The moment you get into a creating groove and look at the clock thinking it might be lunch time but the numbers glowing back at you say 9:25pm.

I've had several days like that in recent weeks, and trying to explain the stupid smile on my face in every day words is harder than tap dancing on a cloud.  Although having never tap danced on a cloud, or on anything for that matter, I'm pretty much taking some assumative license.

Assumative:  Adj. (uh sue muh tiv)
Full of, characterized by, or showing assumption or readiness to believe a word is actually a word when it is, in fact, not.

I've been working on a couple of custom orders in both the bead and jewelry departments.  The jewelry projects are surprising because of the repitiousness I don't typically allow to creep into my jewelry designs, but more on that later.

Repitiousness: noun (reh puh tish us nis)
(See Assumative)

I designed these for one of the custom bead orders, and because I needed 100 sets I made 106.  It's like "new" math, which is apparently way harder than just regular math.

I've got these extras laying on my desk now so I listed them in my shop.

Painted Desert
approx 9mm
organic faceted nuggets
velvet matte finish



  1. Hi Juli,
    Those are beautiful beads and really do look like the painted desert. I know what you mean about repetitious work. I have an order for 4 beaded pendant all the same design and color.

  2. Hey Juls I have missed you. Love the beads. Yes they pull the desert out in me. Still on the OR coast Yuckkkkk. Are you coming soon?
    Off to check out your store.

  3. I am so glad that you are going to be letting us know about extras. I just love this set.
