I have had a couple of people email me recently, asking for advice on the bead business. Seems I put on a professional appearance and a friendly face that invites people to ask me such questions. That makes me happy, and I do like to help, and to inspire. But lately things have been challenging (as they are for most people, in these trying times) and I have had some setbacks and some difficulties that have made my business and my art making harder, so sharing hope and inspiration with others has been challenging as well. I cannot really share the key to my success if I am not feeling particularly successful, I suppose. These feelings will pass, I am sure, but for now I am just feeling a little reserved and waiting for a little hope and maybe a bit of karma will come to me.

Key to Success
This key carving is the companion piece to the lock that I showed yesterday. I am pleased with it. I am rather curious to see it in other colors, and I am finishing up a bunch right now for tonight's kiln, so in a few days, I will get to see just that. I am doing them with other hole configurations, too, which will be a bit easier to use in jewelry.
