It’s no secret that I LOVE beads, but have I mentioned that I love flowers, too?
So, what would be the perfect thing to make me smile?
Well that would be a bead with FLOWERS on it!!!
During a very grey and slightly snowy yesterday – I made these earrings.
What makes you smile on a grey day? 😀
Oh Gosh, I love those! Those flowery beads are stunning, the colors are so soft and pretty and your choice of beads is just perfect! Gorgeous, Crystal! xoxo Paulette ;D
What makes me smile on a gray day, huh? Welllll, The Big Bang Theory. Thats good for a laugh on Mondays. That black actress on The New Christine on Wednesdays, and Black Jack any day of the week, (He’s my fur friend). O yes, of course, beads.
Stay warm sis.
So delicate and detailed!!You are so gifted!
Those are so beautiful!!! I love flowers and beads too 🙂 The colours are fabulous…
My dogs pull me out of a funk. They never talk back, they always love kisses and hugs, they never get mad and ignore me, they wouldn’t ever hurt me. I’m not too fat for them, not too ugly, not too loud, not too annoying. They don’t care about my hair or my clothes or my job or my opinions. They’re pretty darn perfect, if you ask me 🙂
Those are so pretty..Come on Spring!!!
Those are so pretty! I’ve been meaning to ask you (and I apologize ahead of time if you’ve mentioned this before), but are you self taught in jewelry making or did you take classes?
One thing that makes me smile on a grey day is a good nap. I don’t get many of those any longer with a toddler. Sometimes I’ll get lucky and she’ll cuddle up with me for a few minutes and we’ll cat nap. There’s nothing like snuggling up under some covers on the couch and taking it easy for a while; especially when it’s cold & dreary outside.
I am self-taught.
I do think that taking classes is a very good thing, though!
It’s just that, in my area, many classes have not been held at convenient times.
There definitely are some great books out there and the internet is a wonderful resource for learning. You can even search youtube for lots of videos on jewelry-making. 🙂
I have a great friend – a furry Golden that keeps me happy when days are grey.
I also have grandchildren that are a delight to watch and listen to. Grand children are so much better than children! (hee hee)
SWEET!! I love the colors and the wire wrapping technique. By Crystal you’ve done it again!
Wow those are great! Just the thing to brighten up a grey winter day.
Beautiful earrings! I love the flowered beads.
My 3 crazy basset hounds make me smile on a grey day. They are always doing something very bad, but when I look at their cute droopy faces (and their stumpy legs and huge feet and long bodies) I can’t help but smile at them! Especially when all 3 are running across the yard in pursuit of something (or usually nothing). They are the comedians of the dog world in my opinion.
These earrings should be part of
The Snow Queen fairy tale.
A beautiful beacon in the cold
My cats bring me sunshine.
