Yes that was my weekend! I seem to be rebelling against the to do list and took some time to bead for beadsake. Not to worry though, I made substantial progress on my Alaskan cruise piece. No previews until Carole has seen it, but it should make it's debut sometime this week. It is done in purply and bronze metallics and colorado topaz ab2x, surprise! There are lots of crystals and lots of sparkle.

But I did take a minor Sunday morning break to make this ring

and then add this outer layer, for those events when I feel the need to wear an over the top ring!

There are a lot of little things and quite a few big ones to get done this week...and it's going to be hot. I knew it was coming, we had a really mild 70 degree summer so far and then last week the inevitable high 90 weather arrived. I truly don't prefer to be hot, I do not look forward to the studio being 80, it is currently 77 at 9:00 a.m. We don't run the air until the inside of the house gets to 79, but my studio was a once open air room, since closed in. The roof is tin and it has lots of windows. Did I mention it gets hot and I don't like being hot? Yes I think I did.

Can a 50 year old woman say "sweet" without seeming too dorky?? What a beautiful ring! Schone!

Liz - I'm almost 51, and the first two words out of my mouth when I saw this ring were OH, SWEET! So YES WE CAN!

And my first thought was "Yes!" I like that ring, and then, is that a purple haze rivoli? It has so many beautiful colors to pick up on.

I love to bead rings, instant gratification and instant bling...I also have a problem of talking with my hands, which in turns creates distraction for everyone around me!

I have been working on the same thing...similar anyway. I am just learning how to create the bezelled rivoli. As I was doing it I was thinking what a great ring it would make. Look at yours! Beautiful! I'm 61 and I'm gonna say SWEET! I hope mine turns out half as nice. Connie

Marcia, That ring is beautiful, and yes, sweet. I think I want to make one. The extra beaded bezel is so clever!

Marcia, the ring is too beautiful for words. As you know, it's my favorite new piece of bling :o) I just love it!
