Gorgeous! Plus, a little mystery in a little blue box! You'll have to wait a bit to see it!
First, a lovely toggle clasp!
Some beautiful "Tahitian-look" Swarovski crystal pearls in two sizes
and, how do you like this string of ivory Czech glass beads? :)
Sparkle! I love sparkle! And, I got it with these Fuchsia Swarovski crystals!
Now, do you want to see what was in that little blue box?
Well, I have always heard that good things come in small packages!
This was no exception!
I was just blown-away when I opened that little box!
I think you will be, too!
Take a look!
WOW! Told ya, didn't I?
It is a beautiful lampwork vessel! An aromatherapy vessel!
Since I've had so much pain with my back this summer, Linda was so sweet and thoughtful and said lavender oil is supposed to help with pain. She had made an aromatherapy necklace for a friend of hers who has arthritis and she and her friend thought I would benefit from it, too! Isn't that just the sweetest sentiment? I love it and know I will have so much fun working with all these pieces to my soup mix!
Got to show a couple of other views of this lampwork piece! It is so dimensional!
and a back view, where you can see all that swirl of color!
One more little 'happy' she sent me was . . .
. . . this little notepad she made. I love it! It's where I've sketched some ideas for my design with the wonderful assortment of things Linda sent me!
