A Gift for a Dear Friend

Click HERE if you are still cruising the blogs like I am for the Bead Soup Party.

The Second Kiss Supine
I dabble in some beadwork, 
mostly I like the meditative state 
that making beaded spirals puts me in
the fun of trying new color combinations.  
I experimented with a combination of 
size 8 and 16 seed beads to create this spiral.
And the star pattern was in the book;
 "Beading with Cabochons" by Jamie Cloud Eakin
I picked up at the library last month. 
I found Sandy: Glass Art Cabochons on Etsy 
while browsing another blogger's bead work.
I had to get this cabochon 
and make my friend Diane this necklace for her birthday. 
(She chose the star shaped setting 
because she is an astrologer) 
She guides and inspires me to never give up- 
keep following my creative heart and mind and trust the universe to take care of me.  
She and her husband have a print of the painting-
 "The Kiss" by Gustav Klimt.  
She was thrilled that I made this for her.  
I apologize for the lack of pictures this week- 
I dropped my camera while on the tripod 
and thought I broke it. Yes sheer panic!!
After a few hours of browsing 
to see what the damage would be to purchase a new one. 
My daughter, Jessie (McG(eye)ver), 
fiddled with it and fixed it!!
I am eternally grateful to have her in my life and home.
So you will be seeing me on BTW, 
I Heart Macro and Flickr this week.
I will also be adding some new items to my etsy shops. 


  1. The necklace you made for your friend is beautiful. I love the how the colors compliment the cab and makes it stand out.

  2. The necklace you made for your friends birthday is beautiful. I love how the colors compliment the glass cab and makes it stand out.
