Blu-Cool Waters

This is my latest bracelet.

Despite my dislike for the outdoors, I love to swim - lakes, oceans, pools...you name it! So, I chose glass beads for this bracelet that would reflect the light blue of sky and darker blue of nice, cool water.

I wanted it to look eclectic, but it actually takes much more time to make sure it looks haphazard. Patterns always want to emerge, so I had to restring the beads a couple of times.

It is very pretty, and Juliet, I have a friend who is about to have her first baby, a girl. They are going to name her Emerald.... and their last name is Green. Emerald (something) Green. I think it's beautiful! (of course I'm not really entitled to ridicule anyone's name am I?)

Hey, October - Remember when I had that HUGE crush on Matt Green in college! I could have named my daughter Emerald, too! Purrfect!

Gosh, gee, wilikers! Y'all are too kind on my chidish attempts at creativity. Thanks so much!

I went to a new bead store in Rockford and some of their creations were just awe-inspiring. I have a long way to go!
