Wait for it

Jewelry, Musings

I’ll let you in on a secret: I’m a glutton for beads. I like options, and with options come new ideas and designs and an emptier wallet I guess. So that’s why I was more than ecstatic when I got a surprise box in the mail the other day. It was a delayed birthday present from my best bud and I wasn’t allowed to open it until we could Skype the unravelling. And that wasn’t until 1 a.m., by which point I was surprisingly too exhausted to wait any second longer. But when I opened the box and realized that inside was a cigar box packed full of new colorful beads, it was all I could do to yell THANK YOU and smile like the big dork I am over the webcam.

Here’s a sample of what I got:

Plain bananas & the new beads

Can you spot the best ones? Yeah! Those tiny plain bananas are to die for! I’m going to work on a plain banana exclusive collection, which will feature these. So all this color and all this variety, brought back inspiration, and despite dwindling supplies, I managed to work on a few things today.

I leave you with one of the new necklaces. The evil eye is a prominent part of Greek culture, and hey, who doesn’t want to be on the safe side of things after all?

Make them green with envy.

On a separate note, I discovered the wonders of bookporn and I honestly never thought there were people out there who found it great. Thank you Stan, for the link and yes, I’ll be looking for the perfect little locations too.

Until then, back to the beads, thanks to G.
