A Trip to San Antonio

I just got back from a trip to San Antonio. I had a great visit with my daughter and her family. Hannah and Evangeline are getting so big! Our plans for the week were to watch Heather's premier on HGTV's "That Clever". Heather showed how to make her Dragonfly pendant and a block print. You can order your very own Dragonfly Pendant from Humblebeads Congratulations on a job well done. I am very proud of you. We like to try new things when we get together with our beads and findings. Our stitch of choice was the herringbone. We put sterling silver wire through the middle of the bracelet and added a hand-crafted clasp. I like to make my own head pins and earring wires. I got a really great earring maker called EZ Earring from Danrek Jewelry Supply. I like the versatility of being able to make different styles from the same jig. I added pearls to the wires to create a one of a kind pair of earrings. I knotted pearl buttons and orange sponge coral beads to make a necklace and bracelet with matching earrings. After all this creating we did the Houston Street Fair on Saturday. It was a first time street fair put on by the mayor of San Antonio. I was so excited when I sold a pair of earrings to the Mayor's wife. The weather was beautiful. The best part of the day was when someone would come into our booth and say to Heather "I saw you on HGTV yesterday"! I spent my day with a celebrity The animated pictures on this blog were made with Bannershop Gif Animator 5 by Selteco Click on any image on this blog for a larger view.
