I've indulged in lots of new beads over the last couple weeks. I'm going to try to hold off on anything but little items (i.e. jump rings, clasps, etc.) until my birthday now (which is late March). We'll see if I can make it!

I don't have too much else to report aside from some new listings. I'm very close to 100 items (80 listed currently) and am looking forward to pulling out my cross-stitch again this weekend.

I have already gotten a couple wonderful comments about this piece.

I freaking love how this turned out. My two current jewelry obsessions - bead weaving and buttons - came together perfectly.

This is one of Jake's (my husband) favorite pieces right now.

We are currently getting 1-3 inches of snow in the Iowa City area so I will most likely be spending most of tomorrow indoors working on crafty activities. :)


  1. Hello Paula Ford, My name is Paula Ford also! I set up google alerts to see when my name is mentioned online(I'm an artist and paint landscapes)which includes all Paula Fords, and I always get alerts about you and your beautiful jewelry. I just had to write to say hello and say I think you are so wonderfully creative and talented! I love your jewelry! Paula

  2. My name is not Paula Ford, but thank for for the compliments!

  3. Nice new the photos on the sheet music.

  4. Thank you so much! You have beautiful jewelry pieces, too. I especially like this one:


Your comments mean so much to me! Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts, questions, and feedback.
