New Shop!

And by new shop, I mean new shop:

I guess I would call it a division of Beadwork by Amanda, but with more playful items! Besides, my older shop has too much diversity and a boring shop title (let's face it, I picked it out when I was 15 and never dreamed of coming this far!). This way, I can keep the silly, fun items in one shop and the "serious" items in another shop. Plus I have a fascination with rainbows and just wanted something fun! Enough of winter!

You can see what kinds of new items I have! PLUS I'm giving away FREE sprinkle pendants to the first 5 customers!!

Are You Looking for a Job?

I sure am! Specifically, I'm looking for a summer co-op (internship) in a specific location with specific qualifications. I'm afraid I'll get stuck working retail because there aren't any chemistry jobs available. On a brighter note, I was featured in a treasury as the title suggests! I'm not quite seeing how my pendant fits the theme, but it's a cool treasury and a bit ironic, for me, at this time.

Shop Open at 1000 Markets!

I've just opened shop at 1000 markets. It's a bit sparse right now since I'm studying for final exams this week. I'll probably be listing a lot more of my beadwoven bracelets there since the market seems to lean more towards higher end items. I'll see how that goes...

You can visit my shop HERE.

It's Not What You Would Expect

The treasury, that is! Awaken Journaling has featured one of my pendants in her treasury. It's a really neat theme and she chose some very beautiful pieces! Check it out!

You Call that a Studio?!

Yes, my sad excuse for a studio is no more that a poor little desk stacked high with supplies. What I’m not showing is the table half covered in more things, the buffet covered in even more stuff, and the utility closet that is holding about 30 plastic bins (the shoebox size as they call it) full of beads and findings. If you click the photo, it will take you to flickr where I have labeled some things. (If you were really that interested…)

Understand that I’m a college student living in a small apartment. If I had my way, I’d have my own room flanked with tables for working and hutches for storage!

Despite what some people call a creative disaster, I still manage to create! Here is my newest! Also pictured is a pair of earrings I made to match the Loopy Lei necklace shown in an earlier post.

My Entry Already sold!

I finally entered a piece into the Etsy Beadweaver's (EBW) monthly challenge. I was pretty much obligated to do so since the theme is tropical holiday! I started with grand plans of making beaded orchids but 75% of the way through one orchid it went into the incomplete stash. Heh, that stash is getting a bit too big! Anyway, I listed the Loopy Lie Necklace as my entry and it sold the next day! Visit the Etsy beadweaver's blog starting tomorrow to vote for my necklace! (Or a more deserving piece as you see fit!)

This is my newest resin adventure! Will the real gummy bear please stand up?

I owe a big thanks to Stella of stellahannigan! She featured me on her blog for her Tuesdays Toot article. Visit her Etsy shop for paper goodies, jewelry, and handbags. Here is a really cute ring I found in her shop!
