A few new bracelets
I'm afraid that's all I've been up to lately, just a few Royal Poinciana seed bracelets. Apart from the Royal Poinciana seeds the first one contains 4mm round amethyst beads and 3mm tanzanite AB Swarovski crystal bicones, the second one has 4mm round tigereye beads, 4mm Czech topaz fire polished crystals and 3mm jonquil AB Swarovski crystal bicones and the third one 4mm Swarovski bicones in light azore and turquoise.
The tigereye+crystal and the light azore and turquoise Swarovski crystal ones are now available at Trudy's Island Art in the Kailua-Kona International Market. The tanzanite AB Swarovski crystal + amethyst one is on my website (or will be soon) for $25.-
Dealing with the second staph infection caused by a spider bite since the beginning of the year, the antibiotics for that (beats losing a leg by a long ways, but 4 times a day equally spaced is a bit of a problem in the long run) and a rather nasty cold on top had me more or less out of action for a few days. It looks like all of this is going away now so that if the weather cooperates I may get to make some beads with my new glass and frit, anneal them in my new kiln as well as finally all the old ones - after catching up with a lot of other stuff, and getting rid of the crab spiders in our yard.
