It's taken me a little longer than I wanted, but I guess it's still in time for fall weather. You can now grab detailed instructions and word charts for my "Queen of the Faire" cuff bracelet from my Etsy store. If you're still looking for a fun Delica bead project before the holidays, this would be a good one! https://www.etsy.com/listing/880667864/queen-of-the-faire-instructions?ref=shop_home_active_1

The Empress from my New Era Elements Tarot made it into a new release by Taschen publishers! They are starting a new series of illustrated art books called the Library of Esoterica. The first volume to be published deals with the tradition of the Tarot. You can check out their new publication here. It's going to be released this month and I'm excited that part of their proceeds will benefit the Loveland Foundation, which provides therapy support for Black women and girls. From their website: "The Loveland Foundation was established in 2018 by Rachel Cargle in response to her widely successful birthday wish fundraiser, Therapy for Black Women and Girls. Her enthusiastic social media community raised over $250,000, which made it possible for Black women and girls nationally to receive therapy support. Black women and girls deserve access to healing, and that healing will impact generations." I am so glad to be able to be a part of this effort and to contribute to the amazing

Well, I did take a 3 day hiatus from DA, I even took some screenshots of the "pre-Eclipse" look of my site, just for nostalgic purposes and I guess now we have to see if we've made any kind of impact on the site owners' thinking. With plenty of time on my hands while sheltering at home I've put together some new instructions for some of my bead jewelry and objects. If you are looking around for new skills to pick up, or for a new project to tackle, here are my latest how-to's: Corona Virus Model Mumbai Market Caribbean Holiday 4 Elements Kaleidocycle For some simple demos of all basic beading techniques you can also check out my youtub

Hi! Daisy waves hello

Just wanted to let you know that I featured your work in Stunning Craft Showcase #02 in case you didn't get the notification (I heard from people that not everyone got their notifications due to some website malfunctioning).

So, maybe, if you'll be interested and would have a couple minutes of your time, you can check out Stunning Craft Showcase #02 (March 2021) and look at some lovely works. :happybounce:


Have a wonderful day~! Daisy claps

Thank you so much! Going to check it out now.

My pleasure! :hug: Happy to be of service! Flower Heart
