will you vote?

Took a breaking from bunny beading, and went for training for election day.  No.. it wasn't to learn how to vote... :P  I will be working a polling station on election day.  Should be interesting, and give me some money, and that is always a good thing  :).
Now back to beading - almost done the bracelet.

bunny bracelet

Finished the bunny bracelet this morning.  And am quite pleased with how it turned out.  I completed the band last night, but had to wait till this morning to pick out colors for the carrot.  I am decidedly short on orange beads!  Probably because orange is not one of my fave colors... it works for some things of course,  and it's always good to have at least one of every color... for projects just like this!  The pattern is from the Fusion Bead site, inspiration page.
So check it out.. tell me what you think!

Got an order today for a very special pair of earrings.  My neighbours prom is coming up, so we designed some earrings based on a pic she found on the net, and swarovski crystals to match her dress.  Add some silver, she is gonna be stylin!  Now, just have to get the crystals ordered.
Still haven't heard back from curling bracelet lady.  I have the new crystals for her bracelet and would like to get that done for her.
Have been working on a few more patterns and design ideas, but working on a peyote bunny pattern from Beading Daily!.  It'll be cute when it's done.  Will most likely end up giving it to mom  :)

Did a little rearranging of the blog.  You can now see some of the items currently available for sale at my Artfire store.   Hope this helps a bit.

I've had a lot of ideas popping into my head for the last couple days.  I've had to actually write them down in my notebook.  With any luck, I've included enough info and drawings it will all make sense to me when I get around to doing those pieces.  Mostly bracelets and necklace ideas.  Always looking for inspiration, and hopefully my design notes will improve. 
I recently downloaded free bead design software, and have been using that to do some peyote patterns for some cuffs and dog collars I want to do.  It's not too bad to work with... and the price was right  :)

pic of the 80's flashback

ok, if I'm asking you to give your opinion, it makes sense that I actually include a pic for you to view.  So,
I finally got my camera software downloaded and just successfully loaded my first pics to this laptop!
Now you can tell me if this pattern sends you back to the 80's ... or was it just me?!?

80's flashback?

Ok.. is it just me?  or does anyone else get a flashback to the 80's when you see this lasted peyote collar I've just completed?!
A triangle pattern kind of morphed into a zigzag pattern, and this was the result.  The pale color is really a nice transparent seafoam that didn't photo very well in these shots.
