Earrings Every Day Challenge

Posted by justusbeads on February 24, 2014 at 8:50 PM Comments comments (0)
As I looked back on my previous blogs I realized that I hadn't made an entry for over a year. I've been busy with life but I do need to do this more often. So... I decided to do this challenge to keep me inspired to post and to stretch my creativity. These earrings are made with carnelian beads, base metal wings, Swarovski crystals and gold fill wire. I'm looking forward to the new Outlander series and these are my homage to Dragonfly in Amber.

Challenging Myself

I've been seeing a lot of craft and design challenges on my favourite blogs lately and thought to myself "hey, that would be a good way to keep the creative juices flowing.'  And being just a little bit on the type A side I decided to not go with one of those namby-pamby 52 week challenges where you just make one new thing a week.  Oh no, not me!!!

 

Starting June 1, 2012 I, Caroline Horne will make a new piece of jewelry every day for a year.  I intend to docu...

Time Flies When You're Having Fun

Well... it's been forever since I last posted an update.  I need to get more disiplined about doing this so that my loyal readers (all two of you:D) will have something new to read.

 

I had a good Christmas season and the first cruise ship of the year was well worth the over nine hours on my feet.  We were set up on a slope so my wheeled chair was a bit of a challenge to sit on.  If I grabbed my table as I sat it didn't roll too far.  However, every time I...

Life gets in the way.

As I sit here typing this blog I realize that I haven't made a single piece of jewelry since Christmas.  With not having a workable space in our old digs, being extremely sick and moving I just haven't been motivated or creative.  I hope that changes soon.

We are still unpacking so far we've managed the kitchen, bedrooms and have almost found the dining room:D.  The cats are loving all the hidey holes among the boxes and they may be the only ones that will miss them when ...

Contest entries

Well, found out about a week ago that I was a runner up in Canadianbeading.ca's "A Windy Fall Day" contest.  I've learned to be patient with them because when you're selected as a finalist they tell you to expect your entry back by the end of "X" month.  Well... you wait and wait and wait some more, then about a month past when they said you get your entry back you get either a box or big envelope from them with your jewelry, five copies of the magazine and your prize.  Obvious...

Day before the show

Posted by justusbeads on April 24, 2009 at 11:11 PM Comments comments (0)

Well, it's Friday night and what's done is done and if I have time to make more pieces I'll be happy but as it stands I need to think about packing up.  The logistics of displaying my creations and singing in a concert all in the same show are insane.  Perhaps I am too.  You never realize until you start in this kind of business how much work goes into simply displaying the jewellery.  There's lighting, display stands, pricing the work, finding a plain white table...
