|Jasmine is better than scented candles.|
While my plants have been busy growing, I've been busy in my workshop making things. I've been on a bit of a beading spree. My jewelry wardrobe grows, so much so that I had to go shopping for outfits to go with it. Metal smithing might slow me down, so I'm thinking of looking into a class at The TLD Design Center and Gallery in Westmont. This would also expand my design options because right now, everything is pretty much straightforward. They also teach glass bead making, which would be a nice addition to my craft repertoire, and further slow me down. An advanced class at my favorite bead store, Kasey's Beads in Naperville, would expand my design options. She's having a month-long string of sales on beads so I expect to do some shopping. The red carnelian/fire agate/clear quartz necklace includes some of the Czech glass beads she carries. She also had a great selection of quality findings, as well as natural semi-precious stone, spacers, crystals and other beading supplies.
