Happy first day of Spring to all of you in the Northern Hemisphere! As for those of you in the Southern Hemi, I wish you a happy first day of Autumn!
The new season(s) bring(s) the promise of new merchandise in my shop very soon...
Taking advantage of this sunny afternoon I threw open the windows and shot photos of a whole bunch of new Kumi Necklaces; now it's just a bit of retouching and description writing and they'll be listed in the shop. (Photo below shows just a few; more colors coming in the shop update.)
Yesterday was also a lovely (if a bit chilly) day which I enjoyed by meeting up with an jeweler friend to try to restrain our spending at the Whole Bead Show in Chelsea, followed by good conversation over a tasty muffin (for her) and pretzel croissant (for me--YUM!) at City Bakery. I did limit my spending by having a shopping list; though I didn't find everything on that list I was able to get what I really wanted: some vulcanized rubber beads from Africa! I can't wait to start making necklaces with these, for me, and for the shop! I also found some fantastic black glass African beads that are a sort of squarish version of those in my Chevron Necklaces for which I'm already brainstorming ideas--stay tuned for updates!
