hurr… long hiatus

Very overdue update.

In the past 2 weeks I went to a rock show in Hendersonville, NC, and picked up a few beads and cabochons. This led me to pull out my jewelry supplies and along the way I ended up with two new necklaces, and several more in mind.

Need better pictures but this will do for now. Top is a necklace I made up on in the midst of working on the black necklace. The salamander is an earring that lost its twin years ago. I love the colors in this one. All beads from my stash.

All but the seed beads and two cones on the black one are from the rock show. The black is snowflake obsidian, and the grays are 2 different unidentified minerals. It was the first time I’ve tried enclosing anything in beading; with no set design in mind, pretty much seat-of-my-pants after I figured out the basic 3-D peyote process.

I’ve also started knitting a hanging dishtowel for a friend, which as a relative knitting newbie, means I’m doing a mitered knit with decreases for the first time. Since I didn’t have the correct size straight needles, it’s materializing on circular needles, which I’ve never really gotten along with before, but they are working well for this project.

You can see two pieces of purple fabric under the knitting in this photo. These are meant for a dress which I hope to begin working on soon!
