Some days it works some days it doesn't!!

Some days it works and some days it doesn't!  I am referring to designing. I have had several days in the last week were I would sit down to design and it just didn't come to me. I worked and reworked a necklace that turned into a bracelet and it still is not up to snuff.

Then yesterday I sat down with some of my favorite pendants from my friend Erin of Tesori Trovati. She is a wonderful lady full of inspiration for me and I love her inspirational messages and decided it was a good day for that.

This one has turquoise stone and a taupe peanut beads that accent the boro bead from my friend Amanda at Sea Shore Glass. I have a beautiful selection of Amanda's glass in a whole tray in my studio ready to bring my designs to life.
Take time to pray. This is a message many of my friends can find inspiring. 

This one is with one of my favorite stones labradorite. This particular cut is really special, wonderful light. I added a cool angle wing and BELIEVE ring (my word) from Vintaj. The message is uplifting. The design turned out beautiful. 

I have several more of these special verse pendants and I will be adding them soon.

This one is called Spring Rain by Erin also and it says "Dream Deep" on the back of this focal. This one has a heart and tumbled ceramic bead from another friend Gaea. She also has a full tray in my studio. I have to stay away from her shop because I can't help myself every time she brings in new bundles. I am so thrilled to know these people and have their amazing beads for my designs. 

Stop by my shop, lots of new spring and valentines designs. More fun stuff soon on this blog.
