new beads

 

Friends, I’m very excited to start the week because I have a pile of new beads to work with. Just look at my new finds, aren’t they so pretty? I have great mix of vibrant red French pate de verre, gorgeous pink and gold Czech foil beads and some Swarovski rondelles for good measure. I can’t wait to work with them!

And as if that wasn’t enough, I also have some beautiful new gemstones to work with. I love my antique glass beads but I love gemstones too! And its hard to resist these faceted black spinels and pink topaz. They’re smaller than what I’m accustomed to but I’m looking forward to making beautiful pieces with them!!

Motherhood

| Jewelry

I was just thinking that cliché or not, Mother’s Day brings out all sorts of emotions in everyone.  For the lucky ones, it is a day of celebration and thankfulness. For some others it is a more difficult day.  One thing is for sure though, despite whatever relationship we have with our mothers or even our own relationship with the idea of motherhood, none of us would be here without her.  That’s a good enough reason to mark this day.

So, I made a little gallery of pretty things you could offer your mom. Or why not yourself if you’re a mom. I hope you like it.
