Sneak Peek

These days it seems I'm adding items to my "to-do list" faster than I can check them off. I did manage to cross off one important item this afternoon. I got my Bead Dreams Competetion submission completed and it feels good to have that done.
To the left is a sneak peek photo of my bead embroidered collar entitled "Dance of Time." The cabochon in the bottom center is a fossilized mudcrack from Morocco, which was cut by rock star Gary Wilson. The top center cab is a Ganesha image which is the Hindu elephant god one is supposed to call on to help remove obsticles. I think we could all use a little Ganesha power in our lives at times. The piece also contains a lampwork glass bead by Rashan Omari Jones, fossil ammonites, freshwater pearls, vintage jet and marcasite nailheads, pressed-glass beads, brass, precious metal seed beads, charlottes, three-cuts, vintage glass cabs and Ultrasuede. This little collar took just over a year to complete and I'm quite smitten by it, if I do says so myself! This will be a 'keeper'.
