Looking back over my posts from the past few months, I see I've been negligent in posting regularly, but I do have an excuse---I have participated in two local jewelry shows. I've been so busy preparing for them that I haven't had time to post to the blog. here is my attempt to get back on track.
For a Christmas present, I received a new Groovy Tool designed by Heather Trimlett. Just as its name implies, it has three grooves in three different diameters. The largest one is designed for hollow beads (more about these later). I've been playing with the smallest groove, making small disc beads in various colors and decorating them with dots on the outer circumference:
Earrings made from these beads which will be on sale soon in my Etsy shop (etsy.com/shop/DeborahDRoss).
