A nice surprise

After a tiring day at work I arrived home to find a package at the door, it looked like a book but I hadn't ordered anything - so I opened the box and found this very nice book from Bead & Button magazine -

Inside is an article for earrings I designed that originally appeared in this issue of Bead & Button

How nice to see it in a hardbound book with all the other lovely projects

Here are some close ups of the earrings - I call these my "specimen" pictures - they're not very interesting photos, I just pin 'em to a card and shoot.

The center beads are 12 mm, 8 mm and fire polish drops.

Fairy in jar, continued . . .

A fairy stopped by - just long enough for me to take her picture and then she flew off. I guess the jar is working!

Fairy in a jar . . .

I've noticed a lot of people have captured fairies in decorated jars; while it must be nice to always have a fairy around, I don't like to see creatures in cages - so - I thought I'd decorate a jar and see if a fairy would move in. Totally free to come and go, maybe just hang around the studio for a bit -

Lots of glitter and sparkle, pretty flowers and some rhinestones - I'd like to move in! Now it's time to be quiet and wait.
