Officially in love!
I had this little brilliant idea for a charm based an a block print I did of fireflies in a jar. And it turned out just like the print. Art inspired by life, beads inspired by art. Love, I tell you. Love!
I've worked up a whole series of new charms. My favorites will go to Bead & Button. Here we have a dragonfly and Queen Anne's Lace. Yep, I'm ready for warm summer nights, watching fireflies in the distance, hearing crickets put on a show, drinking ice tea while citronella candles flickr on the porch. I'm ready for cookouts and splashing in the pool. And SLEEPING in and a loosey goosey schedule. But first I have to survive the prep for Bead & Button and then I can play like a carefree kid on summer vacation!
Here is the block print, carved and printed several times with different plates and colors.
So that's what is on my bead table table. Hop on over to the flickr group and see what the rest of the beady gang is up to today!
