I am going to have to keep up the blogging. It has been 7 days in a row, so I am on a roll. To today I am going to start out with a quote that I received in my e-mail this morning.
Quote of the day:
'Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater. If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby. If you give her a house, she'll give you a home. If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart.
She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.'
I thought to myself, how true, how true.
Anyway I am here to show you yet another design. It is a piece I made about 5 years ago. It is a combination of 2 drop peyote and a square stitch. As you can tell my inspiration was the button I used as the clasp. What other does a frog do but jump from one Lilly Pad to another.
Like I said, I did this about 5 years ago, and that was when I was first experimenting with off loom weaving. It has faded a lot since I made it and I will have to redo it. I had used the Toho Treasures in a metallic, and it didn't hold the color very well. I will look around and see if I can find another metallic green that is 'permanent'. Not sure I really trust that word when it comes to metallic seed beads.
The lady that owns the the shop where I will do a wire class, called me yesterday wanting to know the price of the pendent at was hanging on the class wall. I told her that I hadn't priced it out, but it belonged to her. I had used her supplies to create it so it really belonged to her. Well, she sold it for what I thought was under-priced, but it belonged to her. She sold it for $40.00, I would have sold it for a little more, but she is not I. Anyway now I need to make another one for the wall. I will go to the store today to use her supplies and make another similar to that one. Here is the picture of the one sold.
