Japan Relief Effort Then back to Work

      Last week sometime, I was moved to make a bracelet featuring a Japanese flag to raise money for the relief efforts in Japan. It was a simple pattern with just a few seed beads to depict the flag. Also available in black. I ended up raising $260! Not much looking at it from the big picture but I'm sure that will be stretched to help as much as possible. 100% proceeds went to the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund via GlobalGiving.org

     After that bracelet making marathon, my sights have turned back to build inventory to get ready for this year's hemp fests. I have finally reached 100 items in my artfire shop, woot woot! My most recent listing is of my very first hand spun bracelet. It's crazy to think it started out as a bunch of loose fibers and I transformed it into a bracelet, which is why it's the most expensive bracelet I have listed. It's made of a 50% hemp/50% bamboo blend, hand carded and spun on my truly fairytale spinning wheel. Think Rumpelstiltskin. I listed it at half the price my gal pals told me I should, we'll see what happens.
