Ware do I buy my beads and things.

BeadwareIL on Etsy and on Ebay - or I just drive to her house! Like I went to today and yesterday! I had a blast, as it is always fun to fondle beads!

IDK it has been one of those weeks, you know (well maybe you don't ) when you get so many ideas in your head and you just want to create but can't afford to! Well, being at my friends store with all that inspiration surrounding me, those beads she has from all around the world, the CRYSTALIZED™ Swarovski Elements OH YUMMY, the Bali, the Czech glass, the vintage lucite and she has so so much more! It would of broke my bank, so with all of that I could or couldn't buy these past two days, I went home to shop in my own store in the basement!

Sometimes you can just turn an old style around and give it some fresh new life.

PS:! If you get the chance check out my friends shop on Etsy and or Ebay, she has quality goods and fabulous customer service - She also needs like maybe 3 more customers or whoever and that could be you to sign up for her newsletter on Ebay. She would crack 1000 then! (you have to sign in go to her store scroll down to the bottom left side and you will see her sign up form) -- thanks in advance.

Now go have yourself a great evening and thanks for stopping by!

peace, vonna

If I could I would...

If I could I would but I can't!

What I can tell you is that this has to do with jewelry, a necklace in particular, a camera, a tree and me!
I know don't tease right?? Sorry, you will just have to wait... for now...

Just so you don't think you have wasted your time at this moment as you stumbled upon my blog here is a pretty piece of eye candy 'just 4 u'...

After many months off on a much needed sabbatical, traveling for my sanity, fiddling and rearranging my house and my studio; and finally getting used to the empty nest syndrome, and I don't mean the "Ozzie and Harriet" way.  I decided last night to return to what really motivates me best.
creating and designing bracelets from artisan lampwork beads and things!
I hope you like it.. thanks for stopping by!

peace,
vonna

Bead Soup Party Necklace Listed On Etsy

This necklace is one of many creations I designed as a participant of the Bead Soup Blog Party Hop during the month of September 2011 hosted by Lori Anderson.

Dangled from the unique antique brass chain is a hand painted handmade ceramic art lentil made by Bonnie Polinski, a vintage striped Czech glass bead I had found in my stash of supplies which hangs from a paper bead I made especially for this challenge. Two faceted topaz rounds, one left over Picasso Czech roundell and one beautiful honey drop of sun Swarovski.

Dangles are wrapped in sterling head-pins that I made myself and brass head pins.

Brass Chain measures 24”” long with a substantial brass toggle.
