What is MAB making?

Man, I've been busy making stuff, and I thought I'd been slacking.
Also, two lovely ladies featured me in their blogs this week, the lovely and talented Waterrose in her Artist Series feature, and the sweet and creative Beyond5 featured the kittens today in her Furbaby Friday feature. These cats of mine are becoming more famous than Justin Bieber. They may also be older than he is, now that I think about it. . . Big thanks to both of them for the features.
Now, here's some new stuff, fresh from the bead board to you!
Joan Crawford steampunk necklace, with vintage watch casing
Seriously? It's Joan Crawford. That alone makes it fab.

Tudor inspired brass and teal necklace, with hollow teardrop beads
This is one of my favorite pieces that I have ever, ever made.

Celluloid scottie dogs charm bracelet, with crystals and pearls
Yep, these little pups came from my junk sale finds from last weekend.

Silver sand dollar earrings, with gray pearls

Vintage glass bead earrings , with purple lucite bead caps.
These beads are so old, probably around 1910, and so lovely.

Brass grape cluster necklace, with purple lampwork foil beads

Maybe I'll take the weekend off and not get out my beads and. . .
Yeah, right. . .

  7. Seeing that Joan Crawford necklace is so funny since my fiance and I just disassembled a bunch of watches and were talking about doing bracelets along those lines. Great minds... :) Lovely new items all around!
