Addicted to Sparkle

Hello everybody!  How are you this week?  Doing well I hope. I have been as busy as a bee working on my classes for The Art Studio, but I also snuck in a wee bit of time playing with my beads and wire.  I love love love sparkle in almost any form, so playing with bits of glass, crystal, and even pearls is a fun thing to do every so often.  As I mentioned before, I joined the bead soup bash, and I have been sorting some of my beads trying to decide what would be the absolute most perfect thing to send.  In the meantime, here are a few pics of some earrings, a few danglies, and a quick necklace I made this weekend ~

I am working on a bracelet for a dear friend.  Here are some of the swarovski crystal and pearl beads I have wired up so far ~ 

I will turn them into a bracelet for her daughter's wedding.  I'll show you photos of the finished product once it is done.  

Well, I need to get my rear in gear and get busy on some tasks, so I will close for this week.  Be sure to stop by The Art Studio to check out some of the new classes.  I will have another class in a few weeks, and Mo's class is available now too.  So stop in and say hello!  
I wish you a joyful and creative week ~ Pam

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
