Bead Crochet Brilliance by Sylvia Kubilus-Elam

I want to share with you a creation by fellow Etsian Sylvia Kubilus-Elam of beadacious1221. She bought one of my "Crocodile Rock" beads and created this stunning beaded necklace. She has an awesome collection of creations in her shop as well.

I will be creating new "Crocodile Rock" beads in the future so if you want a necklace like this you can buy my beads and commission Sylvia to create one for you. I know that she has more of my beads as well so she will probably be listing more soon. Keep checking back.

Here is a link to her blog with more pictures of the necklace...

Are you thinking about Fall yet?

It seems impossible to think about fall colors yet....But here we are early July and the fall color fashion report is out for Fall of 2009. My local artisan gallery here in town is already talking about fall plans. It is funny I was just thinking the other day while enameling how was I going to get into the swing of the fall seasons..drab colors??? eecck! Then I saw the Pantone color report and was excited and inspired.
See the full report here in pdf form: Pantone Fall 2009 Color Report.
Fantastic colors...I must get enameling.
