My entry for the April Challenge "Light as a Breeze"

Image
Once again the theme for the monthy challenge of the Etsy Beadweavers "Light as a Breeze" has inspired me to create a new entry.  My entry is "Ocean Breeze" and while I was creating the bracelet I wished that I was once again traveling down the coast of Mexico and experiencing those soft Ocean breezes. 
I especially wanted to be south again as our friends on R. Genesis transversed the Panama Canel last week and are now heading up the east coast of Panama and I think why are we not with them.  Oh well someday Mike and I will go again.  In the meatime I sit here and dream of days gone by. 
The voting will start on April 9 and run to the 15th at http://www.etsy-beadweavers.blogspot.com/ so be sure that you stop in and vote for your favorite entry.  Once again I think that there will be some amazing work come out of our group.

Dark Dreams - Dream Catcher Necklace

Image
I have finally finished a new project that I started a couple of weeks ago when I received my 10 free beads from Nomad Crafts.  I had signed up on Nomad Crafts facebook fan page to be part of a group of artist that would be sent 10 free beads to use in a project.  Janelle of Nomad Crafts made these wonderfull yellow and black lampwork beads and they inpired me to create my Dark Dreams Dream Catcher necklace.  I used 9 of the beads and then realized that Janelle had actually sent me 15 Lampwork beads.  Whoo Hoo I now have 6 more of these wonderful gems to make a second project.  Gee what will I do, stay tuned. 

If you would like to see more of Janelle's lampwork glass just click on the shop name above and the link will take you to her shop.

Recent Sales at Angelque Creations

After a long dry spell with no activity I recently sold 3 of my beadwoven items.  One of the items that sold is my March "Fairy Tales" challenge piece called Tinker Bell's Pixie Dust cuff.  This bracelet is 2" wide and created with 3 mm Japanese lime green square beads, size 6 rainbow cream soda Japanese seed beads, 11/0 pink and gold silver lined Japanese seed beads, white and pink fresh water pearls, and lime green dyed (MOP) mother of pearl donuts.  This so far is my favorite piece that I have created and I am glad that it has gone to a good home where it will be worn with pride.
The other two pieces were my Artist Exposed for VickiDiane - Baja Desierto bracelet with 6/0 desert mix Japanese seed beads, fresh water pearls dyed Iris gold and the 3rd bead woven piece is my Cotton Candy bracelet.  Cotton Candy was listed at 50% of in my shop AngelqueCreations and there are still several other beautiful items listed at 50% off.  I am trying to create room in my shop An…

The piece could represent absolutely anything: good or evil characters, flowers, objects, animals or places and castles, but in needs to be tied to a story."  My challenge piece was inspired by the modern "Fairy Tale" Peter Pan and the Lost Boys so I created for Tinker Bell a Cuff of pixie dust.
