Well I'm back! I've been away from the site for a while now and am happy to be reconnecting. I haven't done much beadwork lately as I've taken up a new hobby: lampwork beads.Still making jewelry a lot - just using different and new materials. Really enjoying California but ready to move back to my homestate of Texas at the end of this year.
I live on Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands and work for SpaceX. Love my job, love living in paradise and love all kinds of crafts. LisaKwaj and Kris K lured me into beading and now it's an addiction! Yippee, yet another expensive hobby!!! haha The big new thing in my life ... I'm a grandma now!!! Life is good, God is great :o)
I love the colors of the sea more than any others ~ blue, green, aqua, turquise, lime, purple. Silver beads or charms and clear glass accents are a fav in any pieces too. I really like a beachy or bohemian style (see favorite posts pics). Anything that makes you think of sun, sand and sea is perfect! I also love earthy tones mixed with greens. Don't like plastic beads. This is all new to me so I'm thrilled with every piece I see.
I have pierced ears and I like shorter earrings that don't drop more than one inch and a half. My bracelet size is 7 3/4'' and I prefer 20' - 22" necklaces. No allergies. Bead weaving, focal beads, stringing, sewing, chunky, delicate... it's all good :o)
