I find that getting ready for one of my jewelry parties is extremely exhausting. It creates more angst than I care to deal with however, the rewards are great!
So, I have been designing my signature funky pieces at a fast and furious pace. I am always afraid that each design may be my last, but thankfully that has not been the case. My craft table looks as if a gigantic bead bomb landed on it.
Check some of my new pieces that I will be presenting.

Somewhere I have never traveled
I wrote the following poem after reading several of E.E. Cummings poems and being inspired by his style.
Blackness swallowed me that night
Before lay miles of loneliness
Silence so palpable, wondrous, still
Floating on waves of God’s breath
was thy here near inside there nowhere or will I never know?
i am my savior

I do sing for my closest family members who cringe at the mere opening of my mouth; nevertheless, I derive so much joy from torturing them with my spontaneous solos. My mother often laments, “Poor Junie, I don’t know why you can’t sing because you want to so much.” Yes mother that is the problem in a nut shell. When my daughter was a baby I always sang songs that I made up at the spare of the moment, little love songs for my special girl. She loved them. Poor baby was tone deaf. Of course that baby is now seventeen years old and threatens to choke me if I dare sing another note in front of her. Where did all the unconditional love go?
Once, a co-worker told me a story about her singing voice. Her voice, by the way, is soulful, strong, and beautiful. She went on to tell me that she could not always sing. At some providential point in her life, she allowed grace to enter and it was at that precise moment that her vocal cords began to ignite in song. It was a miracle. I was amazed by her story and quite honestly, believed every word of it. So, I have concluded that maybe grace will grant me a beautiful voice as well. Until that day I will continue exercising my vocal cords to the horror and astonishment of anyone who happens to be nearby.

The blue and white porcelian bead served as the major inspiration for this design, but I have also added a couple of african trade beads and an old coin into the mix. I have collected many blue and white pieces and display many of them in my kitchen. As you may have guessed, blue and white are my favorite color combination.
