Princess Abracadebra?

Hey there bloggy friends. I'm still here. Just been busy doing staycation stuff with the teenager named Miss Thang Tammy. Its been a little harder than usual to find some quality beading time. But I have managed to finish two pieces. If they were part of a collection, It would have to be named the Princess Collection.  With just a quick look at the pics, you'll see what I mean.

See, like I said princessy looking, right?  Not that there is anything wrong with princessy. In fact, I happen to love both the necklace and bracelet. They are my idea of the perfect summertime designs. I remember last year, right after I purchased like 5 strands of pink glass pearls, I immediately went to work on two bracelets. I got really tired of looking at the pink pearls after completing the bracelets. Well I am happy to say that both of the bracelets were sold to a friend at work, so I recently decided that I needed to dig out the pearls again and add another bracelet to my shop. Mission accomplished.

I would never describe my personal style as princessy. In fact, I prefer to dress in black and red. I think I will be glad when summer is over and I can start designing for fall and winter. I was glancing through a Harper's Bazaar magazine the other day and was literally drooling over the fall accessories.  Picture a box of eight crayons and take each of them colors added to a backdrop of black. Lots of primary colors mixed with black, kind of color blocked. And then there is the blue, green and black snakeskin. It was everywhere from shoes, to bags, to belts. I am really looking forward to designing jewelry in these color patterns. Good bye Princess, Hello black. I am so excited that I gotta run, right now, and start going through my bead stash. As usual I hope you'll stick around to see what I come up with.

TTYL and make it a good night
