More on Pat

Oh Goodie, so far so good, the pictures are loading. So, where was I, oh yes, the lampwork beads....

I love the colors in this one.

I could almost smell a lilac blossom when I look at this one. And some great vintage buttons from Etsy.

And just when I thought show and tell was over, Pat brings out this !

(yes, those are my knitted socks in the background, 'cause I'm sure you were wondering. Ok, admit it-- you didn't even see the socks, I know!)

The chain maille is my very favorite - it is so fluid and yet solid. The patterns are just fascinating and unfortunately the pictures are horrible. Pat has an Etsy store where you can get these beauties (http://www.jazmynjewelry.etsy.com/) and see much better pictures of them too.

Look at this gorgeous piece of work--aren't the colors wonderful?

We had lots of fun and actually managed to get a little beading (pat) and knitting (me) done. Tonight we had the first session of a pin cushion class over at the Niagara County Historical Society. Not worth posting a pic of the progress - so far nothing but a single line border. T-e-d-i-o-u-s, to say the least! AND I have to do another single line border next to that one! Funny how I get so used to beading just what happens to come out of my brain and then when I'm told to follow a pattern, I get a little cranky.

Such beautiful work! You guys make me want to put aside planned projects and start another cuff. Thanks for the link to Pat's etsy shop. I am going to check it out right now.

Hi Lynn! Enjoyed your post especially the vintage buttons...I think the chain maille is my favorite too but the socks' brief appearance was even more fun...Beautiful work Pat!

Oh man - looks like you had a GREAT time judging by those photos!

Love the lampwork beads, they are so pretty.

Those vintage buttons are beautiful as is all of the items created by Pat. You're so lucky to have a beading/creative friend so close by.
