That's my inspiration! Isn't it beautiful?
Prior to blogging I tried my hand at beading. I really enjoyed making simple necklaces and anklets for my daughter and other little girls in the neighborhood. By simple I mean single strand with a toggle clasp and a fairy or teddy bear pendant on the necklace. Then I started blogging and witnessed all the awesome beadwork others were doing (and blogging about) and I got a little intimidated and figured I'd just focus on the writing.
An old grade school friend I've reconnected with on Facebook has been posting pics of her lampwork beads which made me a little envious. I'm envious of all the beaders who will be able to use her creations. Then I thought to myself, "Self, why be envious? Why not make something for yourself?" So there you have it. I'm bidding on this piece (so please find something else to bid on, there's several to choose from and new listings are added all the time). I'm not trying to make something to sell. You know me and grapes have a special bond *wink* so this will be something just for me. Something I can work on over the next several weeks and be the envy of all my friends when I sport a one-of-a-kind piece no one (including me) will be able to replicate. I'm so excited!
