|Egg Beads from Kelley's Bead Studio|
I found out about Kelley's Bead Studio from reading other blogs, that I have been following, and all that I read were glowing reviews. I forget when I went to her blog, but I totally fell in love with her eggs. I had been lurking must of the time until a few weeks ago when Kelley posted the most yummy delicious eggs that I had to have!
The cobalt blue eggs; the eggs that started me thinking about a plan. A plan to base jewelry off of paintings from our (mine and mom's) favorite watercolorist, Rena Brouwer. The cobalt blue eggs called to my painting Splendor.

I have already talked to mom about my planned design and she seems to like the idea. Now of course to implement it and cross my fingers that my idea works. The other beads in the box were ones I just loved and I couldn't let them go, my plan was only to buy the cobalt blue ones. YEAH RIGHT! MINE, MINE, MINE! Can you tell I am a little obsessive?
Here are the beads next to the painting. Hopefully when the piece is done I will put the painting and the necklace together to show you all. Cross your fingers for me that this will work. Now I just have to think of other ideas for all the other paintings that we have of Rena's. I blame mom, seriously I do. We could have our own gallery walk with how many paintings we own.
