Busy Times

Well we are getting ready for a garage sale which will run from Thursday August 2nd - Sunday August 5th. So much to price but hopefully I will get as much done as possible. We will have four banquet tables, three tables made using saw horses, three card tables, five hanging racks, one metal shelf and many and I mean many cardboard boxes. Phew!! That will be one HUGE garage sale.

Probably won't have any time for lampworking, sob! sob! Tissue please.

I promise I do have lots of things in the work but you will have to check back next week to see what I am up to.

I already have two etsy stores tesoro custom beading and tesoro stitchery plus a web site www.home.earthlink.net/~tesoro.debbie

Try to keep cool with this hot weather we are having.

Violet and teal lampwork heart pendant

Well here is my newest and most expensive creation so far using one of my lampwork beads. This beautiful heart bead came out so big that I decided to make it into a pendant. I am also teaching myself to wire wrap and have to admit that it did take me two attempts to get it right.

While out running errands yesterday I found several sterling silver bails that I could add to my pendants to give them an elegant finish.
Check back soon to many more of my creations.

My first blog

Well here goes. My computer has a sotware problem but not to worry it is getting fixed.
I have been making new lampwork beads late into the early hours of the morning because my
kids are on summer break. I am trying to teach myself to twist wire as I have several beads I want to make into pendants.
My order arrived from Arrow Springs today which I am very excited about as I have new tools
for sculpturing, new size mandrels and sterling silver wire. I still want to get more glass but I
cannot make up my mind which colors do I want.
Bye for now.
