SOME PRETTIES




Getting back into the swing, and trying to absorb my surroundings this summer. A self imposed experiment, to think of a summer thing or event, and use this as a starting point for creativity. Talking without words. Here is my interpretation of cotton candy and fireflies.
I hand dyed cheesecloth for the blue earrings, and found the texture incredible. The amber beads in the other pair are from a deconstructed piece of jewelry, and they really are so special, it's a beady thing I guess.
Thank you all so very much for being here, and for looking!

LOVE amber -- I'm always afraid to buy it as I always am afraid I won't be buying the right thing. Your's resonates softness and I'll bet it smells good if it's rubbed.

Very well done!
