I'm missing tropical islands and beaches so much today that I had to create something to remind me of those awesome days on the Bead Cruise! Although, at 90 degrees it's feeling rather tropical here today too.
I created these Hibiscus Petal/Leaf Pendants in some yummy colors. I'm rather smitten with leaf and teardrop shaped pendants at the moment and thought I needed some of my own.
Loving the colors, bright and fun but antiqued with an earthy umber.
Do not adjust your monitor, this photo is so sad to me.
There is nothing worse in my studio than a batch of burnt beads. It hasn't happened in years, I had adjusted my oven to work on a different project a few days ago and forget to set it back. Oh the waste, the horror. Oh the bead-manity!
Ok, so it wasn't exactly Apocalypse Now, but a few choice words may have been uttered.
Share your photos at the BTW flickr group and go meet some new beady friends!
