New Shiny Beads Catch My Eye Like A Cat!

I am in a bead mood. Between waiting for paperclay doll layers to dry and drawings to be worked out, I bead. And, then I bead some more. I can't help it. I get distracted easily by all things sparkly and shiny and colourful. I was lucky enough to find pieces of Robin's Egg shell this morning! OOh, my favourite colour! Magick! See, I just got distracted-I distracted myself. Here are some new pieces. The one thing about beads is that they go so fast! Before you know it they are gone. I am looking into buying a "Bead Tree". I will plant it next to my "Money Tree" and all will be well with the world.
My good friend Linda made this amazing beaded Medicine/Magic Wand for me and the bracelet as well for a trade. I love her pieces-they are full of spirit and soul.
So, in return, I made her this Faerie necklace using a pewter Faerie Bead from the lovely ladies of Green Girl Studios www.greengirlstudios.com
Then, I updated my "M" necklace with my favourite colours-turquoise, aqua, greens and more but of course~
This "S" pendant necklace has been gilded with yellow gold and made for a lady whose little cat Sami died last year. Sami was a ginger cat with cream stripes. She had green eyes so I made it with gold, copper, creamy pearls, and green/gold beads. I so hope she likes it.
Finally, here is "Aphrodite-Goddess of Love" with a Flapper twist. She has been gilded with white gold and antiqued and beaded with various black and silver beads and silver peacock pearls. More to do!

These are wonderful - I especially love the one with the faerie bead! And I can never get over those pictures of yuur cats in dresses - they are so hilarious and charming...I wonder if my six-toed boy would stand for that? Thanks so much for lovely comments a few days back....
