A Day Late and a Bracelet Short

In two days I'm leaving for Wisconsin and Chicago for two weeks.  I had planned to take a ton of jewelry with me so I could give it as gifts or sell it.  Needless to say, I've spent so much time watching the Olympics I didn't get everything done that I wanted to.  I'm barely packed and I want to clean the house before I leave so John doesn't have to do anything while I'm gone except take care of Buster and that's a hand full.


I really don't like stringing beads for pendants that I've done in polymer clay.  Kumihimo can be done with or without beads.

This a Randee Ketzel pendant that I did from her tutorial and I wanted something a little more sedate as far as the colors.  It looks different in the picture than it does in the hand.  Now I'm not sure I like the quiet colored necklace.  My sister will give me her opinion whether I want it or not.  LOL

Haven't decided if I like the twisted silver wire wrap on this yet or not.  Looks Southwestern but it covers the pendant.    I like the cord.

Kumihimo bracelets done with white pearl Megatamas and AB crystals.  I need 5 more and here I am posting.  DUH.

My friend Evelyn has a new grand baby.  Her name is Ashlyn and her room is nautical.
This entire fish is made of polymer clay.  It's going to be a wall hanging.  She uses a lot of things for textures.  Can you see the fish fins are made of hearts?  I think this is adorable.

Have a good two weeks.  I'll be back the 14th of August.  I'll be missing my polymer and beads.  OH YEAH, going to miss John and Buster too.  It better cool off back there.  I've had enough heat to last me a long time.

You have been busy, Bonnie! It feels good to put the finishing touches on a project (or several), but we're not always ready to put them to bed and call it done. It's nice to have an honest opinion or two from family, though!
