Easter is Nearly Here

Finally got my new blog set up after dithering about using the Artfire blog associated with my shop or setting up a WordPress blog here.  Well, WordPress won out.

Things have been pretty much one disaster after another around here with the worst being coping with  a broken arm, but even casted I managed to finish a commission choker for a lovely lady with a special occasion.

So with that project complete I needed some creative time and in the spirit of the season launched headlong into beading easter eggs.  These little monsters suck up a full day each to make, but they are so, so addictive.

Beaded Easter EggsThey are each a confection of Czech firepolish glass, Swarovski crystal and permanent finish galvanized Miyuki seedbeads.  Too late to post in my shop this year, but yummy to look at.
