Volume 13 Issue 6, June 2016
All the gardening I had been doing is now starting to payoff with lots of big, brilliant colors in my yard and flower beds. Even some lilies that I planted last year have finally raised their heads and added red and orange daylilies to my little gardens. My blackberry bush from last year yielded exactly TWO ripe blackberries that I have been watering and attending to while patiently awaiting the day when I could bite into them. That day was today, but someone got them before I did. Either a bunny or a bird ate the blackberries off the vine. I guess there is always next year.
Thanks to all these wild colors, my creative side has turned to creating colorful and fun dangling chandelier earrings. They are appropriately titled the Candy Drop Collection and consist of mouthwatering colors and sparkly dangles. This is a limited collection, so when they are gone, well, they are gone for good. Don’t they look good enough to eat?
More Beads: Individual focal beads are my focus along with chandelier components.
Watches: Lots of new watches are now available. While most of them feature my handmade polymer clay beads, some are made strictly from Swarovski elements and agates because I thought they were pretty!
Thimbles: A dozen new collectible thimbles are now available. I went on a made creative binge of thimbles. Lots of flowers and butterflies. Get them while you can!
You will find all of my beads, canes and finished jewelry on my website. www.bluemorningexpressions.com
Until next month,
Julie & Blu
Things to Look Forward To:
Hotrod magnets: I am adding hotrod magnets to my shops, and since I only have one finished, I will have to show them off next month.
Focal Beads and Chandelier Components: I am focusing on making individual beads rather than sets for a bit while I play with new techniques. In addition to the chandelier components, I am focusing on bracelet connectors.
Hotrod Calendar: I have one 2017 calendar completed, but I have so many photos that one is just not enough!
