sticks, beads and strings
make wonderful, beautiful things

And then there were beads

So, I mentioned in passing that Mama and I picked up a necklace I had liked. What I failed to mention was that the necklace was in a bead store, and I was totally oohing and aahing and it was all so very, very pretty.

And then, we had to go to Wal-mart on Saturday to pick up the on sale school supplies that I mentioned in a different post, and we looked at the beads there, and I said to my mama, “Mama”, I said, “beading will be my next hobby, because they are just so beautiful.”

Well, my mother, she is an enabler, and my birthday is next Sunday. So. When we went back to Wal-Mart on Monday to get the puzzle glue and poster board that I mentioned in yet another post, she bought me my birthday present. It looked like this:

Mmm-hmm, baby. Beads. And findings. Oh yes.

I have a couple of kits in there, one for her in pink and one for me in blue, plus a bunch of little packs of beads which I may or may not photograph for the stash page. I sat down immediately and made this necklace for her.

I am under strict orders to tell you she designed this necklace.

Then I made this one, and she helped some with this design, too.

Yeah. Ya’ll, I like me some beads.
