the beading yogini-oh my it's gooey! NOT FOR SALE

Another ultra fine day in the Mojave Desert. This piece was a reworked focal for a fabulous person named Dr. Clarissa. She takes great care of the critters at the nursery and has been especially good to my lil critter. Many small lampwork beads for a BIG THANKS>Big thanks.

Flowered Almond Earrings

What can I say, messing around with wire again when I should be working. Oh wait playing around with wire is working if you are a wire wrapper. It's all so twisted sometimes.

Black and Blue Lampwork Woven Bracelet

This bracelet was made using a technique from Stephanie Sersich. I think it's called Treasures style bracelet. Using waxed linen and cotton and weaving the beads. The Beading Yogini.

Star Stacks and Serged Silk Ribbons

Yes. I do it all or try to do it all. Make the beads and the ribbons and dye the ribbons too. It has finally cooled off, but I've been too busy to play with fire. Hiking and visting a friend on Mount Charleston, subbing a few yoga classes, a road trip to Santa Barbara and working at Cactus Joe's. It's all good!

Swirling Dervish Turquoise Pendant

Yes, yet again, another wicked wire wrap. I really like turquoise and wire wrap is my first love when it comes to jewelry creation. I guess it's the free form aspect that draws me to wire wrap. I also exhibit "controlled fidgeting" behavior. So it gives me something to constructively fidget with and wha-LA!
