Working on a new piece!

Well, I started a new piece. What did I get myself into? I always do this, I set out to make a nice, simple necklace, and it turns into a six strand nightmare!! Well, they always look pretty when they're done, but OY the headache in the making!

I've been working here and there today during naptime on it. These little buggers make it almost impossible sometimes!

It also gets a little difficult because usually I sit on my bed and work. I don't have a "workspace", per se, so I sit on my bed and do my thing. I lay everything out on my bead tray and have at it. Today I was even chatting with my fellow Etsyans in the forums while I worked. Ask me why I didn't get much done!

What a mess, but I make do! My mom (the other half of Brewergals!) has a whole workroom set up at her house, the wench. If she didn't live 45 minutes away I'd probably be there every night using it!! Oh well.

I just have to put up some more pictures of the boys, well, for the hell of it. Because they're the cutest boys in the whole wide world. (I may be a bit biased in my opinion, though. :D)

Well, that's enough for now. Til next time, Ciao, babe!

Welcome to my blog!!!

Welcome! I hope you enjoy my blog, and it gives you a bit more insight into the jewelry in my Etsy shop!

A little update on what I'm working on right now:
A coworker of mine, Gregg Oman, was injured last year in an altercation. He fell and hit his head, and sustained quite a bit of brain damage from it. They're still not sure entirely how much damage was done, because he keeps getting infections and illnesses, making it hard to continue his therapy. Right now he's back in the ICU again with an infection. I really liked working with him, and we all miss him a bunch.

Some of the gals in the office have put together a benefit for him at the end of this month, where they will be having a silent auction, with all of the proceeds going toward his medical bills. I promised I would make a necklace and earring set for the auction, and I just finished it up today. Let me know what you think! I'm hoping it will raise a bit of money to help him.
