show and tell.....
Today felt a little like Christmas.
I had to go to town today for parts and tires for the shop, so I made the most of it and hit Michael's for the 50% off bead sale ;~)
I actually had a purpose for going, not just the compulsion to own more beads, though that probably factored in at some point in the decision making process, but I wanted to find the "perfect" beads to go with this ~~~
I recently ordered a gorgeous focal bead from Julsbeads
It's that one right in the front. It screamed at me as soon as I saw it!
!!! And now it's mine, ALL MINE!!!
MINE!! MINE!!! MINE!!!
( Ahem. Sorry.)
OK, anyway, I had a few worthy colors to go with this guy, but I really wanted to do this justice.
(And, just so you know, I am making this one for ME.)
So I went shoppin.
Obviously, I have no idea how I'm putting this together yet.
♥ Aren't they purty?♥
Even my husband, the "Do you really need MORE beads?" guy, said..
"Oh wow, those are nice."
For a snow machine fanatic, 4 wheeler freak, automotive tech, computer geek that tolerates my obsession with all things pretty, that says alot☺
These beautys are destined to be rings, soon, with any luck.
And, I have started my new addition to the Melodia series....
Please remember that I know I CAN NOT draw.
So this is kinda what I am aiming for. ☺
This is where I am so far....
It actually took two hours to "sew" the wire to the mesh.
But I like how He is turning out;~
