Not Much Talk, Lots of Pictures

I can't believe how time gets away from me! I was busy working on some custom cards, trying to pack, getting ready for income tax day (argh - the latest in the year we've ever done them!), and all the other stuff that goes on around here; and I haven't had a chance to post anything to this lonely little blog.

So here goes... mostly just pictures this time. Hope you like 'em! :-) (By the way, you can visit my Etsy shop to see more pictures.)

First, the newest version of my Damask cuff, this time using dark kelly green and medium gray. I just keep seeing these colors used together and had to try them out in a cuff.

Second, a Multicolor Puzzle cuff I created in honor of National Autism Awareness Day. I actually had it finished by April 2, but I didn't get the pictures and get it listed until the next day. For every one of these cuffs purchased during the month of April, I'll be donating $25 to the Autism Society of America.

Third, this WILD purple and orange necklace which I named Over the Moon, both as an indication of how I felt about the completed piece and to honor the maker of the lovely lampwork beads I used as the focals, Moon Stumpp (aka mixedmediajewelry). Not only is she a talented lampworker, but she's really really nice. :-)

Fourth, these two bracelets... These aren't in my Etsy shop. They were gifts for some very special people (and they know who they are so I don't have to post it here). I just wanted to show them off! :-)

Ta da! That's it for today's post. If you're finished reading, go check out the Bead Art Originals blog to see all the Items of the Week for this week. There are some wonderful pieces and some great specials!! Here's a sneak peak at the offerings:

Your creations are very beautiful. The blue/green bracelet reminds me of an Amy Butler fabric!
It's gorgeous!
