Stretch bracelets

I am so addicted to stretch bracelets these days.  They're so easy and fast to make, and I love the look of several of them stacked together.  I whipped these up last night in no time at all.

I have a feeling my next few bead purchases will be bought with stretch bracelets in mind.  

I'm off to Lynchburg, VA for a meeting and hopefully a little shopping--including a bead store!

It's Fall Y'all

I know I've said it a million times before, but fall is my favorite time of year.  The mountains here are absolutely amazing, and the leaves seem to be particularly bright this year.  Here are a few pics of our recent leaf-looking trips.

The first is a pic of the (very) small city I grew up in.  Yes, this is the entire city!

This is a view of the mountains from a nearby tower.  You can see five states from the tower--just don't ask me to point out which state is which!

Travis and me with a statue of the Woodbooger--the local name for Bigfoot.

These were taken at the Breaks--an hour or two from our house.

The leaves hadn't quite reached their peak.  If we could have gone a week later the color would have been even better.

We did have a visitor, though.

And, finally, the corn maze we visited this weekend.

I do have jewelry to show, but I haven't  managed to photograph all of it.  I did get some pics of this piece, though.

The acorn pendant was made from a real acorn cap that I found last year on a fall leaf-viewing excursion.  I cleaned and sealed it, then added the blue bead.  I love it!

Coming soon is a shop update.  I'll post the date tomorrow!
