Hello folks, is it August already? Omigawd, where, oh where has the year gone?! The summer has been rubbish this year - unless of course it redeems itself by giving us full on sunshine this month. One can but hope.
I was walking past the park near my house and saw a freak ray of sunshine light up the rainwater dripping from the shrubs - that was the inspiration for the necklace I made this week. Four strands of citrine beads, each one accented by a champagne coloured baroque pearl, with spacers from Greece - little plump electroplated ceramic square beads. I found the baroque pearls in Bangkok and couldn't resist them, each one is almost 1.8 to 2 cms in size, irregularly shaped, and quite beautiful.
A little clasp made of mother of pearl in the shape of a flower was a fitting finishing touch, don't you think?
I have been embroidering beads onto a piece of felt, and that will eventually become an art deco pendant - it isn't ready to be revealed yet. That's me for this week, folks. I have friends from school coming to stay with me this weekend so may not have the time to do much beading.
Have a fabulous week and I'll catch you next Friday, same time, same place.
