What’s the best thing you’ve made so far?

Last year, the Question of the Month that got the most enthusiastic response was this one: What’s the best thing you’ve made so far this summer?  So, anybody want to play show and tell again?  Wire work, seed beads, lampwork, fused glass, polymer clay, metal or metal clay…we love it all here, and we get enthusiastic about seeing all of it!  So come on, don’t be shy.

I’d love to share some of your summertime work here on Jewelry and Beading! Just send me an email with an image of your favorite summertime creation so far and anything you want to say about it, and I’ll post it here with a link to your site or blog :-)   Email cyndi @ b5Media.com (remove the spaces) with the subject line “my favorite project”!

Here’s my fave so far, inspired by my mother’s flower garden.  There is nothing this woman can’t grow:

      I can see today’s post, but I can’t see the comments. If I choose the post from the sidebar, I get only the comments from the last several posts, and no post.

      I am very confused.

      That is a lovely garden. How large is that, and is it practically weightless?

      Awesome! Flower gardens are very inspiring to me.

      Hi cyndi i too felt your peice was truly a remarkable peice and you should be complemented on your work . my favorite peice that i put togather this summer was a necklace that was made of beads that were composed of sea shell , but did not look like sea shells they were just tear drop shaped beads and in the middle of the necklace i put an antique pendant that was composed of animal bone and looked alot like a animals fang because of the way it was shaped. I have just one question for you do you sell your peices or pretty much just give them away. thanks for your time. tara

      That is *very* odd. I’m not seeing that, but I’ll email support about it.

      Seems OK now, but I don’t see a list of recent posts on the right, only recent comments. Maybe I’m just forgetting what used to be there – but there was an earlier issue where I got a “no posts match your criteria” when I clicked on the link for this post.

      Thanks! The garden part is about 6 inches across. Weightless? Not so much! It doesn’t *feel* too heavy when worn, because the ultrasuede sort of grips your shirt fabric and helps to distribute the weight.

      Thank you, Misty. You’d love my Mom’s gardens :-)

      Good for you, Susan! There is no end to the ways we can express ourselves through beads :-)

    • http://www.mazeltovjewelry.com Cyndi Lavin

      That sounds great, Tara! I love all the new shapes of beads made from shell or mother of pearl.

      To answer your question, I do sell my pieces, at least most of them. But my primary focus in on education rather than sales. I’ve got a couple of websites that I use to showcase my finished and available pieces :-)

      Aren’t you sweet! Thank you very much :-)
