I think the puppy just coughed up a bead.

I've taken such pleasure in seeing everyone else's creations that I feel compelled to share one of my own.

Because I name everything, I'm calling this one "Tropics."

Action shot (I'm not jaundiced. I just couldn't color correct this one to save my life!)


The turquoise beads came from an old power bracelet (remember those?) that was stretched out from years ago, and the orange/coral beads are from Blue Moon's Enchanted Planet collection, via Michael's. The card said semi-precious stones, but I can't figure out which stone it is.

And naturally I ran out of beads so I used a bit of silver plate chain to extend it.

There are at least 3 technical errors I made on it, but you can't see'em when it's on me. Smiley
