You'll have to excuse these crappy photos taken by me. My camera is not the best and the sun is so strong that everything is in a haze (although I do like the rainbow light reflections created in the first picture). I've been pottering around in my mum's studio all morning, trying to avoid the mountain of writing I have to finish this weekend. This is probably not the wisest thing to do, but I do like the result of my procrastination.
I pulled out a bunch of beads from my mum's vast collection, sat in the sun with my kitty and made some necklaces. What do you think of them? I made these in an effort to embrace summer this year. Every year I grumble about summer. You'll have to forgive me for this because you see, summer in Australia is often a brutally hot, rather than a pleasantly warm, experience. But I feel these necklaces are perfect for summer as they remind me of popsicles.
I didn't make the rings of course, they are handmade by elephantine and accessoreese. Aren't they the prettiest, most delicate rings you've ever seen? I hope this post serves as a good thank you to the two lovely ladies who made these rings.
