Adventures in Photography.

On Sunday I photographed a lot of my older pieces that currently have really bad pictures up on my site. For the past couple of days I've been in the process of cleaning up those new photos. Here's one of a necklace I've always really loved. The hollow borosilicate bead has such beautiful wavy lines of color, with just a touch of sparkle in the green. The colors themselves are also pretty unusual, almost like camo with some blue thrown in.

All of these new photos will go up on Friday or Sunday, dependent upon my schedule. I'll be house-sitting again this weekend, and I'm not sure yet when I'll take off for that on Friday. Either way, there will be an update on Sunday, but it may just be one item -- the brown and green necklace I'm working on, which I plan to finish tonight. It's pretty awesome.

In the meantime, it's back to photo-edits for me.

Today's Cool Thing is the 2007 Bead Journal Project Blog. A lot of my beading friends are participating in this year-long bead embroidery project. I considered signing up as well, but with all the things I have coming up (including a possible move!) I didn't feel that I could commit to it. I'm already regretting letting this chance pass me by, though. Looks like it's going to be a lot of fun. If you love beadwork, you should definitely keep your eye on this project. There will be some beautiful things made, I can promise you that.


  1. I thought about signing up for the 2007 Bead Journal project too, but didn't. I can't wait to see what everyone makes.

  2. It's not too late! You can journal your move with beads - that should be cool!
    Cheers, Denise

  3. Denise, stop being a foul temptress ;)

    I don't think I have any cardboard box brown seed beads, which would make it hard to journal a move :D
