Some bright colored Baubles.......

  ...........were also finished up in time to make the trip to #STITCHESSouth
 Since the Market Place opens this afternoon for the attendees I sure hope a few of you will stop by the booth and see all the new things I have made since last year in Atlanta.
The baubles of course had to have matching earrings.

Some purple necklaces.

 I made this simple little purple necklace.
 And then had to make one a bit more complicated.
And earrings to match.  All headed for #STITCHESSouth

Another necklace...........

 .............headed to Nashville for #STITCHESSouth
 The parts and pieces for this piece have been together on my work table for ages and ages.  I just finally took some time to make jewelry.
 I just love the soft texture the mat finish beads give the piece.  The stacked blue lampwork flower just stands out.
And of course we have earrings.

A new necklace

 I have been working this last week to make some new jewelry to take with me to Stitches South.
 I finished up this necklace and earrings to match just yesterday in time to take some pictures to show it off before heading for Nashville.
 This one does not have a name yet but some how seems to belong in my Suessology Series.  I think it  is the black with the bright colors that makes me think this.
With a big necklace I usually just make some little earrings and these cuties are all of about an inch long.

Something New at Stitches South...

 .......a stitch marker swap.  Stitches South is a great knitting event that we have been vendors at the last few years.  This year for the first time we are going to have a big stitch marker swap.  There is a big thread on Ravelry all about both Stitches and about the swap.
The first batch of beads I could not seem to make up my mind what I wanted to make up for the swap and the second batch I did some of my favorite saucer beads in brights.  I think I am at about 130 done so will probably make about 20 more.

New Necklace

 The beads for this necklace have been laying on my work table for almost a year all set aside to make this necklace up.  I seem to not be giving myself time to make new jewelry.
 That is something that I just really must change.  I love making jewelry. 
I did get this piece ready in time to bring it to Omaha for the show.  So come and see it for yourself. It is so much nicer in person. I just can not seem to take great pictures of these large necklaces.  Of course we have also had rainy drizzly days all week which does not help.
I almost forgot I did make some new earrings to go with the necklace.

Omaha bead Show and kit samples.

 Well we are heading out again to the Omaha Bead Affair and I wanted to catch you up on what I have been doing.  While we were in Minneapolis I sold the last kit sample for my Party Pendant Kit, I of course forgot this and went off to Madison without a single sample to show. 
I set out to make one but four just seemed to pop up off my work table.  Of course my samples are always for sale, I am just making sure I have one to show off this weekend.
