Tracy Reese in Country Living Magazine May 2012

I finally sat down today to catch up on my magazines. I've been a fan of Country Living Magazine since they have been in existence. Ok, so it's the end of July and I'm reading May's issue. Yes, I'm that behind. I found a wonderful article on designer, Tracy Reese. Lovely photos of her finds from Walmart's, Antique stores, Ballard Designs. Placed perfectly in her home these finds were simply outstanding. What caught my eye was this comfy-cozy dress. I tried to find it on Tracy Reese website and on the internet but I must be too late. It's nowhere to be found at this point.

This dress would look fantastic with my Scarlet Silver Bangle...

Tracy Reese dresses Michelle Obama and Taylor Swift.  How cool is that?  Well, that's my chit-chat for today. Take care, Beadheads! Remember to take care of yourself.

Work In Progress ~ Handcrafted Jewelry in it's Making!

Just a little peek of what's on my workbench right now...

Here's ONE, yes one of my containers of lampwork beads. Pretty aren't they?

A couple of bangles I'm working on and bebopping with...I use a copper coil first before using my sterling silver. Less costly mistakes.  I leave them for a couple of days before completing to make sure I like the way they look. Just the way they are...hmmm...reminds me of the Bridget movies.

This is what I was working on this afternoon. I made bracelets like this a few years ago. I decided it was time to do a few again. Easy~Breezy to wear! I can make any colors your little heart desires. So what are you waiting for email me and order now, my Beadheads! Great gift for the holidays. The bracelet is finished with random colors in browns and a different type of green (muted). Love it! Earrings of course to match. I'm working and thinking a little more on how to design the necklace. What do you think? Like it? Love to hear your comments.

Not a great photo :-(  When everything is completed I'll post another photo.

Have a great day!

come see...

Craft Show in Avon By The Sea, NJ ~ July 14, 2012

Hi Beadheads!

 If you plan to visit the Jersey Shore the weekend July 14th please visit To Be Me Jewelry in Avon, NJ. There will be a Craft Show on the Boardwalk in Avon By The Sea  ~ 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.  Rain date will be July 15th.  I love that Avon has a rain's fair to the vendors. Many towns that offer craft shows do not give rain dates and do not return the fees to the vendors.

To Be Me Jewelry will have sea glass jewelry, lampwork bangles, and the famous Thought Waves Necklaces. All of my jewelry is handcrafted with good vibes. You will be able to pick great buys in sterling silver and gold-fill earrings, bracelets, necklaces, bangles.
