It’s Sparkly!

When I was nine or ten, I became interested in beading.  Mom bought some beads for me, and I got others from my grandmother.  After making a few things, the beads were retired, and they have been in a box in the basement at least since we moved (about four years ago).  The other day I got “the bug” to make a necklace, and I just had to take the beads out and look at them.  Well, I found a bead mix with some lovely blues and whites, and they really appealed to me.  Using this “Ice Blue” bead mix, some pearls, and some small crystals, I made this necklace.  I am quite happy with how it turned out!

It turns out that necklaces are also lots of fun to photograph, so I took quite a few photos. 🙂


The necklace


And now the fun begins!






Once I got the flashlight out, it was so fun catching those sparkles!




I especially like this photo and the one following


And what do you think of the snow? 🙂

  1. Its fun! Have you gotten real snow yet? Here in Colorado it snowed today with a high of 21. Saturday it is going to snow again with a high of 18 (that’s when we are playing fife and drum outside).

    1. No, we haven’t gotten real snow yet, although I hope there will be some soon (I LOVE snow). It’s starting to get a little chillier, though, so I’m hoping that means real snow is not that far behind. Are you enjoying your snow? 🙂

      1. So far I have just looked at it (which is enjoyable). I and several others have been sick with various colds, so going out in the snow hasn’t been as appealing as it usually is.

        1. Hope you and the rest of your family feel better soon. I thought I was coming down with a cold, but was able to ward it off with the help of some herbs. Noah’s got it now. 😦
