Still alive...somewhat...

Real life has been keeping me from blogging as much as I should.
Been fighting with some major depression issues, which unfortunately tends to make me hibernate from the world, online and real life. I'm almost to the point of going back to see someone to get back on some type of medication to help have enough energy to actually do things, but I REALLY hate taking medication.

Need to get back to beading.

Long time no Post

I had to take a break on here, simply to try to get back to life. Sometimes that hermit instinct takes over and you just have to go with it. But I bring you 2 Lady Pins: the Midnight Blue Lady PinMidnight Blue Beaded Goddess Lady Pin
and the Red Lady Beaded Pin:

Both are available for sale at my Etsy Shop, with a few other things.... Decided they all needed a better home than being stored away in my finished beadwork box.
I hope to have a few more updates coming soon.

Still Alive

For some reason, I usually find the Spring months as a time for hibernation rather than the wakening months most people view it as. I retreat back into my apartment and hide from the world for a bit.
More often, I find myself "fidget beading." Where you get an idea, start working on it, but the muse runs away half way into it....leaving you with bits and bobbles all over the place with no direction? Sigh...

This was made for a swap at my local bead store. We have a group of ladies that get together every few months to do a swap with a theme. This theme was supposed to be "Springy Necklace." I thought the labdorite roundels, with their little flashes of blue, much like my recent fidgeting, was a perfect fit.

The goddess pendant hooks onto the copper clasp, so you can remove her if you just want a simple necklace.

Bronze Age -ish

Trying to spark some new ideas, I grabs some colors that are not normally in my pallet and just played around with them to see what would happen....

Muse where are you?

Apparently my muse has decided to take an extended vacation and forgot to warn me.
Normally, it only lasts for a week or two at the moment, but this has progressed for a few months now.

I do have a few pieces that I'm not too happy with, that I need to photograph, but here's hoping the New Year finds new inspiration.
