What I have been working on
This is pics of the peyote stitch bracelets I have been making to sell at the art shows It is done one bead at a time sewn with 30lb Spectra or Power pro fishing line so they last and last...Spectra is a far cry from the monofiliament we used to use in the OLD Days?? LOL...
It is the stuff they use for deep sea fishing nowadays and does not deteriotate like the mono stuff does.
They are all decked out with crystals, and sparkles of all kinds ...the Gold one has Discontinued Metalic Gold swarovski crystals on it...There is one with blue flowers I call forget-me-knots and another similiar one with pink flowers which I did not embellish the top of...I use what is called a 6 ought bead to create them so they are substantial but not heavy...
This is one of the styles I taught many classes in how to do at my bead store...they are a blast to make ...no patterns just colors colors colors everywhere...
I hope you enjoy seeing what I have been up too
They sell for between 35.00 and 100.00 great sparkle no one else has...
all one of a kind
Have a day full of blessings
Why I create (my new name Lorri Lee Glennon)

- Having been a artist literally all my life, I love color and dimension.I learned to sew at age 10 , by age 13 started a stuffed animal business, which grew into a collectable Teddy Bear Business for 15 + years. I opened my own bead store specializing in Spontaneous Creation classes and love to teach everyone they could be creative and open the door to their imagination.I recently returned to one of my favorite art forms taking photographs my father gave me my first camera when I was a child and I have loved photography ever since. I took professional family portraits and weddings for the first 5 years living in the Outer Banks, I am now shooting Family portraits again and sharing my love of the Outer Banks through my blogs. Be creative, walk in faith and never give up....It all happens in God's time
