It's almost 11:30 p.m. and Michael and I just finished walking our evening route, later than we would prefer, as usual. Lucy was glum that she couldn't go. Hopefully after her doggie surgery she will be back in walking shape by fall. That seems like a very long time from now.
My submission for Bead Star sponsored by Beading Daily is at left. Tonight at midnight is the deadline. As usual I waited til the last moment to get it finished, formatted and emailed . I am loving pearls more and more and have been collecting faceted pearls in particular. This necklace is called A Little Bird Told Me and is comprised of a sterling stamped pendant I made a few nights ago, a Green Girl Studios iridescent bird wing, Bali sterling cones and pearls, pearls, pearls, with a copper lobster clasp. I'm really loving the look of mixed metals, especially since silver is so very expensive.
I haven't submitted to many contests but one never knows. The top prize is a trip to Santa Fe, one of my favorite places on earth. That would be too, too lovely. Right now I am going to bed happy I managed to finish the submission. Otherwise it's a fun creative challenge to create new finished pieces for the first time in a while. I've been kinda stuck on bead making lately.
