catching up is more time consuming than keeping up, so why i procrastinate i don't know. i think it's because i always seem to have something more interesting to do, than what i know i should be doing. i have this marketing plan in my head but i'm far too distracted and yes, lazy to implement it as i know i should.
i've had the beads used in these two bracelets, probably from when i started collecting beads. the first one has a copy of a "pandora bed" and two spacers which were R45 each, so there is almost no profit in the bracelet being sold for R120. The second bracelet is made up of various glass beads and some ethiopian silver.
this wrap bracelet was an order from one of Joce's clients. i and Denise, are very happy with the result. there is a combination of, moonstone, freshwater pearls, bone, shell, czech glass and matt cream mayuki beads. the bracelet is approximately a meter long and can also be worn as a wrap necklace.
the design for the opera length necklace began with the porcelain bead. then came the linen cord tassle, the howlite cross, howlite discs, various painted porcelain beads and czech glass rocailles.
the silver metal amulet is from a friends bead shop. i've paired it with porcelain beads purchased from the bead shop in melville, hematite discs, black glass beads and black suede leather cord.
and finally for this session, a large glass flower bead strung on leather and linen cord with a "pandora bead". on the other side are glass beads strung on 19 strand beading wire.
there would of been more, but i've discovered the best time to upload pictures is after 23h00. they upload in a flash. otherwise during the day it takes frustrating hours and plenty of data.
so thanks for visiting, any comments and questions are most welcome. hopefully i'll be here again soon as there is still much to show.
