More Beaded Pretties

I promised some more pictures of what I've been beading lately. These are two brooches made of glass cabochons that I created from scans of some antique french postcards. This one (above) has antique french seed beads in celedon green accenting it.
I love the image in this one. I call it "Drama Girl with Horse". Ha.

I'm Back!

I know I have been gone a long time. I had to deal with my mother's death and my second journey with breast cancer. But... I had my last chemo treatment and I am getting stronger every day and I'm ready to return to cyberspace.
I have been beading steadily while going through my treatment, so I have quite a few bits and pieces to show. I went through a heart phase around Valentine's Day and made many of these "Crazy Heart" Brooches.

I'm partial to green and purple, so these were two of my favorites.

But I liked the hand offering the crystal in this Teal number.
I have a lot happening now. Saturday Market starts up in April, My son moved out of my Garden Studio, so I'll be repainting it and moving much of my art process back into it. I plan on offering classes and hosting art inspiration groups there.
I'll post more pictures in the next few days. I have been very busy and my beading has been my therapy, so I have many differant styles that I've been playing with.
Till then....
