Last weekend, when I met Katie Nelson at her beading class, she had a little present for me.
I feel so lucky, all these talented people want to give me things. And they're beautiful!
The focal and the little accent beads are by Heather Powers. I just love her esthetic, the colors and the shapes. It's more lovely in person than in the photos I've admired in the past.
And to top it off, Katie made a necklace with bronze seed beads, in a spiral pattern.
I have no idea how she does that.
At the class I was watching her, she was using little teensy beads to make a lovely spiral pattern necklace.
She says it relaxes her, although I think I'd be cross-eyed and tense like a harp string if I tried to do it!
I feel so fortunate to have such friends!
Thanks, thanks, thanks ... I will wear it and love every minute, thinking of both my friends who collaborated to make it for me.
