Rocks Off On Hump Day

Sporadic posting here on the Blog.  I do have a couple of Beaders I have wanted to feature since Late Spring/Early Summer, but I cannot seem to clear my mind enough to write the post they both deserve.  I was stressing about this until I came to the conclusion that everything has a season.  And my heavy blogging season is Late Fall, Winter, Winter, Winter, Early Spring, Winter, Winter, Early Spring.  

In the meantime...ROCKS!

Lake Michigan...that Lake really does have the best rocks!!!)

Lake Michigan...beads were a bitch to photograph ~ metallic dark blue AB charlottes.  The rock is smoooooooth.

Lake Michigan...had to keep the bezel area exposed so that strip of pink on the rock could be seen.

Lake Michigan...the chain on this was really cool but impossible to is all teardrops that are clear AB with a Touch of Grey.  I also threw in a few fish beads for fun.  These bugles were hard to photograph too!  But at least with the bugles, you get the idea.  The teardrops just were a blurry blobby nightmare.

Photographing is always a... a... burden. That is the best I can do. I struggle every time. Glad you got through it and posted. Very creative.

So enjoyed catching up on your latest posts, Christine. You've really mastered the art of adapting your beadweaving to highlight the natural beauty and texture in each focal stone. I can see why you were drawn to each of them!

I totally get blogging as a seasonal thing. We must embrace the nature of cycles and make it work for us. Instead of struggling against it, let it flow.

The rocks are great! For me, there is something very symbolic about all of your rocks. I don't know quite what it is. Something about the history and journey of the rocks, the fact we are all lugging around rocks. We often have choices in what rocks we pick up, and what we do with them. You don't fight with the rocks, you connect with them and give them a new life, make people look at them in a different way. Rock on (lol).

You ROCK! These are all so beautiful. I adore how you've wrangled all these beautiful rocks into their own cages, while still showcasing their beauty. Wonderful!
