On My Desk

I'm busy getting ready for my one and only holiday show in two weeks.  I thought I'd share with you some beads that are on my desk and being worked into designs.  These aren't paired up in any particular order.  My jewelry lately is a mix of bright muted colors and earth tones mixed with pewter and brass.  Lots of birds, nests, leaves, messages, words, chain and keys.

Left to Right:

•Lockets, skeleton keys.  

•Vintage brass
•Natural history and woodland forest themes and animals, namely birds, owls, squirrels, hedgehogs, chipmunks, bunnies, butterflies, feathers, nests, eggs, acorns, leaves, trees, branches, wood-grain, and natural colors.

•Colors: Gold, silver grays, greens, mint, turquoise, and robin egg blues, bright reds, honey and yellows, deep berry varieties.

They are all beautiful, I wish I could attend the show. My favourite is the leaf pendant.

Loving it all!
I need to get my keys on. And those colors you mentioned are my go-to. Good to know!
Enjoy the day!

Wow, what beautiful beads! I LOVE the hedgeies! I used to have one :D

Oh thanks so much for posting the trends! It's so helpful to have it summed up in just a few quick sentences!

Much love,

Oh my goodness. Here I am on a Friday night just prowling the blogs and I see one of my pendants. You may indeed have one of the very last of those as that glaze is being phased out. I do love all of the materials you are playing with.

So many lovelies! I'm very curious to see what you create out of them!

What beautiful beads and components! I'll bet the inspire loads of inspiration.

If you have too many (and it looks like you do) you can certainly send them my way. I wouldn't want you to get overwhelmed by them all and stifle that creativity! I'm looking out for you---really!
