            I enjoyed working on some colorful jewelry this weekend. The winter is getting to me already, the super cold temps and the grayness of the skies have me craving color! I have so many beads, and I just love the way they look when they are all laying next to each other on my bead table, randomly mixed.....serendipity.....bead love. And did I mention sari silk makes me crazy happy,  so I had a rush of color energy and I hope it brightens your day!

Thanks for visiting and taking a peek!

As promised , here is the rest of the post on Terri's Christmas gifts to me! I saved the best for last! Terri made me this exquisite necklace, Love, Peace and Joy. Terri teaches an online class called Soulful Adornment and she is a master at creating these soldered and resin filled pendants, and I am just googly eyed over them! I tried it, and was not so successful, she really has a great talent, and she tells such a beautiful story every time she makes these necklaces, every bead and stone is a magical meaning in the journey of the story! Each necklace is so personal. When I took the photos I did not have the proper lights set up, so please forgive me, but I think you will get the idea. I think you will enjoy and marvel!

I am so lucky! Thank you Terri! I love wearing this treasure and feel the love when I do! Terri also included this beautiful little vintage black beaded bag to hold the necklace....SWOON......

Thank you friends for sharing this post with me! We are off to the start of a new week, and I wish you all good energy and happy days! Thank you for visiting! Hugs!

Yes, I am still here. You know how it is, when you haven't posted for so long, that you start to feel that as each day passes, and the time grows longer and longer, it gets harder and harder to get yourself together! Well, I just had to, and this is one of the reasons! I just had to share with you this incredibly beautiful and generous Christmas gift sent to me by my friend Terri of Artful Affirmations.  Terri is the most kind and generous soul, and she touched my heart so deeply with these special handmade treasures that she sent, and wonderful vintage items she took the time to find. Thank you so much Terri !

Aren't these pieces wonderful?!! The top photo is the tin that everything came packaged in, it is so lovely and dainty and nostalgic and I LOVE IT!  The dreamy bits of vintage laces and buttons....sigh....some special beads collected from various trips, teas for me to try and some I forgot to include in the photo...oops! 

MORE super special stones!!!

THEE MOST GORGEOUS tag I have ever seen...please click to see all the layers Terri has sewn in this tag, I will leave it up all year!

There is very very special necklace Terri also made for me, but that will be part two of the post, in a few days.....too much to post!

Thank you for visiting after such a long absence, and I will be around to visit all of you!

Happy New Year to all and and a healthy one too!
