Fresh From the Bead Table

Don't be alarmed - these beads are really not the size of a Volkswagon - I was just loving my macro lens...
 How are you getting back into the swing of things after the holidays?  It can be a real challenge to get the creative juices flowing in the post-New Year's slump.

The other day I decided to kick start a necklace centered around a Juls bead, combined with some turquoise rounds that had been hiding in my bead stash.  Here's what happened.


With the gray, gloomy days we're having around here recently, it's nice to have something that's the blue of a bright sunny sky!

I love the Juls bead and the neckstrap you created. Warms up my day!

Another classic color combo with turquoise: gold and pearl.

The necklace turned out beautifully.

By the way, I thought of your watch face necklace on New Years Eve- it was the perfect time to wear it. :)

Hi Bobbie,
Love the necklace. I have several of Juli's beads and I just love looking at them, but I'm always stumped on how to showcase them. You did a wonderful job of showing off the beauty of the turquoise and Juli's bead. I keeping busy by doing the January earring challenge along with other challenges.
