We are back and Glad of it!!

These earrings are made with Sea Sediment Jasper, and Vintaj findings. I love the pale milky look of this particular Jasper mixed with the brass. Just thought I should add a little eye candy to this post, since I don't have too many good things to talk about today.
I have a scheduled post that will go up right away and this one will be up shortly after. I had to come on and say that I have delete all my facebook stuff. I was tired of my family undermining each other on facebook and so my fan page also went with it unfortunately. I honestly don't think that I will ever go on holidays again. Too many things went wrong and made it extremely un-enjoyable. I am gad to be home and with my husband, he is being really wonderful right now and I can not imagine loving him more.

So on to better things. I was creating like crazy while I was out there. I made a whole bunch of bracelets and earrings as well as a turquoise necklace. I am waiting for my batteries to re-charge and then I will be taking pictures later this evening. The best part of this trip, was getting to go on the day before my Birthday to this cute little cabin called "Bavin Glass Cabin". I learned how to make lampwork glass beads. Let me tell you, I have a whole new outlook on this particular art. "Sue you Rock!" It was incredibly fun and maybe even a little addicting. I absolutely loved it. On my Birthday I went back and rented the torch for 3 hours and made a whole bunch of beads. I will be taking pictures of those and posting some. I also want to make some pieces of jewelry and post those too. I am not great at the whole bead making thing but some turned out pretty cool.

I can't wait to show you all I did.
Have a great day!

How cool that you got to go to a lampwork bead class! I thought about taking a class at our local community college (they offer that sort of stuff as continuning education), but for now, I am going to stick with a polymer clay class! I can't wait to see what you came up with!

Isn't lampworking fun? If I had the time and the space for a torch set-up, I would totally make my own beads all day.
