If you give Sachiko a piece of Jewelry



This is the only Jewelry I have from Lia Sophia. Depending on where the light hits it, it looks green or sometimes it looks blue. I love it so much that I wanted something similar but in a different color...








So I made a pink one! I wasn't sure what color I should combine, so I did salmon pink pearl and lavender Swarovski. And that reminded me that...

I think I'll wear those today!

I love this post! It's so interesting how you get going with one idea that sparks another idea, before you know it there's oodles. The jewelry you made has beautiful beadwork.

By the way, I have to apologize for missing your comment on my blog about going for Thai food. We'll definitely have to plan it soon.

You're killing me! Love the jewelry. Make some to sell okay? I'm just starting to like jewelry myself. The post reminds me of that book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. You are the mouse.
