So, frit is tiny bits of colored glass that is used to make pretty beads. Yesterday I dumped a mixed up bit of frit into the jar with some silvered frit (sort of), anyway, I used the mixed up and made some really pretty beads to match some of the left over turquoise beads used in the earlier necklace & earrings. I think they turned out pretty good. Out of lemons . . . .

Absolutely LU-UH-OVE the colors in this piece, and the picture STILL doesn't capture the glow of these boro beads. Earrings and matching necklace, but you'll have to see me at a show to see this set together - an original design being protected till my next show. Or maybe not - they might just end up in my own personal stash . . .

One of our nieces posted this little saying on Facebook recently, and although it's not really a new saying, it gave me a new idea. I reeeally like how it turned out and just might be the perfect thing for our granddaughter's 13th birthday in a couple of weeks.
New keys for springtime, and they are so cute! Each has a little heart with a flower, and this one has an extra dangle of crystals. As you wear it, each dangle moves and creates a new look - something special for your special girl - girlfriend, daughter, wife, or yourself!
