Indian Summer

Apparently my bead block does not apply to the Oct. page. This is not the best of pics, but it will give you an idea where I'm going with this. I just started it last weekend and so far it seems to be going okay. I found this face in San Rafael several years ago and never found the right place for it until now. The addition of the stones made me think of the last warm days before cold weather takes hold. The leaves were a serendipitous thought about fall, but when I added them, it made me think of a feathered shield that an Indian brave might carry. The blank space on the left shows one of the leaves standing on end instead of laying flat as it should. I like making my pieces textural. Besides, it's a good excuse when your beads don't behave. LOL

Other beading

I am in a slump!!! I love the page I 'm doing for September, but I can't seem to make myself finish it. ??? Guess I'll start October and see if I can get myself going again. In the meantime, here are some of the things I've done in the jewelry range.

We are having our Bead Society Annual Bead Show this Sunday. It promised to be fun. Two rooms full of goodies. I'm sure to find something I like. Maybe it will trigger my muse once again.
