Weekly Happenings..... October 13,2012

Well at least it was a productive week.   I finished my version of Sherry Serrafini's "Hot Dots" as pictured in the Bead and Button for August 2012.
As always, I so enjoy working on Sherry's designs.  The Donut focal is from Birdsong Beads in Andrews, North Carolina and I found this one during our July Mid South Bead Retreat.  It worked perfectly for my first sequin adventure.
I had received two ( 2 ) antique brass focal pieces, well actually three but the third one needs its faux
gemstone replaced, and decided to finish them instead of viewing them just sitting there.  The amber piece
will go to PK, my sister and I will keep the Fire Opal piece for myself as these were found in our Mother's
jewelry box after her passing.

Topaz for PK

Fire Opal for Catherine
I have found there is one item I would really like someone to fabricate and that is brass split rings.  I'll have to work on that.

I also made great strides on learning how to add a gadget today to the blog.  See, there is hope.  And I finally started to work on the website:  Stay tuned, I am learning to link the Site, the blog, the Facebook page and the ETSY page.  Wow, work is really starting to interfere with beading.

The Annual Heidi Challenge is about to begin......The Sitting Owl arrived and Staples is finishing up the spiral binding on Heidi's " The Spirit of Bead Embroidery ".  Stay tuned.


  1. Beautiful pieces, and such precious keepsakes!

  2. Hi Catherine,
    Beautiful cuff! I love Sherry's designs too. The two necklaces are gorgeous and wonderful keepsakes.
