Musings and a bracelet

I am at an age where you think life would be slowing down. Nope, the older you get the faster time flees.   But I'm ok with that other than not getting not enough time to bead. I did however complete this bracelet for one of my cousins.  This shade of Delica required natural sunlight to illuminate the colors.

And in looking at my pictures I did this one for my best friend:

I'll post from time to time which is the normal for me.

Can post to my blog

Back on 04-16 I had this problem:What the ?!*%#

  I have no idea what has gone on in / but I'm not happy.  I have two blogs from 2012 and now this one.  I can find all the blogs in between but can't create a new blog from that link.  I don't know what the European changes are and I really don't care.
  So I don't know how much longer I will post here but I did want to post my three newest bracelets.
  Two are peyote patterns I purchased off Etsy (which is also undergoing changes and many sellers are unhappy with the changes).  The Solstice bracelet was a Bead and Button monthly entry.
      Nevertheless I enjoyed beading them and hope you enjoy looking at them.
Now my blogging is functional ..... at least for today

Solstice contest

The piece I created for the Solstice contest held by Facet Jewelry Making.   Fun piece, I enjoyed making this,  a bit late in posting.

Some days

  Well  I had a post that was supposed to load at 12:30 AM this morning. It was part of Andrew Thornton's Allegory Gallery Magic Potion reveal.  Where the post went, I don't know and the piece was a gift for a friend so I don't have it anymore and I can't locate the picture.  Such is the wonder of the internet.

Magic Potion Reveal

So I purchased one of Andrew Thornton's kits, the Magic Potion and the reveal is October 27th.  I really haven't done much beading over the last two years due to health issues.  I did complete the piece and working with Lucite is different.  I added the potion bottle after doing a bit of staining on it so it would go better with the components. So enjoy.

Great giveaway from

Here is the item at my Pinterest:

I'd really like to win this - great for crimps, clasps, wire and tools. 
It's been a bit of a roller coaster year but life is improving this fall.  So here's a piece I recently completed for a friend.  Not fancy but sweet - much like Melissa for whom it is for.  Done in 11o' Delicas.  I am back to beading and that feels great.
