I have been shopping. The holiday season depleted my supply of jewelry and my supply of supplies. I have gone a little wild in order to replenish the stock . It has made a mess of my studio room. It is piled high with boxes and packing slips and shipping materials.
There is wire. Lots of shiny beautiful wire in multiple gauges and colors including sterling silver, gold filled and copper.
There are gemstones. Amethyst, amber, agates, jaspers, turquoise, citrine, carnelian, onyx, obsidion, quartz, garnet, jade and labradorite.
There are glass beads and metal beads and wood beads. There are jump rings and clasps and spacers.
There are cutters and pliers and boxes and a ring mandrel.
It's a mess. Its my beautiful mess and not much makes me happier than sorting and organizing, matching stones to wire. There are so many ideas swirling in my head . I need to start writing them down so I don't forget. I wish that my hands could work as quickly as my brain.
