New stuff!

Wow.  Those snow days we had sure were creative ones.  I completed my 'The Heart Has Reasons that Reason Cannot Know" pendant - the first photo.  I wore this yesterday already.  I think it's going to comfortable - and not too heavy, which I wondered about with that big bronze piece. 
The second photo is 'Save a Tree'.  It's a brooch - which I understand are back in style this season.  I've sold almost everyone I have - ALL of the ones with faces.  Next up - a PINK one!
Lastly - and one that was a last minute creation that I didn't even know I was going to complete when I started it - "DragonRest".
I've had the agate slice with Brass dragon attached for awhile - just didn't know what I'd do with him.  Voila!  He's a tribute to a dragonfly that seems to visit me each summer in my garden - he's browns, and dark bronze colors - very dark, and VERY handsome. 
I posted all of these on Facebook too - so sorry for the redundancy!  Just don't know who's reading what!
Thanks to Lisa Crone at ABeadADay (http://www.abeadaday.blogspot.com/) for the great book - "A Bead in Time".  Pick up a copy - there's lots of great ideas, tips and treasures to be found inside.  That's the second blog contest I've won recently - guess I better go enter a few others.  And speaking of entering - I've taken the plunge and entered "Use the Muse IV" - the contest that has us creating with secret focal pieces.   I can't wait to see what we'll be creating with this time!  Check out Scarlett's blog and see if there's still time for YOU to enter - http://www.thebeadersmuse.com/
It's a teaching day today - busy, busy.....

Thanks, all of you, for your kind words. Isn't beading a beautiful expression of joy? I hope that all of my pieces hold a joyous energy that can be felt by all who wear them.
