Blooming Roses and Car Shows

Volume 12 Issue 6, June 2015

What's New in June?

Doing some spring/summer cleaning in preparation of new beads, canes and finished jewelry. This means that I have been going through stored boxes and containers that are just filled with craft supplies and things that I once thought I would use like findings and other finishing parts. I guess I am going to be doing some craft auctions.

As part of my reorganizing, I had a chance to not only clean up all my work space and get my polymer clay in order, but to start working on getting my photos and artwork culled and ready to be uploaded to print sites. I got one of those auxiliary floppy disk drives, so I can not get all my old work off of the hundreds of floppy disks and maybe give them new life. I have been playing with graphics and Photoshop since the mid 90s, as well as designing fractals.

Here are a couple of the new prints going onto the website shortly. They are from my series “Scenes from a Car Show”.

More Beads: Roses are blooming everywhere around me, and I have been very busy putting them onto beads. It seems like as soon as I get some beads done, they are being packed up and off to the post office.

Focal Beads: New flat backed cabochons have been finished and finally put on the site. I worked on these for quite awhile before getting them done.

Art Prints: I am adding prints and other products to the site that feature my art and photography. I am also including a digital art section.

You will find all of my beads, canes and finished jewelry on my website.

Until next month,

Julie & Blu



Things to Look Forward To:

New Products:

Watches: I am making new rose beads to add to watches, and I am considering creating bead kits with the watches so you can make your own.

Thimbles: I am working on getting some new thimbles created. I only have two left, and I want to add another dozen or so to the website.

Bangle bracelets: It took me a long time, but I finally got the blanks built to finish my smaller bangle bracelets. They are a lot of work to build from scratch and take a considerable amount of time, but they are ready for me to decorate with flowers and such.



Oh, and by the way!
