Well, I've been obsessed with doing more cuff bracelets. I've trying to develop a new idea using Chris' talents at the computer with my talents of beading. Here's what we've come up with to begin. It still needs to be worked on a little bit, but I'm happy with it so far. I wore my bracelet with the dogs on it to work & immediately one of the gals saw it & wants me to make one with her kids pictures on it. I can see pictures of kids, grandchildren, dogs, cats & yes! one guy asked me if I could put pictures of his wife's favorite car on it. Sure...but I asked them to pleas let me experiment a little bit more. I'm hoping to teach this technique at the Ohio Beader's Retreat in October. I asked Cyndy S. if AFIC would be interested & she said since it was jewelry they wouldn't. I was a tad bit disappointed in that as I think this would be a great project to teach beginning beaders & they'd get something personal & custom to make & take home with them. But, I do see her point. The conference is aimed for doll making & not jewelry making. I only have until the last of this month to come up with doll proposals. I have several things in mind, but jewelry making it obsessing me. I guess that is normal.
