A productive day makes me HAPPY!!

I had such a nice day today! My friend Ally usually comes over on Tuesday's for a visit and she loves to keep me company while I create jewelry. It's nice for me because I can actually get something done! With the hectic schedule I have chauffeuring  everyone around, it's nice to have some quality time with a good friend and my BEADS!! Since it's school vacation week, I also had the pleasure of my sister's company today! It was 60 something degrees outside so my three kids, my sister's three kids and Ally's three (with the exception of the baby) were all outside enjoying the beautiful weather, playing badminton, volleyball and soccer in the backyard.
So this is what I got accomplished today:
And matching earrings:
Then there is the "Sweet Tea Rose" double strand bracelet made with a few of those pretty little flowers I picked up at the Gem Show last weekend.
Here's a Silver Lotus Pendant that I attached a glass drop to, and strung it on a Steel cable choker.
And several pairs of earrings:
"Feeling Lucky?"
"A Little Rain Must Fall"
"Tide Pools"
and "Goin' Fishin'"
Oh, and I almost forgot about my "Sunken Treasure" bracelet! I pulled these beads out of my secret stash, and I'm having a hard time letting them go! They were made by Catherine Ondrey, and as many of you know, she no longer makes glass beads. I'm devastated over it! But this bracelet is so worth sharing!
So I'd say I was pretty busy today, wouldn't you? :)
More to come, as I am feeling the overwhelming urge to keep this ball rolling!
Have a great night!


  1. That's an amazing stash of new treasures!! I am impressed! I have had a good week creating too, it feels good don't you think? :)

  2. I totally agree with you, Marie! Can't wait to see what you've been making!

  3. A very productive day to say the least. Lovely pieces.

  4. Great designs and I am DYING over the clasps on the necklace and the first bracelet. Those are AMAZING!

  5. Everything is gorgeous, and the choice of clasps is terrific!!!
