which usually means that my creativity is on hold until the boys go back to school. We've been spending a lot of time at the pool and suddenly it hit me. I can take some beads to the pool and wire wrap them while I'm relaxing in the sun. So, that's exactly what I did. I'm getting a lot done and everyone is happy!
I had a beautiful strand of pearls that I picked up at the gem show that were calling my name. I took them, along with a vintage strand that my friend had given me and mixed the two together. I used a vintage brooch that I had already soldered to finish the piece.
I love the way it turned out.
I made another one using a religious medal and vintage heart I found at the flea market. For some reason, my brain always goes for asymmetrical.
On one side I used big white baroque freshwater pearls and on the other the gold pearl mixed with the vintage white bead again.
So when the kids ask to go to the pool,
I gladly grab some beads and we are off.
I hope you are enjoying your summer as much as I am!
