Getting ready for bead peeps wrap and hop!!!

It's that time of year again time for the swap and hop on bead peeps.
I've had a busy year this year, changing jobs, new grand baby taking care of my mom after a hip fracture.

I now have my jewelry in a crafters shop with Robin Showstack inwalpole mass, so exciting to have a venue to sell at.   Haven't made much in the last year as I have been busy but itching to go. I like rustic copper pieces with my handmade  focals, I work in polymer clay metalwork and copper.
I have also newly ventured into planning which of course I collect !  Who is a hoarder of all crafts.

I live in dedham Massachusetts. On a quiet road with my son and three chihuahuas and a fat cat. I love to garden in the Summer and hibernate in the winter doing crafts.
This year has been hard as my best friend Robin was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and has been undergoing chemotherapy.   I started a go fund me page for her as she has no job or income, I try to get her out to our favorite places....craft stores and bead shows when she is up to it. Thankfully her tumors are shrinking. 60%. So far and doing better. Say a prayer for her and say Hi.  She also signed up for the hop and I will help her as needed due to some neuropathy in her hands from chemotherapy

My style like I said is more rustic and less girly. I use mostly earth tones. Love to work with copper, Never use gold!!!!!! No pink in my designs either.  !!!!  I don't use seed beads as my eyesight is not great close up. Like chunky beads and regular size beads.   I like to get to know my partner and their likes dislikes and enjoy sending my handmade components, polymer clay etching ,enameling . And fold folding.    I need to break out my torch and get ready to fire it up to make something homemade for my partner.

  1. It is interesting to learn that you do not like pinks but you like copper. I did not know that about it. I hope this year's swap brings us closer together
