New beads, bracelets, and earrings, Oh My!

These lovely beads and the ones in the next photo are "Jodie" beads made by Jodie Marshall. You can access her sites by clicking on the link at the right side of my blog. We got to see her sweet (and very sleepy) grandson, Aidan yesterday also! So beautiful!

Today's entry has the new stuff in our beading world! This is a witch bead that Chris made. She is actually his second one, as he sold his first one before we got the picture taken of it! He is just having fun, working on his technique and really likes making the odd characters that come out of his head. Above are his really cool mushrooms that he has already sold one of also. Thanks to Carla for taking the pictures of the 'shrooms when we were have camera issues. Carla at beads and botanicals has been very encouraging, and Jodie Marshall also gave Chris some great advice on bead making when we visited with her on Saturday in Grand Island.

This is the shrunken head dude which Chris not only made the bead, but designed and strung the bracelet with the bead wrapped clasp also. Man is he talented!

Another picture of the shrunken dude, up close!

This is a bracelet set that was made with green and red garnets, Chris spacers in a lovely brick red color, and silver jump rings as a touch of silver. I really loved this one so much that I bought up the rest of the green and red garnet that Carla had at the shop.

What a wonderful bunch of stuff to admire. It is such a treat to see the things both of you create!
