Sometimes one just has to gift one’s self! I’ve recently started to bead embroider again so I’ve given myself an early Xmas present of some new bead embroidery accoutrements. I found this remnant of beautiful crinkle metallic lamb skin that I will use to line the backside of bead embroidered work. The vintage 4mm lavender crystal chain and 14mm x 18mm crystals shown above are preset in pronged findings that will become elegant additions to a “bejeweled” finished work, which I’ve yet to conceive. It’s all eye candy that stimulates my “creative juices” to flow.  I believe that one component of happiness is having something to look forward to and for me that translates to developing new designs and having the materials with which to bring them into fruition. I only wish I had a multitude of lifetimes ahead so I could continue to explore my craft interests and forever partake in the joy of making!
