankle Jools

It’s starting to feel like summer out here, and that makes me think about anklets, and if I do too much of that, then I have to make some.  I think anklets are sexy.  Exotic.  I don’t see them so much in the United States, but on trips to Papeete, Hawaii, and Barbados, they were… Continue reading Summer Is The Time To Dress Your Feets With Juicy Ankle Jools
