what, no posts for 2 months then 3 come along at once? I await the bus comparisons….
Having added and added to my bead stash on and off over the past few months, I was keen to have a delve and see what inspired me on this cold cold winter’s evening. The first thing that caught my eye were some ceramic heart shape beads I had in red and in a soft green. I had also recently acquired some headpins with flowers and stars on the end, so I had a play around with these and some lustred acrylic beads, and knocked up these little loveheart earrings on sterling silver fish hook wires. I quite like them as they catch the light a treat too – very Valentine’s Day!
Suitably fired up, I dug deeper and came across the most BEEEYOOTIFUL green beads. I have had them quite some time in my box of tricks – like some kind of demented magpie, I hoard gorgeous looking things with no idea of what I shall make with them… And so I can’t remember exactly what they are now, but the delectable name “malachite” is niggling at the back of my mind, so it might be that. That name reminds me of “Angela’s Ashes”… I digress (I am VERY tired!). They have the shimmering emerald gleam of a dragonfly’s body in the heat of summer. I would love a dress in this colour. Mmmmmm.
I can’t remember what type of gemstone the pale milky stone is either, but I loved them together, and it made me think of a mist hovering above the water as the dragonfly darted about.
So I thought I’d share them with you before I dragged myself up to bed, even if only to say I have begun to make inroads into the horrifically abundant bead stash….before the order I placed in the sale today arrives!
