The other after

Here is the missing "After" to yesterday's beads! What do you think? Pretty wild huh? The photo needs work. I can't seem to get a good shot of it. It is too yucky outside. But this will do for now. It isn't exactly what I was thinking last week, it turned out a little different but it is very close. I like it. It is going to take a special person to pull it off with just the right outfit. I will try and get a photo later today with it on my neck so you can see how it lays, it looks really cool. I think is definately an "Art" piece, don't you?

We woke to booming thunderstorms this morning, its very cold and gray out. I don't mind one bit, I could use the break. This kind of weather always has me curling up wanting to snuggle & relax. Between Monday night's torch session and yesterday's long day of cleaning & beading, I am whipped. While Lauren was at school I really wanted to make some Mod Dot beads but found I wasn't in the mood so I assembled this new necklace instead. I still used my torch though, lol. I made those links as double ended headpins out of pure silver so the beads are trapped on. I used the torch to melt the silver and make the pinballs. I really didn't have the energy to do a whole lot else. But maybe I will get a second wind. I can make Mod Dots tonight after LOST or there is always this weekend.

It is school picture day today! The boys woke up extra early to take showers before school. I trimmed the hair around their ears so they don't have weird wispy wings, lol. The both picked out handsome sweaters and Jacob begged to have the "indigo" colored background instead of the standard "slate". $4 extra just to change from gray to blue, I think it is rediculous! But I gave in. It was Lauren's very first time getting a portrait done. She was sooo cute. She wore a very pretty purple dress and I tamed her curls with detangler a little bit before school too. I hate waiting 2 months for them to come back :( I want to see them NOW! LOL. Oh well, hopefully they will be here in time for Christmas cards.

Anyway, that is about it for the day. I will see what I can come up with for tomorrow.

Kerry, what you come up with just amazes me sometimes!!! I love the necklace and am so impressed that you torched the ends of the wire to make the perfect little ends!!! Just beautiful!!

Hey Carey ~ Welcome to my BLOG! I checked out your blog & website too. Your beads are great. I saw you took a go at making my "Breeze" necklace, "Rhapsody" is a lovely name for it. There will be a full tutorial for it in the March 2007 BeadStyle Magazine.

Stop by anytime!
