In seeing and reading these pages of Beaded Jewelry you are seeing my journey as it progresses. All of my friends who make and sell wonderful jewelry and beads, will tell you that I resisted getting into jewelry for a loooong time. Of course now they jovially remind me EVERY DAY that I used to say “oh, I don’t make jewelry.” “I’m NEVER going to make jewelry.” And other things like “I only make small things with beads to put on my cards.” “I don’t need another hobby.” You are sharing my emergence from that chrysalis out into the world of putting your creativity out for viewing and critique.
The trigger for this most recent explosion of design and energy was a Jackie Pavelka trunk show at White Fox Beads which included Vintage Buttons. I cannot tell you what happened other than I saw, I bought, I got busy, it turned into a full blown Saga! The buttons were awesome and completely inspired me. I plan to write a piece for each of the initial button creations with the intent of extending my own abilities for explanation and description. Hopefully the images will be so good I don’t have to stretch too far.
These are the titles I gave to the pieces – as I write each post I’ll link back here so they are all in one place:

The Great Door
24K Go Button
Till next time. Enjoy the process. J
