Have a great weekend. I am off to veg and bead hee hee.
Hey all you seed beaders and jewelry artist or just want to learn how are learn more about. I am pondering of starting a Lincoln Beader's Group. This group will be for beaders in the Lincoln Nebraska area. Once we have enough interest I am planning on trying to find a location to meet. I think it would be fun if we could figure out and have our own bead / jewelry show. I was thinking of charging a small membership fee to help support activities and the running of the group.
As you can tell from the top of my blog I am getting ready for moving on to the next seasons jewelry items etc. I am now tired of the hot summer and ready to start concentrating on some fall and winter designs. And how about some jewelry for Christmas/holiday season. I will also be going back to my original store Punchies Etc. and start offering hang tags for jewelry and other tags and paper items. Punchies Etc. was my scrapbooking/paper supplies for scrapbooking and paper making. Working on organizing and getting my office ready and I will be off and running working on my new kits, designs, and paper items . Will also be bringing back my polymer clay beads and pendants. So watch for new stuff coming soon.
Hi, I am in the process of developing and putting together beading kits. The kits will teach you how to do peyote and read patterns, you will be able to make some pretty seed beaded earrings called "Loopy Fun" and a stitch bracelet "Funky Fun". As soon as I am done designing the patterns on paper , I am planning on putting together a team of volunteers to try out my patterns to make sure they are easy even for someone who has never beaded before. Eventually I would like to incorporate my designs into home beading and jewelry parties.
I have found a wonderful group Lincoln Handmade Team on Etsy!!! What a great bunch of people. Like I tell my hubby " I have found my people" LOL If you would like to check us out go to etsy.com and search lnkhandmade team We are based in Lincoln Nebraska and surrounding areas. We have had our first meeting which went well and we are off and running. I am so excited had to share :)
Other then that I am working on beadwork entries for the Nebraska State Fair. I got 2nd place last year for a beadwork bracelet and hope to have a repeat or better hee hee ;)
Well I am off to work on laundry and bead. Hope to have some new pics up soon. :)
Jewelry making is my passion. I love to use seed beads, gems, glass you name it and I love to make jewelry with it. I also have an online website www.alteredinspiration.com where I show of my work and sell my jewelry, handmade beads etc. I started this blog as another outlet to see my handmade creation. Have a bead a licious day !!! Laura :)
