Jewelry Juicy and inkspired 'splainin'

"Blue Tears"
bead woven necklace, an inkspired original design


I have been busy recently, with my etsy shop re-opening.

Lots of picture re-sizing, cropping and adding copyright and shop address labels.

"Fuchsia Ruffle" crochet-look bracelet

I have been digging into my jewelry storage area, picking and choosing and measuring for etsy listing.

"A Breath of Fresh Air" hand beaded daisy chain necklace

I have to slip in and grab computer time in between my husband looking for a job.
In a way, it will be nice when he gets a job
and leaves every day and then comes home.
I miss my alone time with my blog, my etsy stores,
keeping up with e-mail
and searching Google!

Ah, I see a photo I need to add my inkspired credit to!!

Back to jewelry:

"Netted Blues" necklace

I purchased this lovely strand of graduated blues glass drop beads at a bead show.
I made my first necklace,
then I had enough beads for a second,
and finally one more!
Here is the third:

"Denim Blues" netted necklace

I really like etsy to sell hand made items.
They are so easy to work with.
It is just amazing to me the amount of $$$ they do each day!

Today I guess I am self-tooting!
(as opposed to self-touting....)

Chihuahua recycled junk mail bottle cap magnet that really holds!

Oh, yea, another photo to add info to....

"Garden in Pink" one of a kind beaded bracelet

I have fun creating titles/names for my creations.
I think I get a glimpse of what it must be like
for those people who come up with lipstick shades!

So, how does one become a 'makeup' naming specialist?
I must have zoned during that career choice day.....

Here's a little side-note funny:
I was typing up a paper the other day,
and could not spell 

I am so ingrained to typing


"Fairy Bubbles" netted necklace
original design by inkspired

Have any of you ever wondered how I came up with
"inkspired" as a tag name?

It came about around 29 years ago or so,
prob'ly even 31 yrs.!
I was teaching myself to rubber stamp
(no stores or home parties back then)
and came across this wonderful magazine:


(That was the cover for the issue that had a theme of
"Hark the Herald Angels Sing" I think....)

...super, bizarre, fun humor!
Lots of techniques to explore!
A plethora of Rubber Stamp stores and sites to visit!

a RubberStampMadness entry, Corvallis, OR

they have a free place in the back to advertise if you want to find stamping pen pals, birthdays, anniversaries...
I sent in a request for pen pals, and kind of fell in to
'inkspired' !!
Some of my pals shortened it to 'inky' or 'inks',
but there were other stampers with that name,
or close to.
No other inkspireds!

So, I became 'inkspired'.
inky fingers, love to stamp, love reading, altered books, etc.
I have registered the name,
missed having it my domain name by 24 hours! (grrrr..)
I do have a domain name of 'myinkspired'.

Well, that's it for today folks!
I have more 'jewelry juicy' listings to add to my etsy shop:

Have a super, duper day
and don't forget to make someone else laugh!!
