When not consumed with making encased murrini beads over the past year, I’ve been working to perfect my pulled dot beads. Thanks to a new tutorial I recently purchased I have ‘connected the dots’ (ha! :D), had a light bulb moment, and at last this technique finally clicked for me. Now, I have a new obsession… 😉
With Fall approaching I thought these pendants would be pretty with some soft colors reflecting the season. Maybe if wish for it hard enough Fall will come early for us this year! 😀 It’s definitely a lot cooler in the mornings but by mid afternoon we’re still reaching the high 90’s 😦
Who else on the west coast woke up at 2am to watch the Royal Wedding live on TV? I for one was not about to miss this historic event!
After all, I have such fond memories of waking up very early as a young girl to watch Princess Diana marry Prince Charles. I was thrilled my two daughters wanted to wake up at “o’dark hundred” to share this special occasion with me as well. I hope it is something they’ll never forget.
Sure, I could’ve recorded it and watched it later, but there is something about seeing it live with the rest of the world that was so exciting. 😀
I was really inspired by all the rich gold tones in Prince William’s uniform, the amazing decor of Westminster Abbey and in the beautiful wedding photos taken at Buckingham Palace. So much decadence!
I tried to capture that stunning opulence in this collection of beads named ‘Godiva’.
