Mooner's Rock Sets...I think it's time for another project

Monday, January 31, 2011

There's the eye candy...I'm pretty sure you won't be seeing this series any time soon.  Sometimes, I get on a roll (series) and over do it.  I am sooooo done with making these beads.  They are out of my system but I will return in a future date.  They just look great with stone and metal. 

I've still got two piles of beads that I need to get photographed but...I'm photographed out today.  I think I'm must missing painting.  Which it looks like I won't be doing for the next couple of days either.  I've got a pile, I mean a huge...mongo pile of jewelry to get cleaned.  First Friday is coming up and I haven't even started getting things done.  Oh's just the nature of the beast for the self-employed.  There are days, that I miss the days that I worked for someone else.  Mostly when I've either worked a long day...or when I'm sick.  Who am I going to call in sick to...nobody.  :-)   It's easier most of the time but I'm glad I do what I do. 

We have a huge snow storm coming in tonight....I am soooooooo done with snow...and hopefully will be gone by Thursday morning.  Yippy, skippy...more snow, ice, and sleet.   Geez, it's already icy on the back deck. 

Ok....time to light the fire in the fireplace and sip some tea.

Later Gators...stay warm and safe!

New Etsy Treasury

Since I've been back on Etsy, my beady babies have been in several Treasuries.  I finally figured out how to share them.  Anyway, here's some eye candy....

This afternoon, after an airport run, I'm going to process some pictures and up load on Etsy.  All the beads are from the Mooner's Rock Series...which also includes some minis.  After this batch...I'm taking a break from the series.  It's time to move on to another idea that I have.

Later Gators!

More lampwork beads...

I have been on the you can tell.  I've had a great response with the Mooner's Rock Series.  Thank you!  Also thank you for all the suggestions, requests, and customs. 

Hopefully, I will get all the sets together in the next day or two...then it's Etsy time! 

I'm off to the torch!!!

Mooner's Rock Sets...more Lampwork Bead sets

Monday, January 24, 2011
 I spent last night working on beady phototgraphy...the bain of my existance.  I has gotten better for me.  Bob (the hubby) worked on my computer on Saturday, then again on Sunday.  So Photoshop is much quicker, which makes a huge difference in processing photos.  I don't much of anything to the photos, I really don't know the software well enough...I really need it to size the photos and to store them in some sort of order. 
 The Mooner's Rock series seem to be a hit.  I can understand why in some ways...they are affordable, organic, mix & match, and fit in with many different jewerly designs. 

I would like to see some of the designs that my customers create with them. Mmmm....maybe I need to make me a set to see what I come up with too. :-) So's packing up all the beady babies so they can be shipped to their new homes.'s to the torch today...I've got to turn into a bead making machine. :-) Not really...I'm only kidding there. If this ever turns into a production gig, it's time for me to get a 9-5. There are times that I've wondered about that though.. I remember what it was like to have the typical was easier. Being self-employed isn't what it's cracked up to be. It's a lot of's also working when I didn't feel like too. I think it's even harder when it involved creativity. There are just sometimes that no matter how I try, the mojo just doesn't flow. Then I have to pick up and work on other aspects of the job.


I've learned not to force it.  If I know that I've got to get beads made and just can't make it happen...I normally will at least melt some spacers.  It nothing flows within an hour, which is rare for me, I hang it up and come back the next day.

Over the years...when I think of the number of beads, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, pots, vases, paintings, and all the other pieces that I've created....I wonder were the ideas come from..  Bet there's no one clear answer, unless Jung does it for you.  Anyway...where is the well or spark within each one of us? 

Ok...that's getting a bit deep for a blog...I'm off to get some work done!
Later Gators!
