Confession time. I’m a bead maker who rarely wears jewelry. I’m usually at home writing or in the studio making beads. It isn’t an existence that lends itself to getting dressed up. Or getting dressed at all for that matter. I could spend all day in my jammies and no one would know.
So when it comes time to actually go somewhere, I almost always forget to add a piece of jewelry. Sure, I have pieces. I display them at shows, pull them out for my bead events, but on a daily basis? I often have to dig around in my purse for a bead to show a stranger what it is I do when the subject comes up.
But now I think that is all about to change. I have a customer, Laura of Simply Adorning, who does the most amazing things with my beads. Man-o-man does she make them look awesome! I never knew my beads could look so good.
This peacock pendant was the first piece I got from Laura. She made one and sent me a picture. I knew right them I had to have one.
Then I saw this in her store! I’m a bit of a sucker for a ring, but when I saw my floral bead set in there…wow, just wow. I love this ring.
But this is the piece I adore. Simply adorning indeed. Just gorgeous. How could I resist wearing this at every opportunity?
You can find variations of each of these pieces in Laura’s Etsy store.
