Bead Blogger Round up

I have one more day off from work. It's been nice being away from the office for over a week now. Last week I was away in Florida and then the long 4 day holiday weekend after that. I wish I didn't have to go back. I'll have to be sure to make it count, tomorrow.



I really have been enjoying my time in the studio making pretty things. Here is a photo of one of the necklaces I created this morning. An asymmetrical, this and that necklace with some art beads, some stones, so of this, some of that.
My mind is blank for an appropriate title!

  6. How about Walk Through the Woods, or something like that? It reminds me of the earthy colors/things you might see if you went for a hike through the woods...turquoise skies, twigs, birds, leaves, rocks, etc. Like it alot!

  10. Very earthy. I immediately thought of "Nature's Bounty". A lovely mix of this and that, artfully arranged, Lorelei. See what a little time off can do for you?

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!
