More Micro Macrame Kits Just Listed

As promised, I am back today to post some more news.

Yesterday, I listed some "Speckled Fans Jewelry Set" kits in a variety of colors.

And today, I listed some "Casual Diamonds Bracelet" kits in a variety of colors.  The include some really cool triangular metal buttons with a "Celtic Knot" motif that I found the last time Button Drawer had a big sale.  Appropriate, I thought.
 

Find them at both my Etsy and ArtFire shops.


By the way, did you notice I am experimenting with some new photos for my kits?  Picassa now has the capacity to make "collages" from photos.  I love it.  I think the collages make it "cleaner" looking and easier to see what the kit is for, especially in thumbnails.


I do have more to write about, but not sure if that will be tomorrow or sometime this weekend.  Stay tuned.

Finally, An Update!

I know, I know.  I've been bad.  I haven't written in so long.  But, I have been busy.
Where to start?  Wellllllll.....

I have been playing with knotting scheme used in my "Entrapped" bracelet that many of you remember:


That bracelet utilized a "knotting in the round" type of scheme.  So, I wondered where else I could take it.  As you probably remember, I had already tried it with the "Acorn" earrings:


Then, I played with this idea:



And then, I made this necklace for a contest over at Beads Perles.  I call it "Comets at Midnight".  I did not win, but I had a lot of fun and learned a lot about this knotting scheme.  If I were to make this necklace today, I would change a few things, but overall I think I like it.


I promise I will write more tomorrow, but Hubby is coming home soon and will want his turn at the internet.
