I hope you all had a lovely, spooky day!

The days grow shorter

The pond has leaves floating on the top of it. The trees are getting bare. I'm starting to want to withdraw into myself, and I find that I want to make jewelry. I have house guests this weekend, but I have Monday and Tuesday to myself, and I think I will do a little playing with beads on those days.

Plus the mini photography studio needs to be set up again...

I think it's time to experiment!

The listing continues

I've put all sorts of new items in my eBay shop! I've found some lovely base metal chandelier earring findings, and some great vintage Japanese marble glass leaves.

The earring findings are really beautiful. They're so easy to use to make earrings--just attach hooks to the top, and hang a few crystals on the bottom of each!

Committing to jewelry

I've been so absorbed in selling jewelry supplies that I haven't done much in the way of jewelry recently.

So I've decided to commit myself to listing one piece of jewelry a day in my jewelry Etsy shop. I'll try to keep this up until the end of the year. At worst, it gives me some practice with my photography skills, right?

Jam-packed weekend!

Tomorrow I'll be at the West Michigan Bead Expo in Grand Rapids, MI. And then on Sunday I'll be at the Great Lakes Beadworkers Guild Bead Bonanza in Southfield, MI. I'm running around the house, packing everything, rebagging inventory, and printing out more signs.

Hope to see you all there!

Milwaukee bead show

This Sunday I will be at the Knot Just Beads Milwaukee Bead Show from 10 until 4. It takes place at the Milwaukee Wyndham Hotel near the airport (the address is 4747 S. Howell).

I'm still packing and putting together my merchandise. I'll have some new things and a lot of great closeout beads, as always.

Hope to see you there!
