By The Sea

I haven't physically been to the beach lately but I have been there in my mind.  I enjoyed making these mermaids more than I expected.  I made these over a period of three days.  Each day I would sit down at the torch I just felt like making another mermaid.  They take some time to make and I think I will enjoy developing other tails, bodies, and accessories.  Maybe I will even try a merman!

Just need a bit of flora and fauna to go with whatever I make with my mermaids and other sea related ideas I have yet to make.
Random Sea life

Experimenting with some shells.  They need a bit more work but I am happy with my start.  These were very fun to make!

This next bead is one I made in my class with Libby at the ISGB Gathering.  

I am officially caught up with the beads I have photographed and edited.  I do have jewelry to make this week as well as some new beads.  I hope to have those photographed and ready to share with you soon!

Some exciting news!!!
I will be displaying my beads and jewelry at the Levis Commons art show next weekend in front of Salvatore Capelli Salon 4105 Chapel Drive so stop by and say hello and check out all the great items the Salon will have on display for the event.  I love this art show - not too big, not too small.  Lots of great art and and friendly artists.
