Just what I need, updated

Awhile back I posted about a new hobby I have been hooked on. Since I need another hobby like I need a hole in my head, right?  Wait, don't answer that. 

Well it's getting bad- I'm finding myself spending more and more time looking for beads and thinking of new design ideas.  When it consumes more then a few hours a week I know I have a problem.

Anyway, enough blabbing here are a few new items I created recently


The two pictures above are the same necklace, different outfits.

Love this green one, its a funky looking necklace in a bright green color- a perfect pair for the pink sweater I had on that day



Dainty little pearl bracelet with three flat pearls in the center- perfect for everyday.


Now that I'm seeing these all in one spot I think I need to come up with a few different designs besides the multi strand drop bead necklace.

Back to the stores that means.

You are so good at making these! They are really pretty. I picked up some beads last night from the craft store. My first beading project. EEEEK.

ooooooo I don't really do jewelry (same NOLA necklace everyday) but I love the necklace from the first 2 pics. Clear goes with everything! Perfect.

ps: do you have a head?

Liz I realized it looked kinda creepy to post headless pics of myself after I cropped them already, oops. Next time I'll include the head hahaha

JMW said...

Ooo, I really like your work! A really bold, colorful piece of costume jewelry can really make an outfit. You may be on to a new profession there!

Love love LOVE! Anytime you are ready to take orders, please let me know. I understand your "problem" completely -if I had time I would time beading is a hobby that I would love to add to my list of well, let's say focused issues...

Wow! I am impressed with your new obsession/hobby! I especially love the green one and the adorable pearl necklace. Sounds like it could be a hit and a new business for you!

dovecote Decor said...

Yes, you've fallen down a rabbit hole Alice. However, it looks like your first pass at beading is respectable. I have many friends who are not yet in recovery from the jewelry making addiction. I don't know what it is, but I'm afraid to start for becoming seriously side-tracked. Next will be your Etsy store, then Tucson...for gems. You will be hooked! Be careful!
Best,
Liz

These are great, I particularly love the first one b/c it is so versatile. I could see how you would be hooked on this hobby because the result is wearable and fun!

Emily A. Clark said...

What a fun hobby! (And, maybe a profitable one. . . .) Love the green necklace!

Karen@StrictlySimpleStyle said...

What a fun hobby to have. There's a great store in my area called Meant to Bead, you would probably love it and want to spend hours there. I particularly love the green necklace you made. Green works with so many colors you will definitely get a lot of use out of it.

Naomi@ThirteenandSouth said...

LOVE them! I need a new hobby too. Sometimes I feel like all I do is interior design, watch TV, and eat food....

Mary said...

I love making jewelry as well! It's so much fun. It's time consuming, but rewarding!!

Rachel said...

Wow! These are so great!! Good job!

Have you considered maybe making some necklaces/bracelets for your bridesmaids?? Either to wear at your wedding, or as a bridesmaid gift??
