I just got a whole bunch of new cameos in! I have new small horse head cats eye for rings, 30x40 cats eye kitty cameos, religious cameos, mermaid cameos, seahorse cameos and more. That's not all, still expecting one more shipment to arrive sometime next week. Whew, looks like I'm gonna be one busy gal!

Here are some rings and earrings I took up to the gallery in town. First are the Birthstone rings plus one little lonely wrap ring. Second are a Pearl ring, a SS Moonstone ring and a GF Moonstone ring. Lastly are three pair of earrings in Sterling. The silver on the beads isn't sterling but those beads sure are pretty.

My muse has finally returned after nearly two months! Within the last two days I've been able to complete five pendants and three rings. There's gonna be more in the next few days so be on the lookout.
Decided to put these up for auction and see how they'll do. You can check it out at http://stores.shop.ebay.com/Creations-by-Carol-Ladine

I've been doing a lot of procrastening so really don't have much to show right now. Did think I'd show some of the seed bead work I've done in the past.
The first one I made using Midnight Iris and still have. The white one was made for a friend I worked with and yeah, it did get finished and she loved it. The third photo was my largest project ever done. This piece took me nearly three months to complete. No, I don't have it anymore. Like a dope, tried to sell it on Ebay, years ago, and someone got it for a song. Oh well, I'm getting ready to make another one. Just have to get a couple of dowels so I can remake my loom.
I'm still hanging in there and not smoking. I have to admit, the afternoons are the worst time for me. I really need to get some non fattening snack foods. A couple of years ago I would'nt have had to be concerned about weight gain but I do now as I've finally gotten up to what they call my "ideal weight" for my height.
