That is fabularse Sue, even un-edited. You're really going great guns with this looming lark! I'm sure she'll love it  ;D

I made a li'l pair of earrings this morning

The round beads are 'polaris' resin, I love their silky shinyness, it almost glows!

Mmmm, polaris beads, I have some of those in my stash, they're fab.  Absolutely gorgeous colour scheme Lynn.  And I love the shape.

I didn't realise the shine would photograph so well in the Polaris beads Lynn - it's a wonderful photo.  :)

What pretties! Love the polaris and I don't have any yet!

I am able to share my Battle of the Beadsmith piece now, which is what has prevented me from making much else over April and May. Here is my second beaded bag, slightly more ambitious than the first one. It is called 'Oceanides' and took about 93 hours work. I based the design on Marine microorganisms diatoms etc, as I've always loved how complex they are.

If you haven't seen the other entries they are well worth a look, and Lynn's will also appear in due course: https://www.facebook.com/groups/419636224777912/photos/
