Yes, it's that time of the week again.
Beads! (Oh, yeah...there's a little neck there, too. heh)
I love beading and it's recently occurred to me that it's something I haven't really talked about much here. The ones in the picture above are some of my favorites, which I happen to be wearing today. They're faceted fire-polished amethyst disc beads, spaced with amethyst rounds and silver seed beads. It's sad because I had a horrible time getting a clear pic of them that shows their true beauty. They have a finish on them that reflects the facets as the light hits them. This pic here to the right shows kind of what I mean.
Beading is a great hobby. You can make all kinds of jewelry for yourself, custom tailored to match whatever outfit you have in mind. You can also make cool gifts for your friends. I have made countless necklaces and bracelets for friends and family over the years. It's a dangerous hobby though - it can become very expensive very quickly and it's addictive. lol
Inanna and I share a love of beads, as well as El Sid (she works in a bead shop, lucky girl). Beads such as the ones seen above can cost you anywhere from 5 cents each to 40-50 cents each. Yeah...imagine how much this necklace would cost at 50 cents each. Yikes! I, thankfully, got these on eBay and got a great deal.
Well, I would love to talk more about beads, but work is calling. ug. For more skin-revealing fun, click on the HNT icon above, or go see Inanna if you want to see some of her fabulous bead-work. She's more of a freak about it than I am. ;)
