Thursday's Thought



Life is not easy. 
We gotta give that notion up. 
Take a deep breath.
And leap.
We can relax within the chaos, 
by making friends with space—not having to “do” all the time.
 Not having to rush, rush, rush—and then veg out, to balance.
Find a middle path: do what you love.


Have a blessed day!!

Oh To My Surprise.......



What a day it has been.
I have a few bags of mismatched earrings and jewelry from
thrift shopping that I haven't gone through just yet.
I had forgotten that I had thrown in some items that were just lying around.
One of the items, was the very first piece of jewelry that I ever made for a blog hop.

I couldn't stop laughing because of the way I had joined the links and beads
together.
Seriously with wire wrapped around the back of the link.
The only thing I did get right with that piece was that the 
wire went through the bead hole.
Here it is....

Anyhow, I just wanted to share my first piece with y'all.
Have a great week!!

Currently I'm........

I have not done one of these in quite some time.
Here we go!!

Currently I'm watching my cat clean himself.

Currently I'm reading Unhooked by Lisa Maxwell.

Currently I'm listening to Imagine Dragons.

Currently I'm making some earrings out of soda cans.

Currently I'm feeling blah at the moment.

Currently I'm planning a move outta Fresno.

Currently I'm loving myself.



Sea Shell, Sea Shell, By The Sea Shore


From as long as I can remember I have always found beauty in 
sea shells and sea glass.
On my last trip to Monterey, Ca.
I found quite a few shells, whole and broken.

The broken shells are my favs because 
I love to take broken items and 
make them beautiful again.


I took some driftwood I had saved from another trip,
sea glass and the shells I found to make a wind chime.

At first I was just going to leave it like this...


 But these two shells were calling to me.

 
I knew I had to use them!


I am so glad I did.
I love how it came out.
I hope you do too.


Hope you all have a wonderful week.

We're All Ears ::March Challenge :: Leaping Greenly



With most of the U.S under snow, Erin from Earrings Everyday
wants to see our greenly creations for the return of Spring.  
I am not one for working with green so this is a challenge for me.
But I was able to get three pairs created.





This is a blog hop, so make sure to check out earrings everyday
to see what everyone else has created.

Have a great weekend!!

Beaded Earrings




I love reading other blogs because not only do I learn
from them, but I get to try them out as well.
Today I was reading Crafty Hope's blog post on
making a wire frame and beaded earrings from those frames.

I have tried several times to make these earrings before 
and failed miserably lol
I was not sure about trying another time, but Hope made it look so 
easy, I just had to try.
And I am glad I did.
I learned some techniques on not only the frames, but wrapping the beads as well.

Here are the colors I chose.

And here is how they turned out.....


I still have some work to do on keeping the frame unbent lol
but for my first completed try,
I'll take it..

Thanks Hope for  your post.
Everyone go check out here blog at

Have a great weekend and don't forget....
turn those clocks ahead.

What's On My Worktable Wednesday



I am a huge Arizona drinker.
Not only so I love the drink, but the cans too.
So I decided to make a pair of earrings out of one of my
favorite cans.  Yes I have a fav lol.



It has some really cool blossoms and Japanese lettering.
And a ying yang symbol.
So I began to cut the can apart and saved pretty much all of it for other 
projects.

Here is what I made so far.



Also,
last night I had hammered some copper and darkened it up some.
I was starting to get tired so I left them for today.
Here is how those came out.

Have a great week!
