Most recent creations

Just thought I would share a few pictures of my newest creations.  A tigereye necklace, and a zeebra striped matching set.  Hmm....animals must have been on my mind lately!

I absolutely love making jewelry!  I love experimenting with different stones, and all different beads, and all different styles.  Although, I will say, Native American styles are by far my very favorite.  I love turquoise, bone beads, and loom work.  I haven't done a lot of bead weaving, but what I have done has turned out very nicely.  I wish I knew someone who could show me how to do the peyote stitch.  I'm more of a watch and learn type person, so looking at pictures online hasn't really helped me so far. 

I will try to be faithful in this whole blogging adventure, but I'll make no promises.  I tend to get sidetracked easily! 

About Me

I'm completely new to this "blog" thing, but we'll see how it goes.  I figured my first blog should be just giving folks a little information about myself.  My name is Beth, I'm 36, I was adopted when I was 3 months old.  The people who adopted me are my family; I know nothing about any birth relatives.  I have a younger brother who has always been one of my best friends.  I've been married to my husband, Mark, for almost 10 years now.  Married life is wonderful!  I grew up living next door to my grandparents, and I was extremely close to them.  Now, my husband and I live in my grandparents' house, next door to my dad. 

My likes and dislikes.....I love my family, my friends, and my pets!  We have one dog, Dixie, and one cat, Miss Kitty.  Dixie is my little protector, she sticks by me wherever I am.  Miss Kitty is too wild to live indoors, but she does wait by the door for her food every morning and evening.  My husband and I love to travel.  My favorite states include New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, South Dakota, Wyoming, and Montana.  That's not all of them, but most.  We try to take a trip every summer, when funds allow us to do so. 

I make jewelry and sell it locally and on Etsy.  You can view my Etsy page here:

I guess that's enough for now.  I'll share some pictures of my latest work on the next blog!
