Planning for Saturday's Market

I've got some new goodies for the Scappoose Market. Here's a preview:

Swarovski Cosmo Jet Crystal Earrings
on Sterling Ear Posts $15.00

Lampwork Bracelet with bone and sterling accents $30:

Lampwork beads with Hill Tribe silver on 1mm sterling snake chain $45

Red & Black Lampwork with Silver on Sterling Chain $45

So if you happen to be in the Scappoose area tomorrow and want to see more jewelry or buy some farm-fresh produce, swing by the Scappoose Farmer Market!


I snagged a Treasury on Etsy and have showcased some beautiful jewelry creations by my fellow TBO (Tranquil Beading Oasis) members. Check it out here:

I've made several new bracelets and earrings and finally posted a few in my Etsy shop. I have several more to post (maybe tomorrow?). And I got some new gemstones today from Lima Beads that are begging to be transformed into a necklace, along with the new sterling I got earlier in the week. So many jewelry designs, so little time!

New Glass Goodies

I've been a little MIA lately, huh? I've really only been torching with my new glass goodies so nothing mysterious going on. I got some beautiful Gaffer Cane from Gail Joseph of GG Glass and made some beads that demanded to be made into a bracelet last night. Here are the results:

And I also made some Swarovski pearl earrings that I really like. Here they are:

I made several pair of earrings and a few bracelets so I could replenish my booth at the Scappoose Farmer Market tomorrow. There's also a vintage car show in the neighboring park so attendance at the market should be up a bit. Of course, the weather isn't being entirely cooperative - chance of showers - but maybe the rain will hold off until after the Market ends.

In other news from Scappoose, the yellow finches and hummingbirds have discovered the feeders I put out and have been eating me out of house and home. Unfortunately the neighbor's cat has learned that she can lay under the rhododendron and make flying leaps at the birds. I've found the feeders on the ground a few times but no sign of any dead birds so I'm hoping they're faster than that feisty feline. I put some border fencing around the area where she was laying in hopes she'll get frustrated and move on to new hunting grounds.

My cyber-friend Pam, of The Blue Between (blogspot is in my links), was kind enough to send me some new Vetrofond odd lot glass that she got at the Frantz Bash last weekend. I'm off to light the torch and see what this new glass can do!

Life is Good

A new dishwasher! And someone to install it! I feel like a kid at Christmas.
