|Enameling Set Up|
Mom also finished putting together the necklace called "Spring". Mom sawed out a bird pendant for me which I then enameled in the colors of a finch. I used the last of my "egg" beads from Kelley (very sad day for me using the last of the egg beads) and ribbon from Jamn Glass. We accented the egg beads with blue Czech beads and they are connected with Sterling Silver wire. I am so happy with the way the necklace turned out.
I am so glad we were able to accomplish all of this before we head to my cousin's house for his birthday party. He turned 21 on March 2nd. I still remember when that boy was 11, when I came home from the Army, where does the time go? We had a nice time with our family and had fun playing with my cousin's dogs. I keep talking myself out of buying a puppy because there would be all and out war in my house with my five cats. But I so want a puppy, oh well.
I also wanted to share some goodies mom and I received from Bee Tree by m.e. Mom and I sort of went shopping after we hit her site during the Bead Soup Blog party. We did have about 10 items at first but we had to wittle down our choices to four. We have to be frugal right now until we have our first show of the year, the checking account is starting to be a little bare. Here are the gorgeous goodies we received!
