Moving into Summer

Now that my collar is done and gone, I've gone back to business as usual. In keeping with my New Year's resolution, I'm ripping through my bead hoard.



My latest bracelet reflects my new Summertime mood and uses some beautiful African turquoise beads that have hung around for years.

It's time to build inventory in anticipation of show applications. Kind of like planning a party, and worrying there won't be enough food, I feel the same way about stocking a booth. Best to err on the side of overdoing than not having enough work to show...

The bracelet is gorgeous! I love the addition of the purple and gold to the turquoise, and the periwinkle suede is just the perfect counterpoint. I really admire your plan to de-stash while you create stock. I've got do that myslelf!
