kara = missing in action???

Hello...I wanted to apologize for my lack of posts lately! I have been buried in stressful days + late nights (well, later than 5pm which is when my brain switches off)  + weekend days at work.
The busy time at work makes me just about able to pour a glass of wine and cook dinner when I get home- and not much else.
The only thing that I have been motivated to do is to sew beads to things- something that I completely enjoy and is blissfully mindless.  When I can work up the energy to take a decent photo, I will post some new beaded medallions (that will eventually become all sorts of glorious necklaces and jewelry items). 
i haven't forgotten about you*don't forget about me...

new necklace!

I finished this necklace the other day- I had this beautiful metal pendant that was missing its center and needed some love. I used beads in shades of green and blue around an old rhinestone from a different broken piece of jewelry. The back is finished with a scrap of dark turquoise leather and the pendant dangles happily from a vintage chain. Hopefully, it will find a new friend at Finch's Holiday Boutique !

studio mate

I wanted you all to meet my studio mate!  She sits on my window sill in all sorts of compromising poses and looks sassy. I rescued her from the Rose Bowl flea market in LA.
