I've been away too long. But I have eye candy!

Hi all,

What can I say, a new job, a little new time consuming craziness.  What I will say is the best decision I've made in years.  I'm so, so, so blessed!!  It was such a blessing to not get the other job.  It is also great to be at my new campus.  So far it is a mellow place.  It has it share of goofy, but nothing alarming.

The kids are very mellow, also.  Of course, they complain about every assignment, but get right to it for the most part.

Enough shop talk.  Check out my other  blog to see what is happening while I transition back to the classroom.


I made some pendants this morning just to get my hands back on some beads and such.  The first is a repurposed bead combo that I never fully liked in its other configuration.  This, I feel, is much more wearable.  Simple with some stations.

I chopped up some flower canes from Naama Zamir and added some daisy cane beads from Elaine Robataille.  All in all, I'm very pleased.

Here is a photo of the station details.

The photo is a little fuzzy, sorry, but you get the idea.  Funky with a little glam action because of the pearls.

Lastly, I finally assembled my spinner pendants.  I'm going to make more of these in solid colors.  I have always like jewelry that has moving parts, other than dangles and these spinners hit the spot for me.

That's the eye candy for the day.  The weather, Thank you God, has become more manageable after our scorching heat wave.  This morning was cloudy and delightful.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Love and peace to all my fellow bead-heads!
