I was blessed with a four-day weekend over the Easter holiday. Normally, that would result in lots of new Junebug gems. And, while I did get a few pieces done, I focused more on getting my studio reorganized with all my fabulous components tucked away. I got lots of new beads as well, and they all had to be added to inventory and placed in their respective bins. It took more than a minute, but I finally got it all done.
It is so refreshing to walk into a perfectly-neat work area. Who knows how long it will stay that way, so I’ll enjoy the fruits of my labor while they last.
To honor my spring cleaning moment, I decided to make some new Bling Ball Bracelets in the lovely mint color that is popular this spring. This first one uses mint-colored shamballa beads, river shell pearls and faceted rondelles against gold-plated stardust beads and glass crystal clusters.
I had to make a match, since these bracelets look awesome in layers. The second bracelet uses the shamballa beads, rondelles and gold stardust rounds, but I added in teardrops that feature an emerald and mint swirl pattern.
I can’t wait to get home this evening to see what’s next on my creative agenda.
What do you think of my Spring Bling?
