In honor of my fascination, I am offering 25% off my Egyptian pieces on Etsy! The prices have already been adjusted, and will be in effect until the end of October.
Shimmery emerald green beetle wings look great on gold!
It is hard though, to get things done when you are under the weather. In the back of my mind, I was thinking about how Stringing magazine had put out their deadlines for the 2010 issues. When I double checked them yesterday, I saw the deadline to email photos for an early approval for the Spring issue was today! I do like that they have that feature. So, I rushed around yesterday to complete a necklace I had an idea for. I had to make a trip to Michaels, then photograph it and send it off. I sure hope they like it! I felt rushed and am now doubting myself, but I don't think I would have designed it any differently if I had more time. I'm just being hard on myself - we are our worst critics sometimes aren't we?
I cannot wait to dive into these books! They all sound interesting to me. And there's nothing like the smell of old books! Which reminds me to mention that my two dogs LOVE to smell old books when you start to read them! I wonder what goes through their head, trying to figure out where each one has been and what has lead it to me!
Happy Fall Reading!
