I keep missing the library's open hours, so have re-read some books that I have here. I just finished two of Stephen King's -- Desperation and The Regulators. Desperation he wrote as Stephen King, and The Regulators he wrote as Richard Bachman. I really like how he took the same basic characters but got two different stories. I found several web site that did comparisions -- click here or here if you're interested.
I was on a roll today when it came to making jewelry -- I have been clearing out drawers of beads that have gone untouched for a long time, and was really happy with the results. You can see some of them by going to www.lorianderson.net and choosing the "What's New" option -- or take a look here at some pieces that I made with fall and winter months in mind.
This one was made with amazing boro lampwork beads by Jen Cook, orange chalcedony brios, and vermeil. I love it but the photo stinks. I need to work on that one.
This one is made with a polymer clay patchwork pendant and hand-knotted silk cords.
This one is made with large ovals of natural carnelian and gold-filled rings -- it's a longer one, and really dramatic.
So there are a few for you to take a look at. I can't wait for fall and winter. I dearly hate the heat and humidity! Thank goodness for air conditioning is all I can say.
