Happy New Year and welcome to 2012.
I can feel it within me that this is going to be a special year, filled with creativity, glass beads and a new adventure I've begun which is adding leather to my jewelry. Everywhere I look there seems to be beads and woven leather, beads on leather cuff bracelets, beads sewn into leather pouches.... I want to make it all and its going to be an exciting journey.
The leather hides have arrived, vintage tools have been acquired and a few new ones, in addition to my talented wood-working husband creating special tool holding racks for the studio. There is so much to learn, to explore and I am eager to share it with everyone! I find the magic of leather, its warmth and endless design possibilities to be the perfect companion for the colorful, cool glass beads. A marriage made in heaven!
Meanwhile, the new year has started off well with the sale of a Bayleen Bead Necklace! More Bayleen Beads will be available soon and of course, also by special order. Here's a peek at the beauty that has found a new home in Arizona. Thank you~
