I decided to try my hand on artfire as well, couldn't hurt, could it? I chose to use Shonette for my shop name I listed my items last night and woke up to find one of my cuffs in a great collection of very talented bead weavers, made my day. this collectionwas created by FeedTheBeadBeast on artfire.com,

At last, finished up this bright green 52" spiral rope variation this weekend. Decided I would add some branch fringe , the colors seemed to work pretty well together, I liked the combination of orange and lime green, who would have thought that!, Happy colors :), I have been wanting to use the large crystal cut glass beads since last summer, nice quality :).
Originally this was going to be an early spring necklace, well that didn't happen, oops, the green reminds me of all those easter baskets I had as a child . I present 'Easter Grass' , I keep telling myself I am not late, just a little early:)

So what do you do in your spare time?, I garden, or so I thought I did!, my mother has a green thumb, not sure what color mine is , perhaps brown. Think its time to get back to the beads, I can always bead a tomato plant, maybe a whole garden ....? okay time for me to be serious again, still working on a piece for the june challenge on the EBW team.... maybe I will replant , what do you think?

ran across this used cowboy hat and noticed that the brim on one side was cut off. well that sparked my interest, I noticed the felt was in perfect condition, what a waste of good material!, thats when it hit me, new series!!, 'The Cowboy Hat' , using the felt will be a great way to recycle. Hmmm... what to make first....bead pendant , maybe ring , the ideas are endless!
