Ceramic Conspiracy...

I took some time off from my basement design studio and spent a week at the beach with my family. It was a wonderful time for relaxing and getting lots of sand in lots of places. I had plenty of quality time with my crazy nephews and still squeezed in a little shopping at the local Outer Banks bead shops.

On one rainy morning, I found a craft show at a local high school and saw these great ceramic beads as soon as I walked in the door. They are brightly colored and rustic and fun and chunky and I loved them immediately!! I wandered over to the man working the booth with my hands full of them and he finally realized my need for some baggies with a laugh. Then, he proceeded to explain the conspiracies going on in Washington that I needed to look out for...hence, the "ceramic conspiracy" beads. I would normally get the name of the artist, but didn't get to this time based on our strange conversation. (He also made homemade peanut butter in his blender that morning.)

I have visions of these beads in lots of places, but my first take is for some funky keychains. I love my leather, so I used that as my base and threw in some recycled glass and wood bits for a very pleasing result!!
