Happy Birthday Mom

In my "free" time when I'm not knitting, I occassionally pick up the beads. It's not got the same meditative quality of knitting, but it results in some pretty things. And, if it gets broken, I can fix it. If it gets lost, I can remake it. And if I see a gorgeous but pricey piece in the store, I can replicate it on the cheap.

Mom requested a long blue necklace, which she said she couldn't find in the store. This one was inspired by one I saw on an anchor woman. Mom said she was so eager to see it, she opened it a day early. She said she was pleased. But of course, she's mom. She has to be pleased even if its a macaroni strung on twine, right?

Ohhhhh! I love the beaded jewelry. I bet Mom did too! I didn't know you also worked with beads. You are so creative.
