Being Inspired to Create

So it’s late February again. Grey, rainy, cold. The rush of the holidays is over and summer seems light years away. Year after year I find myself wondering how to┬áhandle this lull.

I found myself at a small local bead show just a week ago and found some very fun inspiration. Paper beads. Light weight, colorful, fun shapes and handmade. I was seeing lots of possibilities before I even completed the purchases!

I created colorful and fun bead mixes in shades of yellow/pink/orange, blue/yellow/red/green and lavender/pink/aqua. Each mix has lots of different shaped beads in coordinating colors. I already had fun three strand bracelet connectors so I was off and running!

These are just a few of the beautiful sea glass and paper bead bracelets I have created . This mix includes yellow and pink sea glass. I am so excited about these colors and looking forward to Spring!

Hi, my name is Cathy Kelly! When I was introduced to sea glass I didn't know that it would become such a passion for me. Whether it's walking on a beach or wading in a river searching for sea glass and pottery, creating jewelry and crafts, searching out the history of a piece of glass or pottery, or marketing and selling online and at craft fairs, I enjoy every aspect to it's fullest.
