New Beads, New Bracelets

I posted some encased beads in the SueBeads etsy store t0day – I love love love the color combinations. Also, I posted a couple new bracelets in the BellaHannahJane etsy store. I really like the wood and chrysoprase, and I just love the shape of the coffee bean jasper pillows. Check them out!

Art Bead Scene February Challenge

Have you seen the Art Bead Scene blog? Heather announced the monthly challenge today, and the theme is Klimt’s “The Kiss”. In case you didn’t notice, I happen to be a prize provider this month! YAY! Check it out here.

I have a scrabble tile pendant of “The Kiss” in my BellaHannahJane etsy store, which you can purchase if you want! Oh, and I can make more!

Heart Bracelets

When my lampwork bead business gets slow, I still have this urge to create! That’s when I pull out my now almost-organized bead stash and have a go at some jewelry! Yesterday I put together a few bracelets – the theme seems to be hearts! I had some nice red givre heart beads and added a beautiful white vintage glass bicone bead to offset the hearts. The second one was made with burnished chain, and includes a beautiful paisley heart by the very talented Lynn Davis. You can find both of these bracelets in my bellahannahjane etsy store. I will have some cute lovebird scrabble tile pendants available tomorrow (have to get the engineer to take my photos for me). I think I need to take a Photography for Dummies class so I can do that myself!

Chinese New Year

Today starts the Chinese New Year celebration, the Year of the Ox. We have a favorite Asian restaurant we go to all the time, called Taipei Tokyo. I usually get chinese, the engineer and my daughter usually get sushi, and my son gets wonton soup (doesn’t eat the wontons) and chicken on a stick!

Why not treat yourself to some of my Asian-inspired beads, made to order on my SueBeads web site?

You can also find some Asian-inspired scrabble tile pendants in my bellahannahjane etsy store.

Art Scrabble Tile Pendants in Etsy Store

I have a couple of new pendants in the BellaHannahJane etsy store – more to be added. They are art scrabble tile pendants. I think they are great – if you have a specific piece of art you really really like, these are for you! Of course, they have to be out of copyright (person dead for over 50 years). I’m going to sell them at the Holiday Shoppe I am participating in, but you get a sneak peek!
