A Winner and Some Beadies

Congratulations to WOL at the Owl Underground for winning the April Give-Away Brooch (pictured below). I especially like this little brooch and have one similar that I wear when I meet friends for coffee.

Sooooo....What shall I give away for May? Let me rummage around here in the secret Beady Chest for a moment.....Aha! Here's something I hope you will all like.
This little Kokopeli is adorned with beads in coral and russett with a matte black and white checkerboard around it. This is what's up for grabs in the month of May. So leave a comment and follow this blog to be in the running for it.

I participated in a Spring Jewelry Show last week-end (3 days) and took my beading with me to pass the time between customers and to show people how I create these little morsels. I had been beading non-stop for the show and got a number of pieces made during the show as well, so I'm pretty flush with brooches. I'm loading some on my Etsy shop and taking some to the gallery and the shops where I sell.
Here are some that I still have locally.
This one is made from one of Nan Emmett's fab cabs.

The keys and my Sugar Skulls are my best sellers.

This one is made from a vintage button and some yummy bright olive beads.

I have a thing for owls.

I love the colors in this Sugar Skull. I sell a lot of these and get many comments. People either love them or hate them.

  4. You have a thing for owls, too?!?! I LOVE them, and I love your brooch! It's so adorable. :3 I like Kokopelis, too, and think it is great as well. And the coffee cup brooch is perfect; I would wear it to meet friends for coffee as well---lucky Wol! :D Beautiful work as always. ^__^
