Morning coffee and bead contemplations....

I seem to be having a love affair with hematite and fuschia. First there is abacus in the book, with hematite size 11 charlottes which catch the light and sparkle. Now Queen Anne's Lace my bracelet for the Bead Unique retreat! The third colorway is hematite and fuschia and it's quite beautiful. Originally I had planned some pretty fuschia faceted czech glass beads for the accent bead, but decided that the Swarovski briolet bead in jet hematite 2x would be wonderful......discontinued! Darn it all. What's a girl to do?

Tahoe promises to be quite a bit of fun. First of all crisp mountain air, beads, Sherri Serafini, Beki Haley and me! Lot's of excellent beaders, in a beautiful venue. I'm looking forward to it.

Your new colorway is perfect for my new fuschia and black outfit. Yay! Getting really excited about the Retreat. It will be great to see you again. Can't wait for the classes.

That is, by far, my favorite project from the book. Well, okay, maybe it's ONE of my favorite projects from the book. I am going to have to make this bracelet. And purples, the hot color of the season. You are so in the know, girl!
