Pine Branches and Pine Cones
I know some of you have seen my pine cones already, but I wanted to show you one of the variations of Branch Bails that I have been making to coordinate with them, my acorns, owls and other Mother Nature items.
You might just call me the new "Branch Manager".
I have been working on ways to coordinate beads to be worn together. It just makes sense, doesn't it? I would think this would be pretty on a copper bead strand as well or many other choices- but I found some not too expensive natural beads that gives it a woodsy feel. (perhaps real "seed" beads?
I'll show you my other lampwork "bails" a little later. Different styles to go with different beads. Animal, nature, funky and fun ones all in various stages right now. They'll be debuting soon. I say, why not? All are made to be worn alone, or with some of your other lampwork treasures.
If you have any special requests, feel free to post or email me. I'm adding to my Etsy shop again after a lot of time off. It felt great with all the teaching I've been doing, but it's time to rock and roll again. I just have too many ideas that are percolating.
See you tomorrow for more blog chatter. And don't forget, I take Saturday off, but return on Sundays so my blog is 6 days a week.
