Yesterday was mommy's birthday and dinner was splendid and stuffed us to bits, but only after we had gotten lost in the peak traffic forever!! (Mom drove) Both of us were arguing abt directions in the car while matt and bro just sat there in terror. Later while waiting for food to arrive, matt commented how alike my mom and i were in terms of stubbornness - said it was clear I was my mother's daughter cos the way we argued and our mannerisms were totally alike! Isn't it funny when someone tells you how similar you and your mom are? In the past, I would have baulked at the idea but now it just brings a silent smile. Sometimes there is just no way to hide :)
Been working hard at jewellery lately and ta-dah, new pieces featuring 3 of the heart-shaped glass rose focal beads like the one fr Tinkle Stream ~ Just found out they're really lightweight Japanese acrylic beads called "tensha". Revelation!
Large amethyst czech beads, cluster of purple lovelies & a movable silver filigree heart on a teeny rollerball chain create a most unexpected layered effect. I like! (and oh don't forget the silver heart toggle too~ abt 17 cm long)
(very slightly longer than 18cm ~)
