On the Work Table

And the love affair with peyote continues.  I experimented & used some 8/0 Czech seed beads instead of Japanese seed beads.  I didn't know if I could handle the irregular sizes of Czech beads but it's such a pretty mix of colors.  How could I say no?  I'm a sucker for Czech mixes & these have a Bronze Aurora Borealis finish.  Again, I played a bit & used a very sweet resin flower with a tiny fire polish bead in the middle. 
♥ Yep, love ♥

I also got some new cabochons.  Lots of pretty colors & shapes to play with.  Not enough hours in the day :)  I miss the days of staying up all hours of the night crafting, every night.  But it's part of being a responsible adult, part of scheduling things I've committed to: working out, running, dates with the hubby.  I'll make time to play with the new goodies & make more rings.

The bronze beads are simply gorgeous! You know, slightly irregular beads do lead to charming designs! Pearl
