So, I hadn't touched my beads for a while before Conflikt because I've been so busy. Thing is, once I get going, I get in a groove and don't want to stop.

I made a cuff style wrap bracelet at the con. This is my favourite design; I like wraps in general, but I think the cuffs really suit me and they are a bit of a challenge, and so are more fun to make. This cuff is made of picture jasper, agate, faceted citrine and some dark green stone that I think might be serpentine or something like it.



So I'm working on another one now, but I felt the need for some beer. So I tried something I had not seen before at the BCLC. I wonder if it was named by the Firefly fan? In any case, it surely lives up to the name, cuz whoa - dark!



Question is - will whatever I make be better or worse due to the beer? I suppose there's only one way to find out.



The new one is moss agate and citrine - I wasn't sure they would play nicely together, but I like it so far.

And this beer is dark and rich and tasty.

The bracelet is lovely--as always. Your jewelry is among my favorite!

But I'd be inclined to think a little beer is good for creativity flowing and too much bad for hand-eye coordination. :-)

Thank you! And it was only a small amount of beer. You are right about the hand-eye coordination.

Good -o
I saw you working on the cuff at the con and was quite struck by it. The beer sounds like it is entirely nommy and your evening very pleasant.

Re: Good -o
I really like the green leather with the beads - it adds something. I had some burgundy leather as well, but it got used up. I do believe I need to acquire some more.
