Sparkley Thursday

Yesterday I did a little bit of beading. I picked up the stones and the heart drop at the bead store here in town. We're fortunate to have a really great bead store here. I'm not much of a heart person, but when I saw this heart, I really liked it. Its made by Green Girl Studios and its Pewter (I usually use Sterling Silver), but I kept coming back to it as I wandered around the store. When I kept going to look at it, I knew I'd kick myself if I didn't get it. I used it with pearls, some small aquamarine round beads, faceted onyx beads and a tablet bead of kyanite. I strung and knotted the whole thing with aquamarine colored silk with my Tri Cord Knotter. I'm really happy with the way it came out! Here's a detail of the heart pendant. On the back it says, "Love Gives Wings." I love it when artists do something like that - adding a little bit extra to a design that most people will never see.

You can see the attention to detail in the pendant better in this picture, as well as the beads better. This has made me want to do more beading. Its been a while since I've done much with beads, but I really enjoyed playing around yesterday.
