Where did another year go!

I promised not to overload you all with newsletters but waiting a year between them is probably a bit too long.  :)  And I said I would try to do better last year!  Well this gives me something to improve upon in the future.

I did the normal Jan-Feb excursion to Tucson for beads/stones with my mom. We had a BLAST - as always.  After that I was out of commission for jewelry making because I finally had the foot surgery I've been delaying for 10 years.  It took me quite a while to get back in the swing of making jewelry after that , but I'm starting to get some new ideas whirling through my mind.  :)  The first place they make an appearance is on Facebook since I really like the one-on-one interaction you get with people in the various jewelry groups.  So if you want to be the first to see my designs be sure to like cserpentDesigns on Facebook and turn on the notifications.  I update my blog somewhat regularly and I do blog about my new designs there as well.  

If you're local and want to see my designs in person I'll be selling them at the Senior Games soccer tournament again this year.  Since I'm only just now starting to play soccer after the surgery I won't be playing in the tournament this year.  :( I'll be at the Senior Games soccer tournament on Sat 9/9 and Sun 9/10 from about 8-3'ish. You're welcome to stop by and visit, watch the games, peruse the jewelry and, of course, buy your favorites!  I'll be at Hourglass Park in Mira Mesa - right next to Miramar College on Black Mountain Road.  I hope to see you there!  

I decided to open up an online studio on Zibbet.  I'm going to give it a try to see how that site works out.   And, of course, I always have many designs for sale in my ArtFire and Etsy online studios.

If you know me at all you know I LOVE purple!  Here are some earrings I designed combining handmade glass beads and some gemstones.

As always you can see some of the new things I have for sale on my website. My website shows things I'm selling on Zibbet, Etsy and ArtFire.  I have links to my ZibbetArtfire and  Etsy shops on my Facebook page and on my website.  

If you're local and are interested in a home jewelry show anytime this year please contact me so we can arrange it. Hostess discounts are available and a hostess gift is always part of the show!

Soothing colors in the handmade glass beads and handmade polymer drops with chrysoprase, brass and Swarovski crystal accents. Available in my Zibbet studio.

ivory, lavendar, artisan lampwork bead, mother of pearl, aventurine, ivoryite and sterling silver earrings
I've been having a LOT of fun fusing argentium sterling silver wire.  I form a mesh like design that gets a bit messy during the process since fusing has a mind of its own, so I call it mish mesh. For these I shaped my mish mesh rectangle into a spiral.  Available in my Zibbet studio.
beige, white, gold, artisan lampwork beads, white pearls and gold fill necklace
I love pearls and gold and they both work beautifully with these artisan lampwork beads. Find more information and pictures in my ArtFire studio.

Do you like insects?  Then how about these?

Dragonfly Dreams -  The artisan lampwork in these pretties have sparkly, copper dichroic in the core.  They are a beautiful accent to these  lovely, handmade acrylic wings.
These pretties are available in my Zibbet studio.

artisan lampwork beads, artisan acrylic wings, yarn, glass seed beads  and sterling silver earrings
Touch of Pink Butterfly -  I love these artisan made, acrylic butterfly wings.  The lampwork beads are a wonderful way to top them and the yarn adds a fun touch!  These are available in my Zibbet studio.
